Specific RIA systems were developed and used to measure pregnancy-associated glycoprotein (PAG) concentrations during gestation and the postpartum period in Azawak Zebu cows. Twelve females were palpated per rectum and diagnosed as pregnant. Blood samples were taken at 5-10-day intervals from approximately Week 8 of gestation until Week 10 postpartum (pp). One Zebu cow (Z15) initially diagnosed as pregnant showed PAG concentrations lower than the assay sensitivity (<0.20 ng/ml) and did not calve. Another cow (ZSand) showed abnormally high PAG concentrations during gestation and was excluded from the general PAG profile. The 10 other Zebu cows exhibited a very similar PAG profile. In these animals, concentrations increased progressively from Week 8 to 35 of gestation (from 6.0 +/- 4.2 to 196.0 +/- 34.8 ng/ml), remaining relatively constant until Week 39 (210.8 +/- 74.8 ng/ml), when they increased sharply to reach their highest level (1095.6 +/- 607.2 ng/ml) at around parturition. After delivery, PAG concentrations declined significantly (P < 0.05) until Week 2 postpartum (348.4 +/- 85.6 ng/ml) and slowly until Week 10 postpartum. Our results revealed that the PAG pattern in Zebu cattle was similar to those of taurine breeds during the first two trimesters of pregnancy, but differed in the peripartum period. [less ▲]

Prolonged gestation (PG) is a complex clinical entity which occurs in bovine species. This pathology has been described in Belgian Blue cattle. PG may require termination by cesarean section. Fetuses often exhibit increased body weight, long hair and well erupted teeth. All calves die within minutes or hours after birth. From endocrinological point of view, PG is highly correlated to fetal adenohypophyseal aplasia. The aim of the present study was to investigate the usefulness of PAG RIA for diagnosis of prolonged gestation in Belgian Blue cattle. Blood samples were collected from five Blue Belgian cows having an abnormally long pregnancy length (10 to 15 months). PAG was measured by routine RIA with the use of antiserum AS497 as primary antibody. A purified bovine PAG preparation (boPAG67kDa) was used as standard (0.8 to 100 ng/mL) and for radio-iodination (125I). Cesarean section was used for termination of pregnancy of those cows exhibiting abnormal PAG concentrations. Morphological aspect and viability of fetuses were reported. Concentrations of PAG were very low (94.1 ng/mL, 50 ng/mL, 5 ng/mL, 110 ng/mL and 26 ng/mL) in the five females suffering of prolonged gestation. Fetuses issued from prolonged gestation exhibited long hair, well erupted teeth and died within few minutes after birth. In conclusion, PAG concentration is a good indicator of prolonged gestation in cattle. Concentrations are much lower than those expected in normal ongoing pregnancy (<120 ng/mL versus >1,000 ng/mL).

The pregnancy-associated glycoprotein (PAG) concentration profiles of goats that had been experimentally inoculated with either Toxoplasma gondii or Listeria monocytogenes are described. All goats were examined regularly by ultrasonography. In T. gondii-infected females (n = 5), a slow decrease of PAG was observed throughout a period of 55 to 74 d after inoculation. Afterwards, the goats either aborted (n = 4) or kidded 1 dead and 1 weak fetus (n = 1). In L. monocytogenes-infected females (n = 8), a marked decrease of PAG was observed from the day of inoculation. Abortion occurred within 9 to 11 d post inoculation (n = 7). Only 1 goat kidded a healthy fetus. [less ▲]
