POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS OF DIETARY CATION-ANION DIFFERENCE AND MONENSIN WITH RESPECT TO FEED EFFICIENCY IN LACTATING DAIRY CATTLE
The ionophore monensin improves feed efficiency (FE) by increasing sodium uptake in rumen bacteria, which alters rumen fermentation. Dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) represents the balance between the dietary strong ...
The Effect of Sialic Acid on the Success of Poultry Spermatozoa Cryopreservation
Avian semen cryopreservation is an invaluable reproductive strategy for conserving desirable genetic traits for commercial poultry production and endangered species conservation. Here we provide the effects of including ...
The role of interleukin-12 for mTOR regulation of memory CTLs
A major goal of vaccines is to induce functional immune memory, and efforts to improve the efficacy of vaccines targeting memory CTLs have revealed an important immunoregulatory role of rapamycin, a specific mTOR inhibitor. ...
A COMPARISON OF PROGESTERONE RECEPTOR GENE EXPRESSION IN THE OLFACTORY EPITHELIUM OF REPRODUCTIVE AND NON-REPRODUCTIVE FATHEAD MINNOWS, PIMEPHALES PROMELAS
Fish have a specialized organ called the olfactory epithelium that enables them to detect chemical cues in water. Among these cues are progestogens excreted by females that function as pheromones and stimulate male ...
CHARACTERIZATION, ENRICHMENT, AND IN VITRO CULTURE OF SPERMATOGONIAL STEM CELLS IN THE DOMESTIC CAT: A MODEL FOR RARE AND ENDANGERED FELIDS
Spermatogenesis is a highly prolific process in which millions of spermatozoa are produced daily. Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs), the adult stem cell population of the testis, sustain this process by providing a constant ...
