Analysis of linear and nonlinear genotype × environment interaction
The usual analysis of genotype × environment interaction (G × E) is based on the linear regression of genotypic performance on environmental changes (e.g., classic stability analysis). This linear model may often lead to lumping together of the non-linear responses to the whole range of...

The iron status and diet of Inuit infants living in northern Quebec who were part of a prospective cohort study was described. The prevalence of anemia (hemoglobin values >2SD below the reference mean) was 21.1% (23/109), 47.4% (55/116) and 37.7% (46/122) at 2, 6 and 12 months, respectively. The...
Toullec, Jean-Yves, Meng, Yan, Guan, Leluo, Clark, Melody S., Moore, Stephen S., Thorne, Michael A. S., Peck, Lloyd S.
Background The Antarctic krill Euphausia superba is a keystone species in the Antarctic food chain. Not only is it a significant grazer of phytoplankton, but it is also a major food item for charismatic megafauna such as whales and seals and an important Southern Ocean fisheries crop. Ecological...
Antifungal activity of secondary plant metabolites from potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.): Glycoalkaloids and phenolic acids show synergistic effectsDownload
Sánchez-Maldonado, A., Schieber, A., Gänzle, Michael G.
Aims To study the antifungal effects of the potato secondary metabolites α-solanine, α-chaconine, solanidine and caffeic acid, alone or combined. Methods and Results Resistance to glycoalkaloids varied among the fungal species tested, as derived from minimum inhibitory concentrations assays....
Antioxidant responses in harvested leaves of two cultivars of spinach differing in senescence ratesDownload
Hodges, D. Mark, Forney, Charles F., Wismer, Wendy V.
The objective of this study was to assess responses of certain antioxidants in harvested leaves of selected cultivars of spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) differing in postharvest senescence rates in order to explore the significance of these antioxidants in postharvest senescence regulation and...

Objectives. The objectives were to document the prevalence of maternal anxiety about food supply in Cree women who had 9-month-old infants, and to understand maternal and infant characteristics associated with anxiety. Study Design. The design was descriptive and combined both cross-sectional and...
The ban of sub-therapeutic antibiotic use in the European Union countries and elsewhere, and recent moves toward removal or reduced use of these compounds in other countries has put pressure on the poultry industry to look for viable alternatives. Available data suggest that specific egg yolk...
Arabidopsis GPAT9 contributes to synthesis of intracellular glycerolipids but not surface lipidsDownload
Jayawardhane, Kethmi, Tomasi, Pernell, Dyer, John M., Weselake, Randall J., Mietkiewska, Elzbieta, Singer, Stacy D., Chen, Guanqun
GLYCEROL-3-PHOSPHATE ACYLTRANSFERASE (GPAT) genes encode enzymes involved in glycerolipid biosynthesis in plants. Ten GPAT homologues have been identified in Arabidopsis. GPATs 4–8 have been shown to be involved in the production of extracellular lipid barrier polyesters. Recently, GPAT9 was...
Arterial retention of remnant lipoproteins ex-vivo is increased during insulin resistance due to increased arterial biglycan and production of cholesterol-rich atherogenic particles, that can be improved by ezetimibe in the JCR:LA-cp ratDownload
Russell, James C., Proctor, Spencer D., Uwiera, Richard R. E., Vine, Donna F., Mangat, Rabban, Hassanali, Zahra, Cheeseman, Christopher I., Borthwick, Faye, Warnakula, Samantha
Background Literature supports the “response-to-retention” hypothesis—that during insulin resistance, impaired metabolism of remnant lipoproteins can contribute to accelerated cardiovascular disease progression. We used the JCR:LA-cp rat model of metabolic syndrome (MetS) to determine the extent...
Assessing the effects of weather conditions on physical activity participation using objective measuresDownload
Chan, Catherine B., Ryan, Daniel A.
Habitual physical activity is an important determinant of health, yet many people are considered to be inactive. Identification of the obstacles to greater participation is necessary for the development of strategies to overcome those obstacles. The weather has been identified as a perceived...
