Identification and characterization of foliar polyphenolic composition in sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas L.) genotypes.
Trials over two years were conducted using 1389 sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas L.) genotypes collected from all over the world to characterize the polyphenolic composition in sweetpotato leaves. WideExpand

Fructose-fed streptozotocin-injected rat: an alternative model for type 2 diabetes.
The main objective of the study was to develop an alternative non-genetic rat model for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats (190.56 ± 23.60 g) were randomly divided into sixExpand

The ryanodine receptor calcium channel of beta-cells: molecular regulation and physiological significance.
The list of Ca(2+) channels involved in stimulus-secretion coupling in beta-cells is increasing. In this respect the roles of the voltage-gated Ca(2+) channels and IP(3) receptors are well accepted.Expand

In situ activation of the type 2 ryanodine receptor in pancreatic beta cells requires cAMP-dependent phosphorylation.
Molecular mechanisms that regulate in situ activation of ryanodine receptors (RY) in different cells are poorly understood. Here we demonstrate that caffeine (10 mM) released Ca2+ from theExpand

Seed supply for coastal brackishwater shrimp farming: environmental impacts and sustainability.
Globally, shrimp farming has been a significant agro-based economic activity since the early 1970s. Because it offered a huge immediate economic return, shrimp farming showed a booming expansion andExpand

A simple filtration method to remove plankton-associated Vibrio cholerae in raw water supplies in developing countries.
Plankton to which cells of Vibrio cholerae O1 and/or O139 were attached was introduced into 0.5% Instant Ocean microcosms maintained at 25 degrees C. The bulk of the plankton and associatedExpand

Waste loading in shrimp and fish processing effluents: potential source of hazards to the coastal and nearshore environments.
On average, only 30-40% of the global fishery production is consumed fresh and the rest 60-70% is processed for human consumption and other purposes. Although the proportion of the total fisheryExpand
