  • Assessment of swine-specific bacteriophages of Bacteroides fragilis in swine farms with different antibiotic practices

    We assessed the occurrence and specificity of bacteriophages of Bacteroides fragilis in swine farms for their potential application in microbial source tracking. A local B. fragilis host strain, SP25 (DSM29413), was isolated from a pooled swine feces sample taken from a non-antibiotic farm. This strain was highly specific to swine fecal materials because it did not detect ...

  • Screening for antibiotic residues in swine and poultry tissues using the STAR test

    During a 12–month period, 138 tissue samples (muscle, liver, kidney) were screened for antibiotic residues (ARs), using the five–plate STAR test. Samples positive to one or more antibiotics were detected in 33.9% of the chicken samples and in 26% of the pig samples. All the chicken liver samples, 32.2% of the chicken muscle and 14% of the swine liver samples were positive to sulphonamides and ...

  • Occurrence of tylosin in swine wastewater in Mexico

    This study determined a tylosin concentration in swine wastewater located in a Mexican pig farm, during different stages of the pigs' growth. The detection of antibiotics in swine wastewater is complex due to its high concentration of solids. Analytical method was developed for detection of tylosin in swine wastewater and swine slurry. Average recoveries of tylosin in the liquid and solid ...

  • Korean swine farm trials

    The hog farm lagoon system located in South Korea was completed crusted over prior to innoculation with AquaClean. The covering was approximately one inch thick. AquaClean was applied to the system with standard usage rate. Within 3 days, the solid covering was broken apart and after 4 days was dissolved into slurry form. After 5 days, most floating solids had disappeared, and after only 45 ...

  • Methane and carbon dioxide emission from two pig finishing barns

    Received for publication July 22, 2007. Agricultural activities are an important source of greenhouse gases. However, comprehensive, long-term, and high-quality measurement data of these gases are lacking. This article presents a field study of CH4 and CO2 emission from two 1100-head mechanically ventilated pig (Sus scrofa) finishing barns (B1 and B2) with shallow manure flushing systems and ...

  • Mitogen-activated protein kinase hog1 mediates adaptation to g1 checkpoint arrest during arsenite and hyperosmotic stress

    Cells slow down cell cycle progression in order to adapt to unfavorable stress conditions. Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) responds to osmotic stress by triggering G1 and G2 checkpoint delays that are dependent on the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) Hog1. The high-osmolarity glycerol (HOG) pathway is also activated by arsenite, and the ...
