Thymol improves barrier function and attenuates inflammatory responses in porcine intestinal epithelial cells during lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inflammation
It is well known that essential oil thymol exhibits anti-bacterial activity. The protective effects of thymol on pig intestine during inflammation is yet to be investigated. In this study, an in vitro (LPS)-induced ...
Development of novel microparticles for effective delivery of thymol and lauric acid to pig intestinal tract
Antibiotics have been widely supplemented in feeds at sub-therapeutic concentrations to prevent post-weaning diarrhea and increase the overall productivity of pigs. However, the emergence of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria ...
Effects of a microencapsulated formula of organic acids and essential oils on nutrient absorption, immunity, gut barrier function, and abundance of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli F4 (ETEC F4) in weaned piglets challenged with ETEC F4
Abstract: The objective was to study the effects of microencapsulated organic acids (OA) and essential oils (EO) on growth performance, immune system, gut barrier function, nutrient digestion and absorption, and abundance ...
Distribution and localization of porcine calcium sensing receptor (pCaSR) in different tissues of weaned piglets
Taste receptors including calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) are expressed in various animal tissues, and CaSR plays important roles in nutrient sensing and the physiology, growth and development of animals. However, molecular ...
