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...
Contribution of the Rumen Epithelial Transcriptome and Microbial Community to Variation in Beef Cattle Feed EfficiencyDownload
Feed efficient cattle consume less feed and produce less environmental waste than inefficient cattle. Many factors are known to contribute to differences in feed efficiency. However, it is unknown how the rumen epithelium and its associated microorganisms influence the feed efficiency of cattle....
Development of ruminal and fecal microbiomes are affected by weaning but not weaning strategy in dairy calvesDownload
The nature of weaning, considered the most stressful and significant transition experienced by dairy calves, influences the ability of a calf to adapt to the dramatic dietary shift, and thus, can influence the severity of production losses through the weaning transition. However, the effects of...
Evidence is accumulating regarding the potential long-term impact of the early gut microbiota on host health. However, our current understanding of the early microbiome of cattle, a domestic livestock species that plays an important role in meeting the increasing demand for high quality protein,...
Ruminal methanogenesis is a microbial fermentive process conducted by methanogens, releasing methane (CH4) gas through eruction, and resulting in a dietary energy loss to the host animals and a contribution to greenhouse gas emissions by the agricultural industry. However, the association amongst...
Systematic microRNAome profiling reveals the roles of microRNAs in milk protein metabolism and quality: Insights on low-quality forage utilizationDownload
In this study, we investigated the molecular regulatory mechanisms of milk protein production in dairy cows by studying the miRNAomes of five key metabolic tissues involved in protein synthesis and metabolism from dairy cows fed high- and low-quality diets. In total, 340, 338, 337, 330, and 328...
