Identical amyloid precursor proteins in two breeds of chickens which differ in susceptibility to develop amyloid arthropathy

, : Identical amyloid precursor proteins in two breeds of chickens which differ in susceptibility to develop amyloid arthropathy. Amyloid 8(1): 41-51

Chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) can suffer from AA amyloidosis featuring the joints as major targets of amyloid accumulation. Analysis of post-mortem recordings from commercial chickens revealed that amyloid arthropathy frequently occurred in brown layer chickens, but never in white layers. The suspected higher susceptibility of brown layers was confirmed experimentally by inducing amyloidosis with an arthropathic and amyloidogenic strain of E. faecalis.
