V-type H+-ATPase and Na+,K+-ATPase in the gills of 13 euryhaline crabs during salinity acclimation
The hypothesis that V-H+-ATPase plays a crucial role in the freshwater adaptation of crabs is supported by the systemic investigation on 13 euryhaline crabs. Expand
Mitochondria-rich cells in the branchial epithelium of the teleost,Oreochromis mossambicus, acclimated to various hypotonic environments
The morphological alterations of the MR cells correlated with ionic changes in different milieus, indicating that these distinct types of MR cells may play key roles for osmoregulation in hypotonic media. Expand
An outbreak of coxsackievirus A6 hand, foot, and mouth disease associated with onychomadesis in Taiwan, 2010
HFMD patients with CA6 infection experienced symptoms targeting a broader spectrum of skin sites and more profound tissue destruction, i.e., desquamation and nail abnormalities. Expand
Effect of seat surface inclination on postural stability and forward reaching efficiency in children with spastic cerebral palsy.
The results showed that seat inclination affected children's postural stability and the effects were comparable for CP and TD children in all measures except for COP_ML. Expand

The posterior gills play the most important role in osmoregulation in dilute seawater and the increase in Na,K-ATPase activity on the 7th day may be due to its gene transcription and/or mRNA translation. Expand
A Reproductive Toxicology Study of Phenanthrene in Medaka (Oryzias latipes)
Exposing Japanese medaka to water-borne or food-spiked phenanthrene and investigating the chronic effects of the chemical on medaka reproduction showed thatphenanthrene significantly prolonged the time to hatch for embryos, suggesting that theTime to hatch in embryos might be a more sensitive biomarker for environmental contaminants.

Changes of glycogen metabolism in the gills and hepatic tissue of tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) during short-term Cd exposure.
The profile of glycogen metabolism between gills and liver during Cd-exposure stress provide good support to the hypothesis that the mechanism of glycogens metabolism has taken place in gills rather than in liver duringCd exposure. Expand
Functional differentiation in the anterior gills of the aquatic air-breathing fish, Trichogaster leeri
The hypothesis that there are morphological and functional differences between anterior and posterior gill arches within the air-breathing Trichogaster leeri is supported. Expand
The Reproductive Behaviour and Mate Choice of the Fiddler Crab (Uca Lactea Lactea) in Mid-Taiwan
The prominent display equipment, the major cheliped, and the conspicuous lateral waving as courtship behaviour were not essential to a male's mating success, while stroking at a female's burrow entrance was, while male body size seems important in determining whether intruders can be expelled successfully. Expand
Mechanism of concentration-dependent induction of heme oxygenase-1 by resveratrol in human aortic smooth muscle cells.
It is suggested that resveratrol-mediated HO-1 expression occurs, at least in part, through the NF-kappaB pathway, which might contribute to resver atrol's vascular-protective effect at physiological concentrations after moderate red wine consumption. Expand
