Subcutaneous fatty acid composition of steers finished as weanlings or yearlings with and without growth promotantsDownload
Background The current study evaluated the subcutaneous fatty acid (FA) composition of calf- and yearling-fed steers with or without growth promoting implants. Crossbred steers (n = 112; 267 ± 5.0 kg) of the same contemporary group were allocated to one of four production system and implant...
Heart failure is associated with major changes in cardiac energy metabolism that decrease cardiac efficiency, which can reduce cardiac function. In severe heart failure there is a shift back toward a fetal heart metabolism, with a decrease in mitochondrial oxidative metabolism and increase in...
Litter birth weight phenotype and maternal n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation in pigsDownload
Research reported in this thesis investigated effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCPUFA) supplementation, litter birth weight phenotype, and their possible interactions, on reproductive performance of the gilt and sow and postnatal performance of the litter. In an initial study, LCPUFA...
Understanding the role of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on postpartum reproductive function and embryo development in dairy cowsDownload
The objectives of this work were to investigate the influence of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on feed intake, calf birth weight, maternal and neonatal fatty acid profiles, milk production, postpartum reproductive function, early embryonic development and its transcriptome profile in...
Patients diagnosed with malignant glioma tumours have median survivals of 1.6 yrs and 5 months, respectively, highlighting the deadly nature of this disease. Despite aggressive multimodal treatment, patients with malignant glioma often present with secondary brain tumours at sites distal to the...
Four Alpine does were used in a 4 × 4 Latin square design to determine the effects of feeding canola oil at four levels: 0, 2, 4 and 6% on milk fatty acid profile. The sum of C12:0 + C14:0 + C16:0(hypercholesterolemic fatty acids) decreased linearly and C18:0 + C18:1: C16:0 (indicator of...
All mammalian cells rely on adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to maintain function and for survival. The heart has the highest basal ATP demand of any organ due to the necessity for continuous contraction. As such, the ability of the cardiomyocyte to monitor cellular energy status and adapt the supply...
