genetic analysis of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase polymorphism in the genus cervus.a study of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase in cervus dama, cervus elaphus, cervus nippon and cervus elaphus x cervus nippon hybrids has revealed a polymorphism of this enzyme system in cervus elaphus as well as in the hybrid population. genetic analysis suggests that this enzyme system is controlled by one gene locus with two codominant alleles. the allele frequencies allow a clear discrimination between the hybrid population and the red deer population, whereas the fallow deer are fixed for th ...19902090010
standard karyotype and chromosomal evolution of the fallow deer (dama dama l.).g-banding, c-banding and silver staining techniques were used to study the chromosomes of the fallow deer dama dama (2n = 68, nf = 70). on the basis of g-banded metaphases a diagrammatic representation of banding patterns at the 350 band level is proposed. c-banding reveals constitutive heterochromatin in the centromeric regions of all the acrocentric chromosomes. faint c-banding is present in the centromere of the y chromosome, while the single pair of metacentrics are c-band negative. the nucl ...19902090390
[the sertoli cell nucleolus in domestic and wild animals].sertoli cells produce special microenvironment for developing germ cells; therefore it is assumed that they play primary role in the onset and control of spermatogenesis. in this connection we extended our previous study on the ultrastructure of sertoli cells in different domestic and wild animals with special regard to nucleolus. sertoli cells of domestic and wild ruminants possess the typical vesicular nucleolus except for fallow deer, in this species no vesicular nucleolus occurs in sertoli c ...19902102585
the pineal gland of the red deer male. histology and ultrastructure with notes on the fallow deer and mouflon pineals.the most conspicuous morphological feature of the investigated red deer pineal gland was very deep pineal recess, covered with continuous layer of the ependymal cells. its branches (2-3) reached the distal part of the gland. the slight differences in pineal structure of sexually active and sexually inactive red deer were observed. relatively large pineal glands both of mouflon and fallow deer showed many common as well as different structural features.19902136651
yersiniosis in farmed deer.samples from 77 chital (axis axis), 42 fallow (dama dama), 26 red (cervus elaphus), 7 rusa (cervus timorensis) and 1 sambar deer (cervus unicolor) were examined. yersinia pseudotuberculosis infection was diagnosed as the cause of death in 6 (23%) of the red and 23 (30%) of the chital deer. yersiniosis was the most common infectious cause of death diagnosed. affected deer were usually found moribund or dead, often with faecal staining of the perineum. gross pathology in chital included a fibrinou ...19902222364
the reproductive performance of farmed fallow deer (dama dama) in new south wales.observations on the reproductive performance of fallow deer on 47 farms in new south wales were made over 6 consecutive years. the minimum fawning rate for does varied significantly (p less than 0.001) between years, the corresponding fawning percentages varying from 75.0% to 96.4%, with an overall mean of 88.8%. the weaning rate also varied significantly (p less than 0.001) between years, the corresponding percentages varying from 65.0% to 89.1% with a mean over 6 years of 81.4%. weaning rates ...19902222374
the reversal of xylazine/ketamine immobilisation of fallow deer with yohimbine.fallow deer were immobilised using a combination of xylazine and ketamine. adult males (n = 10) and adult females (n = 10) received 4 mg/kg of each drug intramuscularly. juveniles (n = 11) received 2 mg/kg of each drug, intravenously. times to recumbency were as follows: adult males 4.9 +/- 2.9 min, adult females 4.1 +/- 1.9 min, juveniles 2.3 +/- 1.1 min. after 30 min each deer received 0.2 mg/kg of yohimbine, or an equal volume of sterile diluent intravenously. yohimbine substantially reduced ...19902264802

[raising of fallow deer inside fences from the view of ethics and animal welfare].during the last years, keeping of fallow deer for the purpose of meat production has become a branch of industry that requires special attention from the view of ethology and animal protection. in zoological and judicial terms, the deer habituated to paddock keeping still belong to wild animals that are held captive. this paper describes the valid demands of fallow deer to its biotic and abiotic environment and deals in particular with population density, feeding practices, antlers amputation, k ...19902351053
temporal relationship between the onset of oestrus, the preovulatory lh surge and ovulation in farmed fallow deer, dama dama.a study was conducted to determine the timing of ovulation relative to the onset of oestrus and the preovulatory lh surge in fallow deer. mature fallow does were randomly allocated to two treatments (n = 10 per treatment) designed to synchronize oestrus on or about 17 may. does assigned to group 1 (prostaglandin-induced oestrus) each initially received single intravaginal cidr [controlled internal drug release] devices for 13 days followed by an i.m. injection of 750 mg cloprostenol on day 12 (1 ...19902402000
adrenal and ovarian sources of progesterone secretion in young female fallow deer, dama dama.six young female fallow deer, including 3 that were ovariectomized at 9 months of age, were blood sampled at frequent intervals after i.v. injections of (1) acth analogue (tetracosactrin), (2) gnrh analogue (buserelin) and (3) saline solution on separate occasions at 11, 13, 15 and 18 months of age. relative to prechallenge plasma values, acth administration resulted in a 4-10-fold increase in mean plasma progesterone concentrations, but only a 10-45% increase in mean plasma cortisol concentrati ...19892495360
occurrence of intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in the digestive epithelium of fallow deer (dama dama l).intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies were observed in the digestive epithelium of fallow deer (dama dama l) suffering from bovine virus diarrhea/mucosal disease. similar inclusion bodies were also found in the ruminal epithelium of fallow deer subjected to overfeeding by supplementary food. inclusion bodies were not found in the upper alimentary mucosa of clinically healthy deer but were frequently found when these tissues were subjected to autolysis. at electron microscopical studies the inclusion ...19892560891
[legal regulations and practical application of studies of slaughtered game animals and their meat].meat regulations also involve game inspection. the previous publications on the one hand dealt with the regulations and their practice concerning game intended for slaughter, especially the control of fences and the gaining of meat. on the other hand regulations concerning game hunted for food (deer: red deer, sika deer, fallow deer, roe deer; horned ungulates: european mouflon, chamois; wild boar; european hare; european rabbit; game such as badger and raccoon) and regulations to be observed by ...19892617520
genetic polymorphism of transferrin in fallow deer, cervus dama l.a study of 15 blood protein systems in fallow deer, cervus dama l., has revealed a transferrin polymorphism in two german populations for the first time in this species. genetic analysis of complete families suggests that the transferrin system is controlled by one gene locus with two codominant alleles. the comparison of the present results with other studies on this species leads to the hypothesis that at least the european mainland fallow deer populations are genetically more differentiated t ...19892619108
light and scanning electron microscopy of fallow deer (dama dama) basic differences in size (mean +/- s.d. for at least 300 spermatozoa), shape and ultrastructure of the spermatozoa of fallow deer were detected (1) in comparison to other artiodactyls, (2) between different fallow bucks, and (3) between different months of the fertile season. the total length of the normal spermatozoon was 67.2 +/- 1.2 microns. the flat, paddle-shaped head was 8.2 +/- 0.3 microns long, 4.4 +/- 0.2 microns for the greatest width, 1.9 +/- 0.2 microns for basal width and, appro ...19892621694
an outbreak of mycobacterium bovis infection in fallow deer (dama dama).in an outbreak of mycobacterium bovis infection in fallow deer in south australia, 3 herds related by recent movement of deer were infected. from these 3 infected herds, 47 of 51 animals were tuberculosis at necropsy. a range of lesions was seen most of which differed from classical bovine tuberculosis in that pus was a white liquid, fibrous encapsulation was not marked and calcification was rare. histopathology was of classical tuberculosis. m. bovis was cultured from lesions and m. avium-intra ...19892673180
pulmonary mycosis in farmed deer: allergic zygomycosis and invasive aspergillosis.during 1988, pulmonary mycosis was diagnosed in four of 116 farmed deer examined on suspicion of tuberculosis. the histopathology showed allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis in a red deer (cervus elaphus) and the agent was identified as a zygomycete, probably absidia corymbifera, by immunofluorescence staining. three fallow deer (dama dama) had invasive necrotizing mycotic pneumonia and progressive exudative mycotic alveolitis caused by aspergillus fumigatus. in the red deer, weakness due to paratu ...19892689623
seasonal pattern of lh and testosterone secretion in adult male fallow deer, dama monthly intervals during the year blood samples were collected every 20 min for 12 h from 4 entire and 2 prepubertally castrated adult fallow deer bucks. in the entire bucks there were seasonal changes in mean concentrations and pulse frequencies of plasma lh. mean concentrations in late summer and autumn were 3-6 times higher than during other seasons. lh pulse frequency was low (0-1 pulses/12 h) during most of the year and increased only during the 2-month period (january and february) that ...19892704002

physiological effects of etorphine, acepromazine and xylazine on the black fallow deer (dama dama).confined and unconfined fallow deer (dama dama) of the black variety kept at whipsnade park were sedated with etorphine in combination with acepromazine, or xylazine or both, with or without atropine. induction, sedation and recovery times were recorded. during the period under sedation, systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures, electrocardiographs, body temperature, arterial blood gas pressures and ph, packed cell volume and plasma electrolytes and enzymes were monitored. in both groups, and w ...19892740632
mate choice on fallow deer leks.leks, on which males defend small clustered mating territories, may have evolved because of the unusual opportunities they provide for female choice of mating partners, and several studies of lek-breeding animals have demonstrated correlations between the mating success of males and their phenotype or behaviour. however, these could arise because (1) females select mates on the basis of male phenotypic traits; (2) males interfere with each other's mating attempts; or (3) females show preferences ...19892755506
[legal foundation and practical execution of slaughtering and meat examination of game animals].meat regulations also involve game inspection. on the one hand the previous publications dealt with the regulations and their practice concerning game intended for slaughter, especially the control of fences and the gaining of meat. on the other hand regulations concerning game hunted for food (deer: red deer, sika deer, fallow deer, roe deer; horned ungulates: european mufflon, chamois; wild boar; european hare; european rabbit; game such as badger and raccoon) and regulations to be observed by ...19892763282
pleural mesothelioma in a european spotted fallow deer (cervus dama).an adult, captive european spotted fallow deer (cervus dama) was submitted for necropsy due to sudden death. gross lesions consisted of serosanguinous fluid in the thoracic cavity with multiple, often confluent, nodules covering visceral and parietal pleura. microscopic examination revealed tubular structures lined by cuboidal cells covering a delicate fibrous stroma. gross and microscopic morphology was consistent with a mesothelioma.19892810560
determination of the transfer of cesium and iodine from feed into domestic animals.the transfer of 131i and 137cs, released after the chernobyl accident, into domestic animals was studied experimentally in order to determine transfer coefficients from feed into animal products under realistic conditions. the 137cs transfer coefficients for meat were calculated to be: 0.01 d/kg beef (cow), 0.038 d/kg beef (heifer), 0.038 d/kg beef (bull), 0.35 d/kg veal, 0.4 d/kg pork, 0.33 d/kg sheep, 0.28 d/kg fallow deer and 1.3 d/kg chicken. the transfer coefficients for cow's milk were cal ...19892814462
serological investigations for some bacterial and viral pathogens in fallow deer (cervus dama) and wild boar (sus scrofa) of the san rossore preserve, tuscany, italy.sera of 43 fallow deer (cervus dama) of the san rossore preserve (tuscany, italy) were examined for antibodies against eight pathogens; one proved positive for brucella sp., 21 for listeria monocytogenes, 34 for chlamydia psittaci, three for coxiella burnetii, one for infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus, 11 for parainfluenza-3 virus, 25 for bovine viral diarrhea virus and six for bovine respiratory syncytial virus. no age and sex difference in the positivity rates and titers was evidenced, w ...19882832622
