effects of prenatal and postnatal photoperiods and of the pineal gland on early testicular development in the marsh rice rat (oryzomys palustris).prepubertal male rice rats are responsive reproductively to photoperiod early in postnatal development. testicular growth was inhibited in animals gestated and reared to 28 days of age on photoperiods ranging from 8 to 13 h of light per day, and stimulated in animals reared on 14 h or more of light per day, suggesting a critical photoperiod between 13 and 14 h for testicular growth. in addition, postnatal photoperiod markedly affected testicular development in animals exposed to various prenatal ...19957626725
effect of photoperiod on gonadal maintenance and development in the marsh rice rat (oryzomys palustris).reproductive responsiveness to photoperiod was examined in adult and prepubertal rice rats. in experiment 1, adult males on 16l:8d and 14l:10d maintained testicular size, while exposure to 12l:12d and 10l:14d resulted in testicular regression, followed by spontaneous testicular recrudescence. adult females (experiment 2) on long photoperiods had larger uterine and ovarian weights at most times examined and maintained vaginal patency compared to females on short photoperiods. reproductive develop ...19938282176
four new gymnophallid digeneans from rice rats, willets, and molluscs in florida.gymnophalloides heardi n. sp. differs from gymnophalloides tokiensis fujita, 1925 and gymnophalloides seoi lee et al., 1993 in the smaller body size, presence of a single, lobed vitellarium, and elongate seminal vesicle. in contrast with other gymnophallid digeneans that utilize avian and bivalve hosts, g. heardi is the first species to be reported from a rodent oryzomys palustris (harlan); its second intermediate host is a pulmonate gastropod, melampus bidentatus (l.). three gymnophallid specie ...19958544066
isolation, genetic diversity, and geographic distribution of bayou virus (bunyaviridae: hantavirus).bayou hantavirus, previously implicated in human hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in louisiana, was isolated from a rice rat (oryzomys palustris) captured in georgia. the presence of antibody among rice rats captured throughout the southeastern united states and the extent of diversity among the genetic variants of bayou viruses suggest that the rice rat is the most likely natural reservoir of the virus and that both virus and host have probably co-evolved for some years.19979347961
bayou virus-associated hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in eastern texas: identification of the rice rat, oryzomys palustris, as reservoir host.we describe the third known case of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) due to bayou virus, from jefferson county, texas. by using molecular epidemiologic methods, we show that rice rats (oryzomys palustris) are frequently infected with bayou virus and that viral rna sequences from hps patients are similar to those from nearby rice rats. bayou virus is associated with o. palustris; this rodent appears to be its predominant reservoir host.19989452404

catacamas virus, a hantaviral species naturally associated with oryzomys couesi (coues' oryzomys) in honduras.the primary objective of this study was to extend our knowledge of the geographical distribution, genetic diversity, and natural host associations of the hantaviruses indigenous to north america. antibody to a hantavirus was found in 5 (20.8%) of 24 coues' oryzomys (oryzomys couesi) and none of 41 other rodents captured near the town of catacamas in eastern honduras, and a hantavirus was isolated from one of the antibody-positive coues' oryzomys. analyses of nucleotide and amino acid sequence da ...200617124003
anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody monotherapy causes destructive advanced periodontitis in rice rats (oryzomys palustris).angiogenesis inhibitors (agi) are commonly used in combination chemotherapy protocols to treat cancer, and have been linked to osteonecrosis of the jaw (onj). however, it is unknown if agi therapy alone is sufficient to induce onj. we have previously established an onj model in rice rats with localized periodontitis that receive zoledronic acid (zol). the purpose of this study was to use this model to determine the role of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor a (anti-vegf) antibody treatment ...202031707108
attenuated amiloride-sensitive current and augmented calcium-activated chloride current in marsh rice rat (oryzomys palustris) airways.prolonged heat and sea salt aerosols pose a challenge for the mammalian airway, placing the protective airway surface liquid (asl) at risk for desiccation. thus, mammals inhabiting salt marshes might have acquired adaptations for asl regulation. we studied the airways of the rice rat, a rodent that inhabits salt marshes. we discovered negligible na+ transport through the epithelial sodium channel (enac). in contrast, carbachol induced a large cl- secretory current that was blocked by the calcium ...201931491720
comparison of isoflurane, ketamine-dexmedetomidine, and ketamine-xylazine for general anesthesia during oral procedures in rice rats (oryzomys palustris).rice rats (oryzomys palustris) are an unconventional laboratory species that has been used to study photoperiodicity, periodontitis, and osteonecrosis of the jaw. interventional procedures that require anesthesia, including oral procedures, are sometimes necessary in preclinical settings. the use of anesthetics including isoflurane and ketamine combined with α2-adrenoreceptor agonists, such as dexmedetomidine and xylazine, is well-established for laboratory rodents. however, their effects have b ...201930572978
