The origin of exotic pet sugar gliders (Petaurus breviceps) kept in the United States of America.
The demand for exotic non-domesticated animals kept as pets in the United States of America (USA) is growing the exportation charges of these species from their native ranges. Often, unlawful harvesting of these species is used to spice up captive-bred numbers and meet this demand. One such species, the sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps), endemic to Australia and New… Continue reading
Physiological and behavioral responses of an arboreal mammal to smoke and charcoal-ash substrate.
The latest statement that torpor performs a key function in post-fire survival has been primarily attributed to the diminished meals assets after fires. However, some of these changes could be facilitated or amplified by environmental adjustments related to fires, such because the presence of a charcoal-ash substrate. In a earlier experiment on a small terrestrial… Continue reading
THE USE OF THE LIGASURE™ DEVICE FOR SCROTAL ABLATION IN MARSUPIALS.
Five sugar gliders ( Petaurus breviceps ), ranging in age from Three mo to three.5 yr of age, and one opossum ( Didelphis virginianus ), age 4.5 mo, offered for elective orchiectomy and scrotal ablation. The LigaSure™ machine was safely used for orchiectomy and scrotal ablation in each species. Surgical time with the LigaSure was roughly Four sec.… Continue reading
Tolerance to high temperature by arboreal mammals using nest boxes in southern Australia
Nest boxes are used to handle populations of tree-cavity dependent birds and mammals. Concerns have been raised that due to their poor insulative properties nest boxes might trigger warmth stress and infrequently demise throughout summers of maximum most temperatures. Our research investigated whether or not this nest field warmth stress speculation applies to two small… Continue reading
Dietary Carbohydrates: Friend or Foe?
Fats, proteins and carbohydrates are the main sources of energy in human nutrition. The relationship between these three has been the subject of much debate in nutritional science over the years. Carbohydrates were important to our ancestors because many carbohydrate-rich foods were easy to store without refrigeration compared to protein-rich or high-fat foods such as… Continue reading
The UPR sensor IRE1α and the adenovirus E3-19K glycoprotein sustain persistent and lytic infections
Persistent viruses cause chronic disease, and threaten the lives of immunosuppressed individuals. Here, we elucidate a mechanism supporting the persistence of human adenovirus (AdV), a virus that can kill immunosuppressed patients. Cell biological analyses, genetics and chemical interference demonstrate that one of five AdV membrane proteins, the E3-19K glycoprotein specifically triggers the unfolded protein response… Continue reading
