|Title:||Effect of dietary conjugated linoleic acid on serum levels of N2O5 and L-citrulline in goat kids||Authors:||Castro, N.
|Issue Date:||2007||Publisher:||0921-4488||Journal:||Small Ruminant Research||Abstract:||Forty new born male kids were allotted into two groups for the evaluation of the effects of dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on nitric oxide (NO) and l-citrulline levels in serum. The control group received no supplement CLA and the CLA group received 20 g/kg milk DM of CLA from birth to 1-month old. The kids were fed colostrum for 2 days and milk replacer from days 3 to 29. Blood samples (n = 40) were taken at 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 days of age. N2O5 (nitrite + nitrate) concentration in serum ranged from 21.93 to 26.15 and 34.90 to 40.59 μmol in control and CLA kids. The l-citrulline values ranged from 0.30 to 0.40 and 15.54 to 19.81 μmol in control and CLA kids. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
