Dark septate endophytes (DSE) are common and abundant root-colonizing fungi in the native tallgrass prairie. To characterize DSE fungi were isolated from roots of mixed tallgrass prairie plant communities. Isolates were grouped according to morphology, and the grouping was refined by ITS-RFLP and/or sequencing of the ITS region. Sporulating species of(More)
The aims of this descriptive study were to examine the prevalence and associations of coprophenomena (involuntary expression of socially unacceptable words or gestures) in individuals with Tourette syndrome. Participant data were obtained from the Tourette Syndrome International Database Consortium. A specialized data collection form was completed for each(More)
Two experiments were conducted to examine the effects of hot boning, modified atmosphere packaging, and injection enhancement on the oxidative and sensory properties of beef round muscles. The beef knuckle (quadriceps muscles) was partially hot boned within 1.5 h postmortem from one randomly selected side of each beef carcass (n = 14), whereas the(More)
The carriers mineral oil and Silwet L-77 and the botanical insecticides Neemix 4.5 and Hexacide were evaluated for their impacts on the efficacy of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin conidia against red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst), larvae. The dosages of liquid treatments were quantified by both conidia concentration in the spray volume(More)
We conducted two experiments to evaluate the effects of added choice white grease on performance and carcass merit of barrows and gilts reared under commercial conditions. Pigs were housed either 20 (Exp. 1) or 25 (Exp. 2) per pen and were provided 0.67 m2 of pen space per pig. Diets were based on corn and soybean meal and fed in a meal form. The proportion(More)
Effects of endpoint temperature, cooking method, and quality grade on Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF) of beef longissimus lumborum (LL), biceps femoris (BF), and deep pectoralis (DP) muscles were evaluated. Eighteen of all three subprimals were selected from USDA Select and 18 from USDA Choice (Certified Angus Beef) carcasses for the respective muscles.(More)
