The purpose of this study was to investigate the hypothesis that dietary supplementation with glutamic acid has beneficial effects on growth performance, antioxidant system, intestinal morphology, serum amino acid profile and the gene expression of intestinal amino acid transporters in growing swine fed mold-contaminated feed. Fifteen pigs (LandracexLarge White) with a mean body weight (BW) of 55 kg were randomly divided into control group (basal feed), mycotoxin group (contaminated feed) and glutamate group (2% glutamate+contaminated feed). Compared with control group, mold-contaminated feed decreased average daily gain (ADG) and increased feed conversion rate (FCR). Meanwhile, fed mold-contaminated feed impaired anti-oxidative system and intestinal morphology, as well as modified the serum amino acid profile in growing pigs. However, supplementation with glutamate exhibited potential positive effects on growth performance of pigs fed mold-contaminated feed, ameliorated the imbalance antioxidant system and abnormalities of intestinal structure caused by mycotoxins. In addition, dietary glutamate supplementation to some extent restored changed serum amino acid profile caused by mold-contaminated feed. In conclusion, glutamic acid may be act as a nutritional regulating factor to ameliorate the adverse effects induced by mycotoxins.

Chitosan oligosaccharide (COS) is a vital antioxidant in piglets. However, knowledge remains limited about how it is transmitted from sows to piglets. This study aimed to investigate how maternal supplementation with COS affects the antioxidant capacity of suckling piglets. From d 85 of gestation to d 14 of lactation, 16 pregnant sows were divided into a control group (basal diet without COS supplemen-tation) and a COS group (30 mg COS/kg basal diet). Plasma and tissue samples were then collected from suckling piglets on d 14 of age. Compared with the control group, the piglets of sows from the COS group had greater villus length and ratio of villus length to crypt depth in the ileum and jejunum (P < 0.01) and plasma glutathione peroxidase activity (P < 0.01). RT-PCR results showed that the relative mRNA levels of Cu/Zn–superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPx1) significantly increased (P < 0.05) in the colon and duodenum, respectively, in the COS group pigs, whereas Mn-SOD and GPx1 significantly decreased (P < 0.05) in the liver compared with those in the control group. Glutathione peroxidase 4 and catalase relative expression did not present a significant difference between the 2 groups (P > 0.05). In conclusion, supplementing COS in sow diets promotes the development of the small intestine in suckling piglets and contributes to improving the intestinal antioxidant capacity to some extent, despite inconsistent results being observed in the liver. © 2016 American Society of Animal Science.

Glutamate is extensively metabolized in small intestine epithelial cells during its transcellular transfer from the lumen to bloodstream and after its uptake from the bloodstream. In order to study the effect of monosodium glutamate (MSG) supplementation given either by the parenteral route or by the enteral route on the circulating amino acid concentrations in growing-finishing pigs, animals received MSG at a dose equal to 0.25 g/kg body weight by intraperitoneal injection or by injection into the stomach. Up to 255 min, arterial and portal venous blood was collected and amino acid concentrations were measured. The results show that the glutamate concentrations in venous and arterial plasma increase rapidly after injection of MSG in stomach. However, glutamate concentration in both venous and arterial plasma was much higher after peritoneal than stomach injection. Aspartate and alanine concentrations in both venous and arterial plasma were higher after stomach than peritoneal injection. The results obtained are compatible with the view that i) a large part of glutamate in MSG is metabolized by the intestine in pigs; ii) at the dose used, MSG is, however, not entirely metabolized by the intestine and iii) glutamate metabolism in pig intestine leads to aspartate and alanine production.

The objective of the present experiment was to evaluate the effects of dietary supplementation with antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) on growth performance, diarrhea incidence, and survival rate of weaned pigs reared at 5 commercial farms (Farms A-E). Pigs (Farm A, n=486, genotype=Yorkshire (Y)×Landrace (L), weaning age=28±3. d; Farm B, n=360, genotype=Y×L×Duroc (D), weaning age=30±2. d; Farm C, n=558, genotype=Y×L×D, weaning age=30±2. d; Farm D, n=828, genotype=Y×L×D, weaning age=32±3. d; Farm E, n=576, genotype=Y, weaning age=24±3. d) were blocked (within farm) by body weight (BW) and sex and randomly assigned to 1 of 3 treatments: (1) a basal diet (control); (2) 2.0. g/kg of AMPs (AMPs-2) and (3) 3.0. g/kg of AMPs (AMPs-3). The AMPs used in the present study were a mixture of lactoferrin, cecropin, defensin, and plectasin. Each treatment group consisted of 6 replicates per farm. Each replicate consisted of 2 pens of 13-14 pigs, 2 pens of 10 pigs, 3 pens of 10-11 pigs, 4 pens of 11-12 pigs and 3 pens of 10-11 pigs on Farms A, B, C, D, and E respectively. Dietary supplementation with AMPs enhanced (linear, P<0.05; quadratic, P<0.05) average daily gain (ADG) of weaned pigs on all 5 farms. The average daily feed intake (ADFI) was increased (quadratic, P<0.05) by dietary supplementation with AMPs. The feed conversion rate (G:F) was also enhanced (linear, P<0.05) when AMPs were included in the diets of weaned pigs on commercial farms. The diarrhea incidence of AMPs-supplemented pigs was less (P<0.001) than that in control pigs. The survival rate of pigs fed AMPs-supplemented diet was higher (P<0.01) than that of control pigs. The present results indicated that AMPs had beneficial effects on growth performance, reduced the incidence of diarrhea, and increased the survival rate of weaned pigs. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether supplementation with chitosan (COS) could reduce diarrhea and to explore how COS alleviates intestinal inflammation in weaned pigs. Thirty pigs (DurocxLandracexYorkshire, initial BW of 5.65±0.27) weaned at age 21 d were challenged with enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli during a preliminary trial period, and then divided into three treatment groups. Pigs in individual pens were fed a corn-soybean meal diet, that contained either 0 (control), 50 mg/kg chlortetracycline, or 300 mg/kg COS for 21 days. The post-weaning diarrhea frequency, calprotectin levels and TLR4 protein expression were decreased (P<0.05) in both the COS and chlortetracycline groups compared with control. Simultaneously, supplemental COS and chlortetracycline had no effect on the mRNA expression of TNF-α in the jejunal mucosa, or on the concentrations of IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α in serum. However, COS supplementation improved (P<0.05) the mRNA expression of IL-1β and IL-6 in the jejunal mucosa. The results indicate that supplementation with COS at 300 mg/kg was effective for alleviating intestinal inflammation and enhancing the cell-mediated immune response. As feed additives, chitosan and chlortetracycline may influence different mechanisms for alleviating inflammation in piglets. © 2014 Xiao et al.

Accurate determination of the dietary proteins and amino acid requirements of swine is essential to improve growth and reduce production costs and nitrogen excretion in the environment. The paper reviewed the measurement of N and amino acid availability, including the conception of the standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of amino acids and ileal protein, and the measuring techniques of quantify endogenous nitrogen flow at the distal ileum of the pig. In addition, the impact of some factors, such as dietary fibre, exogenous enzymes, environment and carbohydrate supply, on ileal digestibility and utilization of N and amino acids, is discussed.

Iatric obesity is a growing problem around the world with an increasing prevalence among even infants and young children. The intestinal microbiota have recently been shown to affect the energy balance by influencing both the efficiency of calorie harvest from the diet and how harvested energy is used and stored and is a non-negligible contributor of the formation of obesity. Pig is a good model for use in human nutrition research but few studies have examined the differences among different pig breeds. This study was conducted to compare the diversities of intestinal microbiota among lean Landrace pig and four local Chinese pig breeds with obese phenotype including Bama mini-pig, Huanjiang mini-pig, Ningxiang pig and Lantang pig. These local Chinese pig breeds have obvious differences in genotype and phenotype compared to Landrace pig. The aim of this study was to examine the association between the intestinal microbiota composition in infancy and future obesity using pigs as a model. The results indicated that the local Chinese pig breeds had significantly greater microbiota diversities in the distal intestine than Landrace pig. There are also clear differences in genus that can influence the energy balance and contribute to obesity. The results indicated that the microbiota diversity in the distal intestine in LCBs was significant higher than in LD which challenge the result that the microbiota diversity decrease in obese individuals. Intestinal microbiota do contribute for the obese phenotype but genotype is the main contributor. The higher contents of intestinal microbial populations that show strong energy-harvesting ability may partly contribute to the obese phenotype in local Chinese pigs. The research may help to clarify the mechanism of phenotype diversity in pig breeds and contribute to studies on infant nutrition and obesity. © Medwell Journals, 2014.
