The objective of this study was to determine the effects of graded inclusions of wheat bran (0%, 9.65%, 48.25% wheat bran) and two growth stages (from 32.5 to 47.2 kg and 59.4 to 78.7 kg, respectively) on the apparent ileal digestibility (AID), apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) and hindgut fermentation of nutrients and energy in growing pigs.

A surface magnetoelectric effect is revealed by density-functional calculations that are applied to ferromagnetic Fe(001), Ni(001), and Co(0001) films in the presence of an external electric field. The effect originates from spin-dependent screening of the electric field which leads to notable changes in the surface magnetization and the surface(More)
This study aims to investigate the influence of diet roughage proportion on the methanogenic communities from the rumen and fecal samples in Altay local sheep native to Xinjiang and better understand the association of methanogenic diversity or abundance with methane emissions of the ruminants. In this study, the high roughage diet was found to cause more(More)
The type-inversion to n-type at the surface of p-type Culn(1-x)Ga(x)Se2 absorber layer is taken as an important factor for the high efficiency of Culn(1-x)Ga(x)Se2 (CIGS) with low Ga content, however, the further increase of Ga content makes the n-type doping difficult and the type-inverted layer vanish, which may have a negative effect on the device(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the digestibility of crude protein (CP), amino acids and energy in three Chinese corn distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), one rice DDGS, one American corn DDGS and one American high protein distillers dried grains (HP-DDG). In Exp. 1, the apparent ileal digestibility (AID) and standardized ileal(More)
Peroxidase activity of the pregerminated rice embryos collected at various stages of development has been investigated and compared with that of the embryos under the treatment of actinomycin D. Peroxidase activity gradually increases as embryo differentiation goes on, but remains more or less stable at the stage when maximum differentiation occurs.(More)
We report a systematic theoretical study on the ferroelectric behavior of ultrathin three-component ferroelectric films, e.g., CaTiO3-BaTiO3-SrTiO3, sandwiched between electrodes. Using first-principles calculations we demonstrate that such structures have intrinsic asymmetric ferroelectricity which is robust even at the nanoscale. In addition, there exists(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable energy (ME) content of 19 rice bran samples and to develop prediction equations for DE and ME based on their chemical composition. The 19 rice bran samples came from different rice varieties, processing methods and regions. The basal diet was formulated using corn and(More)
