Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of nucleotides in digestive enzymes and intestinal growth. A total 240 chicks which belongs to the broiler breed CARIBRO VISHAL were used for this study. All the chicks were divided into 6 groups 40 birds in each group. T1 served as Control. T2, T3, T4 and T5 groups were supplemented with Adenosine, Guanosine, Cytosine and Uridine @ 0.1 % respectively. Group T6 was supplemented with combination of all four nucleoside (Adenosine, Guanosine, Cytosine and Uridine) bases each at 0.1%. The bases were administered through feed for initial 14d of age. The results indicated that the plasma amylase activity was significantly higher in T6 group (P<0.05). Plasma lipase activity was significantly higher in cytosine supplemented group, followed by T6. Results of intestinal growth parameters showed that nucleoside supplemented groups had higher intestinal villi growth than control group. T6 had siginificantly higher intestinal villi growth ((P<0.05) than other groups. From this study it was concluded that chicks that supplemented with combination of nucleosides had better gut health.
