BACKGROUND Light has significant effect on the growth and development of Saccharina japonica, but there are limited reports on blue light mediated physiological responses and molecular mechanism. In this study, high-throughput paired-end RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq) technology was applied to transcriptomes of S. japonica exposed to blue light and darkness,(More)
Ultrasound combined with endogenous protoporphyrin IX derived from 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA-SDT) is known to induce apoptosis in multiple cancer cells and macrophages. Persistent retention of macrophages in the plaque has been implicated in the pathophysiology and progression of atherosclerosis. Here we investigated the effects of inhibition of(More)
The full-length cDNA sequence (3219 base pairs) of the trehalose-6-phosphate synthase gene of Porphyra yezoensis (PyTPS) was isolated by RACE-PCR and deposited in GenBank (NCBI) with the accession number AY729671. PyTPS encodes a protein of 908 amino acids before a stop codon, and has a calculated molecular mass of 101,591 Daltons. The PyTPS protein(More)
Photosynthetic stramenopile have chloroplasts of secondary endosymbiotic origin and are significant as aquatic primary productivity and biomass production. In marine environments, many photosynthetic stramenopiles utilize blue light to regulate growth, development, and organelle movement. Aureochrome (AUREO) is a new type blue light photoreceptor specific(More)
Population structure and genetic diversity of marine organisms in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean exhibited complex patterns. Saccharina japonica is a commercially and ecologically important kelp species widely distributed along the coast of Japan Sea. However, it is still poorly known about population genetics and phylogeographic patterns of wild S.(More)
Illumina HiSeq 2000 next-generation sequencing (NGS) was used on Saccharina japonica specimens to develop SSRs from high-quality genomic sequences. There were 181,595 SSR loci identified using the MISA program. SSR repeat types are plentiful in genomic sequences of S. japonica, with the most abundant types being mononucleotides (54 %) and trinucleotides (26(More)
Necroptosis, or programmed necrosis, contributes to the formation of necrotic cores in atherosclerotic plaque in animal models. However, whether inhibition of necroptosis ameliorates atherosclerosis is largely unknown. In this study, we demonstrated that necroptosis occurred in clinical atherosclerotic samples, suggesting that it may also play an important(More)
Two simple sequence repeats from chloroplast DNA (cpSSRs) and two mitochondrial DNA markers (rpl6-rps2 and trnW-trnI) were developed and used to investigate inheritance patterns of chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA in Saccharina japonica. Haplotypes were tested in 76 progeny sporophytes from two sets of reciprocal crosses between male and female(More)
In order to study the effect of temperature, irradiance, and salinity on the asexual reproduction of Caulerpa lentillifera, we conducted the indoor culture to study these factor effects on the regeneration of C. lentillifera, together with the measurement of photosynthetic parameters such as chlorophyll content, fluorescence characteristics, and rbcL(More)
