To analyze the effect of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) 118 on fish bone metabolism, we examined osteoclastic and osteoblastic activities, as well as plasma calcium levels, in the scales of PCB (118)-injected goldfish. In addition, effect of PCB (118) on osteoclasts and osteoblasts was investigated in vitro. Immature goldfish, in which the endogenous(More)
OBJECTIVE Surgical indication was determined by lung biopsy in 91 patients with secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) and severe pulmonary hypertension > 70 mm Hg of pulmonary arterial peak pressure and/or pulmonary vascular resistance of > 8 U/m(2). METHODS AND RESULTS Pulmonary vascular disease (PVD) in ASD was classified into four types: (1)(More)
The caudal part of the corpus cerebelli of Nile tilapia can be divided into dorsal and ventral regions. The granule cell layer of the dorsal (dGL) and ventral (vGL) regions of the caudal corpus cerebelli is known to receive indirect inputs from the telencephalon relayed by the nucleus paracommissuralis. The descending pathways are topographically organized,(More)
To satisfy the world’s growing need for animal protein, it is important to develop or select fish species which are suitable for optimal cultivation in closed recirculating aquaculture systems (CRASs) as an environment-friendly aquaculture technology for providing safe and secure aquaculture food products. We have developed an ‘all fish’ growth-hormone(More)
