Effect of microbial inoculants on the nutritive value of corn silage for lactating dairy cows.
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of microbial inoculation on the composition and nutritive value of corn silage for lactating cows. In Experiment 1, forage was untreated orExpand

Methane, a gas produced by enteric bacteria, slows intestinal transit and augments small intestinal contractile activity.
The presence of methane on lactulose breath test among irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) subjects is highly associated with the constipation-predominant form. Therefore, we set out to determine whetherExpand

Microbial populations, fermentation end-products, and aerobic stability of corn silage treated with ammonia or a propionic acid-based preservative.
We studied the effects of ammonia treatment on microbial populations during the fermentation of corn silage. We also compared the effects of ammonia to a preservative containing buffered propionicExpand

Slowing of intestinal transit by fat or peptide YY depends on beta-adrenergic pathway.
Although the enteric reflex pathway triggered by volume distension is known to depend on an adrenergic nerve, it is not known whether the slowing of intestinal transit by fat or peptide YY (PYY) alsoExpand

Slowing intestinal transit by PYY depends on serotonergic and opioid pathways.
Slowing of intestinal transit by fat is abolished by immunoneutralization of peptide YY (PYY), demonstrating a key role for this gut peptide. How PYY slows intestinal transit is not known. We testedExpand

Growth of Listeria monocytogenes and Clostridium sporogenes in cottage cheese in modified atmosphere packaging.
Low fat cottage cheese (pH 5.14) was inoculated with three strains of Listeria monocytogenes, serotypes 1a and 4b, an isolate from a dairy processing plant, and Clostridium sporogenes ATCC 3584. TheExpand

Influences of adding easily degradable organic waste on the minimization and humification of organic matter during straw composting
To find a better composting process with low greenhouse gas emission and high humus production, the effect of adding kitchen waste on reduction and humification of organic matter during strawExpand

Abstract  The ileal brake is a neural reflex that slows proximal small bowel transit when fat enters the distal small bowel. In rats, ondansetron, a 5‐hydroxytryptamine‐3 (5‐HT3)‐receptor antagonist,Expand

Combined effects of carbon dioxide addition and barrier films on microbial and sensory changes in pasteurized milk.
The growth of psychrotrophic microorganisms is an important factor in the deterioration of refrigerated pasteurized milk. Dissolved CO2 inhibits certain spoilage microorganisms in foods provided thatExpand
