Tracing Worldwide Turkey Genetic Diversity Using D-loop Sequence Mitochondrial DNA Analysis
According to recent archeological evidence, turkey <i>(Meleagris gallopavo gallopavo)</i> domestication may have occurred in Mexico around 2000 years ago. However, little is known about the phylogenetic and genealogical ...
Effects of sex on response of the bovine preimplantation embryo to insulin-like growth factor 1, activin A, and WNT7A
Abstract Background Alterations in maternal environment can sometimes affect embryonic development in a sexually-dimorphic manner. The objective was to determine whether ...
Aligned nanofiber topography directs the tenogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells
Tendon is commonly injured, heals slowly and poorly, and often suffers re-injury after healing. This is due to failure of tenocytes to effectively remodel tendon after injury to recapitulate normal architecture, resulting ...

Retinal-input-induced epigenetic dynamics in the developing mouse dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus
Abstract DNA methylation plays important roles in the regulation of nervous system development and in cellular responses to environmental stimuli such as light-derived signals. Despite great efforts in ...
Risk factors associated with exposure to bovine respiratory disease pathogens during the peri-weaning period in dairy bull calves
Abstract Background Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) remains among the leading causes of death of cattle internationally. The objective of this study was to identify risk ...
Synthesis, cytotoxicity, and hydroxyapatite formation in 27-Tris-SBF for sol-gel based CaO-P2O5-SiO2-B2O3-ZnO bioactive glasses
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-03-18)
CaO-P2O5-SiO2-B2O3-ZnO bioactive glasses were prepared via an optimized sol-gel method. The current investigation was focused on producing novel zinc based calcium phosphoborosilicate glasses and to evaluate their mechanical, ...
Therapeutic Innovations: Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Cancer
Conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy involving DNA-interacting agents and indiscriminate cell death is no longer the future of cancer management. While chemotherapy is not likely to completely disappear from the armamentarium; ...
Effects of descending positive end-expiratory pressure on lung mechanics and aeration in healthy anaesthetized piglets.
INTRODUCTION: Atelectasis and distal airway closure are common clinical entities of general anaesthesia. These two phenomena are expected to reduce the ventilation of dependent lung regions and represent major causes of ...
