To study the effect of different iron levels in diet on immune function of sheep,and explore the risk of iron overdose during sheep feeding,different doses of FeSO4,including 500,1 000 and 1 500 mg/kg of iron,were added to the basic diet of sheep.After feeding 75 days,immune organs of sheep (spleen,thymus,portal lymph nodes,duodenal lymph nodes and palatine tonsil) were adopted.Organ structures and hemosiderin deposition were observed using traditional pathological methods.The distribution of hemosiderin and iron content in the above organs were measured.The results showed that proportion of splenic white pulp in spleen decreased,the number of lymphocytes reduced and its arrangement was loosed,accompanied by swelling and vacuolization after sheep were fed with excessive iron.Moreover,we found that thymus cortex became thinner,the medulla became thicker and fused,the number of thymus corpuscles decreased and the structure of thymus corpuscles was blurred.The cortical and medullary areas of portal lymph nodes and duodenal lymph nodes became thinner and blurred,the space between cortical lymphatic sinus and medullary sinus increased,and the structure of lymph nodules was blurred.The number of lymph nodules in parenchyma of palatine tonsil decreased,and post capillary venules appear congested.After feeding excessive iron,the iron content in immune organs increased,in which the iron content in spleen was the highest and that in palatine tonsil was the least.The iron content in spleen of low,medium and high iron excess group was extremely significantly higher than that of control group (P<0.01).The results showed that the tissue structure of sheep immune organs was damaged in varying degrees after sheep were fed with excessive iron,and the more iron added in fodder,the damage of tissue structure was more serious.The amount of iron accumulated in each immune organ was positively correlated with iron level added in the diet.Excessive iron intake seriously affects the immune function of sheep.Therefore,in the process of sheep feeding,it is necessary to strictly abide by the NRC (1985) feed standard of the United States,and the iron level in the diet should not exceed 500 mg/kg.

There are many microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants,such as bacteria,fungi,protozoa and archaea.Gastrointestinal microbes play an important role in the energy metabolism and central nervous system of animals.Intestinal microbes can be in direct contact with intestinal cells,producing not only metabolites that activate the endogenous central nervous system signaling mechanisms,but also independently producing or contributing to the production of many neurally active molecules.Microbial metabolites and neuroactive molecules form a complex reflex network through key pathways such as neural signaling pathways,gastrointestinal endocrine signaling pathways and immune systems.That is,gastrointestinal microorganisms and metabolites conduct signals to the central nervous system through the afferent neurons.The gastrointestinal microbes interact with the host through the main signaling pathways,affecting the body's gastrointestinal barrier,nutrient metabolism,immune response and other physiological functions and feeding behavior.The article mainly focuses on the gastrointestinal microbial species of ruminants,the "bottom-up" transmission pathway of microorganisms through the gut-brain axis,and the role of microorganisms and their metabolites in host diseases and behavior through the gut-brain axis.The possible influencing factors of gastrointestinal microbial-gut-brain axis were analyzed,and the research on the axis of ruminants is prospected in this paper.

Probiotics play an important role in the intestinal tract of healthy teleost.They not only inhibit pathogenic microorganisms,but also stimulate and enhance the intestinal mucosal immune system and play an important role in intestinal immunity.In recent years,mucosal immunity of teleost has become a hot research topic because of its diversity and unclear definition.The direct contact between teleost and aquatic environment makes the surface of the intestinal tract to various pathogens.Immunoregulation is an effective preventive measure in teleost,and probiotics can enhance the intrinsic immunocompetent cells and factors on the surface of intestinal mucosa to play a role in the pathogen.Probiotics enter fish mainly by oral administration,and intestinal tract as its main target organ produces specific immune response to fish.Therefore,the study of probiotics affecting intestinal mucosal immune system deserves attention.Compared with mammals,teleosts have more diffuse intestinal lymphatic system.The immune cells necessary for the local immune response are abundant in the intestinal mucosa,and the local immune response can be monitored in the intestinal tract of the immunized fish.In this paper,the intestinal mucosal immune system of teleost and the effects of probiotics on intestinal mucosal immunity of teleost in recent years were reviewed,and the further research on probiotics of teleost was prospected,in order to provide reference for the follow-up study on the interaction between probiotics and teleost.
