Gestational Heat Stress Alters Postnatal Offspring Body Composition Indices and Metabolic Parameters in Pigs
The study objectives were to test the hypothesis that heat stress (HS) during gestational development alters postnatal growth, body composition, and biological response to HS conditions in pigs. To investigate this, 14 ...
Heat stress causes oxidative stress but not inflammatory signaling in porcine skeletal muscle
Heat stress is associated with death and other maladaptions including muscle dysfunction and impaired growth across species. Despite this common observation, the molecular effects leading to these pathologic changes remain ...
Heat stress causes dysfunctional autophagy in oxidative skeletal muscle
(The Physiological Society, 2017-06)
We have previously established that 24h of environmental hyperthermia causes oxidative stress and have implicated mitochondria as likely contributors to this process. Given this, we hypothesized that heat stress would lead ...
Effects of dairy products on intestinal integrity in heat-stressed pigs.
Heat stress compromises intestinal integrity which may partially explain its negative effects on animal health and productivity. Research suggests that challenged intestinal barrier function improves with dietary dairy ...
Acute heat stress activated inflammatory signaling in porcine oxidative skeletal muscle
Despite well-studied clinical manifestations, intracellular mechanisms of prolonged hyperthermic injury remain unclear, especially in skeletal muscle. Given muscle's large potential to impact systemic inflammation and ...
