  • Chicken Bursa Case Study

    Discussion Immune reaction to viral invasion is important to combat virus growth and to minimize any damage that can be imposed on the host cells [30]. In this study, the host immune response in the bursa of Fabricius, an organ mainly colonized by B lymphocytes, was assessed upon infection by the avian virus NDV genotype VII IBS002 and genotype VIII AF2240. The cell population in the chicken bursa was evaluated by flow cytometry and the results showed that in normal chickens, this organ was…

  • Alkylated Polycyclic Aromatic Cells: The Effects Of PAH?

    Alkylated polycyclic aromatic compounds (alkyl-PACs) are the major aromatic constituent of total PAH in crude oil and originated from incomplete combustion process. Whereas benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) is a well-known human carcinogen, dibenzothiophene (DBT) and retene (Ret) are not; however, all three compounds are important environmental pollutants. Their toxicity is not yet characterized. In this study, we used BaP (parent PAH), DBT and Ret (alkyl-PACs) to elucidate the mechanism of neurotoxicity…

  • Summary: The Nisin Bacteriocin

    The Nisin Bacteriocin Introduction Nisin is a bacteriosin peptide made up of 34 amino acid residues that contain uncommon amino acids such as lanthionine and didehydroalanine. It is a substance produced by both gram positive and gram negative bacteria to control the growth of other bacteria species to reduce competition for substrate and space. Nisin has received attention from researchers making it the most exploited bacteriosin (Shetty, Pometto and Levin, 2006). The attention from…
