Estimation of carcass composition in cattle using some carcass measurements. 2. Testing of combined carcass traits

, : Estimation of carcass composition in cattle using some carcass measurements. 2. Testing of combined carcass traits. Archiv fur Tierzucht 36(1): 27-38

An account is given of the prediction of carcass composition in German Simmental and German Black Pied young bulls, using 11 combinations of 3-14 measurements on the dissected half- carcass. It was concluded that the percentage of carcass fat and lean may be estimated on the basis of combining 2 backfat thickness measurements, 2 conformation measurements and the percentage of internal fat, and the bone content may be predicted using a combination of 4 conformation measurements.

VE-cadherin is an important protein in the endothelial barrier. Using immunofluorescence confocal microscopy and Western blots, we tested whether Akt, PKC, ERK-1/2, and eNOS regulate VEGF-induced changes in VE-cadherin organization at intercellula...

The discharge of effluents from the industries situated around the major cities of Gujarat to nearby rivers or open land is of great concern with respect to soil-plant-water pollution as the farmers around these areas are using effluents or contam...
