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 Plate fixation is the gold standard for diaphyseal fracture management, and the anterolateral approach is widely used by reconstructive surgeons. However, the outcomes of humeral shaft fracture fixation using a medial approach are rarely reported. The aim of this study is to explore the management and outcomes of humeral mid-shaft fractures fixed(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 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)
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)
Excess fluoride intake could induce apoptosis in the cells. As an essential micronutrient and cytoprotectant, zinc is involved in many types of apoptosis. Here, we studied the effects of zinc and ZIP1 on fluoride-induced apoptosis in mouse MC3T3-E1 cells and examined the underlying molecular mechanisms. Our study found that fluoride not only inhibited cell(More)
No-tillage (NT) has revolutionized agricultural systems because it has potential benefits including soil conservation and reduced production costs though saving in fuel, equipment, and labor. Soil quality is of great importance in determining the sustainability of land management systems, and soil microbial properties are becoming increasingly used to(More)
