The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of reducing dietary phosphorus (P) on the frame size, udder traits, blood parameters and nutrient digestibility coefficient in 8- to 10-month-old Holstein heifers. Forty-five heifers were divided into 15 blocks according to the mo of age and were randomly assigned one of three dietary treatments:(More)
Bumb and Hoede have shown that a cooperative game can be split into two games, the reward game and the fine game, by considering the sign of quantities c v S in the c-diagram of the game. One can then define a solution x for the original game as x = x r − x f , where x r is a solution for the reward game and x f is a solution for the fine game. Due to the(More)
Twelve multiparous Holstein dairy cows in mid-lactation were selected for a replicated 4×4 Latin square design with a 2 ×2 factorial arrangement to investigate the effects of corn and soybean meal (SBM) types on rumen fermentation, N metabolism and lactation performance in dairy cows. Two types of corn (dry ground [DGC] and steam-flaked corn [SFC]) and two(More)
Arsenic (As) contamination of rice grains affects millions of people worldwide. In this study, we found that sulfur application (20As+120S) decreased As concentration in rice grains by 44 % compared to grains without sulfur application (20As+0S). Importantly, sulfur application decreased arsenate [As(V)] and arsenite [As(III)] concentration in rice grains(More)
Intrauterine transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV) is one of the main reasons for the failure of vaccination and plays an important role in areas with high HBV prevalence. In the present study, the quasispecies isolated from eight pairs of HBsAg-positive mothers and their neonates, who were infected with HBV by intrauterine transmission, were selected as(More)
