Penaeus monodon (10.56 +/- 0.71 g) exposed individually to 0.026 (control), 0.774, 3.646, 7.004, 21.234 and 36.079 mM nitrate in 25 ppt seawater were examined for nitrate accumulation in hemolymph, gill, eyestalk, heart, foregut, midgut, hepatopancreas and muscle after 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 h, respectively. Concentration of nitrate in the tissues increased(More)
Penaeus japonicus (12.83 +/- 1.24 g) which were exposed individually to 0.002 (control), 0.076, 0.362, 0.719 and 1.433 mM nitrite at 30 ppt of salinity were examined for hemolymph ammonia, urea and nitrite, and nitrogenous excretion after 3, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h, respectively. Hemolymph nitrite and hemolymph urea increased directly with ambient nitrite and(More)
Penaeus monodon (12.13+/-1.14 g) exposed individually to six different nitrite and nitrate regimes (0.002, 0.36 and 1.46 mM nitrite combined with 0.005 and 7.32 mM nitrate), at a salinity of 25 ppt, were examined for hemolymph nitrogenous compounds and whole shrimp's nitrogen excretions after 24 h. Nitrogen excretion increased directly with ambient nitrite(More)
TNFα is one of the initial and important mediators to activate downstream signaling pathways by binding to trimerized TNFα receptors (TNFR), and thus is an ideal drug target for cancer therapy. Taking advantage of intrinsic homotimerization of the globular domain of adiponectin (gAD), we have developed a novel TNFα antagonist, the trimerized fusion protein(More)
