Interactions between folate and ascorbic acid in the guinea pig. Lewis CM, McGown EL, Rusnak MG, Sauberlich HE. Possible interactions between folic acid (folate) and ascorbic acid (AA) have been suspected because megaloblastic anemia is occasionally observed in scorbutic patients, and it may or may not respond to folate by: 5.

I bought this book not to long ago to learn more about my guinea pig (snickers). I did learn many things about my guinea pig. And I would definitely recommend this book for first time guinea pig owners or people who would like to learn more about guinea pigs.

This book has Folate metabolism in the guinea pig. book lot of good information in it/5(25). Perturbing the metabolism of one of the methyl donors reveals the intermingling of these metabolic pathways. Total hepatic folate content decreased by 31 to 40 percent in rats after 2 weeks on a choline-deficient diet (Selhub et al., ; Varela-Moreiras et al., ).

This effect was reversed by refeeding choline (Varela-Moreiras et al., ). The domestic guinea pig (Cavia porcellus) has been bred in captivity for at least years and probably originated in Peru, Argentina, or Brazil (Weir, ).

Many laboratory guinea pigs were bred from a strain established by Dunkin and Hartley in (Dunkin et al., ).

The Laboratory Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Hamster, and Other Rodents is a single volume, comprehensive book sanctioned by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), covering the rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil and other rodents often used in research.

This well-illustrated reference won a PROSE Award for Best Single Volume Reference in Science from the Association of. The Biology of the Guinea Pig focuses on the use of the guinea pig as a substrate in book provides a comprehensive coverage of material related to applied care and management of guinea pigs and their diseases.

Topics on guinea pig behavior, genetics, specific pathogen-free technique, biomethodology, and colony husbandry are also covered.5/5(1).

Folic acid was supplemented to the basal diet at the rate of mg per kg ( mg per lb). Total pigs born per litter, pigs born alive per litter and pigs weaned per litter increased approximately pig. It has been shown that the folic acid requirement is elevated in pregnant women and that serum folates fluctuate during pregnancy.

Calcium deficiency usually develops in the weeks before, or shortly after, a pregnant guinea pig gives birth. Signs associated with the calcium deficiency include dehydration, depression, loss of appetite, muscle spasms, and convulsions. However, some guinea pigs may die suddenly without displaying any signs.

Causes. Medical Reference Books for You and Your Vet. Serious owners and vets (especially those unfamiliar with guinea pigs) should consider purchasing one or more reference books. They can provide important information on guinea pig illnesses and dose charts for medicines commonly prescribed for guinea pigs.

Introduction. This chapter reviews information on the clinical biochemistry and hematology of the rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), guinea pig (Cavia porcellus), hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) and other rodents, including the gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus), chinchilla (Chinchilla laniger), degu (Octodon degus), deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), dormouse (Gliridae family), kangaroo rat Cited by: The Effect of Folic Acid on Tyrosine Metabolism in Guinea Pigs VINCENT G.

Folate (vitamin B 9) and cobalamin (vitamin B 12) play important roles in amino acid metabolism and nucleic acid synthesis (Wagner,Zingg, Jones,Fenech,Lopes et al, ). Most folate is absorbed in the proximal small intestine, whereas most cobalamin is absorbed in the distal small intestine (Halsted,Trugo et al Cited by: 2.

InTheobald Smith reported that guinea pigs died of a peculiar hemorrhagic disease when fed on a cereal diet without succulent vege- tables. More than 10 years later, Holst and Frolich directed attention to the similarity between this malady in the guinea pig and human scurvy.

Pregnant guinea pig received one of the following chronic treatments via intubation into the oral cavity: 3 or 4 g -1 x day-1 as two equally divided doses 2 h apart: isocaloric sucrose. The Biology of the Guinea Pig focuses on the use of the guinea pig as a substrate in research.

The occurrence o a characteristic syndrome was first noted by Wuizen and Bahrs (3, 44, 45), when guinea pigs were raised on a diet. Diagnosis of nutritional deficiencies by observation is difficult.

Quite often, the clinical signs are the result of a complex of mismanagement and infectious diseases, including parasitism, as well as malnutrition. For most nutritional deficiencies, the signs are not specific.
