High carotenoid maize is an ideal source of high value dietary carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin, in human and animal feed and has been proposed as a feedstock for high carotenoid egg production. A modified analytical method was demonstrated to have reliability, reproducibility, and improved run-time and separation of xanthophylls. This method(More)
BACKGROUND Potent pharmacologic inhibition of cholesteryl ester transferase protein by the investigational agent evacetrapib increases high-density lipoprotein cholesterol by 54% to 129%, reduces low-density lipoprotein cholesterol by 14% to 36%, and enhances cellular cholesterol efflux capacity. The ACCELERATE trial examines whether the addition of(More)
There has been much debate about the effect of postprandial glucose levels on diabetes outcomes and the necessity of treating postprandial hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. Current recommendations of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which have been used predominantly in the United States, present goals for fasting/preprandial and(More)
Genotyping through the pedigrees of elite soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] cultivars developed by a breeding program represents an opportunity to explore and characterize various molecular and genetic changes that are a direct result of long-term selection by soybean breeders. For soybeans bred for Ontario Canada, one such elite cultivar was OAC Bayfield,(More)
Production of high-lutein maize grain is of particular interest as a value-added feed source to produce high-lutein eggs. In this paper, it is demonstrated that heterosis for total carotenoid concentration and for the ratio of lutein to zeaxanthin (L:Z ratio), or profile type, exists infrequently in yellow dent crosses. However, yellow dent inbred maize(More)
