Abstract
This experiment was conducted to examine the effect of dietary copper supplementation on ghrelin mRNA expression level in the fundic gland of growing pigs. A total of 45 crossbred pigs were randomly assigned to three groups of 15 pigs, five replicates of three animals comprised each group. Pigs were allocated to diets that contained 5 mg/kg copper (as the control group), 125 mg/kg copper sulfate, or 125 mg/kg copper methionine. At the end of the experiment, five pigs were selected at random from each group, slaughtered, and collected the fundic gland for determination of ghrelin mRNA expression level. The results showed that average daily gain, average daily feed intake, absolute weight, serum growth hormone (GH) concentration, and ghrelin mRNA level were higher in pigs fed the diets with 125 mg/kg copper methionine and 125 mg/kg copper sulfate (P < 0.05), than in pigs fed a diet with 5 mg/kg copper. These data suggest that high dietary copper (125 mg/kg) appears to increase feed intake and promote weight gain by enhancing the secretion of GH and ghrelin mRNA level in growing pigs.

Abstract A progressive decrease in body weight and retarded linear growth observed in mosaic male mice with the mutation linked to X-chromosome (Atp7a mo鈭抦s ) raised the question whether hypophysiotropic growth axis activity may be affected in these animals. A pathologically developed median eminence ultrastructure with very low somatostatin accumulation as well as an intensive phagocytosis of growth hormone cells observed in the anterior pituitary gland raised the question whether hypothalamic ...

Recent identification of novel appetite-regulating hormones has revealed the complex interactions of these humoral factors in the regulation of feeding behavior in mammals. One of these hormones, ghrelin, a natural ligand of the orphan receptor GHS-R, purified from stomach, is able to stimulate growth hormone release from pituitary cells. Ghrelin is a 28 amino acid peptide containing an n -octanoylated serine 3 residue that is essential for its activity. Ghrelin stimulates appetite by acting on ...

The transport and cellular metabolism of Cu depends on a series of membrane proteins and smaller soluble peptides that comprise a functionally integrated system for maintaining cellular Cu homeostasis. Inward transport across the plasma membrane appears to be a function of integral membrane proteins that form the channels that select Cu ions for passage. Two membrane-bound Cu-transporting ATPase enzymes, ATP7A and ATP7B, the products of the Menkes and Wilson disease genes, respectively, catalyze...

Abstract Effluent and sludge samples from a number of dairy and piggery units in the North Island of New Zealand were collected and analysed for free ionic-copper (Cu 2+ ) and organically-complexed Cu. The bioavailability of sludge鈥揅u was examined using microbial respiration and plant growth experiments. Microbial respiration was measured at various levels of Cu (0鈥1000 mg kg 鈭1 ), added as copper sulfate (CuSO 4 ) and sludge鈥揅u, using a Gilson differential respirometer. A glass house experiment...

In the past few years, exciting advances have been made toward understanding how copper is transported into and distributed to cupro-proteins within cells. Recent work has identified high-affinity copper transporters at the plasma membrane in a number of organisms. The elucidation of the three-dimensional structure of copper chaperones and target cupro-proteins has shown that highly specific interactions between homologous domains foster copper transfer between conserved copper ligands, and faci...

The synergistic relationship between GH-releasing secretagogue (GHS) and GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) with respect to GH secretion is well known. In the present study, we report a similar relationship between GHRH and ghrelin, a recently identified endogenous ligand for the GHS receptor. In normal male adults, various doses of ghrelin were intravenously administered alone or together with 1.0 渭g/kg GHRH. At small doses of 0.08 and 0.2 渭g/kg ghrelin, combined administration of the two peptides sig...

Abstract Ghrelin is a novel growth hormone (GH) releaser acylated peptide that has recently been purified fromstomach, and which potently binds to the GH secretagogue receptor. Ghrelin releases GH in vitro andin vivo in animal models, however its actions, potency and specificity in humans are unknown. In thepresent study, 12 healthy subjects were studied: 6 underwent four tests with ghrelin administered i.v.at the dose of 0 (placebo), 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/kg which corresponds to 0, 18, 37 and 75 m...

Growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-I) are pleiotropic hormones with important roles in lifespan. They promote growth, anabolic actions, and body maintenance, and in conditions of energy deprivation, favor catabolic feedback mechanisms switching from carbohydrate oxidation to lipolysis, with the aim to preserve protein storages and survival. IGF-I/insulin signaling was also the first one identified in the regulation of lifespan in relation to the nutrient-sensing. Indeed, n...

High copper feed has been widely used as an inexpensive and highly effective feed additive to promote growth performance of pigs. However, long-term feeding of high copper feed may reduce the growth-promoting effects of copper, time-dependent accumulation of copper in animal tissues and organs, and copper toxicity thereby reducing the growth performance of pigs. Due to the widespread effects of high copper supplementation in animals' diets, the benefits and drawbacks of high copper feeding in pi...

Abstract Many studies have investigated the potential negative effects of silver on aquatic organisms, but most focused on short-term exposure in few species. Moreover, there are many uncertainties about differences in potential toxicity mechanisms and adverse effects of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and ionic form of silver (AgNO 3 ). We investigated chronic effects of AgNPs and AgNO 3 on the juvenile common carp ( Cyprinus carpio ). AgNPs and AgNO 3 accumulated in the liver, gill and intestine,...
