This experiment was designed to investigate the effects of different concentrations (0, 1.2, 1.8, 2.4, and 3.2 g/L) of sarsaponin on ruminal microbial methane production using the substrates soluble potato starch, cornstarch, or hay plus concentrate (1.5:1). Ruminal fluid was collected from a dairy cow, mixed with phosphate buffer (1:2) and incubated (30(More)
This experiment was designed to investigate the effects of different concentrations (0, 0.33, 0.66, 0.99, and 1.32 g/L) of a twin-strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae live cells on in vitro mixed ruminal microorganism fermentation of corn starch, soluble potato starch, and sudangrass hay (60.5%, DM basis) plus concentrate mixture (39.5%, DM basis). Ruminal(More)
AIMS The object of the present study is isolation of methyl coenzyme-M reductase (MCR) genes (mcrA) from the bovine rumen fluid and determination of phylogenetical placements of the genes to investigate mechanisms of methanogenesis in the rumen from a point of view of mcrA genes. METHODS Genes for methanogen-specific MCR were isolated from the bovine(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of different concentrations of l-malate (0, 5, 10 and 20 mm), 2-iodopropane-beta-cyclodextrin complex (CD-IP) (0, 0.1, 0.2 and 0.4 mm) and a combination of malate (10 and 20 mm) plus CD-IP (0.2 and 0.4 mm) on methane production from corn starch. Ruminal fluid was collected from dairy cows, mixed with(More)
The effects of alpha-cyclodextrin-horseradish oil complex (CD-HR) on methane production and ruminal fermentation were studied in vitro and in steers. In the in vitro study, diluted ruminal fluid (30 mL) was incubated anaerobically at 38 degrees C for 6 h with or without CD-HR, using cornstarch as substrate. The CD-HR was added at various concentrations (0,(More)
With the advent of quantum groups q-orthogonal polynomials are objects of special interest in both mathematics and physics. For instance, q-deformed harmonic oscillator provides a group-theoretic setting for the q-Hermite and the q-Laguerre polynomials. In the mathematical framework needed to describe the properties of these q-polynomials, such as the(More)
Introduction: This study aimed to assess which echocardiographic method has the best agreement with the mitral valve area (MVA) invasively evaluated by the Gorlin’s formula and also to evaluate the feasibility and reproducibility of three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography for the estimation of MVA and Wilkins score in patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis(More)
