Care on poultry health cooperates to these developments, however, respiratory agents that affect weight and carcass quality, continue to threaten poultry production. Airsacculitis is considered the main cause of total and/or partial condemnation of broilers carcasses, being Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) the most important agent of it. This study aimed to detect MG by “Polymerase Chain Reaction” (PCR) and to correlate its positivity with airsacculitis, weight losses
and condemnated broilers by Federal Sanitary Inspection. A total of 40 flocks of slaughter broilers under Federal Inspection in Rio Grande do LY2606368 Cell Cycle inhibitor Sul, Brazil, were randomly selected. In each flock three broilers, regardless of sex, were randomly chosen for necropsy where tracheas were collected and polled in one sample for analysis. For PCR, DNA was extracted by the method of phenol-chloroform and amplified with pairs of specific primers for MG. From the 40 flocks PCR analyzed, 20% (8/40) were positive for MG. MG detection was found to be correlected with airsacculitis increase and weight decrease by multiple logistic
regression equation (p<0,05), LogitPi= 7.9409 + (0,5601 x X1) – (3.3080 x X2). Airsacculitis rate increase also correleted with decrease in body weight by simple linear regression equation (p<0.05), Y= 2.1050 – 0.6397X. In conclusion, MG positivity Linsitinib in vivo is related to airsacculitis which causes weight loss in broilers. In addition, the PCR was an effective technique for the detection of MG in flocks of broilers, but was not affected by the kind of biological specimens collected, as tracheal scraping or swab.”
“A combination of transmission electron microscopy techniques and spatially resolved microanalysis is used to investigate the nanostructure, constituting phases, and chemical elemental distribution in CrAlYN multilayered coatings. The location of the metallic elements and their chemical state are needed to understand their functional properties. Samples were prepared with variable Al (4-12 at%) and Y (2-5 at%) contents by direct current reactive magnetron sputtering on silicon substrates using metallic targets and Ar/N-2 mixtures under different deposition parameters (power applied to the target and rotation speed of the sample holder). The changes produced in the nanostructure and chemical distribution were investigated.
