n-3 fatty acids inhibit transcription of human IL-13: Implications for development of T helper type 2 immune responsesDownload
Fish oil supplementation during pregnancy has been associated with lower levels of cord blood IL-13, suggesting that the administration of n-3 fatty acids may attenuate the development of allergic disease. The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism by which n-3 fatty acid administration...
Xylo-oligosaccharides and virginiamycin differentially modulate gut microbial composition in chickensDownload
Background The emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in pathogens have led to a restriction on the use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal feed in some countries. The potential negative after-effects of a ban on AGPs could be mitigated by improving animal intestinal health...
Lee, Kyung-Tai, Ahn, Sungmin, Choy, Yun H., Lee, Sang-Heon, Jang, Gul-Won, Liao, Xiaoping, Lee, Seunghwan, Lee, Sung-Yeoun, Chung, Won-Hyong, Stothard, Paul, Choi, Jung-Woo, Kim, Tae-Hun, Kim, Bumsoo, Kim, Jiwoong, Lim, Dajeong, Moore, Stephen S., Kim, Namshin
Background Hanwoo (Korean cattle), which originated from natural crossbreeding between taurine and zebu cattle, migrated to the Korean peninsula through North China. Hanwoo were raised as draft animals until the 1970s without the introduction of foreign germplasm. Since 1979, Hanwoo has been bred...
Kim, Tae-Hun, Oh, Jae-Don, Han, Kwang-Jin, Choi, Jung-Woo, Choi, So-Young, Lee, Hak-Kyo, Stothard, Paul, Jeon, Heoyn-Jeong, Lee, Kyung-Tai, Lee, Jeong-Koo, Jeong, Dongkee, Kim, Namshin, Chung, Won-Hyong, Kim, Hyeong-Cheol, Liao, Xiaoping, Yang, Bokyoung, Miller, Stephen P., Lee, Sung-Jin
A main goal of cattle genomics is to identify DNA differences that account for variations in economically important traits. In this study, we performed whole-genome analyses of three important cattle breeds in Korea—Hanwoo, Jeju Heugu, and Korean Holstein—using the Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencing...
Whole genome sequence analysis of an alachlor and endosulfan degrading Pseudomonas strain W15Feb9B isolated from Ochlockonee River, FloridaDownload
We recently isolated a Pseudomonas sp. strain W15Feb9B from Ochlockonee River, Florida and demonstrated potent biodegradative activity against two commonly used pesticides - Alachlor [(2-chloro-2′,6′-diethylphenyl-N (methoxymethyl)acetanilide)] and Endosulfan...
Background One of the goals of livestock genomics research is to identify the genetic differences responsible for variation in phenotypic traits, particularly those of economic importance. Characterizing the genetic variation in livestock species is an important step towards linking genes or...
Background Despite ongoing reductions in the cost of sequencing technologies, whole genome SNP genotype imputation is often used as an alternative for obtaining abundant SNP genotypes for genome wide association studies. Several existing genotype imputation methods can be efficient for this...
Walking behaviour and glycemic control in type 2 diabetes: Seasonal and gender differences - Study design and methodsDownload
Background The high glucose levels typically occurring among adults with type 2 diabetes contribute to blood vessel injury and complications such as blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke. Higher physical activity levels are associated with improved glycemic control, as measured by...
Vitamin D supplementation and bone health in adults with diabetic nephropathy: The protocol for a randomised controlled trialDownload
Background Suboptimal vitamin D status is highly prevalent in Northern communities, particularly in those patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes and chronic renal disease. Emerging literature suggests that adherence to daily vitamin D supplementation may be an important factor...
Vaccenic and elaidic acid modify plasma and splenocyte membrane phospholipids and mitogen-stimulated cytokine production in obese insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp ratsDownload
This study assessed the long-term effects of dietary vaccenic acid (VA) and elaidic acid (EA) on plasma and splenocyte phospholipid (PL) composition and related changes in inflammation and splenocyte phenotypes and cytokine responses in obese/insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp rats. Relative to lean...
