Research Review: Cattle breed differences in copper use

Research Review: Cattle breed differences in copper use | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
Copper is an important mineral for cattle and one that is often deficient in forages. Copper absorption is negatively affected by other compounds in feed and water such as sulfur and molybdenum.
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

NC State News :: NC State News and Information » Study Finds How BPA Affects Gene Expression, Anxiety; Soy Mitigates Effects | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it

"New research led by researchers at North Carolina State University shows that exposure to the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) early in life results in high levels of anxiety by causing significant gene expression changes in a specific region of the brain called the amygdala. The researchers also found that a soy-rich diet can mitigate these effects.

 

“We knew that BPA could cause anxiety in a variety of species, and wanted to begin to understand why and how that happens,” says Dr. Heather Patisaul, Associate Professor of Biology at NC State and lead author of a paper describing the work. BPA is a chemical used in a wide variety of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins, and is used in consumer products such as some food containers."
