Lineage specification of ovarian theca cells requires multi-cellular interactions via oocyte and granulosa cells (2014-12-03)Organogenesis of the ovary is a highly orchestrated process involving multiple lineage determinations of ovarian surface epithelium, granulosa cells, and theca cells. While the sources of ovarian surface epithelium and ...
Determination of relative metabolizable energy values for fats and oils via the slope-ratio precision-fed rooster assay (2015-04-24)Eight experiments were conducted to determine if the precision-fed rooster assay could be combined with a slope-ratio type assay to generate useful information on the nitrogen-corrected true metabolizable energy (TMEn) ...
Effects of weaning age and maternal nutrition on gene expression of longissimus muscle of beef steers (2015-03-19)Adipogenic/lipogenic transcriptional networks regulating intramuscular fat (IMF) deposition in response weaning age and dietary starch level were studied. The longissimus muscle (LM) of beef steers on an early weaning (141 ...
(2015-04-08)Seven experiments were conducted to investigate effects of use of feed technology to improve the nutritional value of ingredients and diets fed to pigs. The objective of Exp. 1 and 2 was to determine the digestibility of ...
(2015-02-04)Five experiments were conducted to determine the ideal Thr:Lys ratio for 25 to 50 kg growing gilts and the effects of fiber on said ratio. In Exp. 1, the objectives were to determine the standardized ileal digestible (SID) ...
