Relationship Between Vitamin D Status From Childhood to Early Adulthood With Body Composition in Young Australian Adults

Vitamin D plays a role in the differentiation and metabolism of skeletal muscle and, possibly, adipose tissue; however, the relationship between vitamin D status during growth and body composition in early adulthood is unclear.

SPOP-containing complex regulates SETD2 stability and H3K36me3-coupled alternative splicing

Trimethylation of histone H3K36 is a chromatin mark associated with active gene expression, which has been implicated in coupling transcription with mRNA splicing and DNA damage response. SETD2 is a major H3K36 trimethyltransferase, which has been implicated as a tumor suppressor in mammals. Here, we report the regulation of SETD2 protein stability by the proteasome system, and...

Spatial Pattern in Aerosol Insecticide Deposition Inside a Flour Mill

Aerosol insecticides are commonly used for management of stored-product pests inside food facilities, but the physical complexity of the interior of most food facilities may influence the dispersal and deposition of droplets and create spatial variation in dosage. The spatial pattern in aerosol deposition was evaluated inside a flour mill using a high density grid of bioassay...

Identification of a dietary pattern prospectively associated with bone mass in Australian young adults

Background: Relatively little is known about the relations between dietary patterns and bone health in adolescence, which is a period of substantial bone mass accrual.

Dietary saturated fat intake and atherosclerotic vascular disease mortality in elderly women: a prospective cohort study

Background: The reduction of saturated fatty acid (SFA) intake has been the basis of long-standing dietary recommendations. However, recent epidemiologic studies have reported conflicting evidence in the relation between SFA consumption and risk of atherosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD) mortality.

Efficacy of Pesticide Mixtures Against the Western Flower Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) Under Laboratory and Greenhouse Conditions

Western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis Pergande is a commonly encountered and economically important insect pest of greenhouses. Greenhouse producers typically apply pesticides as mixtures to mitigate western flower thrips populations; however, there is limited information available on the compatibility and efficacy of commonly used pesticide mixtures. This study...

Association between yogurt, milk, and cheese consumption and common carotid artery intima-media thickness and cardiovascular disease risk factors in elderly women

Background: Despite the contribution of dairy foods to total dietary saturated fat intake, available data indicate that dairy consumption may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Evaluation of Effects of Coleopteran-Specific Cry3Bb1 Protein on Earthworms Exposed to Soil Containing Corn Roots or Biomass

Corn engineered to produce the Cry3Bb1 protein from Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner (Bt) has provided unprecedented control for corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera Le Conte). However, accumulation and persistence of plant-produced Bt protein in soils may occur where Bt crops are repeatedly grown and residues of the crop plants are incorporated into the soil. If Bt...

Detectability of Coleopteran-specific Cry3Bb1 Protein in Soil and Its Effect on Nontarget Surface and Below-Ground Arthropods

Corn engineered to produce the Cry3Bb1 protein from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt ) kumamotoensis has provided unprecedented control for corn rootworm (Diabrotica spp.). However, the Bt protein may be released in soil by root exudates or decaying plant residues that may affect soil organisms. Field studies were conducted to determine the abundance of surface and below-ground...
