Dietary selenium has the potential to reduce growth of mammary tumors. Increasing the Se content of cows’ milk proteins is a potentially effective means to increase Se intake in humans. We investigate the effects of selenized milk protein on human mammary tumor progression in immunodeficient BALB/c nude mice. Four isonitrogenous diets with selenium levels(More)
Removing His from a postruminal AA infusion decreases milk protein and increases milk fat content. Feather meal is an inexpensive protein source, high in rumen undegradable protein but low in His. The objective of our study was to investigate dietary feather meal as a method for creating a His deficiency or imbalance to alter milk composition. Four dietary(More)
Elevated planes of nutrition in the preweaning period of dairy calf management can increase average daily gain, shorten age at puberty, and increase milk yield. In a previous study, 12 Holstein calves were fed 2 meals/d of 4 or 2 L milk replacer up to 7 wk of age. The objective of the current study was to estimate parameters of abomasal emptying and(More)
To support decision-making around diet selection choices to manage glycemia following a meal, a novel mechanistic model of intermittent gastric emptying and plasma glucose-insulin dynamics was developed. Model development was guided by postprandial timecourses of plasma glucose, insulin and the gastric emptying marker acetaminophen in infant calves fed(More)
OBJECTIVE Insulin administered directly into the brain acutely suppresses hepatic glucose production and triglyceride-rich lipoprotein (TRL) secretion in rodents. In addition, intranasally administered insulin, which selectively raises CSF insulin concentration, suppresses hepatic glucose production in humans; however, its effect on TRL secretion in humans(More)
CONTEXT Intravenous/intramuscular glucagon stimulates hepatic glucose production and adipose lipolysis. Intranasal glucagon (ING) has recently been shown to be an effective treatment for hypoglycaemia. Intranasal administration of hormones increases its central nervous system (CNS) concentration with metabolic effects independent of its plasma(More)
Selenium (Se)-enriched milk provides antioxidant benefits and has therapeutic potential against cancer. However, both antidiabetic and prodiabetic effects have been attributed to Se. Our objective was to evaluate the effect of Se-enriched milk casein on insulin sensitivity in rats when given at the requirement of 0.25 ppm Se and supranutritionally on both(More)
BACKGROUND Consumption of dairy products reduces risk of type 2 diabetes. Milk proteins and fats exhibit anti-diabetic properties but milk sugars have been studied little in this context. Galactose from milk lactose is readily converted to glycogen in the liver but its effects on insulin sensitivity have not been assessed. Prebiotic oligosaccharides from(More)
