Relationship of feeds protein structural makeup in common Prairie feeds with protein solubility, in situ ruminal degradation and intestinal digestibility
Abstract The objectives of this study were to determine the relationship between the intrinsic molecular structures of protein feeds and protein solubility, in situ rumen degradability and intestinalExpand
Moist and dry heating-induced changes in protein molecular structure, protein subfractions, and nutrient profiles in camelina seeds.
Moist heating improved the nutritive value and utilization of protein in camelina seeds compared with dry heating and significantly changed CP solubility, rumen degradability, intestinal digestibility, and protein molecular structures compared with the raw seeds. Expand
Effects of GHRP-2 and Cysteamine Administration on Growth Performance, Somatotropic Axis Hormone and Muscle Protein Deposition in Yaks (Bos grunniens) with Growth Retardation
Both GHRP-2 and CS administration can accelerate growth performance and GH, IGF-1 secretion in yaks with growth retardation, mainly due to somatotropic axis hormones secretion deficiency. Expand
Supplementation Dietary Zinc Levels on Growth Performance, Carcass Traits, and Intramuscular Fat Deposition in Weaned Piglets
The results indicated that high levels of Zn increased IMF accumulation by up-regulating intramuscular lipogenic and fatty acid transport gene expression and enzyme activities while down- Regulating lipolytic gene expressionand enzyme activities. Expand
Coated zinc oxide improves intestinal immunity function and regulates microbiota composition in weaned piglets
Results indicated that a low concentration of coated ZnO (380 or 570 mg Zn/kg) can alleviate the incidence of diarrhoea by promoting intestinal development, protecting the intestinal mucosal barrier from damage, stimulating the mucosal immune system and regulating the microbiota composition. Expand
Effect of thermal processing on estimated metabolizable protein supply to dairy cattle from camelina seeds: relationship with protein molecular structural changes.
The results show that protein molecular structural characteristics can be used to rapidly assess the MP supply to dairy cattle from raw and heat-treated camelina seeds. Expand
Effects of dietary energy level on lipid metabolism-related gene expression in subcutaneous adipose tissue of Yellow breed x Simmental cattle.
The results indicated that with dietary energy increasing, the subcutaneous fat accumulation mainly increased due to adipose tissue lipogenic gene expression and decreased lipolytic gene expression. Expand
Transcriptome Functional Analysis of Mammary Gland of Cows in Heat Stress and Thermoneutral Condition
It is concluded that HS adversely affects the immune function of dairy cows by the functional analysis of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in mammary glands of cows exposed to HS and non-heat-stressed cows. Expand
Vibrational spectroscopic investigation of heat-induced changes in functional groups related to protein structural conformation in camelina seeds and their relationship to digestion in dairy cows
Compared with dry heating, moist heating significantly changed protein subfractions, rumen degradability and intestinal digestibility, and these changes were strongly associated with changes in protein molecular structures. Expand
Bacterial Community Diversity Associated With Different Utilization Efficiencies of Nitrogen in the Gastrointestinal Tract of Goats
An association of GIT microbial communities as a factor that influences UEN in goats is suggested, as a significant correlation was observed between the UEN and the genera Succiniclasticum, Bacteroides, Ruminobacter, Methanimicrococcus, Mogibacterium, Eubacterium_hallii_group and Ruminococcus_1.
