A History of Dogs as Subjects in North American Experimental Psychological Research
The modern resurgence in psychological experiments involving dogs follows a long and rich tradition of using dogs as experimental subjects in psychology. Except for a few exceptions (e.g., Pavlov, and Scott and Fuller), ...
Use of Imaging Biomarkers to Assess Perfusion and Glucose Metabolism in the Skeletal Muscle of Dystrophic Mice
Background Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe neuromuscular disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys. The disease is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration that results from mutations in or loss of the ...
Deep Sequencing of Pyrethroid-Resistant Bed Bugs Reveals Multiple Mechanisms of Resistance within a Single Population
A frightening resurgence of bed bug infestations has occurred over the last 10 years in the U.S. and current chemical methods have been inadequate for controlling this pest due to widespread insecticide resistance. Little ...
Electronic Nose Evaluation of the Effects of Canopy Side on Cabernet franc (Vitis vinifera L.) Grape and Wine Volatiles
(American Society for Enology and Viticulture, 2011-03-01)
The effect of grapevine canopy side (north versus south and east versus west) on grape and wine volatiles of Cabernet franc was evaluated during two growing seasons using two electronic nose systems based on conducting ...
Soil organic carbon dynamics and crop yield for different crop rotations in a degraded ferruginous tropical soil in a semi-arid region: a simulation approach
In recent years, simulation models have been used as a complementary tool for research and for quantifying soil carbon sequestration under widely varying conditions. This has improved the understanding and prediction of ...
Engagement in a Diabetes Self-management Website: Usage Patterns and Generalizability of Program Use
Background: Increased access to the Internet and the availability of efficacious eHealth interventions offer great promise for assisting adults with diabetes to change and maintain health behaviors. A key concern is whether ...
Biosynthesis of Galactofuranose in Kinetoplastids: Novel Therapeutic Targets for Treating Leishmaniasis and Chagas' Disease
Cell surface proteins of parasites play a role in pathogenesis by modulating mammalian cell recognition and cell adhesion during infection. β-Galactofuranose (Galf) is an important component of glycoproteins and glycolipids ...
The effects of dietary protein content and manure handling technique on ammonia emissions during short-term storage of dairy cow manure
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)
An improved understanding of the potential for dietary protein manipulation to reduce ammonia emissions from dairy farms during various stages of manure handling is needed for both modeling and policy-making efforts. The ...
Eimeria Species and Genetic Background Influence the Serum Protein Profile of Broilers with Coccidiosis
Background Coccidiosis is an intestinal disease caused by protozoal parasites of the genus Eimeria. Despite the advent of anti-coccidial drugs and vaccines, the disease continues to result in substantial annual economic ...
