Understory responses to mechanical restoration and drought within Montane forests of British ColumbiaDownload
Pre- and post-thinning relationships between forest overstorey and understorey characteristics at sites in both the Interior Douglas-fir (IDF) and Ponderosa Pine (PP) biogeoclimatic zones in the East Kootenay region of southeast British Columbia were investigated to quantify understorey responses...
Vaccenic acid (VA) is a ruminant-derived trans-fat and precursor of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The objective of the present study was to explore the effects of VA on immune function in a model of the metabolic syndrome, JCR:LA-cp rats. Lean (2:1 mix of +/cp and +/+) and obese (cp/cp) rats,...
Vaccenic acid suppresses intestinal inflammation by increasing the endocannabinoid anandamide and non-cannabinoid signaling molecules in a rat model of the metabolic syndromeDownload
Jacome-Sosa, Miriam, Proctor, Spencer D., Field, Catherine J., Vacca, Claudia, Nelson, Randy C., Mangat, Rabban, Reaney, Martin J., Curtis, Jonathan M., Banni, Sebastiano, Diane, Abdoulaye, Piomelli, Daniele, Igarash, Miki, Vine, Donna F., Shen, Jianheng
Vaccenic acid (VA), the predominant ruminant-derived trans fat in the food chain, ameliorates hyperlipidemia, yet mechanisms remain elusive. We investigated whether VA could influence tissue endocannabinoids (ECs) by altering the availability of their biosynthetic precursor, arachidonic acid...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
