Effect of cassava peel processing on the performance, nutrient utilization and physiopathology of the African giant rat (Cricetomys gambianus Waterhouse)

, : Effect of cassava peel processing on the performance, nutrient utilization and physiopathology of the African giant rat (Cricetomys gambianus Waterhouse). Tropical Agriculture, 632: 125-128

Four diets were prepared to contain 31.12% of either maize (diet 1) or processed cassava peel. The peel was sun-dried, oven-dried or fermented, constituting diets 2-4, respectively. They were fed to weanling giant rats in a 42-day trial. Hydrocyanic acid (HCN) contents of the rations were 0, 130.2, 595.2 and 42.16 mg/kg, respectively. Performance was best on diet 1, and poorest on diet 3. Metabolizable energy and N retention were poorer in giant rats fed on the cassava peel rations.

Ovulation in Caenorhabditis elegans requires inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate (IP< sub>3</ sub>) signaling activated by the epidermal growth factor (EGF)-receptor homolog LET-23. We generated a deletion mutant of a type I 5-phosphatase, ipp...

In this paper we characterize hPARM-1, the human ortholog of rat PARM-1 (prostatic androgen-repressed message-1) and demonstrate its role in prostate cancer. Immunofluorescence microscopy and ultrastructural analysis revealed the localization of...
