Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 02 December 2023

  The aim of this study was to examine the effects of heat stress (HS) on the pituitary-adrenal axis and whether the treatments with early-age thermal conditioning (ETC) and vitamin C, alone and in combination, could have a beneficial effect in alleviating these effects. For the experiment, 400 one day-old ...  Read More

Reza Ijab; Esmail Ayen; Amir Khaki; Ali Soleimanzadeh

Volume 13, Issue 1 , March 2022, , Pages 61-70

  Heat stress (HS) has caused relative hypoxia, oxidative stress and high level of homocysteine, which contributes significantly to fertility failures in bulls. The aim of present study was to evaluate the role of dietary betaine (BET) in improving dual purpose Simmental (Fleckvieh) post-thawed semen quality ...  Read More

Effects of supplemental chromium picolinate and chromium nanoparticles on performance and antibody titers of infectious bronchitis and avian influenza of broiler chickens under heat stress condition

Farhad Hajializadeh; Hasan Ghahri; Alireza Talebi

Volume 8, Issue 3 , September 2017, , Pages 259-264

  This experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of different levels chromium picolinate (CrPic) and chromium nanoparticles (nano-Cr) on the performance and immune function of broilers under heat stress condition. A total of 320 Ross 308 broiler chicks (from 21 to 42 days) were assigned randomly ...  Read More

Hossain Hassanpour; Ali Kadivar; Pejman Mirshokraei; Hassan Nazari; Azita Afzali; Maryam Badisanaye

Volume 6, Issue 2 , June 2015, , Pages 125-130

  Sertoli cells are an essential group of cells in seminiferous epithelium which provide nutritional and structural supports for spermatogenic cells via cell junctions. In this study, the gene expression of connexin-43, the most abundantly distributed gap junction protein of cells, was investigated in ...  Read More
