Innate Immune Cells may be Involved in Prepubertal Bovine Mammary Development
(Virginia Tech, 2015-07-09)
Pre-pubertal bovine mammary development involves ductal and stromal tissue changes. In mice, this process is impacted by presence of innate immune cells. Whether or not such immune cells are present or involved in bovine ...
The Role of Exogenous Somatotropin, Ovariectomy and Extracellular Matrix in Bovine Mammary Gland Development
(Virginia Tech, 2010-01-27)
The highly regulated maturation of the mammary gland is poorly understood. Our studies were designed to further characterize the role of ovarian hormones, growth hormone (GH)/IGF axis proteins and extracellular matrix (ECM) ...
The Effects of Tamoxifen on Mammary Development in Prepubertal Heifers
(Virginia Tech, 2013-08-28)
Our purpose was to determine the effects on mammary gland development in prepubertal heifers given the anti-estrogen tamoxifen. Sixteen Holstein calves were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups: tamoxifen-injected ...
The Effect of Increased Nutrient Intake and Exogenous Estrogen on Mammary Gland Growth, Morphology, Histology, and Gene Expression of Holstein Heifer calves
(Virginia Tech, 2016-10-24)
Current data indicates that feeding dairy calves more nutrients in early life allows them to produce more milk in the future. Mechanisms responsible are poorly understood. Thirty-six Holstein heifer calves were fed either ...
