cDNA Cloning and Characterization of a Secreted Luciferase from the Luminous Japanese Ostracod, Cypridina noctiluca
TLDR
The cDNA of a new secreted luciferase from the ostracod Cypridina noctiluca, which inhabits the coast of Japan, is cloned and it is suggested that C. noctILucaLuciferase is a highly potent reporter enzyme for real-time and continuous monitoring of gene expression in living cells.
Gonadogenesis and Sex Succession in the Protogynous Wrasse, Cirrhilabrus temmincki, in Suruga Bay, Central Japan
TLDR
The present paper deals with gonadal formation and sex succession based on histological observations in the wrasse, Cirrhilabrus temmincki Bleeker, from Suruga Bay, and the role and significance of this occurrence in hermaphroditism are discussed.
Gonadal morphology of threadfin breams,Nemipterus bathybius andN. virgatus: Evidence of rudimentary hermaphroditism
TLDR
The dorsal duct and its lamellar projections are remnants of the ovarian cavityoviduct system and ovigerous lamellae ofThe ovarian portion of the gonad, and that these two nemipterid species are rudimentary hermaphrodites in which males have bisexual gonads of the delimited type in their juvenile stages.
Studies on the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Foods (VII)
TLDR
The relationship of organochlorine pesticide residue levels in mothers' milk and some foods (meat, dairy products, and vegetables) were examined and the levels of BHC and other pesticide residues were not so different in both areas.
Hermaphroditism and sexual function inCirrhitichthys aureus and the other Japanese hawkfishes (Cirrhitidae: Teleostei)
TLDR
It is established that normal functional hermaphroditism occurred in the four other cirrhitid species, which showed almost identical gonadal characteristics toC.
