How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Further refinement of culture media is needed to improve the quality of embryos generated in vitro. Previous results from our laboratory demonstrated that uptake of nutrients by the embryo is significantly less than what is supplied in traditional culture media. Our objective was to determine the impact of reduced nutrient concentrations in culture...
Carnivores are an interesting model for studies of embryonic amino acid metabolism and ammonium (NH4+) toxicity given the high protein content of their diets. Our objectives were to examine concentration- and stage-specific effects of essential amino acids (EAA; 0x, 0.125x, 0.25x, 0.5x, or 1.0x the concentrations in Minimum Essential Medium) and NH...
Background Candida krusei has been known to exhibit communal interactions such as pellicle formation and crawling out of nutritional broth. We noticed another possible interaction on agar surfaces, where C. krusei yeast cells formed mycelia along agar surfaces toward each other. We report here the results of experiments to study this interaction....
Concentrations of glycine (Gly) in embryo culture media are often lower (~0.1 mM) than those in oviductal or uterine fluids (≥1.2 mM). The objective of this study was to determine direct and osmolarity-dependent effects of physiological concentrations of Gly on blastocyst formation and hatching, cell allocation to the trophectoderm (TE) and inner c...
Metabolic processes in plants are key components of physiological and biochemical disease resistance. Metabolomics, the analysis of a broad range of small molecule compounds in a biological system, has been used to provide a systems-wide overview of plant metabolism associated with defense responses. Plant immunity has been examined using multiple...
