The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of crude glycerin on performance and carcass characteristics in finishing wether lambs. Thirty black-faced, Suffolk-cross wether lambs (44.1 +/- 5.6 kg initial BW) were stratified and blocked by BW to 1 of 5 individually fed, isocaloric, isonitrogenous dietary treatments containing 0, 5, 10, 15, or 20%(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of dietary protein and fat from distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) on feedlot performance, carcass characteristics, and meat quality in finishing steers. Angus-cross steers (n = 105; 443 +/- 20 kg of BW) were blocked by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 5 dietary treatments: 1) corn-based(More)
To determine the effects of BCS at parturition and postpartum lipid supplementation on blood metabolite and hormone concentrations, 3-yr-old Angus x Gelbvieh beef cows, which were nutritionally managed to achieve a BCS of 4 +/- 0.07 (479.3 +/- 36.3 kg of BW) or 6 +/- 0.07 (579.6 +/- 53.1 kg of BW) at parturition, were used in a 2-yr experiment (n = 36/yr).(More)
Early weaning of calves to a high concentrate diet results in greater fat deposition and suggests early postnatal metabolic imprinting events may be exploited as a management tool to improve cattle value. Our objective was to implement a short, high energy dietary intervention before a typical grazing period to manipulate intramuscular fat deposition in(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of maternal lipid supplementation on the immune response to antigenic challenge in suckling calves. In Exp. 1, beginning 1 d postpartum, 18 primiparous crossbred beef cows were fed Foxtail millet hay and a low-fat (control) supplement or a supplement containing cracked, high-linoleate safflower seed in(More)
PURPOSE To determine intratumor genetic heterogeneity in uveal melanoma (UM) by multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissues. METHODS DNA was extracted from whole tumor sections and from two to nine different areas microdissected from 32 FFPE UMs. Thirty-one loci on chromosomes 1, 3, 6,(More)
PURPOSE To compare the proteomic profiles of primary uveal melanomas, with and without loss of chromosome 3. METHODS Frozen specimens from three uveal melanomas with disomy 3 and from four tumors with monosomy 3, according to fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis, were subjected to high-resolution, two-dimensional (2-D) gel electrophoresis.(More)
PURPOSE To detect deletions and loss of heterozygosity of chromosome 3 in a rare subset of fatal, disomy 3 uveal melanoma (UM), undetectable by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). METHODS Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) with the P027 UM assay was performed on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) whole tumor sections from(More)
Fifty-two cases of surgical advancement of the mandible were evaluated by retrospective cephalometric and computer analysis for longitudinal skeletal and dental changes an average of 3 1/2 years after surgery. Postsurgical treatment response appeared to be a multifactorial biologic phenomenon with considerable individual variability. Results showed(More)
Cyathostomins are recognised as the primary parasitic pathogens of horses. Despite the use of benzimidazole (BZ) anthelmintics in horses for more than 40 years and widespread drug resistance in the field, the mechanisms of resistance to this drug class in cyathostomins are not fully understood. The results presented here constitute a detailed comparison of(More)
