Sex-related differences of femur properties in silver foxes (Vulpes vulpes)

Tatara Marcin , Krupski Witold , Jakubczak Andrzej , Bienko Marek , Kostro Krzysztof

Considering limited information available on skeletal system properties in foxes, the aim of this study was to determine morphological, geometrical and densitometric parameters of femur obtained from males and females. The study was performed on 1-year old male (n=5) and female (n=6) silver foxes. Right femur was isolated and its weight and length were measured. Using quantitative computed tomography (QCT) technique and Somatom Emotion Siemens apparatus, bone...

Acrylamide is a byproduct that forms when certain carbohydrate and aminoacid rich foods are fried, baked, or roasted at high temperatures (>120°C). Our earlier study showed that acrylamide altered the morphology and histology of the small intestinal wall damaging the intestinal barrier and reducing absorption surface. The study was performed to determine whether acrylamide influences gut-bone axis in foetus when administered to guinea pig during the last 35 days of pr...

The aim of this study was to determine morphological and densitometric properties of lumbar vertebrae obtained from male and female silver foxes. Five lumbar vertebrae (L2–L6) were isolated from 1-year-old males (n=5) and females (n=6) and cleaned from remaining soft tissues to determine bone weight and vertebral body length. Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and SOMATOM EMOTION SIEMENS apparatus (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany) were used to determine t...
