Condition status and parasite infection of Neogobius kessleri and N. melanostomus (Gobiidae) in their native and non-native area of distribution of the Danube River
TLDR
Differences in success of the introduction and establishment in new areas between the two fish species may be associated with a relatively low parasite infection rate and a higher gonadosomatic index in non-native populations of N. kessleri. Expand
Biotransformation of PCBs by plants and bacteria - : consequences of plant-microbe interactions
TLDR
The study shows the possibility of additional metabolic interactions between bacteria and plants in contaminated environment on level of their intermediates and their transformation and gives more detailed information about abilities of biological systems to metabolise original xenobiotics and also their intermediate and products.

Parasite fauna of native and non-native populations of Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) (Gobiidae) in the longitudinal profile of the Danube River
TLDR
Parasite fauna of round goby Neogobius melanostomus in the Danube River was investigated in both the native range and the non-native range of its distribution during 2005 and 2006 to identify possible changes in parasite community associated with the introduction of a host into the new environment.

Ability of bacterial biphenyl dioxygenases from Burkholderia sp. LB400 and Comamonas testosteroni B-356 to catalyse oxygenation of ortho-hydroxychlorobiphenyls formed from PCBs by plants.
TLDR
The fact that metabolites generated by both enzymes were identical for all three hydroxychlorobiphenyls tested; exclude any other mode of attack of these compounds by LB400 BPDOs than the ortho-meta oxygenation. Expand
Phytoremediation—Biological Cleaning of a Polluted Environment
TLDR
The studies of heavy metal uptake improvement or studies of the PCB conversion, which include in-vitro screening of plant species, analysis of the products, evaluation of their toxicity and field plots, and also studies of enzymes and cloning of foreign genes into plants are illustrated. Expand
Quadriacanthus species (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) from catfishes (Teleostei: Siluriformes) in eastern Africa: new species, new records and first insights into interspecific genetic relationships
BackgroundAfrican catfishes of the families Bagridae and Clariidae are known to be parasitized with monogeneans of Quadriacanthus Paperna, 1961 (Dactylogyridae). The genus remains taxonomicallyExpand
9-[2-(phosphonomethoxy)ethyl]-2,6-diaminopurine (PMEDAP)--a potential drug against hematological malignancies--induces apoptosis.
TLDR
PMEDAP application induces apoptosis in in vivo growing lymphomas, and the antitumor effect of PMEDAP lasts only during the administration of the drug. Expand
Diversity of monogeneans and tapeworms in cypriniform fishes across two continents.
TLDR
It is suggested that future research efforts be focussed on cypriniforms in order to obtain reliable data for robust assessments of parasite species richness and phylogenies, to assess host-parasite coevolution and to reveal fish biogeography. Expand
