Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the impact of the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-11 transformation event in two parental corn hybrids differing in date of maturity on beef and dairy cattle performance. Sixteen lactating Holstein dairy cows in replicated 4 x 4 Latin squares were assigned to four diets in a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement: Bt vs non-Bt(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Altered glutamatergic neurotransmission is linked to several neurological and psychiatric disorders. Metabotropic glutamate receptor 2 (mGlu₂) plays an important role on the presynaptic control of glutamate release and negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) acting on mGlu₂/₃ receptors are under assessment for their potential as(More)
We hypothesized that substituting a corn hybrid with high cell-wall content and high neutral detergent fiber (NDF) digestibility (HCW) for a hybrid with lower cell-wall content and lower NDF digestibility (LCW) would improve feed intake and milk production in lactating Holstein cows. There was a 3.6 percentage unit difference in NDF content and a 4.1(More)
AIM To evaluate the surface alterations of soft liners with or without sealer coating following abrasion with mechanical brushing. METHODS Thirty specimens were made of a methacrylate- (Coe-Soft) and a siloxane-based material (Ufi-Gel SC), and 15 received two coatings of surface sealer. The specimens were submitted to a mechanical brushing-dentifrice(More)
The metabotropic glutamate receptor 2 (mGlu2) plays an important role in the presynaptic control of glutamate release and several mGlu2 positive allosteric modulators (PAMs) have been under assessment for their potential as antipsychotics. The binding mode of mGlu2 PAMs is better characterized in functional terms while few data are available on the(More)
