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)
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)
