Abstract

Adiponectin is downregulated in obesity negatively impacting the thermogenesis and impairing white fat browning. Despite the notable effects of green tea (GT) extract in the enhancement of thermogenesis, if its effects are being mediated by adiponectin has been scarcely explored. For this purpose,...

Abstract

Background: Biofilm formation in S. aureus may reduce the rate of penetration of antibiotics, thereby complicating treatment of infections caused by these bacteria. The aim of this study was to correlate biofilm-forming potentials, antimicrobial resistance, and genes in S. aureus isolates. Methods: ...

Abstract

Social grouping is omnipresent in the animal kingdom. Considerable research has focused on understanding how animal groups form and function, including how collective behaviour emerges via self-organising mechanisms and how phenotypic variation drives the behaviour and functioning of animal groups. ...

Abstract

This study evaluated the genetic (TG) and phenotypic (TF) trends for the peak yield (PP), milk yield (RL), and lactation persistency (P) traits of the Murciano-Granadina (MG) goat lactation curve obtained from 80,872 lactations of 85,404 goats (historical records from 1990-2012). The biomodelling...

Abstract

Objective: To conduct a genetic and candidate gene association study with samples from phenotype-ascertained dogs to identify putative disease-associated gene/mutation for optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) in the miniature poodle. Animals studied: A total of 43 miniature poodles from the United States...

Abstract

Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is an immune-mediated disease causing repeated or persistent inflammatory episodes which can lead to blindness. Currently, there is no cure for horses with this disease. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are effective at reducing immune cell activation in vitro in many...
