Vertebrate gut microbiome often underpins the metabolic capability and provides many beneficial effects on their hosts. However, little was known about how host trophic level influences fish gut microbiota and metabolic activity. In this study, more than 985,000 quality-filtered sequences from 24 16S rRNA libraries were obtained and the results revealed(More)
BACKGROUND Blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) is an herbivorous freshwater fish species native to China and has been recognized as a main aquaculture species in the Chinese freshwater polyculture system with high economic value. Right now, only limited EST resources were available for M. amblycephala. Recent advances in large-scale RNA sequencing(More)
Blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) is an economically important fish species in the Chinese freshwater polyculture system for its delicacy and high economic value. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in regulation of almost all biological processes in eukaryotes. Although previous studies have identified thousands of miRNAs from many species,(More)
In this study, 23 genomic microsatellite DNA markers and 17 express sequence tag (EST)-derived microsatellites were developed and characterized using the fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats (FIASCO) method and data mining from public EST databases of mandarin fish (Siniperca chuatsi). These polymorphic microsatellite markers were then(More)
Tidal estuarine wetlands of China are rich in plant diversity, but several global change drivers, such as species invasion, are currently affecting the biogeochemical cycles of these ecosystems. We seasonally analyzed the carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) concentrations in litters and soils and in leaves, stems, and roots of the C3 invasive(More)
Poecillastra laminaris (Sollas) (Order Tetractinellida, Family Vulcanellidae) is a demosponge widely distributed on seamounts and other habitats around the New Zealand region. In order to investigate its genetic structure and connectivity, ten polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed and tested on all 54 individuals in the NIWA Invertebrate(More)
To investigate the leptin related genes expression patterns and their possible function during the gonadal development in fish, the cDNA and genomic sequences of leptin, leptin receptor (leptinR), and leptin receptor overlapping transcript like-1 (leprotl1) were cloned and their expression levels were quantified in the different gonadal development stages(More)
In order to coordinate and give full play to the multi-function of TCSC, the Improved Analysis Hierarchy Process (IAHP) is proposed to determine optimal installation location of TCSC. This method is the organic combination of fuzzy mathematics, AHP and multi-objective decision theory. Firstly, the triangle fuzzy number based on AHP is used to fuzzy the(More)
By defining the relationship between regular-sampled PWM and space vector PWM (SVPWM), the implied modulating waves in SVPWM technique is identified in this paper. Then a simulation model of SVPWM controlled three-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) is built under Matlab\Simulink based on the explicit modulating waves. During the simulation, various(More)
