Decrease in Membrane Phospholipid Unsaturation Induces Unfolded Protein Response*
It is shown that stearoyl-CoA desaturase 1 (SCD1) knockdown increased the amount of saturated fatty acids and decreased that of monounsaturated fatty acids in phospholipids without affecting the amount or the composition of free fatty acid and induced unfolded protein response (UPR).
Membrane lipid saturation activates IRE1α without inducing clustering
Results suggest membrane lipid saturation, and unfolded proteins activate the UPR through different mechanisms, as compared with conventional ER stressors that cause the accumulation of unfolded proteins such as tunicamycin and thapsigargin.

Four species of the genus Grandidierella were collected from estuaries and coastal area in Osaka Bay and the northern part of the Kii Channel, central Japan and described and validness of the three brackish species is examined by crossing experiments.
Species of the Genus Kamaka (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Kamakidae) from Japan : Kamaka biwae and K. morinoi sp. nov.
The distributions of the two species suggest that K. biwae speciated from K. morinoi or that they share a common ancestor.
Growth of Swimming Crabs Portunus (Portunus) trituberculatus in Osaka Bay.
To estimate the growth of swimming crabs Portunus (Portunus) trituberculatus in Osaka Bay, the carapace widths of juvenile crabs in shallow areas at Tarui and trawl-caught crabs at Izumisano fishing
Species of the Genus Kamaka (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Kamakidae) from Japan : Kamaka excavata sp. nov. and K. kuthae
Male gnathopod 2 of this new species has a wide coxal plate, a long, acute process on article 6, and a posteriorly excavated article 7, and in these respects is dissimilar to those of other Kamaka species.
