    Three experiments were conducted to determine effects of ractopamine-HCl, sold under the trade name Optaflexx, on rumen fermentation. In experiment 1, fermentative gas production was measured in vitro to determine the ...
  • Ok, Chihyung; Back, Ki-Joon; Shanklin, Carol W. (2008-05-07)
    The purpose of this study was to test the service recovery paradox and double deviation on customers' overall satisfaction considering definitional and methodological issues. This study employed a scenario experimentation ...
  • Cook, Chad M.; Haub, Mark D. (2008-08-26)
    Athletes are continually searching for means to optimize their performance. Within the past 20 years, athletes and scientists have reported and/or observed that consuming a carbohydrate restricted diet may improve ...
  • Lauer, Jacob K. (2008-04-09)
    A paper presented to the College of Agriculture Honors Committee of Kansas State University in partial fulfillment of requirements for the Honors Program of Kansas State University.
  • Fox, J.T.; Jacob, M.E.; Reinstein, S.L.; Drouillard, James S.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Escherichia coli O157 is an important food-borne pathogen for which the gastrointestinal tract of cattle is the major reservoir. Fecal shedding of E. coli O157 in cattle reflects the ability of the organism to persist in ...
  • Gadgil, P.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Treating food with ionizing radiation improves product safety and helps maintain quality. The main selling point of irradiated foods is that it is microbially safe. Beginning in October 2002, companies could petition the ...
  • Raines, C.R.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Higgins, James J.; Marsden, James L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    With the emergence of Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and the necessity to guarantee cattle ages to meet export requirements of some countries, the need to accurately determine age is paramount to the worldwide ...
  • Ayella, Allan K.; Trick, Harold N.; Wang, Weiqun (2008-04-28)
    Lignans are phenylpropane dimers that are biosynthesized via the phenylpropanoid pathway, in which pinoresinol lariciresinol reductase (PLR) catalyzes the last steps of lignan production. Our previous studies demonstrated ...
  • Rosenkranz, Richard R.; Cook, Chad M.; Haub, Mark D. (2008-05-09)
    Purpose: To illustrate the effects of low-carbohydrate (LC) and grain-based (GB) diets on body composition, biomarkers, athletic training, and performance in an elite triathlete. Methods: The athlete followed 2 dietary ...
  • Xie, Linglin; Jiang, Yu; Ouyang, Ping; Chen, Jie; Doan, Hieu; Herndon, Betty; Sylvester, Jessica E.; Zhang, Ke; Molteni, Agostino; Reichle, Marie; Zhang, Rongqing; Haub, Mark D.; Baybutt, Richard C.; Wang, Weiqun (2008-04-25)
    Weight control by exercise and dietary calorie restriction (DCR) has been associated with reduced cancer risk, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. This study was designed to compare the effects of weight ...
  • Ricklefs, Kristen; Klaahsen, Darcey; Medeiros, Denis M. (2008-03-25)
    We hypothesized that the increase in mitochondrial proliferation in hearts from copper-deficient rats is due to an increase in expression of the transcriptional factor Ppargc1a, which regulates transcriptional activity for ...
  • Lu, Jia; Xie, Linglin; Sylvester, Jessica; Wang, Jiasong; Bai, Jianfa; Baybutt, Richard; Wang, Weiqun (2008-04-28)
    Cancer prevention by weight control via dietary calorie restriction (DCR) and/or exercise has been demonstrated in animal models. To understand the underlying mechanisms, we compared phorbol ester (TPA)-induced gene ...
  • Ameri, F.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds found at a level of parts per billion in grilled fish and meats. Since the connection between consumption of dietary carcinogens and risk of different ...
  • Hijaz, F.; Smith, J. Scott; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Anhydrous ammonia is used as a refrigerant in large warehouses for cooling meats, fruits, vegetables, milk, and other products. Ammonia offers several advantages over other refrigerants; it does not harm the ozone layer ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marston, T.T.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Enhancement of steer and heifer meat has become a common practice, especially for some large retailers in the United States, because it increases the weight of salable product and decreases variability in tenderness and ...
