Anisakis spp. larvae in three mesopelagic and bathypelagic fish species of the central Mediterranean Sea.
TLDR
The study performed with fishes in the central Mediterranean Sea confirmed the role of lanternfishes as paratenic hosts for Anisakis spp. Expand
Mediterranean triton Charonia lampas lampas (Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda): report on captive breeding
TLDR
Spawning behaviour and larval development of the triton was described and it would be desirable the creation of captivity breeding programs, in order to allow the Two females and a male triton of Charonia lampas lampas (Linnaeus, 1758) were collected. Expand
Immunohistochemical localization of BDNF‐, TrkB‐ and TrkA‐like proteins in the teleost lateral line system
TLDR
The present results suggest that mechanoreceptive hair cells, as well as supporting cells, in the lateral line system are under the control of the BDNF–TrkB‐like complex, and probably of ligands of TrkA‐like receptors. Expand
The Tongue Dorsal Surface in Fish: A Comparison Among Three Farmed Species
TLDR
The results show the important role of the fish tongue in the food ingestion process, demonstrating the interaction of food processing, taste and morphological characteristics. Expand
Anion exchange through band 3 protein in canine leishmaniasis at different stages of disease
TLDR
Band 3 protein-mediated anion transport is reduced by oxidative conditions associated to leishmaniasis, putatively via phosphorylative pathways; band 3 protein efficiency may account for canine leish maniasis development; and the assessment of band 3protein function may represent an additional tool for canine Leishmania infantum diagnosis and monitoring of its development.

Colonization of floats from submerged derelict fishing gears by four protected species of deep-sea corals and barnacles in the Strait of Messina (central Mediterranean Sea).
TLDR
This paper observed for the first time the colonization of rafting floats from abandoned, lost or derelict fishing gears (ALDFG) by the four protected deep-sea species: Errina aspera, Desmophyllum pertusum, Madrepora oculata Pachylasma giganteum and Megabalanus tulipiformis. Expand
Low frequency dielectric characteristics of human blood: A non-equilibrium thermodynamic approach
Abstract In this paper we apply some recent results of non-equilibrium thermodynamic to human blood. In particular we focus our attention on dielectric α-dispersion region which presents some notExpand
Expression of ghrelin and leptin in the chemosensory system of adult zebrafish.
TLDR
The results demonstrated the presence of immunoreaction for all antibodies used in the zebrafish chemosensory organs even if with different distribution, and IR was observed for ghrelin in the olfactory rosette while IR for leptin was found in the Olfactory Rosette. Expand
Structural and ultrastructural comparison of photophores of two species of deep-sea fishes: Argyropelecus hemigymnus and Maurolicus muelleri
TLDR
The structure of the photophores of two species of deep-sea fishes from the Strait of Messina, Argyropelecus hemigymnus and Maurolicus muelleri, was examined and indicated a marked similarity between them. Expand
