Probiotic effect in vivo of Roseobacter strain 27-4 against Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum infections in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.) larvae
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the probiotic effect of the marine bacterium Roseobacter strain 27-4 in turbot larvae infected with the pathogen Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum. Initial
Renal catabolism of human glucagon-like peptides 1 and 2.
A significant role for the kidney is demonstrated in the plasma removal of [125I]glucagon-like peptide 1 and [ 125I]GLP-2 by a mechanism that involves glomerular filtration and tubular catabolism.
Comparative Characterization of Complete and Truncated Forms of Lactobacillus amylovorus α-Amylase and Role of the C-Terminal Direct Repeats in Raw-Starch Binding
The fact that AmyAΔ cannot bind or hydrolyze raw starch, demonstrating that the carboxyl-terminal repeating-unit domain of AmyA is required for raw-starch binding activity, is striking.
Characterization of microbial biomasses and amylolytic preparations obtained from mussel processing waste treatment
A strain of Aspergillus oryzae was chosen which allows the simultaneous production of single cell protein and a highly stable amylolytic preparation, and the characteristics of the biomass obtained were shown to be suitable, in principle, for animal feeds.
A model for experimental infections with Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum in first feeding turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.) larvae under hatchery conditions
A reproducible model for in vivo infections of first feeding turbot larvae with the pathogen Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum is described and Mortalities achieved by applying the protocol of infection are reliable, reproducible and adequate for experimental purposes.
Temperature-induced changes of growth and survival in the early development of the seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus
It was demonstrated, within a viable temperature range, the suitability of D° eff as a temperature-independent scale to quantify growth in feeding juveniles but not in starving conditions, and temperatures of 19–20 °C are recommended for the rearing of this species in captivity.
Lactic acid production from mussel processing wastes with an amylolytic bacterial strain
By controlling pH and increasing the initial protein concentration to avoid uncoupling, similar lactic acid production and higher yields than obtained with starch were reached with MPW.
Isolation of Vibrio alginolyticus and Vibrio splendidus from captive-bred seahorses with disease symptoms
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first time that these bacterial species have been associated with disease symptoms in captive-bred seahorses.
Kinetic growth parameters of different amylolytic and non-amylolytic Lactobacillus strains under various salt and pH conditions.
Considering overall performance, 4% salt and pH between 6.0 and 6.6 can be taken as appropriate conditions, for the use of both strains as starters in processes where higher salt concentrations are required.
Phylogenetic characterization and in situ detection of bacterial communities associated with seahorses (Hippocampus guttulatus) in captivity.
This is the first time that bacterial communities associated with healthy seahorses in captivity have been described and it is revealed that Vibrionaceae was the dominant population in Artemia sp.
