n-3 Polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) contribute to preventing many types of diseases, including cancer; however, a high n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-6 PUFAs) intake in modern diets has the opposite effect. Previously, we developed a transgenic mouse model that expresses a gene, fat-1, encoding an n-3 fatty acid desaturase, which converts n-6(More)
Dominant-negative inhibition of glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide impairs function of b cells in transgenic pigs Dear Editor: Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and proglucagon product glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and their corresponding receptors promote secretion of glucose-dependent insulin [1] and may be responsible for up(More)
A facile and economic route has been presented for mass production of micro/nanostructured hematite microcrystals based on the wet chemical controllable method. The as-prepared samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. The results showed that the(More)
We conducted laboratory experiments with early life stages of kaluga sturgeon, Huso dauricus, from the middle reach of the Amur River to quantify ontogenetic behavior and compare their behavior with similar laboratory data collected previously on young kaluga from the Amur River. Our hatchling free embryos initiated an intense downstream migration that(More)
