Adaptation of the small intestine in desert-dwelling animals: morphology, ultrastructure and electrolyte transport in the jejunum of rabbits, rats, gerbils and sand rats
Lipha will collaborate to develop pharmaceuticals for the treatment of obesity based on the gene discoveries from the Israeli sand rat
Fat sand rats
live in undergound burrows in the deserts of Israel and other countries in the Middle East.
The genotypes in group F were isolated from 6 animal species: large Egyptian gerbils, fat-tailed gerbils, fat sand rats
(Psammomys obesus), lesser Egyptian jerboas, greater Egyptian jerboas, and bushy-tailed jirds; those in genogroup G were isolated from a bushy-tailed jird and a large Egyptian gerbil (Figure).
Quantitative histologic studies of the gonads of sand rats
(Psammomys obesus) during the development of diabetes mellitus.
Concurrently, in a series of animal models, normal, streptozotocin (STZ) diabetic and sand rats
were used in the inverted sac model to determine the mechanism through which OLE affected starch digestion and absorption.
