Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining was performed on testis and various immune system organs. The adult body weight is 250–300g for females, and 450–520g for males. They had free access to AltrominR pellet diet except in starvation experiments and to tap water. Δ4 was reduced to T [7], repurified on a second celite column chromatography and measured as T. Specific radioimmunoassays, described in detail elsewhere [7, 24, 25], were used to determine the plasma concentrations of T, Δ4 and OHP in both species. BPA was administered to pregnant Crl:CD BR Sprague-Dawley rats by gavage at 0, 3.2, 32, or 320 mg/kg/day from gestation day (GD) 11 through postnatal day (PND) 20. The rats’ obesity was induced by a high-fat (HF) diet made up of 50% standard rat pellet, 20% milk powder, 6% corn starch, and 24% ghee and a cafeteria (CAF) diet such as chicken rolls, salty biscuits, cakes, and cheese snacks.

Following this recording period, the cannula is removed and animals are allowed to recover. of evoked potentials in vitro, using either extracellular or intracellular recording techniques. The average litter size of the Sprague Dawley rat is 10.5. Long-Evans rats are thought to come from crosses between Wistar females and a wild Norway rat (Pass and Freeth 1993). Dawley ® outbred rat model. Background and aims: Daily nutrient intake and growth of male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats fed compositionally different diets were monitored over 114 weeks to determine whether rats fed ad libitum (AL) or diet restricted (DR) followed normal growth parameters. injections of 80 mg/kg dissolved in saline in 24 h intervals. SD rats produce decreased immobility times in FST following administration of the KOR antagonist nor-binaltorphimine (norBNI) and the novel KOR antagonists 5′-guanidinonaltrindole and 5′-acetamidinoethylnaltrindole (Mague et al., 2003). including alloxan- induced diabetic Sprague- Dawley rats. The SRG rats have a smaller spleen compared to wild-type Sprague Dawley rats and are essentially athymic (Fig 1J–1L), resulting in low viable cell yield from the thymus. Staining Characteristics of Lonchocarpus cyanescens Leaf Extract on the Testis of Sprague-Dawley Rats - Volume 18 Issue 4 - Rosemary B. Bassey, Airat A. Bakare, Innocent A. Edagha, Abraham A.A. Osinubi, Ademola A. Oremosu Testosterone propionate was injected subcutaneously in sesame oil. A left thoracotomy was performed through the fourth intercostal space using a sterile technique. Mean, standard deviation, median interquartile range as … Abstract. Biphenyl hydroxylation was measured as described by Creaven et al. Sprague-Dawley rats maintained on diet containing 265 ppm cobalt for 98 days showed degenerative changes in the testes considered to be secondary to hypoxia (Mollenhauer et al., 1985). The rat is the most commonly used rodent species for toxicology studies. outbred stock obtained from various sources, Sprague Dawley (SD) rat lines obtained from two sources were evaluated for their growth characteristics. Autoradiograms were prepared according to the thaw—mount technique of Stumpf and Roth [10]. The last injection was given 24 h prior to sacrifice.

Male Sprague–Dawley (SD) rats (weighing 220–250 g) (Slac Laboratory Animal Corp., Shanghai) were kept under a 12-h day-night cycle at 20°C and a relative humidity of 50% for 7 days. The Sprague Dawley rat is an outbred multipurpose breed of albino rat used extensively in medical research. Immunohistochemical staining was performed on a Ventana Discovery XT automated immunostainer, using Ventana OmniMap anti-rabbit horseradish peroxidase (HRP) secondary antibody incubation followed by diaminobenzidine chromagen. Sprague–Dawley rats were used throughout this study. Staining Characteristics of Lonchocarpus cyanescens Leaf Extract on the Testis of Sprague-Dawley Rats - Volume 18 Issue 4 - Rosemary B. Bassey, Airat A. Bakare, Innocent A. Edagha, Abraham A.A. Osinubi, Ademola A. Oremosu These rats typically have increased tail to body length ratio compared with Wistar rats. Histologic sections of 3–5 µm thickness were collected from each paraffin block, and sections were stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E), periodic acid/Schiff-hematoxylin (PAS-H), or luxol fast blue/cresyl violet (LFB/CV). Animals from low, mid and high dose groups received leaf extract at 250, 500 and 1000 mg/kg/day, respectively. Among the key findings were decreases in sperm motility and degeneration of the seminiferous tubules of the testes in mid- and high-dose males and nephropathy/hyaline droplet formation in males at all dose levels. After a period of at least 40 days, the (adult) conditioned animals were decapitated under volatile agent anesthesia, and the brains were either frozen for the assays described in the later sections, or used for the preparation of hippocampal slices for electrophysiological recordings. In another 90-day study, dogs were orally dosed by gavage at levels from 0 to 200 μg kg−1 per day with technical bromethalin. We investigated the effects of chronic administration of MG on glucose tolerance and β-cell insulin secreting mechanism in 12-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats. Paralysis was the clinical sign most frequently observed. The organs and tissues selected for presentation in the Atlas are typical of the tissues examined histopathologically in a short-term (less than 3 months in-life duration) nonclinical toxicology study. Organ weights were monitored and histopathological evaluations were made of the pituitary, spleen, liver, kidneys, bone marrow, and reproductive organs. Incisions of 2–2.5 cm were made in the midline in the back of the sham operated animals, at the level of the kidneys, cutting through the pelt and muscular layer into the peritoneal cavity; no organs were removed. Methods: An automated haematology analyzer was used to determine haematological indices of whole blood from individual in 20 each of male and female inbred Sprague Dawley rats. However, during lactation the body weights of pups borne to high-dose parents were reduced compared to controls. The incubation procedure and the analysis of T metabolites was performed following the methods described by Kniewald, Massa and Martini[33]. The strain was created by R. W. Dawley in 1925, from a hooded male hybrid of unknown origin and an albino female (probably Wistar), and was crossed with the female’s progeny for 7 generations.The SPRAGUE DAWLEY® rat is an albino outbred rat with an elongated head and a … Sprague Dawley rats were used to examine the reproductive impacts of dietary exposure to TNB [34]. DOMINIQUE LISON, in Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals (Third Edition), 2007. ; Paxinos and Watson stereotaxic coordinates: AP: 3.2 mm, RL: 2.1 mm, H: 2.0 mm, mouth bar: 03.5 mm), as reported previously. By contrast, outbred populations are used when identical genotypesare unnecessary or a population with genetic variation is required, and these rats are usually referred to as stocks rather than … The data presented are the means ± the standard errors of at least three different experiments (usually 5–7). The rats … ; Boja et al., 1992; Rauhala et al., 1998), 10 min after blocking serotonin uptake sites by fluoxetine (10 mg/kg, i.v.). In order to The SRG rats have a smaller spleen compared to wild-type Sprague Dawley rats and are essentially athymic (Fig 1J–1L), resulting in low viable cell yield from the thymus. So as to obtain sufficient amouts of plasma, specimens were pooled, 4–35 according to age. Development of spontaneous mammary tumors over the life-span of the female Charles River (Sprague-Dawley) rat: the influence of ovariectomy, thyroidectomy, and adrenalectomy-ovariectomy. In order to examine the degree of variability of an outbred stock obtained from various sources, Sprague Dawley (SD) rat lines obtained from two sources were evaluated for their growth characteristics. Our PCOS rat model induced by prenatal administration of 3 mg testosterone from Embryonic Day (E) 16 … al., 2000). Sexual dimorphism in various tissues is presented in the text, and illustrated where possible. Chuang C. Chiueh, in Methods in Enzymology, 2010. Testes and epididymides were weighed and examined histopathologically. For 3-methylcholanthrene pretreatment the animals received 3 i.p. For phenobarbital pretreatment the animals received 3 i.p.

Background and aims: Daily nutrient intake and growth of male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats fed compositionally different diets were monitored over 114 weeks to determine whether rats fed ad libitum (AL) or diet restricted (DR) followed normal growth parameters. without or with GSNO (16.8 nmol, i.n.) The Sprague-Dawley rat is a hybrid albino strain with a long narrow head. Rats collected at subsequent PND intervals were euthanized by carbon dioxide inhalation. The Sprague Dawley rat is an outbred multipurpose breed of albino rat used extensively in medical research. injection of pentylenetetrazol (PTZ, 70–80 mg kg−1); some pups of each litter were used as controls. (12) using a protein concentration of 1 mg/ml and a biphenyl concentration of 1.25 mM. 0.5, 1 or 3 h afterwards, the animals were decapitated and the brain removed. [34], there were no adverse effects of TNB on mating or fertility, gestation length, sex ratio, or the number of offspring/litter. The state of the estrus cycle was determined and was found to have no influence on the parameters tested. The typical life span is 2.5–3.5 years. This breed of rat was first produced by the Sprague Dawley farms in Madison, Wisconsin (later to become the Sprague Dawley … RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS MG (60 mg/kg/day) or 0.9% saline was administered by continuous infusion with a minipump for 28 days. The wild-type Sprague Dawley rat thymus was comprised mostly of CD4/CD8 double positive cells whereas in the SRG rat, the viable cells recovered were CD4-/CD8- (Fig 1A–1C). In Atlas of Histology of the Juvenile Rat, 2016. All rats that underwent surgery were given Achromycin in the drinking water (125 mg/1.) The fixed tissues were trimmed, subjected to routine histologic processing through graded alcohols and a clearing agent (xylene), then infiltrated and embedded in paraffin. In this study inter assay variations were 6.5%, for T, 6.9%, for Δ4 and 8.4% for OHP. Sprague-Dawley rats of approximately 55 days of age were used. The typical life span is 2.5–3.5 years. Almost all laboratory and domestic pet rats belong to a single species, the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Hence, this study aimed to investigate the anti-obesity activity of Elateriospermum tapos (E. tapos) shell extract in obesity induced Sprague Dawley rats. All study procedures and animal handling techniques were performed in compliance with WIL Research’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and the Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. The Sprague-Dawley strain came from crosses between Wistar females and a "hybrid" male whose origins are unknown. Whole brain sections were used for (i) quantitative radioligand binding autoradiography, (ii) in situ hybridization, and (iii) [35S]GTPγS autoradiography, to assess the properties of hippocampal and neocortical muscarinic receptors. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. 2B). Its main advantage is its calmness and ease of handling. A novel rat model induced by ligation of the unilateral common carotid artery and contralateral pterygopalatine and external carotid arteries was investigated. Male rats were dosed for 14 days prior to mating, and then throughout the mating period for 35 days. Sprague-Dawley rats (male 250–350 g, Taconic Farms) are anesthetized with chloral hydrate (400 mg/kg, i.p.) Our control animals are injected with an equal volume of 0.9% NaCl with pH adjusted with hydrochloric acid to 2.2, to equal the pH of the ferric chloride solution. The aim of this study was to ascertain experimentally, through the model of altering the early mother-infant bond and the late social bond through isolation, the effect on the histologic characteristics of the liver in adult Sprague-Dawley rats subjected to intermittent chronic stress. Determinations were in all cases made in triplicate on progressive aliquots. In order to examine the degree of variability of an outbred stock obtained from various sources, Sprague Dawley (SD) rat lines obtained from two sources were evaluated for their growth characteristics. Decreases in sperm motility and/or increased abnormal sperm were noted in mice, but not in rats, exposed to 3 mg/m3 or more in 13-week inhalation studies with cobalt sulfate (National Toxicology Program, 1991). Sprague Dawley rats in health. Perhaps the most novel findings of the study related to reproductive performance, which, for copulation and fertility indices, were normal, notwithstanding the spermatogenic deficits referred to earlier. These SD rats were fasted but allowed free access to water for 12 h prior to each experiment. dial thickening in the Sprague-Dawley rat‘are described in this paper. Mean, standard deviation, median interquartile range … Reduced sperm motility and/or increased abnormal sperm were noted in mice, but not in rats, exposed to 3 mg/m 3 or higher in 13-week inhalation studies with cobalt sulfate ( NTP, 2011a ). By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. The autoradiographic exposure times ranged between 6 to 12 months. The rats are maintained as an outbred closed colony. including alloxan- induced diabetic Sprague- Dawley rats. We measured the frequency of occurrence of spontaneous synchronous bursts and the features (amplitude, duration, etc.) Long-Evans rats are thought to come from crosses between Wistar females and a wild Norway rat (Pass and Freeth 1993). No histopathological findings were observed in other tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four hundred eighty 5-week old Sprague- Dawley, CD, outbred albino rats, 240 males Eight days after intracerebral infusion of ferrous citrate (4.2 nmol, i.n.) Feeding Sprague-Dawley rats diets varying in protein, fiber and energy content did not improve 2-y Sprague-Dawley rat survival above 50% if AL access to food was allowed (Keenan et al. 1995a and 1995b). Reduced sperm motility and/or increased abnormal sperm were noted in mice, but not in rats, exposed to 3 mg/m 3 or higher in 13-week inhalation studies with cobalt sulfate ( NTP, 2011a ). Sprague Dawleys are unable to vomit due to the esophagus entering the stomach. The relationship of this change with other causes of endocardial thickening is discussed, and the significance of these alterations is assessed. A strain, in reference to rodents, is a group in which all members are, as nearly as possible, genetically identical. Tumor incidence in normal Sprague-Dawley female rats. Blood was obtained from a peripheral vein of 550 normal human subjects of various ages between 9.00 and 11.00 [6–10, 24]. Ten animals/sex/group received 0, 70, 400, or 800 mg TNB/kg diet, levels calculated by the authors to result in average doses of 0, 3, 23, and 51 mg/kg/day in males and 0, 4, 30, and 60 mg/kg/day in females (0, 8, 55, and 110 mg/kg/day during lactation). In addition, competition studies were conducted in order to establish specificity of the radioactivity that concentrates in nuclei of certain cells, by preinjecting 100 x excess of unlabelled hormone of the same or different kind as the subsequently injected labelled hormone. Pedigo and Vernon (1993) also reported that treating male mice with cobalt chloride (400 ppm in the diet during 10 weeks) increased pre-implantation losses in the dominant lethal assay. This study was conducted to investigate absorption characteristics of zinc glycine chelate (Zn–Gly) by evaluating tissues zinc status and the expression of zinc transporters in rats. Statistical analysis has been carried out using Student's t-test. Pathological studies were undertaken on 106 mammary tumours (89 benign, 17 malignant) appearing spontaneously in 95 normal female Sprague-Dawley rats which were killed at … Characteristics of Open Field Behavior of Wistar and Sprague-Dawley Rats Yuzo ASANO Safety Research Laboratory, Tanabe Seiyaku Co., Ltd., Kashima 3-16-89, Yodogawa-ku, Osaka 532, Japan (Received 31 January 1986/Accepted 2 May 1986) The open field test (OFT) was carried out on Wistar and Sprague-Dawley rats between the ages of 3 to 20 weeks. The tissues presented in this Atlas are based on a limited number of animals examined. Animals are killed at designated times – 60 min, 5 days, 15 days, and 30 days – after amygdala injection. Reproductive organ weights, blood testosterone levels and sperm counts were measured in mature age-matched male rats. Sprague–Dawley rats, born in the laboratory.were maintained under conditions of controlled temperature and lighting (12 h-12 h) with free access to food and water. Sprague Dawleys are unable to vomit due to the esophagus entering the stomach. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four hundred eighty 5-week old Sprague- Dawley, CD, outbred albino rats, 240 males Durbin PW, Williams MH, Jeung N, Arnold JS. Female rats were dosed for 14 days prior to mating, and then throughout mating, gestation, and lactation, with an additional week postweaning for 70 days. Pathological studies were undertaken on 106 mammary tumours (89 benign, 17 malignant) appearing spontaneously in 95 normal female Sprague-Dawley rats which were killed at Day 756. Almost all laboratory and domestic pet rats belong to a single species, the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) model was established with the left atrial appendage fastened with suture (6-0 polypropylene). Enlarged autoradiographic images are analyzed using the NIH Image software developed by Wayne Rasband (NIMH, NIH) to measure optical densities; gray scales are then converted to rainbow color scales (orange to yellow show high bindings; green to blue depict low bindings). Sprague-Dawley rats (10 per sex and group) daily exposed to technical bromethalin to oral doses from 0 to 125 μg kg−1 per day over 3 months were pathologically evaluated based on spongy degeneration (leukoencephalomyelopathy) in white fiber tracts of the brain, cerebellum, brain stem, pons, thoracic spinal cord, and optic nerves of males. After 13 weeks of chronic exposure to 100–400 ppm cobalt chloride in drinking water, male CD-1 mice showed marked dose-related decreases in fertility, testicular weight, and sperm concentration and motility, and increases in circulating levels of testosterone (Pedigo et al., 1988). In this paper we report on an investigation into male reproductive characteristics in three rat strains-Wistar, Sprague-Dawley (outbred strains) and DA (an inbred strain). Blood was collected by decapitation from 3000 rats between 12.00 and 13.00. Dominique Lison, in Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals (Fourth Edition), 2015. The aim of this study was to ascertain experimentally, through the model of altering the early mother-infant bond and the late social bond through isolation, the effect on the histologic characteristics of the liver in adult Sprague-Dawley rats subjected to intermittent chronic stress. Try out the SAS Sprague Dawley rat with our animal model evaluation program→ For example, there was evidence of enlarged and discolored spleens with hemisiderosis in high- and mid-dose females, testicular atrophy and spermatogenic deficits in high-dose males, and signs of encephalitis in high- and mid-dose females. Examination of tissues from a larger sampling of animals may reveal individual tissue variation that is not represented in the Atlas. Neurological signs, for example, head tilt and loss of equilibrium, were observed in lactating dams. Characteristics of Open Field Behavior of Wistar and Sprague-Dawley Rats Yuzo ASANO Safety Research Laboratory, Tanabe Seiyaku Co., Ltd., Kashima 3-16-89, Yodogawa-ku, Osaka 532, Japan (Received 31 January 1986/Accepted 2 May 1986) The open field test (OFT) was carried out on Wistar and Sprague-Dawley rats 2B). Sprague-Dawley rats maintained on diet containing 265 ppm cobalt for 98 days showed degenerative changes in the testes considered to be secondary to hypoxia (Mollenhauer et al., 1985). These data revealed that a discriminating index of toxicity appeared to be the changes in sperm morphology and motility to which a NOAEL of 2 mg/kg/day and a LOAEL of 9 mg/kg/day could be assigned. These findings suggest that clues from rats of familiar strains influence helping behavior, whereas clues from rats of unfamiliar strains are largely ignored. Sprague . Dawley ® Rat. The Sprague-Dawley rat is a hybrid albino strain with a long narrow head. They were maintained on a constant pellet diet and water ad libitum and were exposed to artificial light from 6.00 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. in rooms with controlled humidity and temperature.
