Determination of the dynamics of feline follicle metabolism
The metabolism of feline follicles has been largely overlooked in reproductive science. The primary objective of this study was to determine differences in metabolite profiles and glucose carbon fluxes in feline follicles ...
DETERMINATION OF OPTIMAL DCAD CONCENTRATION AND RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF POTASSIUM VERSUS SODIUM CATION SUPPLEMENTATION FOR MAXIMAL FEED EFFICIENCY IN LACTATING DAIRY COWS
The objective was to determine the optimal dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) required to maximize 3.5% fat-corrected milk (FCM) and feed efficiency (FE; FCM per dry matter intake (DMI)) in lactating dairy cows. When ...
Role of volatile fatty acids in nitrogen utilization and urea nitrogen recycling in ruminants
Mechanistic knowledge of urea-N partitioning has the potential to reveal targets that can be manipulated to improve protein efficiency of ruminants, and hence, reduce N excretion to the environment. The objective of this ...
Identification and characterization of long intergenic noncoding RNAs associated with Marek's disease resistance in chicken
Marek's disease (MD) is a highly contagious lymphomatous disease of chicken caused by Marek's disease virus (MDV). MDV has steadily evolved toward increased resistance and virulence over the past decades. A promising ...
Investigation of chicken embryo metabolism and substrate utilization during later development
The objective of this research was to determine metabolic adaptations and substrate utilization during chicken embryo development and to determine the influence of breeder age and egg size on embryonic growth and metabolism ...
The effect of freezing rate on striped bass (Morone saxatilis) spermatozoa
Several studies have attempted to determine the optimal freezing rate for the cryopreservation of striped bass spermatozoa. In this study, the effects of freezing rate (-10, -15, -20 and -40<super>o</super>C/min) on sperm ...
