The catabolic genes pheA and pheB, coding for the conversion of phenol to catechol and catechol to 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde, respectively, have been cloned from Bacillus stearothermophilus BR219 into Escherichia coli. Following its localization on the 11-kb B. stearothermophilus DNA insert by deletion and expression analysis, the phenol hydroxylase(More)
Arginine vasopressin (VP) is neurohypophysial hormone has been implicated in stimulating contractile activity of the male reproductive tract in the testis. Higher levels of VP decrease sperm count and motility. However, very little is known about the involvement of VP in controlling mammalian reproductive process. The goal of this study was to confirm that(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of Eucommia ulmoides leaf (EUL) supplementation on the growth performance, blood and meat quality parameters in growing and finishing pigs. Ninety gilts (L x LW x D, 20 kg initialBW) were housed 10 per pen in a front-open building with three replicate pens per treatment. Experimental treatment was(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of fermented apple diet (FAD) supplementation on the growth performance and meat quality in finishing Berkshires. The FAD was made from dropped apple mixed with rice bran and barley bran. Until 81 +/- 1 kg live weight at 133 +/- 1 days, the animals were fed a growing diet, after which(More)
Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) are adult stem cells that transmit genetic information from the parent to the next generation (progeny) in males, and thus, SSCs have used in germline-modification for generating transgenic animals. In this study, we demonstrated the feasibility of transgenic sperm production by employing an effective busulfan treatment(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of corn dried distiller's grains with solubles (DDGS) and enzyme premix (mannanase + phytase) supplementation on the growth performance, carcass and meat quality parameters in finishing pigs. Sixty hybrid pigs (L × LW × D) with initial weight of 63.92 ± 1.50 kg were used in a 3 × 2 factorial(More)
The reaction with o-phenanthroline of nonheme iron found in cell envelope fractions from Escherichia coli has been investigated. About 20% of the total nonheme iron reacts directly with o-phenanthroline. This iron appears to be in the ferric state but is reducible by protein sulfhydryl groups in the presence of the chelating agent. A further 20% of the(More)
High levels of estrogen produced by boar testes and the presence of estrogen receptors in both interstitial and tubular compartments are consistent with a direct role for estrogen in regulation of testicular cell function. This study investigated the importance of estrogen on hormone production by Leydig cells and seminiferous tubules in the developing(More)
