In vitro milk protein secretion by explants of Holstein bull mammary tissue from two different genetic lines
(Virginia Tech, 1990-02-05)
<p>The ability of mammary tissue from mature Holstein bulls to respond to hormonal stimuli in organ culture to synthesize and secrete milk proteins was studied. Sixteen bulls from the genetic selection and control lines ...
Mechanisms Controlling Ductal Morphogenesis in the Ruminant Mammary Gland
(Virginia Tech, 1998-08-17)
Basic research into the histology, endocrine control, and local regulation of prepuberal ruminant mammogenesis was conducted to provide a better understanding of this important developmental period. Histologic features of ...
The Role of Insulin-like Growth Factor-I and IGF-binding Proteins in Mammary Gland Development
(Virginia Tech, 1998-11-19)
Development of the mammary gland is likely mediated by locally produced growth factors acting in concert with circulating mitogens. To investigate the importance of mammary synthesis of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) ...
Xenogeneic transplantation of immortalized bovine mammary epithelial cells
(Virginia Tech, 1994-12-05)
<p>The focus of this research was to investigate the use of an immortalized bovine mammary epithelial cell line as a starting material for xenogeneic transplantation into the mammary glands of immunocompetent recipients. ...
