Supplemental dietary inulin of variable chain lengths alters intestinal bacterial populations in young pigs.
Previously, we showed that supplementation of diets with short-chain inulin (P95), long-chain inulin (HP), and a 50:50 mixture of both (Synergy 1) improved body iron status and altered expression ofExpand

Gene flow from GM glyphosate-tolerant to conventional soybeans under field conditions in Japan.
Natural out-crossing rates were evaluated for conventional soybeans (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) cultivated adjacent to genetically modified (GM) glyphosate-tolerant soybeans under field conditionsExpand

Supplemental dietary inulin affects the bioavailability of iron in corn and soybean meal to young pigs.
Iron deficiency represents one of the most common global nutritional disorders in humans. Our objective was to determine whether and how supplemental inulin improved utilization of iron intrinsicallyExpand

Supplemental dietary inulin influences expression of iron and inflammation related genes in young pigs.
We have previously shown improved hemoglobin (Hb) repletion efficiency by supplementing a 50:50 mixture of short (P95) and long-chain (HP) inulin (Synergy 1, BENEO-Orafti) into a corn-soybeanExpand

Supplemental Escherichia coli phytase and strontium enhance bone strength of young pigs fed a phosphorus-adequate diet.
Young pigs represent an excellent model of youth to assess potentials of dietary factors for improving bone structure and function. We conducted 2 experiments to determine whether adding microbialExpand

Cecum is the major degradation site of ingested inulin in young pigs.
Two groups have reported >90% of inulin digestion occurs before the cecum in pigs and argued against pigs as a proper animal model for humans in this regard. Two experiments were conducted withExpand

FUNCTION OF THE MALE PHEROMONE OF THE LEAF-FOOTED PLANT BUG, LEPTOGLOSSUS AUSTRALIS (FABRICIUS) (HETEROPTERA : COREIDAE) AND ITS KAIROMONAL EFFECT
A function of the male pheromone of Leptoglossus australis (Fabricius) in its migration process was investigated on Ishigaki Is., the southernmost part of Japan. It was observed that the immigrationExpand
