    Han Guangwei;Li Zhaocai;Gong Xiaowei;Chen Qiwei;Cao Xiaoan;Zheng Fuying;Zhang Xiaoying;Zhou Jizhang;

    The gene CPA and ETX encoding α and ε toxins were amplified from the standard strain C60-2 of type D Clostridium perfingens by PCR,and then they were inserted into pet-Duet-1 vecto,respectively for the construction of co-expression plasmid p ETDuet-1-CPA-ETX. The co-expression plasmid was transformed into BL21( DE3) competent cells. α and ε toxins proteins were induced by IPTG before analysis by SDS-PAGE. As a result,both of α and ε toxins were detected at 43 and 34 KU by western-blot. Mice immunized with the co-expressed α and ε toxins proteins produced high titers of neutralizing antibodies in the serum,which protected the mice against the attack of type D C. perfringens culture filtrate. In addition,mice immunized with the produced co-expressed α and ε toxins proteins showed significantly higher surviving rate than with ε toxins protein alone when infected with culture filtrate of type D C. perfringens. These results indicated that co-expression of α and ε toxins proteins could be used as a new method to prepare vaccines against the pathogens of multiple serotypes.

  • Mechanisms of Up-regulation of 17β-Estrodiol on β-Defensin-2 ( SBD-2) Expression in Epithelial Cells of Ovine Oviduct

    Bao Tuya;Cao Guifang;Tu Yong;Du Chenguang;

    [Objective]To investigate the mechanisms involved in the Up-regulatory effects of 17β-estrodiol on β-defensin-2( SBD-2) in epithelial cells of ovine oviduct. [Methods]Epithelial cells of ovine oviduct were isolated and cultured; and then the cultured cells at secondary generation were divided into 17β-estradiol( E2,10- 8mol / L) group,estrogen nuclear receptor antagonist ICI182780( 10- 7mol / L) group,PKA antagonist KT-5720( 1 μmol / L) group,PKC antagonist H-7( 50 μmol / L) group,nuclear factor kappa B antagonist PDTC( 50 μmol / L) group and the blank control group( Control). Firstly,different antagonists were added into corresponding antagonist groups in order to interfere the epithelial cells of ovine oviduct for 1 h. Then,17β-estradiol( 10- 8mol / L) was added into each antagonist group and E2 group for cultivation for 6 h. Finally,real-time fluorescent quantitative RT-PCR was used to detect the changes of SBD-2 mRNA expression.[Results]10- 8mol / L 17β-estrodiol had significantly Up-regulatory effects on the expression of SBD-2 mRNA( P < 0. 05). Estrogen nuclear receptor antagonist ICI182780,NF-κΒ antagonist PDTC and PKC antagonist H-7 could all block the Up-regulatory effects on SBD-2. But PKA antagonist KT-5720 showed no significant effects on the Up-regulation of SBD-2 mRNA expression induced by 17β-estrodiol. [Conclusions] SBD-2 mRNA expression induced by 17β-estrodiol in epithelial cells of ovine oviduct was mediated by estrogen nuclear receptor ICI182780,NF-κB and PKC pathways. However,PKA pathway might not participate in the Up-regulation of SBD-2 mRNA expression.

    Fan Jiangtao;Feng Xue;Qiu Yongsong;Huang Zirong;Chen Guobao;

    Purpleback flying squid( Sthenoeuthis oualaniensis) is an important marine economic species,studying its biological characteristics is very important for the resource assessment and management. This paper summed up domestic and international information of squid biology,and showed some details on this subject.According to the squid life history : egg,larvae,juveniles and adult fish stage,it summarized from the age of growth,population structure,migration,spawning,vertical distribution,habitat,and status of resources. There is little research on the squid larvae and the signs of juveniles period ended are not clear. Adult fish is divided into four main populations and two minor populations,the large group,medium-sized group,small group and mini-group,while medium-sized groups can be divided into medium uniaxial group and medium-sized biaxial according to the characteristics of the inner shell. The distribution of purpleback flying squid has the " island correlation",it usually ascend to the surface at night and drop to the deep-water during the daytime. Purpleback flying squid plays an important role in the ecosystem. It is the main food of many fish,and marine mammals; also it is the predators of crustaceans and small fish. It has the self-feed characteristics. Purpleback flying squid widely distributes in the 38°N to 40°S tropical and subtropical waters,especially in the South China Sea,the catchability is( 130- 200) × 104 tons in one year.

  • Comparative Pharmacokinetics of Florfenicol in Japanese Eels at Different Temperature

    Lin Mao;Chen Zhengqiang;Ji Rongxing;Yang Xianle;Wang Jian;

    The present study provides a comparative understanding of florfenicol deposition kinetics following oral administration at a single dose of 30 mg / kg body weight to Japanese eel( Anguilla japonica) at the temperature of 20℃,24℃ and 28℃,respectively. Approximate 0. 3 m L of blood sample from each eel in these three groups was collected in a row at the time 0. 5,1,2,4,8,12,24 and 36 h after medicated-feed gavage. The concentrations of florfenicol in eel plasma were detected by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography( RP- HPLC). The plasma concentration-time data of each eel were analyzed by non-compartmental methods based on statistical moment theory using DAS software. Pharmacokinetics parameters of different groups were tested by one-way analysis of variance using SPSS software. It was found that most of parameters were different significantly among groups( P < 0. 05). In the three groups at 20℃,24℃ and 28℃,pharmacokinetics parameters of peak plasma concentration( Cmax) were( 7. 839 ± 1. 125),( 13. 010 ± 2. 334) and( 18. 267 ± 3. 717) μg/m L,and the time to reach the Cmax( Tmax) were( 6. 500 ± 2. 070),( 4. 500 ± 1. 414) and( 3. 429 ± 0. 926) h,respectively. These suggested that eels at higher temperature absorbed more drug and more quickly. The volumes of distribution( Vz/ F) were( 3. 964 ± 0. 594),( 2. 466 ± 0. 672) and( 1. 841 ± 0. 485) L / kg,respectively.The difference deduced that more florfenicol was bound to tissue in eels at lower temperature. The mean residence time( MRT0- ∞) and the half-life of drug( t1 /2z)in the three respective groups were( 31. 503 ± 7. 117),( 22. 881 ± 4. 940) and( 22. 134 ± 6. 204) h,and( 21. 243 ± 5. 166),( 14. 994 ± 4. 293) and( 14.656 ± 5. 061) h. These parameters showed that the elimination rate of florfenicol in eels at 24℃ or 28℃ was more quickly than that at 20℃. The areas under the concentration- time curve( AUC0- ∞) were( 235. 580 ± 62. 013),( 271. 983 ± 75. 023) and( 353. 192 ± 92. 491) μg·h/m L,respectively. It indicated that the relative bioavailability of florfenicol was higher significantly in eels at higher temperature.

    Yimin Sidik;Li Xuesen;Munire Muhammad;Jianati;Mikesh;Jiang Runxiao;

    Four seeding methods,including broadcast sowing,feeding seeds to sheep,putting seed bag on sheep and cattle,and mix-seeding were combined with hoof tillage method to improve the degraded mountain grassland where large gradient limited the use of machine. The results showed that the most suitable grassland type for hoof tillage was mountain meadow steppe. The optimum reseeding period was early spring,followed by late autumn; and Sainfoin( Onobrychis sativa) was the most suitable herbage species. The optimum reseeding method was artificial broadcasting in the slope with the gradient < 20°,followed by putting seed bag on sheep and cattle. After improvement of hoof tillage,the vegetation coverage increased by 35%,the proportion of high quality herbage increased by 25%,and the fresh yield increased by three to four times.
