Mifepristone (RU486), bovine corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), arginine vasopressin (VP), adrenocorticotropin (ACTH1-24), and protein kinase activators (forskolin, [FSK]; phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate [PMA]) were used in vitro to investigate their direct effect on adrenocorticosteroidogenesis. Bovine adrenocortical fasciculata/reticularis cells (2 x(More)
The objective was to use the bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) as a model to assess the risk of infectious disease transmission in the system of in vitro embryo production and transfer via somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) technology. The risks of BVDV transmission in the SCNT embryo production were previously evaluated. In that in vitro study,(More)
The increasing prevalence of drug resistant bacteria is a pandemic problem. Metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) are one of the main causes of drug resistance due to hydrolysis of β-lactam antibiotics. Thus, the development of effective inhibitors of MBLs remains urgent. The compound thiomaltol was used as a lead compound to investigate its ability to inhibit(More)
In order to elucidate whether the lamellar body content represents functional surfactant as soon as these bodies appear in lung epithelium during fetal development, lamellar bodies were isolated from lungs of Chicken at various developmental stages. Their content was analyzed and compared to extra-cellular functionnal surfactant. The results show that this(More)
The complex [Ru(bpy)2(ttma)](+) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine; ttma = 3-hydroxy-2-methyl-thiopyran-4-thionate, 1, has previously been shown to undergo an unusual C-H activation of the dithiomaltolato ligand upon outer-sphere oxidation. The reaction generated alcohol and aldehyde products 2 and 3 from C-H oxidation of the pendant methyl group. In this report, we(More)
This study compares the meat composition of the offspring from boars produced by somatic cell nuclear transfer (n=4) to that of the offspring from conventionally produced boars (n=3). In total, 89 commercial gilts were artificially inseminated and 61 progressed to term and farrowed. All of the resulting piglets were housed and raised identically under(More)
Recently, rutile nanotwins were synthesized using high temperature organic solvent methods, yielding two kinds of common high-quality rutile twinned nanocrystals, (101) and (301) twins, accompanied by minor rutile nanorods (Lu et al 2012 CrystEngComm 14 3120-4). In this report, the atomic structures of the rutile and anatase nanocrystals are directly(More)
