Specific complex interactions between soil bacteria belonging to Rhizobium, Sinorhizobium, Mesorhizobium, Phylorhizobium, Bradyrhizobium and Azorhizobium commonly known as rhizobia, and their host leguminous plants result in development of root nodules. Nodules are new organs that consist mainly of plant cells infected with bacteroids that provide the host(More)
Many industrial and agricultural chemicals (including heavy metals and alkylphenols) present in the environment have adverse effects on the reproductive function in fish. Three studies were conducted to assess toxicity of these chemicals towards reproduction of freshwater fish. It was shown that heavy metals added to the diets accumulate in brain tissue of(More)
Surface expression of exopolysaccharides (EPS) in gram-negative bacteria depends on the activity of proteins found in the cytoplasmic membrane, the periplasmic space, and the outer membrane. pssTNOP genes identified in Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii strain TA1 encode proteins that might be components of the EPS polymerization and secretion system. In(More)
The effect of Ovaprim (salmon GnRH analogue and a dopamine antagonist) treatment on the quantity and quality of smelt (Osmerus eperlanus L.) sperm was studied in relation to time after hormonal stimulation. Sperm was obtained at 0, 24, 48 and 72 h after treatment (n=13/each time point). Computer Assisted Sperm Analysis (CASA) was used to evaluate sperm(More)
A total of 16 Pasteurella dagmatis strains, including 11 feline and 4 canine isolates as well as one strain isolated from a tiger, were analyzed using partial 16S rRNA and rpoB gene sequence comparison. Phylogenetic studies based on both genes revealed that the population of P. dagmatis recovered from cats in Poland differs markedly from canine strains,(More)
The effect of supplemented commercial diets with crystalline l-tryptophan (TRP—5, 10 and 20 g TRP kg−1) on cannibalism, survival and growth parameters of pikeperch post-larvae (Sander lucioperca) was evaluated. Fifteen-day-old pikeperch larvae (mean weight—6.8 mg) were reared during the next 28 days (20.5 °C, 16L:8D) in glass aquaria in a recirculating(More)
BACKGROUND Endometritis is a common problem in a broodmare practice, often leading to infertility. The diagnosis is based on several methods such as cytology, bacteriology and histopathology; however the outcome of these methods may be inconclusive even when used together. The objectives of this study were: (1) to investigate the usefulness of acute phase(More)
The effect of supplemented commercial diets with diethylstilbestrol (DES—15, 30 and 60 mg kg−1) and 17 β-estradiol (E2—30 and 60 mg kg−1), two chemicals commonly used in sex reversal procedure in fish, on survival and growth parameters of juvenile European catfish (Silurus glanis) was evaluated. During the two experiments, lasting 28 days each, fish were(More)
