Omics of dietary GAA

The development and characteristics of muscle fibers in broilers are critical determinants that influence their growth performance, as well as serve as essential prerequisites for the production of high-quality chicken meat. Guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) is a crucial endogenous substance in animal creatine synthesis, and its utilization as a feed additive has been demonstrated the capabilities […]

GAA promotes muscle development

The aim of this study was to explore the molecular mechanisms through which different levels of GAA affect chicken muscle development by influencing miRNA expression, to lay a theoretical foundation for the identification of key functional small RNAs related to poultry muscle development, and to provide new insights into the regulatory mechanisms of GAA on […]

Herbal mixture vs. GAA supplementation

Phytogenic feed additives are renowned for their growth promotion, gut health enhancement, and disease prevention properties, which is important factors for sustaining prolonged poultry rearing. The study aimed to evaluate the effect of herbal mixture (mixture of ginseng and artichoke) or guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) on growth performance, cecal microbiota, excretal gas emission, blood profile, and […]

GAA affects liver and breast muscle fat deposition

Exogenous supplementation of guanidinoacetic acid can mechanistically regulate the energy distribution in muscle cells. This study aimed to investigate the effects of guanidinoacetic acid supplementation on liver and breast muscle fat deposition, lipid levels, and lipid metabolism-related gene expression in ducks. We randomly divided 480 42 days-old female Jiaji ducks into four groups with six […]

GAA intake in angus steers

This study investigated the effects of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) supplementation on the growth performance, rumen fermentation, blood indices, nutrient digestion, and nitrogen metabolism of Angus steers. In a 130-day feeding experiment, steers receiving GAA at a conventional dose (0.8 g/kg) and a high dose (1.6 g/kg) exhibited significantly higher average daily weight gain and improved […]

GAA in low metabolizable energy diet

This study was aimed to explore the elevating energy utilization efficiency mechanism for the potentially ameliorative effect of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) addition on growth performance of broilers fed a low metabolizable energy (LME) diet. A total of 576 day-old broilers were randomly allocated to one of the 6 treatments: a basal diet (normal ME, positive […]

Xylanase and GAA in restoring energy deficit

The study aimed to examine the distinct impacts of incorporating xylanase (Xyl), emulsifier (EM), and guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) as dietary supplements in low metabolisable energy (ME) diets on performance, energy and protein efficiency ratios, oxidative biomarkers, gene expression, and gut morphology. Seven hundred one-day-old (Ross 308) male-broilers were assigned to 5 dietary treatments with 5 […]

GAA, rumen fermentation and microflora

The fermentation substrate was supplemented with 0% guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) (control group, CON), 0.2% GAA (GAA02), 0.4% GAA (GAA04), 0.6% GAA (GAA06) and 0.8% GAA (GAA08) for 48 h of in vitro fermentation. Gas production was recorded at 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36 and 48 hours of fermentation. The gas was collected, and […]

GAA improved meat quality

Meat quality is increasingly being paid more attention by customers and enterprises. However, the modern pursuit of pork production has led to a decline in pork quality. Muscle fibre type is one of the important factors affecting meat quality that can be used as a key control point. This study set out to assess the effects […]

GAA affects egg quality

A study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) in diets containing varying levels of corn replacement with low-tannin sorghum (LTS) for laying hens in the later stage of production. In a 12-week study, a total of 288 laying hens at 52 weeks of age were divided into 6 treatment groups. Each […]
