Discovery and annotation of novel microRNAs in the porcine genome by using a semi-supervised transductive learning approach
Despite the broad variety of available microRNA (miRNA) prediction tools, their application to the discovery and annotation of novel miRNA genes in domestic species is still limited. In this study we designed a comprehensive ...
Molecular phenomics of a high-calorie diet-induced porcine model of prepubertal obesity
(The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, 2020-04-24)
As obesity incidence is alarmingly rising among young individuals, we aimed to characterize an experimental model of this situation, considering the similarity between human and porcine physiology. For this reason, we fed ...
Taurine supplementation in high-soy diets affects fillet quality of European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)
This study evaluated the effects of taurine supplementation to diets containing a high dietary inclusion of soybean meal and soy protein concentrate on growth performance and fillet quality of juvenile European sea bass ...
A new generation of recombinant polypeptides combines multiple protein domains for effective antimicrobial activity
(Microbial Cell Factories, 2020-06-05)
Background Although most of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), being relatively short, are produced by chemical synthesis, several AMPs have been produced using recombinant technology. However, AMPs could be cytotoxic to the ...
Effects of exogenous glucoamylase enzymes alone or in combination with a neutral protease on apparent total tract digestibility and feces D-Lactate in crossbred angus bulls fed a ration rich in rolled corn
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of two glucoamylases (GA) and the combination of one GA with a neutral protease on apparent total tract digestibility in beef bulls fed a total mixed ration (TMR) rich in ...
