The objective of this study was to examine the influence of 17β-estradiol (E2) on distribution of LH and FSH isoforms during the follicular phase of the bovine estrous cycle prior to the preovulatory surges of LH and FSH. On Day 16 of the estrous cycle (Day 0 = estrus), intact controls (CONT; n = 4) were treated with prostaglandin F (PGF) to induce luteal regression and initiation of the follicular phase. Other cows were also treated with PGF and either ovariectomized (OVX; n = 5) or ovariectomized and given E2 implants (OVXE; n = 6) to mimic the pattern ...


Changes In Plant Variety Protection, Neil Harl Dec 1994

Changes In Plant Variety Protection, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Since enactment in 1970, the Plant Variety Protection Act had received relatively little attention until the litigation relating to the "saved seed" exception commenced in 1991. That case, Asgrow Seed Co. v. Winterboer, is before the U.S. Supreme Court with a decision expected some time in 1995.

The Congress has now passed and the President has signed legislation amending the 1970 act which reverses, statutorily, the U.S. Court of Appeals decision in Asgrow Seed Co. v. Winterboer and makes several other changes in the Plant Variety Protection Act.

Agricultural And Food Policy Preferences: The 1994 Perspectives Of South Dakota Agricultural Producers, Bashir Qasmi, John A. Sondey Dec 1994

Agricultural And Food Policy Preferences: The 1994 Perspectives Of South Dakota Agricultural Producers, Bashir Qasmi, John A. Sondey

Economics Research Reports

U.S. farm policies are reviewed, every five years concurrent with the drafting of new farm legislation. The present farm bill expires in 1995, and a new bill will be debated and enacted in 1995. Since farm and food policies have a major impact on farmers, information on their preferences with regard to these policies are invaluable to legislators as well as to different advocacy groups (working for farmers). The research was completed as a part of a 15 state study to document the agricultural and food policy preferences by agricultural producers. This report deals with the policy preferences of ...

More On Related Party Sales, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

In the April 29, 1994, Agricultural Law Digest, we examined the subject of related party sales with emphasis on the rules governing sales of depreciable property between related persons and related party sales where the buyer resells the property within two years. Because of the interest in the topic, particularly involving the sale of livestock held for breeding and dairy purposes, this article explores additional features of the general problem of related party sales.


Indicators Of Nutrient Limited Plankton Growth In Lakes Near Mount Saint Helens, Washington, Kurt Davis Carpenter Dec 1994

Indicators Of Nutrient Limited Plankton Growth In Lakes Near Mount Saint Helens, Washington, Kurt Davis Carpenter

Dissertations and Theses

Several lakes located in the blast zone of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens were studied to determine if the plankton in the lakes were limited in their growth by nitrogen or phosphorus availability. Long term nutrient enrichment experiments were performed on lake water from five lakes and measures of chlorophyll-a, carbon fixation, and nutrient uptake were used to evaluate the extent of limitation. Nutrient concentrations, ratios, and uptake from 14 lakes provided additional evidence for limitation by nitrogen and/or phosphorus. The physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the lakes were also examined to monitor the return of ...


Daughter Cells Of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae From Old Mothers Display A Reduced Life Span, Nicanor Austriaco, Brian K. Kennedy, Leonard Guarente Dec 1994

Daughter Cells Of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae From Old Mothers Display A Reduced Life Span, Nicanor Austriaco, Brian K. Kennedy, Leonard Guarente

Biology Department Faculty Publications

The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae typically divides asymmetrically to give a large mother cell and a smaller daughter cell. As mother cells become old, they enlarge and produce daughter cells that are larger than daughters derived from young mother cells. We found that occasional daughter cells were indistinguishable in size from their mothers, giving rise to a symmetric division. The frequency of symmetric divisions became greater as mother cells aged and reached a maximum occurrence of 30% in mothers undergoing their last cell division. Symmetric divisions occurred similarly in rad9 and ste12 mutants. Strikingly, daughters from old mothers, whether they arose ...

Pronominal Clitics In Québec Colloquial French: A Morphological Analysis, Julie Auger Dec 1994

Pronominal Clitics In Québec Colloquial French: A Morphological Analysis, Julie Auger

IRCS Technical Reports Series

The grammatical status of Romance pronominal clitics has long been the object of intense debate. Are they syntactically-independent arguments or are they affixal agreement markers? This dissertation addresses this question with respect to Québec Colloquial French (QCF). It treats the morphophonological and morphosyntactic dimensions as two independent dimensions, thus allowing either for affixes to have argument status and prohibiting them from co-occurring with an overt, lexical argument, or for non-affixal elements to behave like agreement markers and not count as syntactic arguments. The analysis reveals that all the clitics of QCF are affixes at the morphological level, since they demonstrate ...


Pb1533-Nipple Watering Systems For Broilers, The University Of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service Dec 1994

Pb1533-Nipple Watering Systems For Broilers, The University Of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service

Animals/Livestock

Nipple watering systems for broilers have become very popular in recent years. This is mainly because these systems save labor by eliminating the chore of cleaning waterers. Although labor is greatly reduced with nipple watering systems, this does not mean that they require less management. In fact, nipple waterers demand more time, knowledge and effort to operate properly than do open systems. Problems caused by insufficient or improper management of nipple watering systems can have a serious impact on broiler performance.

Opioid-Induced Ocular Hypotension: Actions At Pre- And Postjunctional Sites, Duanran Wang Dec 1994

Opioid-Induced Ocular Hypotension: Actions At Pre- And Postjunctional Sites, Duanran Wang

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

This study examined the ocular actions of an opioid agonist. Experiments were performed to evaluate the effects of DPDPE ([D-pen2, D-pen5] enkephalin), a delta opioid agonist on: 1) intraocular pressure (IOP) in rabbits; 2) cAMP accumulation in rabbit iris ciliary bodies (ICBs); 3) 3H-norepinephrine (NE) overflow from electrically stimulated sympathetic nerves in ICBs. DPDPE Lowerd IOP in normal rabbits but not in sympathectomized (SX) eyes. Naloxone did not inhibit the effect of DPDPE on IOP in normal rabbits. DPDPE inhibited 3H-NE overflow and suppressed cAMP accumulation in ICBs. The presence of naltrindole, a delta receptor antagonist, did not prevent the ...


Host Specificity Of Rhabdochona Canadensis (Nematoda: Rhabdochonidae) In Nebraska, Michael A. Barger, John J. Janovy Jr. Dec 1994

Host Specificity Of Rhabdochona Canadensis (Nematoda: Rhabdochonidae) In Nebraska, Michael A. Barger, John J. Janovy Jr.

John Janovy Publications

Intermediate and definitive host specificity of Rhabdochona canadensis in Nebraska were investigated. Mayfly nymphs Trichorythodes sp. and Caenis sp. were found to serve as experimental intermediate hosts. Development inside the nymphs required approximately 10 days, with the worms passing through two molts and then becoming encapsulated in the hemocoel as infective third-stage juveniles. Survey data revealed that only the red shiner Cyprinella lutrensis serves as definitive host for R. canadensis in nature. Laboratory infections of Notropis dorsalis, N. stramineus, and Fundulus zebrinus. all of which were uninfected in nature, were attempted to determine if observed specificity was due to physiological ...


Second Intermediate Host-Specificity Of Haematoloechus Complexus And Haematoloechus Medioplexus (Digenea: Haematoloechidae), Scott D. Snyder, John J. Janovy Jr. Dec 1994

Second Intermediate Host-Specificity Of Haematoloechus Complexus And Haematoloechus Medioplexus (Digenea: Haematoloechidae), Scott D. Snyder, John J. Janovy Jr.

John Janovy Publications

Second intermediate host-specificity was examined for two species of the frog lung fluke genus Haematoloechus. Nine species of freshwater arthropods were exposed to cercariae of H. complexus and H. medioplexus. Metacercariae of H. complexus developed in all arthropod species used. Metacercariae of H. medioplexus developed only in anisopteran odonate naiads. This difference in host utilization may have epizootiological implications. The potential development of H. complexus in a greater number of arthropods than H. medioplexus may increase the chances of ingestion of H. complexus by an anuran host. The range of arthropods parasitized by H. complexus indicates that host-specificity of the ...

"Notes On Bird Sightings In Nebraska," From Nebraska Bird Review (December 1994)

Nebraska Bird Review

Northern Waterthrush. At 9:35 a.m. on December 14, and again at 10:15 a.m. on December 21, 1994, I observed what I believe was the same bird on a Burlington Northern railroad embankment north of Gifford Road in Fontenelle Forest, Bellevue, NE. On December 14, I saw it for 7 seconds. It vocalized with a sharp "chink" as it hopped up on a fallen log, then vocalized again 6-7 seconds later as it jumped down into thick underbrush. It was silent on December 21, but I observed it for at least ten minutes as it walked at ...

Fall Field Report, August-November 1994, W. Ross Silcock, Richard C. Rosche Dec 1994

Fall Field Report, August-November 1994, W. Ross Silcock, Richard C. Rosche

Nebraska Bird Review

The fall season is a long one in terms of bird movements. The SUMMER FIELD REPORT detailed the post-breeding wanderings of herons and the beginning of shorebird migration. This report covers the end of these and the southward movements of insectivorous passerines, mainly in August and September, while seedeaters such as sparrows follow, mainly in September and October. Waterfowl generally bring up the rear, moving south just ahead of the freeze-up.

The fall season is probably the most exciting time for rare bird enthusiasts, as young birds of many species wander, often aimlessly, at this time of year before they ...


Research Report No. 32, Trends Of Non-Straight Tree Stems In Loblolly And Slash Pine Plantations In East Texas, 1985-1994, H. Alexis Ross, J. David Lenhart Dec 1994

Research Report No. 32, Trends Of Non-Straight Tree Stems In Loblolly And Slash Pine Plantations In East Texas, 1985-1994, H. Alexis Ross, J. David Lenhart

Informal Project Reports

Trees from East Texas loblolly ( Pinus taeda L. ) and slash ( Pinus effiottii Engelm. ) pine plantations are one of the sources of raw material for conversion into products such as paper, veneer and lumber by East Texas forest product mills. The utilization of the planted trees may depend on various biological and economical factors. Factors such as tree size, tree condition, stumpage prices and interest rates can play a role in the merchandizing process.

One of the factors, tree condition, may be affected by tree crown position in canopy, incidence of disease, single stem and straightness of stem. Trees with straighter ...
