Histological development of the digestive tract and specific activities of three digestive enzymes (trypsin, alkaline phosphatase, and pepsin) were studied in rock bream Oplegnathus fasciatus from hatching to 50 days after hatching (DAH). At hatching, the digestive tract appeared as an undifferentiated straight tube and differentiated into the buccopharynx,(More)
The present study was to evaluate the effects of six antioxidants on frozen-thawed sperm motility, viability, membrane integrity and mitochondrial function in red seabream (Pagrus major) by computer-assisted sperm analysis system and flow cytometry, respectively. All the parameters tested in this study were determined using one-way ANOVA and identified(More)
As a flatfish, the turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) is one of the most important farmed fish species with great commercial value, which has a strong sexual dimorphism on growth rate and sexual maturity. In this study, using histology, the basic information on proliferation and migration of germ cells and early gonadal development during sex differentiation in(More)
The present study obtained a germ cell-specific marker dead end (dnd) in olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) named Podnd. The tissue-specific expressions of Podnd transcripts were present in testis and ovary but were not detectable in other somatic tissues detected. SISH showed that Podnd expressed only in germ cells at different developmental stages(More)
This study investigated the effects of long-term heat exposure on Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) and its hybrids (P. olivaceus ♀ × summer flounder Paralichthys dentatus ♂). From 24 ± 0.5 °C, temperature was increased by 1 ± 0.5 °C in a day and was kept at that temperature for 5 days before next rise. Cumulative survival rate (CSR), cumulative(More)
