The immunosuppressive effect of portal venous blood transfusions in organ transplantation has been well established and may be mediated by increased Kupffer cell production of the immunosuppressive arachidonic acid metabolite prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). In this study, butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid known to enhance gene transcription, is hypothesized to(More)
Some of the factors influencing the reproductive success of the bluegill sunfish, Lepomis macrochirus Rafinesque, in an Ohio farm poind were investigated during three summers from 1965 to 1967. The availability of nesting substrate was the major variable affecting spawning success in the pond. Fine gravel and sand substrates produced the most fry. Those of(More)
Several agronomic benefits can result from fall seeding of canola (Brassica spp.), but extensive research data are lacking on the potential impact of this practice on infestations of root maggots (Delia spp.) (Diptera: Anthomyiidae), which are major pests of the crop in western Canada. Field experiments making up 13 location by year combinations were(More)
Routine monitoring of above ground biomass within purpose-grown willow biomass energy production systems is important for timing harvest and other operations to maximize profit and increase plantation productivity. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of an elegant nondestructive mensurative technique for providing reliable estimates of(More)
