Whey protein of the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula): isolation, characterization and changes in concentration in milk during lactation of transferrin, alpha-lactalbumin and serum albumin

Transferrin and serum albumin were purified from both whey and serum, and alpha-lactalbumin was purified from whey from the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). The N-terminal amino acid sequences for transferrin and serum albumin were identic

Tuberculosis in New Zealand – current status and control policies

The epidemiology and control of tuberculosis in New Zealand is discussed. The source of infection for cattle and deer is the wild possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). The number of tuberculin reactors increased from 3610 in 1980-81 testing season, to 6011 in the 1989-90 season. The number of cattle herds placed under movement control restriction because of […]

Researching feral horse ecology and behavior: Turning political debate into opportunity

Funding for biological research on feral horse populations is often motivated by political debate. Thus, research may start too late to contribute substantially to decisions about population monitoring and management, or to resolve public debate. Feral ho

Intestinal lactase (beta-galactosidase) and other disaccharidase activities of suckling and adult common brushtail possums, Trichosurus vulpecula (Marsupialia:Phalangeridae).

Activity of disaccharidases in the small intestine of 8 sucking Trichosurus vulpecula, 34 to 150 days old, and of 2 adult possums were investigated. Intestinal maltase, isomaltase and sucrase activities increased with age, whereas lactase activities decre

Experimental infections with the Tasmanian isolate of Trichinella pseudospiralis using a non-enzymatic recovery technique

Laboratory rats and mice, cats, brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), and 2 species of raptor (marsh harrier, Circus aeruginosus, and brown falcon, Falco berigora) were either infected orally with larvae of Trichinella pseudospiralis isolated by a non-enzymatic technique or by feeding infected muscle tissue. Muscle from a naturally infected Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) and an eastern […]

Evaluation of a bio-dynamic technique for possum pest control

Bio-dynamic materials from burnt possum pelts and testes were tested for repellent or disturbing effect on live possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) in pens and for effects on bait consumption from treated and untreated feeder stations in the field in New Zealand. The bio-dynamic materials had no effect on the pests and are not recommended as control […]
