  • Invastigation of 16S rRNA, mecA and nuc genes in coagulase-positive and
           negative Staphylococci by Real-Time PCR

    • Authors: Abdulbaki AKSAKAL; Şükrü ÖNALAN, Şeyda Şilan OKALİN
      Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive, round-shaped bacterium that is a member of the Firmicutes. It is often positive for catalase and nitrate reduction. Pathogenic strains often promote infections by producing virulence factors such as potent protein toxins, and the expression of a cell-surface protein that binds and inactivates antibodies. Sepsis-related to methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) has significant morbidity and high mortality rates (15-30%). The methicillin resistance for S. aureus is coded with the mecA gene, while the methicillin sensitivity is coded with the nuc gene, and they are chromosomal. Similarly, it is coded with the coagulase gene for S. aureus (Coa). In this study, the 16S rRNA gene identification by Real-Time PCR was investigated in forty S. aureus isolates, which were cultured at different times in terms of MIC and SIR tests. The isolates used in the study were determined at the gene level in terms of their differences in methicillin resistance gene (MecA), methicillin susceptibility gene (Nuc), coagulase gene (Coa) and in terms of intra-species differences were examined. As a result of the study, Staphylococcus spp. yielded positive results with 16S rRNA gene-specific primers in all isolates. Real-Time PCR analysis of the isolates with SYBRGreen-based PCR analysis was performed with 16S rRNA gene-specific primers, and the samples were confirmed to be Staphylococcus. Analysis at the family level was followed by Coa, Nuc, and MecA gene Real-Time PCR results, and it was found that, in terms of Coa and Nuc genes, 19 isolates were positive and 21 isolates were negative. In terms of MecA gene, 16 isolates were positive according to the positive sigmoidal curves and to the single peak melting values, whereas 24 isolates were found to be negative. It was thought that this study will benefit the community by contributing to the rapid and effective diagnosis and treatment of infections caused by coagulase positive and negative Staphylococci.

  • A Macroanatomical Study on Coronary Veins in Southern Karaman Sheep

    • Authors: Hülya KARA; Zekeriya ÖZÜDOĞRU
      Abstract: Objective: This study aimed to reveal the coronary veins and their branches that provide venous drainage of the heart in Southern Karaman sheep. Material-Method: Eight Southern Karaman sheep’s heart tissues were used in the study. Latex injection techniques were used to determine the coronary veins and their branches providing venous drainage of the heart.Result: In the study, vena cordis magna, vena cordis media, and vv. cordis dextra was observed as venous drainage providing vessels. The vena cordis magna begins in the lower third of the sulcus interventricularis paraconalis, called vena interventricularis paraconalis. This vein reaches the sulcus coronarius and continues as vena circumflexus sinister. Vena cordis media was named as vena interventricularis subsinosus in sulcus interventricularis subsinosus. The vv. cordis dextra was responsible for the venous drainage of the facies atrialis of the heart. Conclusion: In the evaluation of the study findings, it was determined that the coronary veins and their branches of Southern Karaman were mainly similar to other sheep breeds in the literature. Still, there are some anatomical differences, such as the existence of semicircumflexa dextri.

  • A Case of Penile Urethral Diverticulum in a Male Crossbreed Kid

    • Authors: Ali BELGE; Rahime YAYGINGÜL, Onur Özgün DERİNCEGÖZ
      Abstract: A 19-day-old, male crossbreed kid with complications of difficulty in urination was referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Aydin Adnan Menderes University. A purple thin-walled, fluid-filled structure was noticed on the ventral midline and was associated with the prepuce. The cystic structure was sharply incised, and the incision was extended from the most cranial to the most caudal extent of the dilatation. Penil urethral diverticuloctomy was performed by the guidance of the urethral catheter. Postoperative attempts at urination resulted in free-flowing streams, and the kid did not have strangury. Sutures and urethral catheter were removed 10 days after surgery.

  • Immunohistochemical Detection of Pro-Inflammatory and Anti-Inflammatory
           Interleukins in the Lungs of Sheep with Jaagsiekte

    • Authors: Emin KARAKURT; Enver BEYTUT, Serpil DAĞ, Hilmi NUHOĞLU, Ayfer YILDIZ, Emre KURTBAŞ
      Abstract: Objective: In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the levels of interleukins such as IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-12β in Jaagsiekte sheep by immunohistochemical methods. In this way, it will be revealed whether interleukins are effective in the progression of Jaagsiekte and how useful they are in the diagnosis of the disease. Material-Method: The material of current study consisted of lung tissues of 26 sheep (Control, n=6 and Jaagsiekte, n=20) brought to Department of Pathology for routine histopathological diagnosis. Tissue samples taken were fixed in 10% buffered formaldehyde solution. 5 µm-thick sections were taken from the paraffin blocks prepared after routine tissue follow-up procedures. Hematoxylin & Eosin staining was applied to the sections in order to detect histopathological changes. Sections were examined and photographed under a light microscope. The routine streptavidin–biotin peroxidase complex method was used. Results: In sheep with Jaagsiekte, tumoral foci with large and small acinar or papillary growths were observed in the alveolar and bronchiole lumens. The control group was negative for IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-12β immunoreactivity. IL 1β-6-10 and 12β levels were dramatically increased in the Jaagsiekte group compared to the control group. Conclusion: It was determined that interleukins were produced from tumoral cells and tumor microenvironment elements, and these interleukins showed pro-inflammatory effects, except for IL-10. Data from the current study show that interleukins are very useful markers for the diagnosis of Jaagsiekte.

  • Some Macromineral and Trace Mineral Levels in Milk of Different Dog Breeds

    • Authors: İnci SÖĞÜTLÜ; Nizamettin GÜNBATAR, Handan MERT, Mustafa CELLAT, Nihat MERT
      Abstract: Objective: In this study, it was planned to examine the mineral levels in the milk of different breed dogs during the lactation period. Calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, copper, zinc, manganese and iron concentrations were analyzed in dog milk throughout the lactation period.Materials and methods: In this research 6 Labradors, 6 German Shepherds, 6 Pointers, 5 Turkish Tazis, 5 Setters, 7 Malinois, and 5 Golden Retrievers (a total 40 dogs) of 3 to 4 years age were used as research materials, all of which were under same management and feeding conditions. All dogs were on diets appropriate for gestation and lactation periods. Adequate milk volume could be collected 2-3 weeks after parturition, and there were no known medical problems. Each day's samples were kept capped and refrigerated after being collected. The concentrations of calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, copper, zinc, manganese and iron, were analyzed by using Varian Brand 30/40 model AAS device. Results: The Ca, K, Na, Zn, Mn and Fe levels of milk samples from different dog breeds were found to have no significant difference . The highest Mg level was determined in Pointer breed milk samples, and the lowest was determined in Setter milk samples. The highest Cu levels amongst the inspected races were in Labrador milk samples, whereas the lowest levels were determined in Setter breeds. Conclusion:This data shows that most of the analyzed milk content of different breeds of dogs did not change significantly during the same lactation period, and any present difference could be taken into account when evaluating breeding studies.
