• Construction and Preliminary Analysis of Ovine Oocytes Proteomic 2-DE Map

    [Objective] To obtain ovine oocytes 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) maps. [Method] Ovine oocytes were solubilized in lysis buffer, and protein concentrations were measured using the method of Bradford and Ramagli. Then the samples were subjected to two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The 2-DE maps of ovine oocytes were analyzed through PDQuest 8.0. [Result] The Ramagli method could reflect concentration of oocyte protein more actually and could optimize the quantity of samples to get a 2-DE map with higher quality. The protein concentration measured by the Bradford method was higher than its actual value. [Conclusion] Each 2-DE map loading 700 oocytes is more reasonable.

    [Objective]To improve quality of oocytes maturing in vitro and to optimize in vitro culture system of porcine early embryos. [Method]Oocytes were cultured in the improved TCM199 and NCSU-23 basic media,which were added pig follicular fluid ( PFF) or high-quality fetal bovineserum ( FBS) both at a proportion of 10% ( V /V) . After in vitro maturation and development,effects of medium on maturation of pig oocytes anddevelopment of early parthenogenetic embryos were investigated using maturing rate of pig oocytes and development rate of parthenogenetic embry-os as indicators. [Objective] To improve quality of oocytes maturing in vitro and to optimize in vitro culture system of porcine early embryos. [Method] Oocytes were cultured in the improved TCM199 and NCSU-23 basic media, which were added pig follicular fluid (PFF) or high-quality fetal bovine serum (FBS) both at a proportion of 10% (V/V). After in vitro maturation and development, effects of medium on maturation of pig oocytes and development of early parthenogenetic embryos were investigated using maturing rate of pig oocytes and development rate of parthenogenetic embryos as indicators. [Result] After 42 h culture, the maturing rates of pig oocytes respectively cultured in the TCM199, TCM199 added FBS, TCM199 added PFF, NCSU-23, NCSU-23 added FBS and NCSU-23 added PFF were (54.2±3.5)%, (68.5±3.2)%, (69.3±3.7)%, (51.6±3.3)%, (63.2±3.1)% and (65.5±3.5)%, respectively. The pig oocytes cultured in the TCM199 or NCSU-23 that was added FBS or PFF had significantly higher maturing rate (P < 0.05). The development rates of parthenogenetic embryos were not significantly different between these six experimental media. However, the parthenogenetic embryos which developed in the TCM199 added PFF (36.5±4.8) had significantly more blastomeres than those developed in the TCM199 or NCSU-23 (18.7±3.2 and 15.5±2.4, respectively) (P < 0.05). [Conclusion] The improved TCM199 and NCSU-23 added PFF or FBS can largely promote in vitro maturation of pig oocytes and in vitro development of early parthenogenetic embryos.

  • Comparison on In-Vitro Culture Methods of Yak Endometrial Gland Epithelial Cells

    [Objective] To develop in-vitro culture methods of yak endometrial gland epithelial cells. [Method] The gland epithelial cells were isolated from yak endometrium by explant culture method and digestion culture method, respectively. [Result] In the first method, the cells isolated from the endometrium explant could merge into monolayer after 8-d culture, and they could be purified by gradation digestion with trypsin. In the second method, the endometrium explant were first digested by collagenase II by incubation at 37°C for 2.5 h and then further digested in fresh 2 g/L collagenase II for another 2.5 h. The cell suspension was leached through 74 μm filter and centrifuged at 400 r/min for 5 min. Then the cell pellet was re-suspended, followed by natural sedimentation to collect purified gland epithelial cells. The isolated cells were cytokeratin-positive as detected by immunocytochemical staining, and the positive rate could reach 95%. [Conclusion] The yak endometrial gland epithelial cells can be isolated and purified by both the explant culture method and digestion culture method.

  • Development and Preliminary Application of Double Antibody Sandwich ELISA for Detection of Swine Vesicular Disease Virus

    [Objective] The aim of this study was to develop an indirect sandwich ELISA method for detection of swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV). [Method] High titer serum against SVDV was prepared respectively by inoculated rabbits and guinea pigs with purified virus. To develop an indirect sandwich ELISA, the optimum concentrations of capture antibody, detection antibody, enzyme conjugate and standard antigen were determined using block titration, and positive threshold value was also determined. The specificity, sensitivity and repeatability of the developed ELISA were evaluated using cross-reaction test, comparison test and intra-assay repeated test. In addition, standard samples and clinical samples were detected by this method. [Result] The best working conditions of the developed ELISA are as follows: capture antibody, 1∶400; detection antibody, 1∶200; enzyme conjugate, 1∶8 000; and standard antigen, 1∶4. The positive threshold value was found to be 0.20. For the detection by the developed ELISA, no cross-reaction with foot and mouth disease was observed. The developed ELISA had close sensitivity with ELISA recommended by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) but had sensitivity 2-4 times higher than that of reverse indirect hemagglutination test. In addition, the developed method also had good reproducibility, and the detection results of standard samples were in line with their own background. All the 36 clinical samples were negative in the developed ELISA. [Conclusion] The developed indirect sandwich ELISA can be used for diagnosis of swine vesicular disease.

    [Objective] To reveal structure and function of alpine meadow ecosystem and thus to provide a scientific basis for development, utilization and scientific management of alpine meadow pasture as well as sustainable development of grassland agriculture. [Method] Characteristics of Kobresia humilis communities with primary vegetation (community I) and degraded vegetation (community II) were analyzed. [Result] Species richness, biodiversity index and biomass of the community I were respectively 42, 3.531 and 3 553.1 g/m2, which were respectively higher than those of the community II (37, 2.270 and 3 391.1 g/m2). Correlation analysis shows that community biomass was correlated positively with the richness index (P < 0.01), and biodiversity index was correlated positively with the aboveground biomass and richness index (P < 0.01). [Conclusion] The Kobresia humilis community I has reasonable structure and large coverage of ground vegetation, which play an important role in maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem function.

  • Screening and Genetic Characteristics of Breeding Materials of Silage Corn

    [Objective] To analyze the effects of major agronomic traits on yield in maize inbred lines. [Method] Incomplete diallel cross between three single-cross hybrids and 19 parent materials of corn silage were performed, and the agronomic traits of the obtained 57 cross combinations were identified. [Result] The regression equations between biomass and four important indicators (grain yield, rows per ear, plant height and straw yield) affecting biomass of corn silage were established. The broad heritability of straw yield, plant height, rows per ear and ear length was higher than 50%. Genetic effects had a greater impact, while environmental factors had a smaller impact. Thus, it had great potential to improve these traits by genetic breeding. In addition, the broad heritability of biomass and grain yield was lower than 50%. [Conclusion] Biomass and grain yield have greater interaction effects on environment, and the environmental impact should be considered for selection.
