Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, an external fish parasite, often causes significant economic damage to the aquaculture industry. Since the use of malachite green was banned, the search of alternative substance to control I. multifiliis infections becomes stringent. In present study, in vitro and in vivo anti-ich efficacies of isopsoralen and psoralidin, two(More)
DNA vaccines are considered to be the most promising method against infectious diseases in the aquaculture industry. In the present study, we investigated the potency of ammonium group-functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in enhancing the transfection and expression efficiency of plasmid DNA (pEGFP-vp5) in Ctenopharyngodon idellus kidney(More)
Disease caused by the parasitic helminths Dactylogyrus spp. results in significant economic damage to the aquaculture industry. Treatment using common chemicals (e.g. formalin) is usually dissatisfactory due to environmental problems, risk of residues, toxicity to fish, and the possibility of anthelmintic resistance. The search for an alternative drug is(More)
Face recognition with occlusion is a challenging problem. Recently, the modular representation based method, i.e., modular linear regression based classification (MLRC) was proposed to deal with this problem. However, MLRC just simply combines the individual decision of each block within an image (based on the min rule) to make final decision. Therefore,(More)
Large-scale biomass estimates are primarily based on the estimation of biomass at the stand level. The accurate estimation of forest biomass at the stand level is vital for regional carbon budgets, estimates of the global carbon cycle, and reports on stock changes required by the Kyoto Protocol. However, currently available stand-level methods do not(More)
Utilization of chemical pesticide to control monogenean diseases is often restricted in many countries due to the development of pesticide resistance and concerns of chemical residues and environmental contamination. Thus, the use of antiparasitic agents from plants has been explored as a possible way for controlling monogenean infections. Extracts from(More)
