isolation and identification of symbiotic bacteria from the skin, mouth, and rectum of wild and captive tree shrews.endosymbionts influence many aspects of their hosts' health conditions, including physiology, development, immunity, metabolism, etc. tree shrews (tupaia belangeri chinensis) have attracted increasing attention in modeling human diseases and therapeutic responses due to their close relationship with primates. to clarify the situation of symbiotic bacteria from their body surface, oral cavity, and anus, 12 wild and 12 the third generation of captive tree shrews were examined. based on morphologic ...201425465085
two bacterial infection models in tree shrew for evaluating the efficacy of antimicrobial agents.animal models are essential for the development of new anti-infectious drugs. although some bacterial infection models have been established in rodents, small primate models are rare. here, we report on two bacterial infection models established in tree shrew (tupaia belangeri chinensis). a burnt skin infection model was induced by dropping 5×10(6) cfu of staphylococcus aureus on the surface of a wound after a third degree burn. this dose of s. aureus caused persistent infection for 7 days and o ...201222345001
