Disease relevance of Didelphis

  • The distribution of cellular cGMP accumulation responses to E. coli ST and guanylin in the opossum (Didelphis virginiana) and raccoon (Procyon lotor) revealed that proximal small intestine had greater magnitudes of cGMP responses than did the distal small intestine [1].
  • A 3-mo-old male, feral opossum (Didelphis virginiana) was presented to the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (USA) for evaluation of prolonged dyspnea [2].
