Nutritional programming in Nile tilapia <i>(</i>Oreochromis<i> </i>niloticus<i>)</i>: Effect of low dietary protein on growth and the intestinal microbiome and transcriptome

PLOS ONE, 18(10).

By: C. Deck n, S. Salger n, H. Reynolds n, M. Tada n, M. Severance n, P. Ferket n, H. Egna*, M. Fatema*, S. Haque*, R. Borski n

TL;DR: Results suggest protein restriction for up to 14 days early in development leads to enhanced growth and feed efficiency with minimal effects on gut microbes or intestinal function, while Protein restriction beyond this period appears detrimental to fish growth and health as underscores by expression of disease related genes and higher mortality rates.

MeSH headings : Animal Feed; Animals; Cold Temperature; Diet / veterinary; Energy Intake / physiology; Feeding Behavior; Lysine / pharmacology; Male; Meat / standards; Turkeys / growth & development; Turkeys / physiology; Weight Gain
TL;DR: The results imply that when dietary lysine levels are adequate, dietary energy may be increased above NRC (1994) to improve feed efficiency, but some of the limiting amino acids after lYSine may beincreased in high-density diets to optimize breast meat yield. (via Semantic Scholar)

MeSH headings : Animal Nutritional Physiological Phenomena; Animals; Chick Embryo / drug effects; Chick Embryo / metabolism; Dietary Carbohydrates / pharmacology; Energy Metabolism / drug effects; Valerates / pharmacology
TL;DR: It is reasonable to assume that the elevated glycogen levels in the in ovo treatment reduce the need to produce glucose via gluconeogenesis and, therefore, contribute to less use of muscle protein and hence a greater percentage of pectoral muscle weight in theIn ovo birds.
