GLUT12 is a new member of facilitative glucose transporters. It was originally cloned from a human breast cancer cell line and its expression has been detected in rat mammary gland. Glucose transport across the plasma membrane of mammary epithelial cells is a rate-limiting factor in milk production. To examine GLUT12's expression and facilitate the study of(More)
The effects of the primary biologically active conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) isomers (cis-9, trans-11 and trans-10, cis-12; 15-150microM) on growth and survival of the bovine mammary cell-line, Mac-T, were evaluated using cell enumeration and TUNEL assay. Previous studies have shown that high concentrations of CLA induced severe milk fat depression and(More)
The mammary gland undergoes dramatic functional and metabolic changes during the transition from late pregnancy to lactation. To better understand the molecular events underlying these changes, we analyzed expression profiles of approximately 23,000 gene transcripts in bovine mammary tissue about day 5 before parturition and day 10 after parturition. At the(More)
