  • Increased immunoreactive 11‐ketotestosterone concentrations in sheep feces after ACTH challenge

    11‐Oxoetiocholanolone and related substances are important metabolites of cortisol and are excreted via feces in ruminants. To investigate whether 11‐ketotestosterone (11‐KT) or its immunoreactive metabolites are formed and excreted in ruminant feces, an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) was developed and validated. The antibody was raised in rabbits against 11‐KT‐3‐CMO:BSA with biotinylated 11‐KT as a ...

  • Ruminal metabolism and transport of tall fescue ergot alkaloids

    Circumstantial evidence suggests ergovaline is the putative toxin causing fescue toxicosis. However, several investigators suggest lysergic acid may be involved as well. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to (i) determine the metabolic fate of ergot alkaloids in ruminants, (ii) investigate gastric transport, and (iii) validate these findings in vivo. Ruminal metabolism of the alkaloids was ...
