Riemerella anatipestifer (RA) is the causative agent of a tagious septicaemic disease especially in ducklings, keys and other birds. The disease accounts for serious nomic losses to the duck industry due to high morbidity mortality, weight loss and carcase condemnations. rently, various antibiotics are used to prevent and trol RA infection in ducks, but(More)
Ammonia is one of major environmental pollutants in the freshwater aquatic system that affects the survival and growth of organisms. In the present study, we investigated the effects of ammonia exposure on apoptosis, oxidative stress and immune response in pufferfish (Takifugu obscurus). Fish were exposed to various concentrations of ammonia (0, 1.43, 3.57,(More)
Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the one of the most common cancers with considerable metastatic potential, explaining the need for new drug candidates that inhibit tumor metastasis. The signal transducers and activators of the transcription 3 (Stat3) signaling pathway has an important role in CRC and has been validated as a promising anticancer target for CRC(More)
To establish a high-efficiency gamma interferon-specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot assay (IFN-γ ELISPOT assay) for detection of tuberculosis (TB), peptides (E6, E7, and C14) and peptide mixtures (E6 plus E7 and E6 plus E7 plus C14) were used to monitor peripheral blood (PBL) samples from patients with pulmonary TB (PTB), as well as control samples.(More)
Water temperature is an important environmental factor in aquaculture farming that affects the survival and growth of organisms. The change in culture water temperature may not only modify various chemical and biological processes but also affect the status of fish populations. In previous studies, high temperature induced apoptosis and oxidative stress.(More)
Waterborne ammonia has become a persistent pollutant of aquatic habitats. The exposure to ammonia stress can reduce growth in a wide range of aquatic organisms. To assess the effect of ammonia exposure on the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factors (GH/IGF) axis, we identified and characterized GHR1, GHR2 and IGF-1 from pufferfish. Comparative analysis(More)
A new alkylamine derivative and a common fatty acid were isolated from Streptomyces sp. YIM 66142. On the basis of spectral data, including HRMS, NMR and 2D NMR, their structures were determined as medelamine C (1) and isomyristic acid (2). The omega-hydroxyl group in structure 1 is rare in a natural alkylamine. The possible biosynthetic pathway in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical efficacy of compound Zaofan pill combined with cyclosporine and androgen for treatment of patients with chronical aplastic anemia(CAA), and its effect on bone marrow microvessel density(MVD) and vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF) of CAA patients. METHODS A total of 76 cases of CAA were randomly divided into(More)
Apoptosis plays a crucial role in many biological processes, including development, cellular homeostasis and immune responses. The BCL-2 family is a key regulator of the mitochondrial response to apoptotic signals in the intrinsic pathway. In this study, we identified and characterized the cDNA and expression pattern of pufferfish BCL-2 (PfBCL-2). The(More)
