Early weaning of calves to a high concentrate diet results in greater fat deposition and suggests early postnatal metabolic imprinting events may be exploited as a management tool to improve cattle value. Our objective was to implement a short, high energy dietary intervention before a typical grazing period to manipulate intramuscular fat deposition in(More)
Classification of farm animal behavior is based on oral or written descriptions of the activity in which the animal is engaged. The quantification of animal behavior for research requires that individuals recognize and code the behavior of the animal under study. The classification of these behaviors can be subjective and may differ among observers.(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are central players in the innate immune system in response to a wide range of pathogen infection. Among various TLRs, TLR4 plays a key role in recognition of bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS). In the present study, we identified and characterized a novel TLR4 homologue (maTLR4b) in blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala)(More)
Lung cancer is still the most concerned disease around the world. Lung nodule generates in the pulmonary parenchyma which indicates the latent risk of lung cancer. Computer-aided pulmonary nodules detection system is necessary, which can reduce diagnosis time and decrease mortality of patients. In this study, we have proposed a new computer aided diagnosis(More)

In addition, significantly greater improvement was observed in patient-reported outcomes. Conclusions: In summary, local anaesthetics can prolong IELT and improve ejaculatory(More)
Calcium oxalate stones account for >80% of urinary stones, however the mechanisms underlying their formation remains to be elucidated. Hyperoxaluria serves an important role in the pathophysiological process of stone formation. In the present study, differences in the miRNA expression profiles between experimental hyperoxaluric rats and normal rats were(More)

In addition, the level of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide(More)
High-efficiency lung nodule detection dramatically contributes to the risk assessment of lung cancer. It is a significant and challenging task to quickly locate the exact positions of lung nodules. Extensive work has been done by researchers around this domain for approximately two decades. However, previous computer aided detection (CADe) schemes are(More)
Millions of people around the world suffer from varying degrees of vision loss (including complete blindness) because of retinal degenerative diseases. Artificial retinal prosthesis, which is usually based on electrical neurostimulation, is the most advanced technology for different types of retinal degeneration. However, this technology involves placing a(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of early weaning followed by a period of high-grain feeding on plasma acetate kinetics and signaling protein phosphorylation in LM tissue of growing steers. We hypothesized that early grain feeding would result in altered cell signaling and acetate use to support observed improvements in carcass gain(More)
