Serum Protein Gel Agarose Electrophoresis in Captive Tigers.
Given the endangered standing of tigers (Panthera tigris), the well being of every particular person is vital and any knowledge on blood chemistry values can present invaluable info alongside the evaluation of bodily situation. The nature of tigers within the wild makes this can be very troublesome to acquire organic samples from free-living topics, due to this fact the values obtained from captive tigers present very helpful knowledge.
Serum protein electrophoresis is a great tool within the analysis and monitoring of a quantity of illnesses. In this examine, we evaluated agarose gel serum protein electrophoresis on samples from 11 wholesome captive tigers. Serum electrophoresis on all 11 tiger samples efficiently separated proteins into albumin, α1, α2, β1, β2 and γ globulin fractions as in different mammals.
Electrophoretic patterns had been comparable in all tigers. Mean± commonplace deviation or median and vary values obtained for every protein fraction in wholesome tigers had been, respectively: 3.6 ± 0.2, 0.21 (0.2-0.23), 1.2 ± 0.2, 10.7 ± 0.2, 0.4 (0.3-0.6), 1.2 (1-1.8) gr/dL.
The outcomes of this preliminary examine present the primary knowledge on serum electrophoretic patterns in tigers and could also be a helpful diagnostic device within the well being evaluation of this endangered species.
