Furthermore, the results showed stimulatory effect of the [alpha] - galactosides on height of the villi, surface area and crypt depth in all studied segments of the intestine in the in ovo experimental group (P [?

Searching methods that stimulating the rate of development of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small intestine, [alpha] - galactosides became the subject of concern, which is ubiquitously occurring in compounds of plant seeds.
24,35) Galectin-3 has a particular molecular region that has an affinity for the sugar galactose and its bonds to adjacent molecules, which are called galactoside bonds.
D-chiro-Inositol and its galactosides (fagopyritols) have potential medicinal importance in lowering symptoms of NIDDM (Lamer et al.
For instance, alterations in cell wall assembly or remodeling through hydrolysis of galactosides and galactans in the ceil wall, pre-stages certain developmental events, such as the onset of fruit ripening and the initiation of fiber bundles in flax.
Accumulation of raffinose, stachyose, and the cyclitol galactosides begins when axis and cotyledon fresh weights approach maximum and continues through maximum dry matter accumulation and into seed desiccation in planta (Obendorf et al.
The major explant feeding experiment was designed to quantify the accumulation of cyclitol galactosides in mature, dry seeds after feeding solutions containing free cyclitol substrates to soybean explants.
The galactosides introduced were derived as a result of the process of extraction of the residue after debitering of bitter lupin seeds (Gulewicz et al.
Drawing on the present research, one can formulate a hypothesis that the injection in ovo of a- galactosides derived from the debitering process of bitter lupin seeds affects the rate of the resorption of the content of the yolk sac, which can lead to ensuring the optimal amount of energy for chicks which have to deal with the new environmental conditions.
For corn-soybean meal based feed that are most widely used in Americas and Asian countries, types of NSPs that interfere energy digestibility are galactosides, mannosides, soybean oligosaccharides (raffinose, stachyose, and verbascose).
