Extraction of canola proteins and assessment of their applications: cruciferin for encapsulation of bioactives and napin as a chaperone-like moleculeDownload
Canola is a farm-gate crop in Canada. Canola meal after oil extraction is used mostly as animal feed with limited value-added applications. Canola proteins are known to have great potential for use in food and non-food applications due to their nutritional, biological and functional properties....
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...
The effects of broiler breeder dietary energy and protein during rearing and dietary energy level of lay diets on egg composition, offspring performance and carcass yield were evaluated. Pullets were fed a diet containing high ME (2,736 kcal/kg; HEREAR), or low ME (2,528 kcal/kg; LEREAR) combined...
The development of rapid and bioorthogonal chemical reactions has expanded greatly the utility of bioconjugation chemistry in the service of site-selective protein labeling, even allowing molecular imaging in live cells or animals. âClickâ chemistry is particularly desirable due to its fast...
An examination of linking and blocking procedures for use in deflection cantilever array-based protein detectionDownload
In this project common linking and blocking procedures were examined for use in multiplexed deflection cantilever array-based detection of proteins. A human interferon gamma (INF-γ) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the linking and blocking...
Adipose tissue plays an important role in the energetic balance, but it is also an important aspect of meat quality and animal productivity. However, the understanding on how fat metabolism is regulated in beef cattle is not clear. This research aimed at exploring how bovine adipose tissue is...
α-Synuclein has been implicated in the progression of Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. This work reports on the structural propensity and druggability of this protein using a combination of Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics, and Virtual...
Computational support systems for prediction and characterization of protein crystallization outcomesDownload
Analysis of protein structures may reveal their function, regulation and interactions. Almost 90% of the known protein structures were solved using X-ray crystallography; however, many more structures remain unsolved. Protein Structure Initiative (PSI) project was created to speed up structure...
