Elucidating the effects of photoperiod during gestation and lactation on mammary gene expression and function in cows and miceDownload
Photoperiod, or day length, generates a highly accurate biological calendar that allows animals to anticipate and adapt to environmental change throughout the year. Photoperiod coordinates both daily and yearly rhythms associated with sleep/wake cycles, behavior, and reproduction, including...
Estimation of choline intake from 24 h dietary intake recalls and contribution of egg and milk consumption to intake among pregnant and lactating women in AlbertaDownload
Despite recommendations for higher choline intakes during pregnancy and lactation, there is limited research regarding maternal intake during these important periods. In the present study, we estimated dietary choline intake during pregnancy and lactation in a population of Albertan women and the...
Ganglioside composition of differentiated Caco-2 cells resembles human colostrum and neonatal rat intestineDownload
Gangliosides are glycosphingolipids found in cell membranes and human milk with important roles in cell proliferation, differentiation, growth, adhesion, migration, signalling and apoptosis. Similar changes in ganglioside composition occur during embryonic development, lactation and cancer cell...
Maternal Essential Fatty Acid Status During Pregnancy and Postpartum in the Alberta Pregnancy Outcomes and Nutrition (APrON) Study and Infant OutcomesDownload
Docosahexaenoic (DHA) and arachidonic (AA) acids are essential fatty acids found in breast milk and are important for the infant’s brain development and cognitive functions such as those that regulate sleep and crying. The overall goal of this research was to use a large maternal infant cohort,...
Maternal long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid status during pregnancy and lactation in the APrON cohort.Download
INTRODUCTION: Docosahexaenoic (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA) are long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) that are essential for fetal and infant development. The overall aim of the study was to characterize DHA, EPA and AA status during pregnancy and lactation in the first cohort of the...
Abstract — An 8-month-old, virgin Holstein heifer with precocious mammary development was presented for examination. Protein, fat, and lactose in the mammary secretion were 14.90%, 0.12%, and 0.20%, respectively; somatic cell count was 3.9 3 10 6 /mL, with no bacterial infection. The heifer was...
Simultaneous measurement of protein and energy metabolism and application to determine lysine requirements in sowsDownload
Simultaneous measurements of energy and protein metabolism can provide valuable information about their interactions. Dietary lysine is limiting in typical feedstuffs fed to swine and, therefore, limits protein synthesis. Current recommendations for dietary amino acid and energy intakes may not...
Food availability, energetic ceilings, and life-history trade-offs have been proposed as potential determinants of offspring number in many animals. We investigated the role of these factors in determining litter size in a free-ranging population of red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus)....
