Investigation of spermatozoal metabolism and substrate utilization in domestic and non-domestic felids
Cryopreservation of spermatozoa is a critical aspect of assisted reproduction. However in most cases, this process causes diminished spermatozoal function and low cellular survival. The effects of cryopreservation are ...
The impact of dietary ions on rumen ion concentrations
Dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) evaluates the strong ion balance in dairy cattle diets. We performed two experiments to study the impacts of strong dietary ions (Na, K, and Cl) on the rumen environment. Our overall ...
In Vitro Study of an Orange Oil Derived Alternative to Antibiotics in the Treatment of Bovine Mastitis
Bovine mastitis is a costly disease in the U.S. dairy industry. Its major causative agent Staphylococcus aureus is often unresponsive to antibiotic therapy. Our first study examined terpeneless, cold-pressed Valencia ...
Campylobacter spp. in bulk tank milk and milk filters from US dairy farms
Campylobacter spp. are a common cause of foodborne outbreaks associated with raw or unpasteurized milk, and Campylobacter spp. have also been detected on most dairies in the US. An estimate of the prevalence of thermophilic ...
Lineage reprogramming of tumor-infiltrating cytotoxic T lymphocytes using protein stem cell transcription factors
Adoptive cell transfer therapy (ACT) is one of the most promising immunotherapies against cancer. However, this treatment regimen requires the expansion of a small population of effector cells, known as tumor infiltrating ...
