    ABSTRACT: In the present investigation, 121 renal samples were examined for various pathological abnormalities (based on gross morphological alterations) irrespective of age, sex and breeds in north-west Rajasthan. These samples were further processed for detailed histopathological studies. Various pathological conditions examined were as follows: congestion 11.57%, haemorrhage 9.91%, hydronephrosis 3.3%, acute glomerulonephritis 4.95%, sub-acute glomerulonephritis 7.43%, chronic glomerulonephritis 5.78%, diffuse interstitial nephritis 21.48%, focal interstitial nephritis 10.74%, renal cyst 3.3%, hyaline degeneration 2.47%, renal amyloidosis 4.95%, tubular nephrosis 4.13%, pyelonephritis 7.43%, haemosiderosis 0.82% and renal toxicity 1.65%.

    ABSTRACT: Present investigation was carried out for occurrence and pathological study of coccidiosis in camels. One hundred seventy two samples of intestine were collected from western Rajasthan irrespective of age, breed and sex during September 2013 to January 2014. Out of these, 103 samples with clear gross lesion, were further subjected to investigation. Gross lesions were hyperaemia and patchy haemorrhages were found in mucosa of intestine. Tissue samples were taken from the intestinal tracts and then fixed in 10% buffered formalin. They were mechanically processed and embedded in paraffin. Sections of 5 urn thickness were cut with help of hand operated microtome and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Coccidiosis was recorded in 8.74% cases. Microscopic examination revealed eosinophilic enteritis and existence of developmental stages of the parasite such as giant schizonts, microgamont, macrogametocytes, and unsporulatd oocysts in the lacteals of lamina propria and in the epithelium of Lieberkuhn glands. Coccidial infection is prevalent in camels in the western Rajasthan.

    ABSTRACT: The study was conducted on 61 clinical cases of diverse wounds of head and neck region in camels on the basis of their etiology. Highest occurrence was recorded for lacerated nostril (16.40%) followed by lacerated wound of eyelid (13.11%), penetrating wounds at forehead (11.48%), maggot wounds at nostril (11.48%), ulcerative wounds at nostril (9.84%), soft palate injury (8.20%), submandibular abscess (8.20%), penetrating wound at eyeball (6.56%), maggot wound at eye (3.28%), penetrating wound at buccal cavity (1.22%), firing wound at neck (1.22%), supraorbito-buccal fistula (1.64%), conjunctivitis (1.64%), keratorrhexis (1.64%) and lacerated wound at gingiva and lower lip (1.64%). In animals of present study, the early clinical healing was observed in cases where planned surgery was done, especially in cases of penetrating wound of soft palate, buccal cavity, gingiva, lower lip, eyeball, cornea, lacerated nostrils, and eyelids. Careful clinical judgment, early surgical management with gentle handling of tissue, aqua therapy or thorough wound irrigation, effective topical medication and sufficient rest brought quick and better recovery in clinical wounds in the camels.

    ABSTRACT: The study included genetic and demographic bottleneck analysis of Malvi camel breeds by microsatellite markers using 29 loci. The genetic diversity of a population of Malvi camel was evaluated. Multilocus genotype data on 29 microsatellites were generated on 138 Malvi camels. A total of 240 alleles were observed. The mean observed heterozygosity in camel population for all the 29 loci was found to be 0.6041 ± 0.3256 while the mean expected heterozygosity was 0.5978 ± 0.1983. The statistical values for within locus k-test obtained for the Malvi camel was 18 loci with negative values which signifies population expansion. The inter locus g-test revealed a value of 2.3557. This test also revealed that Malvi camel population has undergone population expansion. Three tests viz; Sign test (Non-parametric), Standardised Differences test (Parametric), Wilcoxon test and Qualitative graphical method based on the allele frequency spectra reflects that the population had not undergone bottleneck.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to identify the high-affinity melatonin-receptor subtypes expressed in pineal of camel. To achieve this, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), sequencing and immunohistochemistry were used. By using RT-PCR, mRNA of melatonin receptors MT1/MT2 were detected in the pineal of bactrian camel. The highest identity was 87.2% and 97.6%, respectivly for MT1 and MT2 compatively with white yak. The pridict protein of the deduce amino acid sequence showed a tendency towards forming the 7-TM motif profile of G-protein. The immunohistochemistry studies showed that melatonin receptors are expressed in pinealocytes and glial cells of pineal. Overall, these results showed that melatonin receptors are expressed in the bactrian camel pinealocytes, and melatonin, possible as intracrine or autocrine, can influence pinealocytes and pineal physiological function.

    ABSTRACT: The C1 compartment of the camels is the most investigated part of the GIT being rich in microbial suspension. The C1 compartment fluid of single humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) was cultured and three pure cultures showing similar colony morphology were isolated and subjected to biochemical and molecular characterisation. Based on the nucleotide homology and phylogenetic analysis, the cultures showed similarity for Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain WJQ No. 1, Pseudomonas nitrorcducens strain HP2 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain DKH-3 on BLAST which were submitted to the NCBI gene portal having accession number: KJ789927, KJ789925, KJ789926, respectively. The study suggests that Pseudomonas do exists in the foregut of camel as seen in other ruminants.

    ABSTRACT: This study was performed in order to investigate the haematological and biochemical profiles in the growing dromedary camel calves during the first month of age. For this reason, twelve term camel calves were enrolled. Five blood samples were collected from each calf; within 12h of birth and at 1, 2, 3 and 4 wk of age. A complete blood count was carried out. Serum samples were used to determine the concentrations of total protein, albumin, globulin, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. The serum activity of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), γ-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) were also measured. Leukocyte count was higher at birth, then decreased at wk 1-2 after birth then increased at wk 2-4. On the contrary, lymphocyte count was low at birth and then increased during the whole experimental period. Red blood cells showed high levels during the first 12h after birth, a significant decrease at wk 3 and wk 4 of life. Similar results were recorded for haemoglobin and haematocrit values. The total protein concentrations did not differ significantly among all the tested time-points. The albumin concentration was lowest at birth then increased significantly at all other points. Globulin concentration was highest at parturition then decreased significantly at all other tested points. The AST activity was lowest at parturition then increased significantly at all other points. On the contrary, the GGT and ALP serum activity was highest at parturition then decreased significantly at all other points. Calcium concentrations did not differ significantly among all the tested points. Phosphorus concentration was lowest at birth then increased significantly from this point onward. Magnesium concentration was lowest at birth and at 1 wk of age, and then increased significantly other points. Data in this study can be used as a reference for dromedary camel calves during the first month of age for a more precise interpretation of haematology and biochemical tests.
