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)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to examine the expression levels of microRNA-9 (miR-9) in osteosarcoma tissues and normal bone tissues, and investigate the relationships between miR-9 expression, clinicopathological features and the prognosis of patients with osteosarcoma. METHODS The expression levels of miR-9 in osteosarcoma tissues and(More)
The purpose of this study was to use finite element analysis to compare the biomechanical characteristics after lateral locking plate (LLP) or LLP with a medial anatomical locking plate (LLP-MLP) fixation of proximal humeral fractures with an unstable medial column.First, a 3-dimensional, finite element analysis model was developed. Next, LLP and LLP-MLP(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)
