Eight beef cattle breeds, Angus (A), Blonde d' Aquitaine (BA), Charolais (C), Czech Pied (CP), Hereford (H), Limousin (L), Piemontese (P) and Simmental (S), were analysed for the following calf traits: birth weight (BW), 210and 365-day weight ( 210W, 365W) and average daily gains from birth to 210 days (ADG1), from 210 to 365 days (ADG2) and from birth to(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of supplemental lysine (Lys), methionine (Met) or both amino acids added in the form of rumen-protected (RP) tablets with copolymer coating to a diet of dairy cows on yield and composition of milk and concentration of plasma amino acids (AA). The experiment was carried out on four high-yielding(More)
Angiogenin, a member of the pancreatic-like ribonuclease family with a special biological action (RISBAses), is a basic protein that induces blood vessel formation. Another member of these special ribonucleases, bovine seminal ribonuclease (BS RNase), displays biological properties, including aspermatogenic, embryotoxic, antitumor and immunosuppressive(More)
Bovine seminal ribonuclease (BS-RNase) is a dimer in which the subunits are cross-linked by disulfide bonds between Cys31 of one subunit and Cys32 of the other. Dimeric BS-RNase is resistant to ribonuclease inhibitor (RI), a protein endogenous to mammalian cells, and is toxic to a variety of cell types. Monomeric BS-RNase (like its homolog, RNase A) is(More)
The levels of inorganic anions (NO3-, NO2-, SO(2-)4, F- and HPO(2-)4 with the following average values (mg/l) were determined isotachophoretically in 82 samples of potable water for humans and animals: 39.7 +/- 53.1 for nitrates, min. 0.0 - max. 363.3; 0.206 +/- 0.954 for nitrites, min. 0.0 - max. 7.82; 37.5 +/- 32.4 for chlorides, min. 0.0 - max. 137.9;(More)
A pattern analysis approach to the detection of auditory evoked potentials in the EEG is reported. Pattern aspects of individual post-stimulus responses have been examined first through their correlation coefficients using the suprathreshold average evoked potential as a reference pattern, and second by the ensemble distribution of phase values of Fourier(More)
Urinary iodine concentrations were determined in 672 dairy cows of 22 herds. Less than 20 micrograms per L, 20 to 50 micrograms per L, 50 to 100 micrograms per L and more than 100 micrograms per L were found in 27.5, 24.6, 16.8, and 31.3% of the cows, respectively. In terms of the ICCIDD grading, moderate iodine deficiency was recorded in 68.9% and normal(More)
The adverse effect of blood-sucking dipterous insects (gadflies, gnats, black flies, midges) was determined and checked, as exerted on the working performance of draft horses working in forests; the possibilities of protecting horses with repellents were studied at the same time. The trial was conducted under field conditions in the territory of the Broumov(More)
The 4 casein loci were evaluated as haplotypes in 2 dairy goat breeds kept in the Czech Republic. Analysis of 41 White Shorthaired (WSH) trio families and 44 Brown Shorthaired (BSH) trio families revealed 14 and 20 haplotypes, respectively. Various genomic techniques were used to type the casein loci. Twenty-two different combinations of these alleles(More)
