Hearts from 2-to-3-week-old broiler chicks that were inoculated with 2 X 10(6) sporulated oocysts/bird weighed significantly less than hearts from control chicks at 4 and 7 days postinoculation (PI). However, heart weights of infected chicks expressed as percentage of body weights were not significantly different from those of controls throughout the experiment. Infection also had no significant effect on heart protein content. Cardiac glycogen was significantly increased at 7 days PI but not at 4 days PI. Oxidation of both alpha-ketoglutaric and octanoic acids by mitochondrial preparations from hearts of infected chicks was significantly depressed at 4 days PI compared with controls; at 7 days PI, however, oxidation of octanoic acid was significantly increased, but that of alpha-ketoglutaric acid was not.
