Retinol binding protein 4 (RBP4) is a transporter of vitamin A that is secreted mainly by hepatocytes and adipocytes. It affects diverse pathophysiological processes, such as obesity, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular diseases. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to play indispensable roles in regulating various developmental processes via the post-transcriptional repression of target genes in mammals. However, the functional link between RBP4 and changes in miRNA expression in porcine gr...

Granulosa cells (GCs) are regulated by various factors during ovarian development. However, there are few reports on the role of follicular fluid exosomes in ovarian GCs. In this study, porcine ovarian GCs were used to explore the effects of follicular fluid exosomes on GCs. GCs were treated with in vitro, and the changes in cell proliferation, steroid synthesis, and associated signal pathways were detected. The results showed that exosomes increased cell viability and altered the gene expressio...

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is an endotoxin, which may cause immune response and inflammation of bovine mammary glands. Mastitis impairs animal health and results in economic loss. Curcumin (CUR) is a naturally occurring diketone compound, which has attracted widespread attention as a potential anti-inflammatory antioxidant. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether CUR can reduce the damage of bovine mammary epithelial cells (MAC-T) induced by LPS and its underlying molecular mechanism. ...

Zearalenone (ZEA) is a mycotoxin of the Fusarium genus that can cause endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and Apoptosis in bovine mammary epithelial cells (MAC-T). Polydatin (PD), a glycoside purified from Polygonum cuspidatum, has antioxidant properties. This study aimed to explore whether PD can alleviate ZEA-induced damage on bovine mammary epithelial cells (MAC-T). We found that incasing the concentration of ZEA (0, 7.5, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 240 μM) gradually decreased the cell viability. ...

Abstract More and more studies have showed that tricothecene mycotoxin, deoxynivalenol (DON) caused cytotoxicity in mammary alveolar cells-large T antigen cells (MAC-T). Therefore, research on reducing the cytotoxicity of DON has gradually attracted attention. In this study, we aim to explore the potential of pterostilbene (PTE) to protect MAC-T cells from DON-induced oxidative stress and inflammatory response. MAC-T cells were treated with 0.25 μg/mL DON or 2.0504 μg/mL PTE or 0.25 μg/mL DON an...

Grape pomace (GP) is an abundant by-product from wine production and is rich in phenolic compounds, unsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibre and beneficial bacteria. In this study, weaned piglets were fed a basic diet supplemented with 5% GP for 4 weeks. Compared with those in the control (CON) group, it was found that the proportion of Lactobacillus delbrueckii, Olsenella umbonata and Selenomonas bovis in the caecum and the villus height and villus height/crypt depth ratio (VCR) of the jejunum we...

Abstract Mounting evidence has shown that zearalenone (ZEA) can have toxic effects on the intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) of mammals and humans, but the mechanism of ZEA-induced toxicity on IECs is unclear. The aim of this study was to reveal the mechanism of action of ZEA on intestinal epithelial cells via RNA-seq technology. We measured the effects of ZEA on the viability and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity of the pig intestinal epithelial cell line J2 (IPEC-J2). The results showed ZEA...

ABSTRACT Zearalenone (ZEA) is a common mycotoxin produced by fungi within the genus Fusarium. However, few studies have examined the direct effects of the toxin on the mammary glands. In the present study, the effects of ZEA treatment on bovine mammary epithelial cells (MAC-T) from dairy cows were investigated. The cells were treated with different concentrations of ZEA to evaluate the effect of the toxin on cell viability, intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) concentrations, mitochondria...

Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a toxic secondary metabolite produced by Fusarium graminearum. It is one of the most common feed contaminants that poses a serious threat to the health and performance of dairy cows. This study investigated the in vitro cytotoxicity of DON on bovine mammary epithelial cells (MAC-T). DON at different concentrations (0.25, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, 1 or 2 μg/ml) inhibited the growth of MAC-T cells after 24 hr of exposure (p < .001). DON at 0.25 μg/ml increased lactate dehydrogenase (L...
