Influence of dry period length on reproductive performance and productivity of Lacaune dairy sheep under an intensive management system.
We recorded 8136 lactations from 4220 ewes on one farm for the period 2005-2010, and data from a total of 6762 complete lactations 1-4 were included in the study. The length of the dry period following the current lactation was studied. The larger the total milk yield (MY) and daily milk yield (DMY)...
Influence of the different sodium chloride concentrations on microbiological and physico-chemical characteristics of mozzarella cheese.
In this work the effects of addition of different amounts of sodium chloride, during cheese making, on shelf life of mozzarella cheese were evaluated. The mozzarella cheese quality decay was assessed during storage at 9°C by monitoring microbiological, sensory and physico-chemical c...
Effects of α s1-casein (CSN1S1) and κ-casein (CSN3) genotypes on milk coagulation properties in Murciano-Granadina goats.
We have performed an association analysis between polymorphisms at the goat CSN1S1 and CSN3 genes and milk coagulation (rennet coagulation time, curdling rate and curd firmness) and technological (time to cutting of curd and cheese yield) properties. In this analysis, we have included 193 records fr...
Antioxidant, antihypertensive, and immunomodulatory activities of peptide fractions from fermented skim milk with Lactobacillus delbrueckii ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant, antihypertensive and immunomodulatory characteristics of skim milk fermented with Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus LB340. Supernatants obtained from the ferments after centrifugation were subjected to ultrafiltration and yielded four pe...
Genetic polymorphism of STAT5A protein: relationships with production traits and milk composition in Italian Brown cattle.
STATs are a group of transcription factors that mediate actions of a variety of peptide hormones and cytokines within target cells (for example, prolactin and growth hormone). Therefore, STAT5A gene is a candidate marker for quantitative traits in farm animals with respect to milk production traits....
Effect of sunflower-seed oil or linseed oil on milk fatty acid secretion and lipogenic gene expression in goats fed hay-based diets
Plant oils in the diet are known to alter milk fat composition owing to changes in the supply of fatty acid precursors and/or activity of lipogenic enzymes in the mammary gland. Thirteen mid-lactating Alpine goats were used in a 3 x 3 Latin square design with 28-d periods to evaluate possible mechan...
Monitoring major mastitis pathogens at the population level based on examination of bulk tank milk samples.
The objective was to determine the proportions and bacterial counts of major mastitis pathogens in samples of bulk tank milk (BTM), as well as to clarify the relationship between these bacteria counts and bulk tank somatic cell count (BTSCC). The purpose was to judge the importance of the counts of...
Plasma vasopressin and oxytocin concentrations increase simultaneously during suckling in goats.
Our first objective was to investigate whether vasopressin secretion increases together with oxytocin during hand milking and suckling in seven goats 6-8 weeks after parturition. Four goats suckled and three were hand milked on the first day and the treatments were reversed on the next day. Blood sa...
Butyric acid and tributyrin induce apoptosis in human hepatic tumour cells.
We have investigated whether BA could induce apoptosis in transformed human liver (Hep G2) cells. Hep G2 cells treated with BA displayed acetylated histones, increased DNA fragmentation and morphological features consistent with apoptosis. These biochemical features of BA-treated liver cells are ide...
Inhibition of mitogen-induced proliferative responses of lymphocytes by bovine kappa-caseinoglycopeptides having different carbohydrate chai...
Bovine kappa-caseinoglycopeptides (i.e. residues 106-169, CGP) were prepared from kappa-casein digested with rennin and a commercial whey protein concentrate. CGP from whey protein concentrate was further divided into seven CGP fractions having different carbohydrate compositions using FPLC. Unfract...
