Disease relevance of Mustelidae

  • However, several "in frame" deletions of the MC1R gene region implicated in melanism of other species were detected within members of the genera Martes and Gulo [1].
  • From 1998 to 2002, serum samples from 64 wolverines (Gulo gulo) from the Brooks Range, Alaska, were tested for antibodies to CDV, CPV-2, and canine adenovirus (CAV) [2].
  • Sporadic cases of fox mange have also been diagnosed in lynx (Lynx lynx), pine marten (Martes martes) and domestic dogs [3].
 

Psychiatry related information on Mustelidae

  • The pattern of chlorobenzene and PCB homologues found in wolf liver are more similar to those found in marten (Martes americana) and other carnivores than caribou (Rangifer tarandus), perhaps reflecting similarities in food habits and metabolic capacities [4].
 

High impact information on Mustelidae

  • Within Mustelidae, Bayesian analyses are unambiguous in supporting otter monophyly (Lutrinae), and in both MP and Bayesian analyses Martes is paraphyletic with respect to Gulo and Eira, as has been observed in some previous molecular studies [5].
  • Prospective comparison of sodium hyaluronate and hylan G-F 20 in a clinical practice: comment on the concise communication by Martens [6].
  • Type I STS markers are more informative than cytochrome B in phylogenetic reconstruction of the Mustelidae (Mammalia: Carnivora) [7].
  • NGG1p/ADA3p is a yeast dual function regulator required for the complete glucose repression of GAL4p-activated genes (Brandl, C. J., Furlanetto, A. M., Martens, J. A., and Hamilton, K. S. (1993) EMBO J. 12, 5255-5265) [8].
  • Dichloromethane extracts of wolverine (Gulo gulo, Mustelinae, Mustelidae) anal gland secretion were examined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry [9].
 

Biological context of Mustelidae

 

Associations of Mustelidae with chemical compounds

  • Concentrations of selected essential and non-essential elements in arctic fox (Alopex lagopus) and wolverines (Gulo gulo) from the Canadian Arctic [12].
  • The most abundant OC analytes detected in wolverine liver were PCB-153, PCB-180, and oxychlordane (OXY) [13].
  • For 2 weeks animals were fed three different isocaloric (18 cal% proteins, 19 cal% fat, and 63 cal% carbohydrate) diets: (1) a standard rat chow (B), (2) a high sucrose diet (S, 63 cal% sucrose), or (3) an S diet supplemented with marine fish oil (S + FO, Martens, 30 wt% of n-3-FA) [14].
  • While the molar concentrations of THg were correlated with Se in arctic foxes and wolverines, the hepatic Hg/Se molar ratios were consistently lower than unity; suggesting that Se-mediated detoxification pathways of Hg are not overwhelmed at current exposure [12].
  • In conclusion, a 3:2 mixture of tiletamine-zolazepam/xylazine is a safe and effective immobilizing agent for martens when conducting non-surgical field procedures [15].
 

Gene context of Mustelidae

  • The enantiomer fractions (EFs) of several chiral OCs, including PCB atropisomers, in wolverines were also determined [13].
  • The antigenic specificities of six (1--6) IgG allotypes of the domestic mink were tested in the sera of closely related species of Mustelidae family and distant mammalian species [16].
  • Mean (+/- SE) induction times for martens and short-tailed weasels were 1.8 +/- 0.2 min and 46 +/- 4.1 sec, respectively; recovery times were 100.4 +/- 19.3 min and 97.9 +/- 6.3 min, respectively [17].
