Title Alternative Contents of the Proceedings of the Okayama Association for Laboratory Animal Science : From No.1 to 35
FullText URL poalas_035_046_058.pdf
Author Sato, Katsunori|
Abstract The Proceedings of the Okayama Association for Laboratory Animal Science were initially issued in 1983, the year following the establishment of the association, and No.35 is the latest.Scince issue No.2, the proceedings have consisted of the following content: <Greeting from the President>, <Summaries of Lectures (special, commemorative, and invited lectures), <Contribution>, <Introduction of Animal Research Facilities in Japan>, <Meeting Highlights>, <Member directory>, and <Organization and Rules of the Association>, in this order. Additionally, the publication of references and advertisements by supporting members recently started. Number 19 (issued in 2002) was the first to present a table of contents in English on its back cover, and this style has been maintained to date. On March 24, the president of the association and director of the Okayama University Libraries exchanged copies of an agreement regarding the registration of these contents with the Okayama University Scientific Achievement Repository (OUSAR) and other databases, providing a basis for their current registration and publication. Literature-based information is also being collected and published in databases organized by the Non-profit Organization Japan Medical Abstracts Society (Ichushi) and Japan Science & Technology Agency (JST).

Title Alternative Introduction to the activities of the Regional Associations for Laboratory Animal Science
FullText URL poalas_035_038_045.pdf
Abstract わが国には現在11 の地区研究会があり、独自の活動が展開されています。本報では、各地区研究会の間での情報交換、交流などを意図して、平成30 年度の活動について北から順に紹介します。なお、会長、事務局担当者及び講演者、話題提供者の方々のお名前は敬称を省略させていただきました。詳細な内容をご希望の方は各地区研究会の事務局にお問い合わせ下さい。
Abstract Alternative There are eleven Regional Associations for Laboratory Animal Science in Japan, and each of them conducts independent activities. The present paper introduces the activities of the Regional Associations in 2017 to promote information exchange and interaction among them, starting from those of the northernmost association. In the paper, honorifics for the staff of the office, lecturers, and people who provided us with information on topics have been omitted. For the details, please contact the office of each Regional Association.

Title Alternative Introduction of Center for Comparative Medicine, Hyogo College of Medicine based on concept of laboratory animal allergy prevention
FullText URL poalas_035_029_037.pdf
Author Sagara, Eiji|
Abstract Laboratory animal allergy (LAA) is an important problem on considering the occupational safety and health of animal workers. The Center for Comparative Medicine (CCOM), Hyogo College of Medicine, opened on April 1, 2018, is an animal experiment facility designed and constructed based on the concept of LAA prevention. This CCOM is located on the first and second floors of a newly built "education· research building". Methods for the prevention of LAA are airflow control by air conditioning equipment, breeding equipment, experimental equipment, cage transporters that suppress the diffusion of aero allergens, spraying of slightly acidic water mist, and prevention of allergen exposure by the strict use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In addition, we implemented training on LAA and take measures to prevent office workers from being exposed to laboratory animal-derived allergens.

Title Alternative Challenge to hand-rear of the common marmoset
FullText URL poalas_035_026_028.pdf
Author Hashimoto, Haruna|
Abstract In mid July 2018, the common marmoset bred in Okayama University gave birth to a triplet. It is very difficult to raise three infants. We selected the most heaviest one of her siblings, and we call her “POCKE”. We brought her up on the bottle for 80 days from the birth instead of her own mother. After 81 days, she finaly weand. Now she has become attached to human, but we hope that she gets back to their original community, as a “common” marmoset.

Title Alternative Biochemical Evaluation of Maternal Stress by Separating Infant Mice for Animal Experiments
FullText URL poalas_035_022_025.pdf
Author Yata, Norio|
Abstract Corticosterone, the glucocorticoid in rodents, is released from adrenal cortex in response to stress. Sometimes, for use in experiments, infants may be separated from their mother mouse. We studied the stress of mother mouse when she separates from infants. As a result, the concentration of corticosterone in the blood of the mother mouse tended to increase, by pulling her infants apart. In the case of using infant mice for animal experiments, it was suggested that it is necessary to consider the maternal stress.

Title Alternative What kind of environmental enrichment does mother mouse want?
FullText URL poalas_035_018_021.pdf
Author Ishihara, Sumire|
Abstract Environmental enrichment, whose material is commercially available, is today thought to improve animal welfare, for instance, control of stress. There were some reports that these report contribution of suppression of stress, which the mother mice suffer during nursing their pup. However, the effects on stress-suppression by introducing the enrichment materials is unknown. In this study, determined plasma and urinary corticosterone in the mother mice with or without the materials from their making to weaning.

Title Alternative Species identification of a laboratory strain belonging to the family Arvicolinae

Author Takahata, Satoshi| Isemura, Natsumi| Mekada, Kazuyuki|
Abstract This study investigated the taxonomic status of a laboratory strain belonging to the family Arvicolinae for which the wild species name is unknown. This vole strain, though considered formerly a Lemming, was distinguishable from any Lemmus species by features of its appearance, skull and molar morphology, and conventional chromosomal pattern. Subsequently, we read the nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome b (Cyb) gene and constructed a molecular phylogenetic tree. We found that this vole strain belongs to the same clade as Microtus guenthe

Title Alternative Reactivity of secretory immunoglobulin A against gut bacteria is attenuated by high-fat diet consumption
FullText URL poalas_035_009_011.pdf
Author Tsuruta, Takeshi| MUHOMAH, Teresia Aluoch| Sonoyama, Kei| Nishino, Naoki|
Abstract Secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) is predominant antibody secreted into the gut relating to maintain gut homeostasis. In the present study, we focused on the SIgA coating of gut bacteria as a mucosal immune response affecting the gut bacteria following a high-fat diet (HFD). This study newly showed that the level of SIgA coating of gut bacteria was significantly decreased in HFD-fed mice than normal-fat diet (NFD)-fed mice. Furthermore, we found that the relative abundances of gut bacteria were significantly negatively or positively correlated with the level of SIgA coating of gut bacteria in NFD-fed and HFD-fed mice. Our observations suggest that a decrease in the level of SIgA coating of the gut bacteria through a HFD might relate to HFD-induced changes in bacterial composition.

Title Alternative The mammalian pigmentary system - a model experimental system for exploring the functional divergence of a differentiated cell type
FullText URL poalas_035_002_008.pdf
Author Yamamoto, Hiroaki|
Abstract There are two cell lineages of mammalian melanin pigment cells, one that leads to retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells in the eye from the optic cup and the other leading to melanocytes from vertebrate-specific neural crest cells. Melanocyte precursors have high mobility and migrate and settle into various tissues and organs, including the skin, choroid, inner ear, heart, brain, adipose tissue, lung, etc. It is well known that RPE cells are essential for visual acuity and that melanocytes in the skin provide protection against UV-damage. So, what is the function of extracutaneous melanocytes that are distributed elsewhere in the body where only very small amounts of light illuminate their existence? Here I would like to briefly introduce our research history and then discuss the important roles of melanocytes in the inner ear that are indispensable for hearing ability and those in the choroid where they seem to contribute to maintaining the structures of their habitats.
