    Arabinoxylans are of significant importance to human health due to their potential to modulate both the adaptive and innate immune systems. Arabinoxylans of various structures and sources have been shown to affect different immune cells to augment a wide range of immune responses in vitro and in...
  6. Undernutrition regulates the expression of a novel splice variant of myostatin and insulin-like growth factor 1 in ovine skeletal muscle

    Domestic Animal Endocrinology 52:17 (2015)

    Undernutrition suppresses the growth of skeletal muscles and alters the expression of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), a key mitogen, and myostatin, a potent inhibitor of myogenesis. These changes can explain, at least in part, the reduced growth of skeletal muscles in underfed lam...

  9. The efficiency and the demagnetization field of a general Halbach cylinder

    Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials 384:128 (2015)

    The maximum magnetic efficiency of a general multipole Halbach cylinder of order p is found as function of p. The efficiency is shown to decrease for increasing absolute value of p. The optimal ratio between the inner and outer radius, i.e. the ratio resulting in the most efficient des...

  13. Heritage tourism, CSR and the role of employee environmental behaviour

    Tourism Management 48:399 (2015)

    Although research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) has grown steadily, little research has focused on CSR at the individual employee level within cultural heritage tourism. This article sheds light on the antecedents of employee environmental behaviour and the effects of a soci...
  14. Substituting redberry juniper for oat hay in lamb feedlot diets: Carcass characteristics, adipose tissue fatty acid composition, and sensory panel traits

    Meat Science 104:1 (2015)

    We hypothesized that ground juniper and dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) fed to lambs would have no negative effects on end products. Lambs were individually fed diets containing mainly sorghum grain and oat hay (control) or DDGS-based diets consisting mainly of DDGS, sorgh...

    Computational Statistics & Data Analysis 86:52 (2015)

    Methods for capturing images in three dimensions are now widely available, with stereo-photogrammetry and laser scanning being two common approaches. In anatomical studies, a number of landmarks are usually identified manually from each of these images and these form the basis of subse...
  17. Assessing approaches and barriers to reduce antipsychotic drug use in Florida nursing homes.

    Aging and Mental Health 19(6):507 (2015) PMID 25166458

    Antipsychotic medications have been federally regulated since 1987, yet research suggests they continue to be used inappropriately to alleviate behavioral symptoms associated with dementia. In 2012, the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid launched a new initiative to reduce antipsychotic medication...
