  1. Avian B cell precursors: surface immunoglobulin expression is an early, possibly bursa-independent event.

    European Journal of Immunology 16(2):129 (1986) PMID 3485527

    We have previously shown (J.R.L. Pink et al., Eur. J. Immunol. 1985. 15:617) that all, or almost all B cell progenitors in the bursae of 4-day-old chicks express cell surface IgM. In this report, we have analyzed the distribution of cell surface (s)IgM-1 allotypes within individual follicles of (M-1...
  2. Avian leukosis virus infection: analysis of viremia and DNA integration in susceptible and resistant chicken lines.

    Journal of Virology 51(1):123 (1984) PMID 6328031 PMCID 254409

    We examined plasma and cellular DNA obtained from avian leukosis virus-infected chickens for the presence of viremia and integrated viral sequences to determine whether the extent of virus infection is comparable in individuals of both lines. A less than twofold difference in the frequency of viremi...
  3. Glucocorticoid production in the chicken bursa and thymus.

    International Immunology 13(6):769 (2001) PMID 11369704

    We investigated the functional presence of steroidogenic enzymes in primary lymphoid organs of chickens, which represent one of the best studied non-mammalian species. To this end, we attempted to demonstrate enzyme activities of the whole set of steroidogenic enzymes for the synthesis of GC in the...
  4. The bursa of Hieronymus Fabrici d'Acquapendente: past and present of an anatomical structure.

    American Journal of Nephrology 17(3-4):248 (1997) PMID 9189242

  5. Thymo-bursal and adrenal reactions in chickens subjected to thiourea treatment.

    Archiv fuer Experimentelle Veterinaermedizin 42(5):655 (1988) PMID 3145730

  6. Effects of cimetidine on broiler fattening and on stress-induced gizzard erosion in chicken.

    Acta Veterinaria Hungarica 47(2):233 (1999) PMID 10344083

    The work describes the effects of cimetidine on stress-induced gizzard erosions (Experiment A) and the influence of the long-term application (42 days) of the same drug on weight gain and feed consumption during broiler fattening (Experiment B). For Experiment A, 60 male, three-day-old chicks were d...
  7. A contribution to the study of the histogenesis of the bursal lymphoid follicles in Gallus domesticus.

    Anatomischer Anzeiger 162(2):83 (1986) PMID 3789415

    Numerous investigators have shown that the development of the bursal lymphoid follicle in chicken begins with the formation of epithelial gemmations called epithelial buds. The mesenchymal stem cells migrate into these epithelial buds and give rise to the lymphoid cells of the follicle medulla. Howe...
  8. Nutritional stress as a cause of thymic atrophy in broiler chickens.

    Avian Diseases 29(1):103 (1985) PMID 3985868

    A study was conducted to examine the effect of nutritional stress on the development of the thymus, bursa, and pancreas of 7-to-14-day-old commercial meat-type chickens. One group of 7-day-old chickens was given access to food for only 30 minutes daily for 7 days. The birds were necropsied, and the...
  9. Ultrastructure of granulopoiesis in tunica propria of the bursa of Fabricius.

    Developmental & Comparative Immunology 8(1):219 (1984) PMID 6724090

  10. Eimeria acervulina: influence of corticosterone-induced immunosuppression on oocyst shedding and production characteristics in broilers, and...

    Veterinary Parasitology 70(1-3):47 (1997) PMID 9195709

    An experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of immune responsiveness on excretion of oocysts after E. acervulina infection and subsequent effects on production characteristics of broilers (Gallus domesticus). These effects were determined in broilers repeatedly infected with 2.85 x 10(3)...
