Dietary inulin affects the expression of intestinal enterocyte iron transporters, receptors and storage protein and alters the microbiota in the pig intestine
TLDR
Results indicate that dietary inulin might trigger an up regulation of genes encoding for Fe transporters in the enterocyte, and the specific mechanism for this effect remains to be elucidated. Expand
Gene flow from GM glyphosate-tolerant to conventional soybeans under field conditions in Japan.
TLDR
Thrips species and predatory Hemiptera visited the soybean flowers more frequently during the four-year period than any other common pollinators, such as bees, indicating that the possibility of out-crossing by wind is minimal. Expand
Supplemental dietary inulin of variable chain lengths alters intestinal bacterial populations in young pigs.
TLDR
The ability of dietary inulin to alter intestinal bacterial populations may partially account for its iron bioavailability-promoting effect and possibly other health benefits. Expand
Biogeography of the intestinal mucosal and lumenal microbiome in the rhesus macaque.
TLDR
Stool composition correlated highly with the colonic lumen and mucosa and moderately with the distal small intestine, and Helicobacter, Faecalibacterium and Lactobacillus levels in stool were highly predictive of their abundance at most other gut sites. Expand
Supplemental dietary inulin affects the bioavailability of iron in corn and soybean meal to young pigs.
TLDR
It is concluded that supplementing 4% inulin improved utilization of intrinsic iron in the corn and soybean meal diet by young pigs, and this benefit was associated with soluble Fe and sulfide concentrations but not pH or phytase activity in the digesta. Expand
Supplemental dietary inulin influences expression of iron and inflammation related genes in young pigs.
TLDR
All 3 types of inulin shared similar efficacy and possibly similar modes of action in improving dietary iron utilization by young pigs in a corn-soybean meal-basal diet for young pigs. Expand
Comparison of the life cycles of two sympatric estuarine polychaetes, Hediste diadroma and H. atoka (Polychaeta: Nereididae), in the Nanakita River estuary, northeastern Japan
TLDR
Differences in the life cycle, reproductive ecology, and distribution of the two polychaetes were found and it was found that H. atoka maintained a large and stable population in Gamo Lagoon, located 250m upstream from the river mouth, whereas H. diadroma was rarely found there. Expand
Determining microbial products and identifying molecular targets in the human microbiome.
TLDR
High-throughput culture-independent assays can be combined with computational approaches to identify and characterize novel and biologically interesting microbial products and discuss possible next steps to catalog and leverage the large uncharted fraction of the microbial metagenome. Expand
Equine faecal microbiota transplant: Current knowledge, proposed guidelines and future directions
TLDR
Based on evidence in man and other veterinary species, and anecdotal reports in horses, FMT may be a useful treatment for selected cases of acute and chronic diarrhoea and inflammatory bowel disease in the horse. Expand
Supplemental Escherichia coli phytase and strontium enhance bone strength of young pigs fed a phosphorus-adequate diet.
TLDR
In conclusion, supplemental phytase at 2000 U/kg of P-adequate diets enhanced bone mechanical function of weanling pigs by modulating both geometrical and chemical properties of bone. Expand
