Transcriptomic changes in ruminal tissue induced by the periparturient transition in dairy cowsDownload
Steele, Michael A., AlZahal, Ousama, Dionissopoulos, Louis, McBride, Brian W., Matthews, James C.
To understand how the capacity for fat metabolism (uptake, synthesis, modification) changes in rumen epithelia immediately before and after onset of lactation in dairy cows, rumen fluid Short Chain Fatty Acid (SCFA) concentrations and mRNA expression profiles of rumen epithelia was determined in...
Transport and reaction processes in bioremediation of organic contaminants. 1. Review of bacterial degradation and transportDownload
Bressler, David C., Gray, Murray R.
Bioremediation of contaminants in soil and water involves a complex interplay between transport processes and biological reactions. Equilibrium physical factors such as aqueous solubility, soil adsorption, and phase partitioning indicate the transport processes that can limit bioremediation,...
UV-C light inactivation of penicillium expansum on pear surfaces: Influence on physicochemical and sensory quality during storageDownload
Syamaladevi, Roopesh M., Lupien, Shari L., Bhunia, Kanishka, Sablani, Shyam S., Dugan, Frank, Rasco, Barbara, Killinger, Karen, Dhinga, Amit, Ross, Carolyn
UV-C inactivation kinetic data of Penicillium expansum on intact and wounded pear disks were determined. P. expansum conidia (0.5 mL, 1.6 × 107 CFU/mL) were spot inoculated onto intact and wounded pear tissue with skin (excised disks), treated with UV-C doses ranging 0.101–3.06 kJ/m2 at 23 °C and...
Undersowing rutabaga with clover: Impact on Delia radicum (Diptera: Anthomyiidae) and its natural enemiesDownload
Coady, Juanita R., Larno, David J., Dixon, Peggy L., Spaner, Dean
The cabbage maggot, Delia radicum (L.), is a serious pest of cruciferous crops in temperate regions of North America and Europe. The effects of undersowing rutabaga, Brassica napus L. subsp. rapifera Metzg. (Brassicaceae), with white clover, Trifolium repens L. (Leguminosae), on second-generation...
Understanding postprandial inflammation and its relationship to lifestyle behaviour and metabolic diseasesDownload
Cabezas, Manuel C., Mamo, John C., Proctor, Spencer D., Botham, Kathleen M., Klop, Boudewijn
Postprandial hyperlipidemia with accumulation of remnant lipoproteins is a common metabolic disturbance associated with atherosclerosis and vascular dysfunction, particularly during chronic disease states such as obesity, the metabolic syndrome and, diabetes. Remnant lipoproteins become attached...
Understanding the influence of state/phase transitions on ice recrystallization in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) during frozen storageDownload
Syamaladevi, Roopesh M., Manahiloh, Kalehiwot N., Muhunthan, Balasingam, Sablani, Shyam S.
Temperature fluctuations during storage and distribution of frozen foods lead to ice recrystallization and microstructural modifications that can affect food quality. Low temperature transitions may occur in frozen foods due to temperature fluctuations, resulting in less viscous and partially...
Understory responses to mechanical restoration and drought within Montane forests of British ColumbiaDownload
Page, Hillary N., Newman, Reg F., Bork, Edward W.
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...
Use of digital images for evaluation of factors responsible for visual preference of apples by consumersDownload
Cliff, Margaret, Sanford, Katherine, Wismer, Wendy, Hampson, Cheryl
This research used digital images to explore some of the factors responsible for consumer preference of visual characteristics of apples (Malus ×domestica Borkh.). The images systematically varied in color and shape (Expt. A: 9 images) and type, shape, and background color (Expt. B: 10 images),...

Objective: To estimate the prevalence and determinants of use of vitamin and mineral supplements among adult Canadians. Methods: Data from adult respondents of the Canadian Community Health Survey Cycle (CCHS) 2.2 were used. Participants were asked about their use of vitamin and mineral...
Proctor, Spencer D., Ruth, Megan R., Field, Catherine J., Gergung, Christopher A., Blewett, Heather J.
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,...
