Developmental programming in response to intrauterine growth restriction impairs myoblast function and skeletal muscle metabolism.
Fetal adaptations to placental insufficiency alter postnatal metabolic homeostasis in skeletal muscle by reducing glucose oxidation rates, impairing insulin action, and lowering the proportion of oxidative fibers. In animal ...
Working for water program
Started in 1995, this is perhaps the best known PES program in Africa designed to remove unwanted invasive plants that are threatening water supplies and biodiversity. The program employees marginalized and poor individuals ...
A review of metabolic and enzymatic engineering strategies for designing and optimizing performance of microbial cell factories
Microbial cell factories (MCFs) are of considerable interest to convert low value renewable substrates to biofuels and high value chemicals. This review highlights the progress of computational models for the rational ...
Lipid metabolism, adipocyte depot physiology and utilization of meat animals as experimental models for metabolic research.
Meat animals are unique as experimental models for both lipid metabolism and adipocyte studies because of their direct economic value for animal production. This paper discusses the principles that regulate adipogenesis ...
Challenges in enriching milk fat with polyunsaturated fatty acids
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-06-12)
Milk fatty acid composition is determined by several factors including diet. The milk fatty acid profile of dairy cows is low in polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially those of the n-3 series. Efforts to change and influence ...
The Divergent Roles of STAYGREEN (SGR) Homologs in Chlorophyll Degradation
(Korean Soc Molecular & Cellular Biology, 2015-05-31)
A Meta-Analysis of Soccer Injuries on Artificial Turf and Natural Grass.
The goal of this investigation was to determine if playing or training on third-generation artificial turf (AT) surfaces increases the incidence rate of injuries compared to natural grass (NG) surfaces. This was accomplished ...
