Citrinin was mixed in the diet (100, 250, 500 parts/10(6)) and fed to 1-day-old male White Pekin ducklings (Trial I), or it was dissolved in dimethyl-sulphoxide-70% ethanol (3:1, v/v) and administered by crop gavage to 14-day-old male White Pekin ducklings (Trial II) or 7-day-old male turkey poults (Trial III). Ducklings given 250 or 500 parts/10(6) citrinin diet for 15 days had clinical signs of citrinin toxicity. Body weight gain was significantly decreased by the 500 parts/10(6) diet (P < 0.05). Ducklings fed 250 and 500 parts/10(6) developed nephropathy that was more severe in the 500 parts/10(6) group. The nephropathy was characterised by degeneration, necrosis, mineralisation and regeneration of tubular epithelial cells of both the cortical and medullary regions. Interstitial fibrosis was found in the medullary regions of the 500 parts/10(6) group only and focally was accompanied by interstitial nephritis. Seven daily doses of citrinin equal to a half or three-quarters of the single-dose LD(50) produced no additive toxic effects in either ducklings or turkeys, but body weight gain was significantly decreased in duckling given three-quarters of the single-dose LD(50).

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Epigenetic Memory

Epigenetic memory refers to the heritable genetic changes that are not explained by the DNA sequence. Find the latest research on epigenetic memory here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Femoral Neoplasms

Femoral Neoplasms are bone tumors that arise in the femur. Discover the latest research on femoral neoplasms here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
