Digestive Physiology and Metabolism in Ruminants
Kennedy and Milligan reviewed the literature on sheep and showed that urea recycling to the rumen was positively related to the rate of apparent digestion of organic matter in the rumen and to urea concentration in plasma. As with urea, large intakes over a short time can lead to toxicity and death. A continuous supply of fermentable carbohydrates to maintain both fermentation and the supply of precursors for cell growth is paramount to efficient use of ATP. Back to top.
ABC transporters generally have 12 transmembrane domains, usually identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing, Kottra and Daniel used Xenopus oocytes expressing SGLT1 in a two-electrode voltage clamp technique to test 27 flavonoids carrying glucose residues at different positions as well as their aglycones.

A schedule and general information pertaining to the locations, rules and regulations, objectives of the Conferences, and registration and reservations procedures may be obtained by writing to Dr. Alexander M. Frank C. Gwazdauskas' research programs will include problems related to abnormal and normal reproductive conditions in the female bovine and endocrine responses related to stress and environment. A native of Waterbury, Connecticut, Dr. Gwazdauskas received a B.
In vertebrates and invertebrates, morphological and functional features of gastrointestinal GI tracts generally reflect food chemistry, such as content of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and material s refractory to rapid digestion e. The expression of digestive enzymes and nutrient transporters approximately matches the dietary load of their respective substrates, with relatively modest excess capacity. Mechanisms explaining differences in hydrolase activity between populations and species include gene copy number variations and single-nucleotide polymorphisms. Transcriptional and posttranscriptional adjustments mediate phenotypic changes in the expression of hydrolases and transporters in response to dietary signals. Many species respond to higher food intake by flexibly increasing digestive compartment size. Fermentative processes by symbiotic microorganisms are important for cellulose degradation but are relatively slow, so animals that rely on those processes typically possess special enlarged compartment s to maintain a microbiota and other GI structures that slow digesta flow. The taxon richness of the gut microbiota, usually identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing, is typically an order of magnitude greater in vertebrates than invertebrates, and the interspecific variation in microbial composition is strongly influenced by diet.

Another advantage of paracellular absorption is that it is an energetically cheap way to match absorption rate to substrate concentration in the diet and lumen.
The population of domestic ruminants is greater than 3. Despite the growing evidence for dynamic selective permeability of tight junctions, the predominance of transcellular transport has been attributed to the superior selectivity of transcellular transport via carrier-mediated transporters on the apical membrane of enterocytes, turnover and disposition of adipose tissue lipids.
