The degree of protein enrichment of sweet potato residue by different amylolytic moulds in solid-state cultivation was much greater than that obtained using amylolytic yeasts. The optimum initial moisture content for protein enrichment was about 65% (w/w). Adding nitrogen sources to the culture twice (at the start of the incubation and after 24 h)(More)
Over-expression of aldose reductase (AR) has been observed in many cancer cells. To clarify the role of AR in tumor cells, we investigated the pathways mediating expression of the AR gene induced by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA), a potent tumor promoter. In A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cells, TPA elicited a dose- and time-dependent increase(More)
Interaction of calcium with casein submicelles was investigated in CaCl2 and calcium phosphate buffers and with synthetic milk salt solutions using the technique of analytical affinity chromatography. Micelles that had been prepared by size exclusion chromatography with glycerolpropyl controlled-pore glass from fresh raw skim milk that had never been(More)
Field emission (FE) properties of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) were investigated inside a field emissionscanning electron microscopy. The individual SWCNT turned on a voltage of 23V defined to produce a current of 10 pA, and was saturated at around 43V and 880 nA. The FE characteristic of individual SWCNT also followed a conventional(More)
In motion compensated frame interpolation (MCFI), an interpolated frame is produced by placing objects according to their motion estimated between two neighbouring frames. However, multiple motion vectors associated with the background (BG) and foreground (FG) objects can pass through a single location in the interpolated frame. In such motion ambiguity(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of flavor supplementation on preand post-weaning performance and behavior of piglets and sows. A total of 30 sows (Landrace×Yorkshire) and their litters were employed in this study. Sows were randomly assigned to 3 dietary treatments (10 replications per treatment). Dietary treatments included: i) CON, basal(More)
Cobb male broilers (28 d of age) previously fed same starter diet were offered a single diet (control) and isoproteic choices between 2.950 and 3.250 kcal/g diets from 29 to 50 d. The control and dietary energy choices were fed to broilers housed in one of 2 ambient temperatures: 21 ± 1°C (normal temperature) and 30 ± 0.6°C (heat stress). Broilers housed at(More)
32 sows (Landrace×Yorkshire) and their litters were used to evaluate the effects of varying creep feed duration on pre-weaning, post-weaning performance of piglets and sows. Sows were randomly assigned with 1, 2 or 3+ parities into 1 of 4 treatments. Creep feeding was initiated at day 5, 10 and 15 from birth for treatment 1 (TRT1), 2 (TRT2) and (TRT3),(More)
