A characterization of inflammatory and structural markers within the rumen epithelium during grain-induced ruminal acidosis in lactating dairy cattleDownload
The objective of this study was to characterize the mRNA and protein expression of inflammatory and structural genes in the rumen epithelium during grain-induced ruminal acidosis in lactating dairy cattle. A total of 16 rumen-fistulated, lactating Holstein dairy cattle (618±35 kg of body weight,...

Acid-base properties of cyanobacterial surfaces II: Silica as a chemical stressor influencing cell surface reactivityDownload
Bacteria grow in complex solutions where the adsorption of aqueous species and nucleation of mineral phases on the cell surface may interfere with membrane-dependent homeostatic functions. While previous investigations have provided evidence that bacteria may alter their surface chemical...
Altered microRNA expression in bovine subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissues from cattle under different dietDownload
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of molecular regulators found to participate in numerous biological processes, including adipogenesis in mammals. This study aimed to evaluate the differences of miRNA expression between bovine subcutaneous (backfat) and visceral fat depots (perirenal...
Alternative Requirements for Vestigial, Scalloped, and Dmef2 during Muscle Differentiation in Drosophila melanogasterDownload
Abstract: Vertebrate development requires the activity of the myocyte enhancer factor 2 (mef2) gene family for muscle cell specification and subsequent differentiation. Additionally, several muscle-specific functions of MEF2 family proteins require binding additional cofactors including members...
Microarrays are biotechnological advancements measuring expressions of thousands of genes in a single assay. A two-group microarray study yields gene expression measurements for patients with a disease of interest and for healthy controls. Our objective is to apply the methods of microarray data...
Autoregulation of RNA helicase expression in response to temperature stress in Synechocystis spCC 6803Download
RNA helicases are ubiquitous enzymes whose modification of RNA secondary structure is known to regulate RNA function. The pathways controlling RNA helicase expression, however, have not been well characterized. Expression of the cyanobacterial RNA helicase, crhR, is regulated in response to...
Butyrate-mediated genomic changes involved in the non-specific host defenses, matrix remodelling and the immune response in the rumen epithelium of cows afflicted with subacute ruminal acidosisDownload
Subacute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA) is a disorder in cattle which can lead to chronic inflammation in the rumen epithelium, known as rumenitis. Butyrate has been shown to attenuate some of the detrimental effects of inflammatory gastroenteral disorders but the molecular mechanisms mediated by...
Characterization of the altered gene expression profile in early porcine embryos generated from parthenogenesis and somatic cell chromatin transferDownload
The in vitro production of early porcine embryos is of particular scientific and economic interest. In general, embryos produced from in vitro Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) manipulations, such as somatic cell chromatin transfer (CT) and parthenogenetic activation (PA), are less...
Optical imaging has long been a gold standard for medical imaging. However, due to the high optical scattering in tissues, it has not been possible to image deeper than a few wavelengths with a useful resolution. Photoacoustic imaging - the use of short-pulsed lasers to induce an ultrasound...
