Plasma growth hormone and growth hormone-binding protein during development in the marsupial brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

Plasma concentrations of growth hormone (GH) were measured in the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) pouch young from 25 through to 198 days post-partum (n=71). GH concentrations were highest early in pouch life (around 100 ng/ml), and thereafter de

In vitro hepatic metabolism of cyp3a-mediated drugs quinine and midazolam in the common brush-tailed possum (trichosurus vulpecula)

This report characterizes the P450 isoenzymes involved in quinine metabolism in liver microsomes of the common brush-tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). The mean maximal velocity (V-max) for 3-hydroxyquinine formation in possum livers was 1,512 +/- 510

Identification of 5 beta -pregnane and 5 beta -androstane derivatives in adrenal venous and peripheral blood plasma of the female possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

In the possum a marked sex difference has been found in the steroids in adrenal venous plasma. Four 5 beta -pregnane and four 5 alpha ( beta ) androstane derivatives together with ten 4-ene-3-keto steroids were isolated from the adrenal venous plasma of the female and definitively identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The results confirm […]

Comparison of two methods of faecal analysis of herbivore diet

Two techniques for determining the proportions of different plant species eaten by the brush-tailed opossum (Trichosurus vulpecula) were compared. Both techniques – bacterial degradation and chemical maceration of faeces – produced similar results, and confirmed that a correction factor is needed to allow for the differential loss of cuticle of some plant foods during digestion […]
