Multi-photon excitation microscopy
TLDR
2PE implementations in noninvasive optical bioscopy or laser-based treatments point out to the relevance in clinical applications, and a list of potential applications and variations on the theme is given to offer a starting point for advancing new applications and developments. Expand
Immunolocalization of G‐Protein Alpha Subunits in the Olfactory System of the Cartilaginous Fish Scyliorhinus Canicula
TLDR
The presence and distribution of immunoreactivity for different types of G‐protein alpha subunit were investigated in the olfactory mucosa and Olfactory bulb of the shark Scyliorhinus canicula, and data suggest, in S. caniculas, different olfFactory neuron types send projections to the ofactory bulb with a segregated distribution, as observed in other vertebrates. Expand
Toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles in immune cells of the sea urchin.
TLDR
This is the first study which utilizes the sea urchin as a model organism for biomonitoring the biological impact of NPs and supports the efficacy of the selected biomarkers. Expand
Developmental abnormalities and changes in cholinesterase activity in sea urchin embryos and larvae from sperm exposed to engineered nanoparticles.
TLDR
The sea urchin represents a suitable and sensitive model for testing the toxicity and effects of engineered NPs that are dispersed in sea water and the altered ChE activity may be involved in skeletogenic aberrations. Expand
A neurochemical map of the developing amphioxus nervous system
TLDR
This map is a first step towards a full characterization of the neurotransmitter signature of previously described nerve cell types in the amphioxus CNS, such as motoneurons and interneurons. Expand
Role of GbpA protein, an important virulence-related colonization factor, for Vibrio cholerae's survival in the aquatic environment.
TLDR
It is suggested that the ability of GbpA to colonize human intestinal cells most probably originated from its primary function in the aquatic environment. Expand
The GABAergic‐like system in the marine demosponge Chondrilla nucula
TLDR
This study is the first indication of the existence of the GABA biosynthetic enzyme GAD and of the neurons transporter vGAT in sponges, as well as the first demonstration that the neurotransmitter GABA is released extracellularly. Expand
Swimming behavior regulation by GABAB receptors in Paramecium.
TLDR
These experiments suggest that baclofen modulates CR by a G protein (G(0) or G(1)) mediated inhibition of dihydropyridine-sensible calcium channels, which is related to the regulation of intracellular Ca(2+) levels. Expand
Multidisciplinary screening of toxicity induced by silica nanoparticles during sea urchin development.
TLDR
Through the multidisciplinary approach used in this study SiO2 NPs toxicity in sea urchin offspring could be assessed, and the measured responses are suitable for detecting embryo- and larval- toxicity induced by these NPs. Expand
Exposure of Paracentrotus lividus male gametes to engineered nanoparticles affects skeletal bio-mineralization processes and larval plasticity.
TLDR
The present study suggests that the investigated NPs suspended in seawater interfere with the bio-mineralization processes in marine organisms, and the results of this study offer a new series of specific endpoints for the mechanistic understanding of NP toxicity. Expand
