In vitro digestion and fermentation characteristics of canola co-products simulate their digestion in the pig intestineDownload
Canola co-products are sources of amino acid and energy in pig feeds, but their fermentation characteristics in the pig intestine are unknown. Thus, we determined the in vitro fermentation characteristics of the canola co-products Brassica juncea solvent-extracted canola meal (JSECM), Brassica...
Background Transcriptome analysis of porcine whole blood has several applications, which include deciphering genetic mechanisms for host responses to viral infection and vaccination. The abundance of alpha- and beta-globin transcripts in blood, however, impedes the ability to cost-effectively...
Initial differences in lipid processing leading to pig- and beef-derived mature adipocyte dedifferentiationDownload
Clonal cultures of pig-derived mature adipocytes are capable of dedifferentiating and forming proliferative-competent progeny cells in vitro. Initial lipid processing, is different to that observed in cultures of beef-derived adipocytes. Mature pig adipocytes extrude lipid before proliferation,...
Pig follicle development is a complex but poorly understood process involving both gonadotrophins and local ovarian factors. A series of studies sought to investigate these intrafollicular cell-to-cell interactions. Microarray analysis combined with gene ontology revealed that the oocyte,...
Mid-infrared spectroscopy estimates nutrient digestibility in pigs to improve in vitro digestion modelsDownload
Co-products are increasingly used as alternative feedstuffs for pigs, but their nutritional quality varies largely. Rapid evaluation of energy digestibility of co-products is important for the feed industry and pork production. In vitro digestion (IVD) models have been used to evaluate...
Co-product feedstuffs, if properly characterized nutritionally, are an important component to maintain the feed competitiveness of the pork industry. Hence, nutrient digestibility of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) was measured using grower-finisher pigs. In Exp. 1, two methods were...
Introduction: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are increasing at an alarming rate globally. A common feature in these conditions is increased adiposity leading to insulin resistance (IR). Dyslipidemia is a major contributing...
Pork is the most widely eaten meat in the world, but typical feeding practices give it a high omega-6 (n-6) to omega-3 (n-3) fatty acid ratio and make it a poor source of n-3 fatty acids. Feeding pigs n-3 fatty acids can increase their contents in pork, and in countries where label claims are...
A diverse and dynamic microbial community (known as microbiota) resides within the pig gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The microbiota contributes to host health and performance by mediating nutrient metabolism, stimulating the immune system, and providing colonization resistance against pathogens....
Background:Gene expression profiling in blood is a potential source of biomarkers to evaluate or predict phenotypic differences between pigs but is expensive and inefficient because of the high abundance of globin mRNA in porcine blood. These limitations can be overcome by the use of QuantSeq...
