Characterization of the mechanisms involved in the gender differences in hepatic taurocholate uptake.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that decreased sodium-dependent bile salt uptake in female hepatocytes was due to decreased membrane lipid fluidity and a selective decrease in Ntcp.
Structural and functional characterization of liver cell-specific activity of the human sodium/taurocholate cotransporter.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the TATA-less human SLC10A1 promoter exhibits liver-specific activity and its regulatory elements contain binding sites for C/EBP, which contributes specifically to its transcriptional regulation.
Evaluation of the cyclooxygenase selectivity of robenacoxib and its effect on recovery of ischemia-injured jejunal mucosa in horses.
TLDR
Robenacoxib selectively inhibited COX-2 and allowed recovery of barrier function in ischemia-injured equine jejunal tissue in vitro.
Molecular phylogeny of the pinworms of mice, rats and rabbits, and its use to develop molecular beacon assays for the detection of pinworms in mice
TLDR
Using high-fidelity polymerase chain reaction to amplify a large portion of the ribosomal gene complex of four pinworm species commonly found in lab rodents and rabbits, real-time molecular beacon assays for pinworm detection are developed and compared with traditional methods such as perianal tape testing, fecal flotation and direct examination of intestinal content.
Variations in terrestrial arthropod DNA metabarcoding methods recovers robust beta diversity but variable richness and site indicators
TLDR
Though their ability to identify taxa to species rank was limited, the authors were able to use arthropod COI metabarcodes from forest soil to assess richness, distinguish among sites, and recover site indicators based on unnamed exact sequence variants.
The effects of a novel anti-inflammatory compound (AHI-805) on cyclooxygenase enzymes and the recovery of ischaemia injured equine jejunum ex vivo.
TLDR
Flunixin meglumine and AHI-805 inhibit recovery of barrier function in ischaemic-injured equine jejunum in vitro through inhibition of the COX enzymes.
Dissection of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) larval tissues for physiological and molecular studies
TLDR
Dissection protocols for isolating six key tissues/organs from larvae of the Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae): the supraoesophageal ganglion, posterior midgut, hindguts, Malpighian tubules, fat body, and thoracic muscle are described.
Demographic characteristics of horses donated to the North Carolina State University Equine Health Center, 1996-2008.
TLDR
The most common reason given for unwanted horses offered for donation during 2007 and 2008 was musculoskeletal disease, with degenerative joint disease, lameness of undetermined cause, laminitis, and navicular disease being the most common musculosity conditions.
Intergenic Spacer Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Genotyping Amylostereum areolatum (Russulales: Amylostereacea) Symbionts of Native and Non-native Sirex Species
TLDR
A panel of rDNA intergenic spacer–single nucleotide polymorphisms (IGS-SNPs) for genotyping strains of A. areolatum symbionts associated with Sirex species in North America was identified and assembled to develop genetic markers for monitoring the spread of specific A. noctilio across regions.
Establishment of a cell line from the ash and privet borer beetle Tylonotus bimaculatus Haldeman and assessment of its sensitivity to diacylhydrazine insecticides
TLDR
It is established that NRCAN-Tb521 is a valuable in vitro model to study effects of ecdysone agonists in wood-boring cerambycids.
