Haematological correlates of burrowing in Ctenomys

Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. A, Comparative Physiology

Abstract

Haematological parameters related to O2 transport and regulation of acid-base equilibrium were determined for two species of Ctenomys. The oxygen capacity values of Ctenomys blood are similar to those of other fossorial mammals. Ctenomys blood has almost half the number of red blood cells of Rattus blood but the amount of Hb in each blood cell is 2-2.5 times higher. Blood pH is within typical mammalian values. Concentration of inorganic phosphate is higher in Ctenomys than in rats while bicarbonate and protein values are within typical mammalian range.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.
