The purpose of this study was to determine the lactation performance of dairy cows fed dried or wet distillers grains (DG) with solubles (DDGS or WDGS) at 2 dietary concentrations. A trial using 15 cows was designed as a replicated 5 x 5 Latin square with periods of 4 wk each and data collected during wk 3 and 4 of each period. Diets, on a dry matter basis,(More)
Full-field electroretinograms were obtained in 269 normal subjects with the International Standardization Protocol endorsed by the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision and the National Retinitis Pigmentosa Foundation Inc. Log rod and cone amplitudes decreased exponentially with age in adults; amplitudes declined to one half those(More)
Currently in the dairy industry, there is a concern about the variability in the nutrient content among sources of distillers grains plus solubles (DG), but little research has evaluated the variability in metabolizable AA among sources. The ruminal degradability of crude protein (CP) in soybean meal (SBM), dried DG from 5 sources (DG1, DG2, DG3, DG4, and(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis resides within the phagocytes of its host. It ensures its continued survival through arresting the normal maturation of its phagosome, which is retained within the early endosomal system of the macrophage. Although individual bacterial components have been shown to modulate phagosome biogenesis, the mechanism(s) active in live,(More)
Infants under six months are able to discriminate native and non-native consonant contrasts equally well, but as they learn the phonological systems of their native language, this ability declines. Current explanations of this phenomenon agree that the decline in discrimination ability is linked to the formation of native-language phonemic categories. The(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral myringotomy (BMT) is a commonly performed otolaryngologic procedure in children. OBJECTIVES To examine the effects of intranasal dexmedetomidine, an α(2)-adrenoceptor agonist, on time-averaged pain scores, pain control, need for rescue analgesia, and agitation scores in children undergoing BMT. METHODS We designed a trial to enroll(More)
Caenorhabditis elegans is an androdioecious nematode with both hermaphrodites and males. Although males can potentially play an important role in avoiding inbreeding and facilitating adaptation, their existence is evolutionarily problematic because they do not directly generate offspring in the way that hermaphrodites do. This review explores how genetic,(More)
The actin bundle within each microvillus of the intestinal brush border is laterally tethered to the membrane by bridges composed of the protein complex, 110-kD-calmodulin. Previous studies have shown that avian 110-kD-calmodulin shares many properties with myosins including mechanochemical activity. In the present study, a cDNA molecule encoding 1,000(More)
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are a heterogeneous, immature myeloid cell population with the ability to suppress immune responses. MDSCs have been characterized in infections, inflammatory diseases, and solid tumors; however, their presence and role in the tumor-promoting, immune-suppressive microenvironment in hematologic malignancies remains(More)
Cattle with Johne's disease can shed live Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) in their milk, and MAP can survive under simulated commercial pasteurization conditions. In several studies conducted in the United Kingdom and Canada, MAP DNA has been detected in retail pasteurized milk samples; however, in one study in the United Kingdom viable(More)
