Influence of a probiotic adjunct culture of Enterococcus faecium on the quality of cheddar cheese.
Findings indicate that the presence of the PR88 adjunct strain in Cheddar cheese at levels of >/=10(8) cfu/g may positively influence Cheddar flavor.
The Flashlight Fish Anomalops katoptron Uses Bioluminescent Light to Detect Prey in the Dark
These experiments performed in a coral reef tank show that Anomalops katoptron use bioluminescent illumination to detect planktonic prey and that the blink frequency of A. kat optron light organs follow an exogenous control by the ambient light.
Activation of odorant receptor in colorectal cancer cells leads to inhibition of cell proliferation and apoptosis
The analysis and functional characterization of ectopically expressed human olfactory receptors (ORs) is becoming increasingly important, as many ORs have been identified in several healthy and cancerous tissues and the findings provide the basis for alternative treatments of colorectal cancer.
Analysis of the Territorial Aggressive Behavior of the Bioluminescent Flashlight Fish Photoblepharon steinitzi in the Red Sea
The data show that the intensity of displayed aggression potential in P. steinitzi depends on the signal properties of the intraspecific intruder, and a constant glowing light organ dummy or a fish dummy simulating an intruder increases the aggression level in the fish.
Social signaling via bioluminescent blinks determines nearest neighbor distance in schools of flashlight fish Anomalops katoptron
Blink frequencies are modified by changes in the occlusion time and are increased from day to night and during avoidance behavior, while group cohesion is higher with increasing blink frequencies, suggesting that specific blink patterns in schooling flashlight fish A. katoptron define nearest neighbor distance and determine intraspecific communication.
Social signaling via bioluminescent blinks drives schooling behavior in the flashlight fish Anomalops katoptron
It is suggested that visually transmitted information via specific blink patterns determine intraspecific communication and group cohesion in schooling A. katoptron.
