The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of iodine yeast (I-yeast) supplementation on the performance, egg traits, and iodine content of eggs of laying hens. The experiment was conducted as a completely randomized design. A total of 60 laying hens (Hy-Line Brown), 25 wk of age, was divided into 3 groups (4 replicates), and a feeding experiment was conducted for 12 wk. The concentrations and forms of iodine added to the basal diet were as follows: control group, 1 mg of iodine/kg of feed, Ca(IO 3) 2·H 2O; experimental groups E1 and E2, 1 and 2 mg of iodine per kilogram of feed, I-yeast, respectively. The iodine yeast did not significantly affect BW gain. Lower level of hen day egg production for groups E1 and E2 was not confirmed statistically; however, it was probably the consequence of low replication. Feed intake was the lowest in the E1 group and feed conversion rate was the highest in the E2 group. Furthermore, the egg and albumen weight was the highest in the group supplemented with 2 mg/kg of iodine from I-yeast (P < 0.05). The concentration of iodine in the egg yolk from groups E1 and E2 was respectively about 80 and 90% higher, compared with the control group. Eggshells from the group fed with 2 mg/kg of I-yeast contained almost 3 times more iodine than eggshells from the control group. The results suggest that iodine yeast supplementation in the diet of laying hens is an effective method for increasing iodine concentration in eggs and thus could contribute to elimination of iodine deficiency disorders in humans consuming iodine-enriched eggs. © 2012 Poultry Science Association Inc.

Background The influence of recombinant human prolactin (rh-PRL) added to Biolasol solution (concentration 1 μg/L) on selected markers (pH, osmolarity, Na(I) and K(I) concentration) and enzymatic activity (alanine aminotransferase [ALT], aspartate aminotransferase [AST], and lactate dehydrogenase [LDH]) in perfundates was investigated during flushing and preservation of the isolated porcine kidneys. Methods The pH, osmolarity, concentration of K(I) and Na(I), and enzymatic activity were determined in perfundates collected after the 5th and 30th minutes of perfusion, after 24 hours of organ preservation, and in the 5th and 30th minutes of reperfusion. Kidneys had been flushed and stored in Biolasol (control group) and in Biolasol with rh-PRL (experimental group). Obtained results were compared with Biolasol solution. Results In the experimental group, the decrease in pH value in the 5th minute of reperfusion was noted. There was an increase in K(I) concentration, and Na(I) concentration decreased in the 5th and 30th minutes of reperfusion. ALT activity during perfusion and preservation increased, whereas at the 5th and 30th minutes of reperfusion it decreased. AST activity increased during perfusion and preservation and decreased in the 5th and 30th minutes of reperfusion. LDH activity was increased but decreased in the 5th minute of reperfusion. Conclusions Addition of 1 μg/L rh-PRL to Biolasol solution decreases pH and osmolarity values; influences Na(I) and K(I) concentration; increases ALT, AST activity during perfusion and preservation of organs; and decreases ALT, AST activity during reperfusion. © 2016 Elsevier Inc.

We present the results of a study on the influence of albumin and prolactin concentrations and intravascular fluid pH on vein permeability for albumin. Permeability conditions were simulated depending on albumin concentration, pH value and prolactin concentration. In research model an in vitro method was applied using natural membrane - porcine vena cava inferior. Vein permeability was in the 0.63% to 5.69% range. In control variant permeability was ∼2.54% and increased ∼2 fold at decreased albumin and PRL concentrations. At increased albumin concentration permeability was decreased 4-fold. Albumin concentration significantly influences albumin permeability. © 2014 Bentham Science Publishers.

The Biolasol® liquid is an innovative solution used for perfusion, reperfusion and preservation of parenchymal organs of the abdominal cavity. Substances in the liquid prevent cellular oedema and help to maintain a proper water/mineral as well as acid/base balance in the intracellular environment. They also minimize free-radical injuries and ensure the integrity of the cellular membrane structure. The Biolasol® liquid has been shown to be much more efficient than the HTK liquid in the preservation of kidneys. The Biolasol® liquid containing 0.5 mM of vitamin C has been modified by adding ions of Se(IV), Zn(II), and their effect on the stability of the solution was examined. An accelerated aging test was applied to test the liquid stability. The test, based on the laws of chemical kinetics, was conducted at four temperatures at a 10°C step, that is: 50°C±0.05, 60°C±0.05, 70°C±0.05 and 80°C±0.05. The relative humidity equalled 75% of RH and the duartion of the test was 40 days. In order to determine the stability of the tested solutions, the Arrhenius Dependence equation was used, applied to the effect of temperature on the glucose decomposition reaction rate: lnk=lnA-(Ea /RT). The results indicate that the addition of zinc decreases the stability of the liquid by 30.5%, while the addition of selenium prolongs the stability by 8.21%. This is explained by the synergism of action of vitamin C and Se4+ antioxidant in the tested liquid. Zinc ions present in the solution increase the glucose decomposition reaction rate. © 2015, Polish Society Magnesium Research. All rights reserved

The influence of incubation conditions, enzyme type, hydrolysis time, and potassium iodide concentration on hydrolysis and iodine enrichment were studied in supernatant and pellets of Saccharomyces cervisiae hydrolysates. The type of enzyme used and incubation time significantly influence hydrolysis efficiency and protein concentration in supernatant and pellet. The highest protein hydrolysis efficiency was obtained by 24-h incubation with papain. Significantly lower values were observed for pepsin and autolysis. The potassium iodide concentration influences the iodine content of supernatant and pellet, but not hydrolysis. Iodide enrichment of supernatant and pellet depends on the concentration of iodide using during incubation. High concentration of iodide and long incubation times were the conditions for optimal iodide enrichment and high-protein hydrolysates. The optimal hydrolysis efficiency and iodine enrichment were obtained during 24-h incubation with papain in a 4.5-mM potassium iodide medium. The efficiency reached 98.22% with iodine concentrations of 2,664.91 and 9,200.67 μg/g iodine in pellet and supernatant, respectively. © 2012 The Author(s).

Iodine deficiency is a common phenomenon, threatening the whole global human population. Recommended daily intake of iodine is 150 g for adults and 250 g for pregnant and breastfeeding women. About 50% of human population can be at risk of moderate iodine deficiency. Due to this fact, increased iodine supplementation is recommended, through intake of iodized mineral water and salt iodization. The aim of this study was to investigate permeation and absorption of iodide from iodine bioplex (experimental group) in comparison with potassium iodide (controls). Permeation and absorption processes were investigated in vitro using a porcine intestine. The experimental model was based on a standard Franz diffusion cell (FD-Cell). The iodine bioplex was produced using Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and whey powder: iodine content - 388 g/g, total protein - 28.5%, total fat - 0.9%., glutamic acid - 41.2%, asparaginic acid - 29.4%, lysine - 24.8%; purchased from: F.Z.N.P. Biochefa, Sosnowiec, Poland. Potassium iodide was used as controls, at 388 g iodine concentration, which was the same as in iodine-enriched yeast bioplex. A statistically significant increase in iodide permeation was observed for iodine-enriched yeast bioplex in comparison with controls - potassium iodide. After 5h the total amount of permeated iodide from iodine-enriched yeast bioplex was 85%, which is ~ 2-fold higher than controls - 37%. Iodide absorption was by contrast statistically significantly higher in controls - 7.3%, in comparison with 4.5% in experimental group with iodine-enriched yeast bioplex. Presented results show that iodide permeation process dominates over absorption in case of iodine-enriched yeast bioplex.

The in vitro permeation and absorption of calcium ions across the small intestine were measured at different concentrations of calcium gluconate solutions (1.0, 10.0 and 20.0 mM) with or without prolactin. The calcium ions permeated through the small intestine from a donor environment to an acceptor environment that mimicked the conditions in the stomach to ileum segment of the digestive tract. The permeation and absorption of calcium were directly dependent on the calcium concentration of the solutions. At 10 and 20 mM permeation was significantly higher than that at 1.0 mM (p<0.05). In the presence of prolactin both permeation and absorption increase considerably. At the lowest concentration (1.0 mM) simulating calcium deficiency, there was compensation by the small intestine, suggesting that such deficiency stimulates its mobilization from intestinal tissue. Prolactin enhances the calcium mobilization process even at sufficient calcium intakes. It is suggested that prolactin takes part in regulation of calcium homeostasis in the organism. © 2012 Bentham Science Publishers.

Biolasol solution (Pharmaceutical Research and Production Plant Biochefa, Sosnowiec, Poland) is a novel extracellular perfusion and ex vivo hypothermic kidney preservation solution. It ensures maintenance of homeostasis, reduces tissue edema, has low viscosity, and allows the graft to preserve structural and functional integrity. It minimizes ischemia-reperfusion damage.Perfundates from control and transplanted kidneys flushed with Biolasol or ViaSpan solutions (Arkas, Warszawa, Poland) were analyzed. Parameters of serum and urine collected from 12 pigs after auto-transplantation were also analyzed. Renal medulla was investigated for structural alterations by analyzing hematoxylin and eosin-stained slides. The mean survival time of pigs after the auto-transplantation procedure was the measure for the novel Biolasol solution effectiveness.We observed a statistically significant decrease in marker enzyme levels alanine transaminase, aspartate transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, and ions (Na and K) in pigs with grafts flushed with Biolasol. Histopathologic examination revealed that the renal cortex structure was not damaged after the use of Biolasol solution.Biolasol solution protects kidneys against ischemia damage and does not differ significantly from the golden standard ViaSpan solution.
