The History of Virginia Holsteins: Richdale Farms
Immunological castration temporarily reduces testis size and function without long-term effects on libido and sperm quality in boars.
The objective was to determine the effects of immunization against gonadotropin releasing hormone on reproductive characteristics in boars. Seventy-two boars were used in a randomized design with three treatments: single ...
Stability of emergent kinetics in optical lattices with artificial spin-orbit coupling

Prediabetes Phenotype Influences Improvements in Glucose Homeostasis with Resistance Training
Purpose To determine if prediabetes phenotype influences improvements in glucose homeostasis with resistance training (RT). Methods Older, overweight individuals with prediabetes (n = 159; aged 60±5 yrs; BMI 33±4 ...
Critical initial-slip scaling for the noisy complex Ginzburg-Landau equation
(Iop Publishing Ltd, 2016-10-28)
We employ the perturbative field-theoretic renormalization group method to investigate the universal critical behavior near the continuous non-equilibrium phase transition in the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation with ...
Neonatal maternal separation stress elicits lasting DNA methylation changes in the hippocampus of stress-reactive Wistar Kyoto rats
Early-life stress (ELS) can alter neurodevelopment in variable ways, ranging from producing deleterious outcomes to stress resilience. While most ELS studies focus on its harmful effects, recent work by our lab and others ...

Partial loss of interleukin 2 receptor gamma function in pigs provides mechanistic insights for the study of human immunodeficiency syndrome
(Impact Journals Llc, 2016-08-09)
In this study, we described the phenotype of monoallelic interleukin 2 receptor gamma knockout (mIL2RG+/Δ69-368 KO) pigs. Approximately 80% of mIL2RG+/Δ69-368 KO pigs (8/10) were athymic, whereas 20% (2/10) presented a ...
