Morphology and morphogenesis of Apoholosticha sinica n. g., n. sp. (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia), with consideration of its systematic position among urostylids.
This paper investigates the morphology, morphogenesis and SSU rRNA gene-based phylogeny of Apoholosticha sinica n. g., n. sp., isolated from mangrove wetland in Shenzhen, southern China. The newExpand

A molecular phylogenetic investigation of Pseudoamphisiella and Parabirojimia (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea), two genera with ambiguous systematic positions.
The gene coding for the small subunit ribosomal RNA molecule was sequenced in three marine spirotrichs: Pseudoamphisiella lacazei, P. alveolata, and Parabirojimia similis, the systematic positions ofExpand

Utility of combining morphological characters, nuclear and mitochondrial genes: An attempt to resolve the conflicts of species identification for ciliated protists.
Ciliates comprise a highly diverse protozoan lineage inhabiting all biotopes and playing crucial roles in regulating microbial food webs. Nevertheless, subtle morphological differences and tiny sizesExpand

Phylogenetic analysis and taxonomic distinction of six genera of pathogenic scuticociliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora) inferred from small-subunit rRNA gene sequences.
Pathogenic scuticociliates, which are common in the haemolymph or tissues of maricultured animals and often cause serious diseases, are a species-rich assemblage with mostly unresolved systematicExpand

The Venus flytrap attracts insects by the release of volatile organic compounds
Does Dionaea muscipula, the Venus flytrap, use a particular mechanism to attract animal prey? This question was raised by Charles Darwin 140 years ago, but it remains unanswered. This study testedExpand

Morphology and Phylogeny of Two New Pleurostomatid Ciliates, Epiphyllum shenzhenense n. sp. and Loxophyllum spirellum n. sp. (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from A Mangrove Wetland, South China
ABSTRACT. The morphology, infraciliature, and small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene sequences of two new pleurostomatid ciliates, Epiphyllum shenzhenense n. sp. and Loxophyllum spirellum n. sp., isolatedExpand

Blood chemical changes and renal histological alterations induced by gentamicin in rats.
Gentamicin is an effective widely used antibiotic, but the risk of nephrotoxicity and oxidative damage limit its long-term use. Hence, the current study aims to elucidate such hazardous effects. ToExpand
