Altered MicroRNA Expression in Bovine Subcutaneous and Visceral Adipose Tissues from Cattle under Different Diet
It is revealed that the miRNA may differ among adipose depots and level of fat in the diet, suggesting that miRNAs may play a role in the regulation of bovine adipogenesis. Expand

Results show that the trivalent fusion enterotoxin SLS has the potential to serve as a useful toxin-based vaccine against ETEC-induced diarrheal disease via a single immunogen. Expand
MicroRNAs in bovine adipogenesis: genomic context, expression and function
These findings improve the understanding on the behavior of miRNAs in the regulation of bovine adipogenesis and fat metabolism as it reveals that miRNA expression patterns and functions are associated with miRNA genomic location, organization and conservation. Expand
Quantitative Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization of Microbial Communities in the Rumens of Cattle Fed Different Diets
Quantitative fluorescence in situ hybridization using newly designed oligonucleotide probes was applied to identify the microbial populations in liquid and solid fractions of rumen digesta from cows fed barley silage or grass hay diets with or without flaxseed. Expand
Combined administration of ghrelin and GHRH synergistically stimulates GH release in Holstein preweaning calves.
Ghrelin and GHRH synergistically stimulated GH release in preweaning calves, but this effect was lost after weaning, andBasal plasma insulin, glucose and non-esterified fatty acid levels were reduced after weaned, but no changes by treatments were observed. Expand
Inhibitory Effect of Antioxidant Extracts From Various Potatoes on the Proliferation of Human Colon and Liver Cancer Cells
The proliferation of colon cancer and liver cancer cells was significantly inhibited by potato antioxidant extracts, and the highest antiproliferative activity was observed in extracts of S. pinnatisectum and the lowest in Northstar. Expand
Elucidation of Molecular Mechanisms of Physiological Variations between Bovine Subcutaneous and Visceral Fat Depots under Different Nutritional Regimes
Functional analysis revealed that energy production and lipid metabolism were among the main functions associated with differentially expressed proteins between fat depots, with visceral fat being more metabolically active than subcutaneous fat as proteins associated with lipid and energy metabolism were upregulated.

In situ identification of carboxymethyl cellulose-digesting bacteria in the rumen of cattle fed alfalfa or triticale.
A method was developed and used to arrest and stain reducing sugars (glucose) produced by bacteria with cell-surface-associated carboxymethyl cellulase (CMCase) and endoglucanase activities (CMCExpand
Screening of condensed tannins from Canadian prairie forages for anti-Escherichia coli O157:H7 with an emphasis on purple prairie clover (Dalea purpurea Vent).
Tannins from forages grown on the Canadian prairie, as well as from Quebracho, Rhus semialata, and brown seaweed, were screened for anti-Escherichia coli O157:H7 activity and transmission electron microscopy showed that CT disrupted the outer membrane structure. Expand
Triterpene-Enriched Olive Extract as an Immunopotentiator in Black Sea Bream (Acanthopagrus schlegelii)
Recently, the use of natural immunopotentiators, such as plant extracts, is predicted to offer high disease-prevention potential in aquaculture. However, few reports on the immunomodulatory impactsExpand
