Do changes in dietary chemistry during ontogeny affect digestive performance in adults of the herbivorous rodent Octodon degus?
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008-11)
We characterize the flexibility in digestive performance in degus (Octodon degus) an herbivorous rodent. We tested the hypothesis that dietary and physiological-digestive flexibility are correlated. Degus were fed with ...
In vitro versus in vivo protein digestibility techniques for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score) applied to chickpea fractions
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-11-01)
Seven different in vitro methods to determine the protein digestibility for chickpea proteins were considered and also the application of these methodologies for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino ...
Nutritive value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee- stored pollen in the stingless bee, Scaptotrigona postica Latr. (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Meliponini)
(Elsevier B.V., 2000-01-01)
In Meliponini bees, pollen is stored inside the hive. We compared the nutritional value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee-stored pollen of Scaptotrigona postica. The results showed no differences in ...
Morphology and Cyclic Activity of the Digestive Gland of Zidona dufresnei (Caenogastropoda: Volutidae)
(Institute of Malacology, 2015-04)
Zidona dufresnei is a carnivorous snail that plays an important role in the trophic web as a top predator. It is a threatened species due to high levels of fisheries exploitation. In this study, we describe the morphology ...
Dietary carbohydrate and food processing affect the digestive physiology of Piaractus mesopotamicus
The responses of the digestive physiology of juvenile pacu to different diet processing were studied. Fish were fed with isoproteic diets with 260 g kg−1 of crude protein (CP) containing different levels of carbohydrate ...
Effect of different diets on digestive enzyme activities, in vitro digestibility, and midgut gland structure in juvenile crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2016-10-17)
This study investigated the effects of food quality on digestive enzyme activities, in vitro protein digestibility and histological traits of the midgut gland in juvenile crayfish Cherax quadricarinatus. Animals of a wide ...
