Machine learning applied to transcriptomic data to identify genes associated with feed efficiency in pigs
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-03-13)
Background: To date, the molecular mechanisms that underlie residual feed intake (RFI) in pigs are unknown. Results from diferent genome‑wide association studies and gene expression analyses are not always consistent. The ...
In vivo safety evaluation of the Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 strain in broilers, piglets, and turkeys
(Toxicology Research and Application, 2019-02-11)
Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 (CBM 588) is a nonpathogenic, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus characterized by the production of short-chain fatty acids, including butyrate. The safety and tolerance of CBM 588 was ...
Functionality of a next generation biosynthetic bacterial 6-phytase in enhancing phosphorus availability to weaned piglets fed a corn-soybean meal-based diet without added inorganic phosphate
(Animal Nutrition, 2019-12-10)
The utility of a next generation biosynthetic bacterial 6-phytase (PhyG) in restoring bone ash, bone phosphorus (P) content and performance in piglets depleted in P was evaluated. A total of 9 treatments were tested as ...
Grape seed Proanthocyanidins target the Enteroendocrine system in cafeteria‐diet‐fed rats
(Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, 2019-04-12)
Scope The effects on the enteroendocrine system of three different grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) treatments are analyzed in rats on a cafeteria diet for 17 weeks. Methods and results GSPE is administered in a ...
