Green- or brown-striped trematode sporocyst broodsacs typical of Leucochloridium
infecting the ocular tentacles of a land snail, Succinea lauta, were collected in Abashiri,
Hokkaido in northern Japan (N43° 59´, E144° 14´) in June of 2000 and 2001. The
metacercariae isolated from the sporocyst broodsac were morphologically identified as
Leucochloridium spp. (Leucoclhoridiidae Poche). This report is the first to describe
evidential specimens of the sporocyst broodsac of the genus Leucochloridium Carus, 1835,
infecting the intermediate host in Japan, suggesting that Leucochloridium spp. completes Their life cycle in Hokkaido, Japan.

MRL/MpJ (MRL) is a mouse model for autoimmune disease and develops ovarian cysts with
age. The ovarian cysts originate from the rete ovarii, which is considered to be the remnant
of fetal mesonephric tubules. In a previous study, we analyzed the genetic background of
ovarian cysts by using backcross progenies between MRL and C57BL/6N (B6) mice. By
interval mapping, suggestive linkages were detected on several chromosomes (Chrs), and a
significant linkage on Chr 14 was designated as MRL Rete Ovarian Cyst (mroc).
In the present study, which evaluated 113 F2 intercross progenies, a significant linkage
appeared on Chr 6 at the marker position D6Mit188 (likelihood ratio statistic...

The objective of this experiment was to compare the efficiencies of sodium selenite (SS) and selenized yeast (SY) supplemented at different doses (0.05 and 0.30 mg Se/kg feed) with respect to plasma glutathione peroxidase (Gpx) activity, extent of oxidative lipid injury, and thyroid hormone activation in broilers during the first four weeks of growth. Results indicate a significant increase in plasma Gpx activity and reduction in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in all supplemented groups at 4 weeks of age compared to 2-week-old chicks. Plasma thyronine activation was highest in SY supplemented broilers. It can be concluded that in the...
