Investigating plasma metabolomics profiles at the time of artificial insemination, based on pregnancy outcome, in Bos taurus heifers.
The development of biomarkers for the identification of infertile heifers has the potential to improve the efficiency of cow-calf production. In this study, we utilized metabolomic profiling to look for biomarkers in the ...
Jersey Steer Ruminal Papillae Histology and Nutrigenomics
The transition from a high forage to a high concentrate diet is an important milestone for beef cattle moving from a stocker system to the feedlot. However, little is known about how this transition affects the rumen ...
Evaluation of Nitrogen-Delivery Methods for Stocker Cattle Grazing Annual Ryegrass
A 3-yr study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of replacing N fertilizer with either interseeded annual legumes or supplementation with high-protein by-product feeds for stocker cattle grazing annual ryegrass. Each ...
Application of Neutral Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water as a Post-Harvest Intervention Strategy to Control Foodborne Pathogens Associated with Meat Products
The meat industry has been viewed as an important component of human society and eat safety continues to be a major food safety concern in recent years. Nowadays, due to the increasing demand and preference of “fresh-like” ...
Investigating the role of connexin 43 in oocyte developmental competence
In this study we are committed to understanding the role of connexin 43 (CXx43)-based, cumulus cell cellular coupling and its relationship to bovine embryo development. Several studies have provided clear evidence that ...
Transcriptome profiles of porcine oocytes and their corresponding cumulus cells reveal functional gene regulatory networks
The oocyte acquires developmental competence as it progresses through folliculogenesis. It does so, by communicating with the surrounding cumulus cells in a bidirectional fashion. Analyses of single oocytes are essential ...
