We have identified a second form of the type-II neuropeptide encoding a molt inhibiting hormone-like (MeeMIH-B) neuropeptide. MeeMIH-B showed only a 70% amino acid identity to the MIH-A (formerly MIH) isolated from the same species, suggesting a possible different function of the deduced neuropeptide. Like other neuropeptide members of the CHH family, the(More)

A reovirus, designated mud crab reovirus (MCRV), associated with large economic losses was recently isolated from marine cultured mud crab, Scylla serrata, in southern China. The complete viral particle is 70 nm in diameter, icosahedral and non-enveloped. The virus infects connective tissue cells of the hepatopancreas, gills and intestine in mud crab and(More)
Methylfarnesoate (MF), an analogue of the insect juvenile hormone III, has been implicated to play a vital role in the regulation of the growth and reproductive development in crustaceans. Farnesoic acid O-methyltransferase (FAMeT) is the key enzyme involved in catalyzing the final step in the MF biosynthetic pathway. In this study, we report the cloning(More)
OBJECTIVE A multivariate logistic regression analysis model for predicting ectopic pregnancy in women with pregnancy of unknown location was designed and evaluated clinically. METHODS Endometrial thickness, symmetry, resonance, pattern of echogenicity, helicine artery blood flow and blood flow resistance index (RI) in 129 patients with suspected early(More)
BACKGROUND Hippocampal volume reductions in major depression have been frequently reported. However, evidence for functional abnormalities in the same region in depression has been less clear. We investigated hippocampal function in depression using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and neuropsychological tasks tapping spatial memory function,(More)
