In this study, the oxidative stress induced by deca-polybromodiphenyl ether (BDE-209) was investigated in livers of Carassius auratus. Six groups of fish were exposed to blank and 0, 0.004, 0.04, 0.4, 4 μM BDE-209 (in 0.1% DMSO) for 1, 4, 7, 10, 13 d, respectively. The following oxidative stress markers were analyzed: reduced glutathione (GSH), glutathione(More)
This study evaluated the effects of β-diketone antibiotics (DKAs) on the development of embryo-larval zebrafish (Danio rerio). When exposure to DKAs, developmental malformations, such as hatching delay, curved body axis, pericardial edema, uninflated swim bladder and yolk sac edema, were observed at 120 h postfertilization (hpf). The estimated 120 hpf(More)
β-Diketone antibiotics (DKAs) can produce chronic toxicity in aquatic ecosystems due to their pseudo-persistent in the environment. In this study, after long-term DKA exposure to zebrafish (Danio rerio), 47 protein spots had greater than 2-fold differential expression as compared to the control; there were 26 positive proteins with 14 up-regulated and 12(More)
Transcriptome analysis is important for interpreting the functional elements of the genome and revealing the molecular constituents of cells and tissues. Herein, differentially transcribed genes were identified by deep sequencing after zebrafish (Danio rerio) were exposed to β-diketone antibiotics (DKAs); 23,129 and 23,550 mapped genes were detected in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the polymorphism and forensic efficiency values of STR loci D12S391/D18S865 METHODS Population studies on D12S391 and D18S865 were carried out in a sample of 454 unrelated Wenzhou Han individuals using PCR followed by PAGE and silver stain detection. RESULTS 11/7 alleles and 50/21 genotypes of D12S391/D18S865 were respectively(More)
AIMS Reproductive endocrine disorder induced by negative energy balance is very common in recent years. But underlying mechanism of reproductive disorders still remains elusive. It is reported that leptin/leptinR-kisspeptin/kiss1r system plays a critical role in reproductive field. Therefore, this study was to determine the role of leptin/leptinR in the(More)
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) accounts for 12 to 16 % of lung neoplasms and has a high rate of metastasis. The present study demonstrates the antiproliferative effect of retinoic acid amide in vitro and in vivo against human lung cancer cells. The results from MTT assay showed a significant growth inhibition of six tested lung cancer cell lines and(More)
The toxicity of β-diketone antibiotics (DKAs) to larval and adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) was investigated by miRNA sequencing and bioinformatics analyses. In control and DKA-exposed groups, 215 differentially expressed miRNAs were screened, and 4076 differential target genes were predicted. Among 51 co-differentially expressed genes, 45 were annotated in(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expressions and functions of the kisspeptin/kiss1r system and GnRH in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (HAN) and the influence of the kisspeptin/kiss1r system on the hypothalamic-pituitary-testis (HPT) axis in the rat models of diet-induced obesity. METHODS Ninety newborn SD male rats were randomly assigned to receive normal diet(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have attracted considerable research interest, but so far no data are available on the roles of lncRNAs and their target genes under chronic β-diketone antibiotic (DKAs) exposure to zebrafish (Danio rerio). Herein, we identified 1.66, 3.07 and 3.36×104 unique lncRNAs from the 0, 6.25 and 12.5mg/L DKA treatment groups,(More)
