Macrobrachium rosenbergii is an aquaculture species of global importance whose production has sharply declined since 2005. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in transcribed sequences are likely to have high association with economic traits and are important for marker assisted selection. SNPs were mined in 34 reported transcripts from 4 wild M.(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential utility of chitosan (I) in inhibiting diclofenac sodium (II) release in the gastric environment from a directly compressible tablet formulation. I, subjected to depolymerization to improve its microcrystallinity and subsequent compressibility, was then used to prepare tablets of II. A full-factorial(More)
Chitosan was physicochemically modified for its potential use as a matrix for an implantable antibiotic delivery system that could sustain bactericidal concentrations in the vicinity of an implant or prosthesis. Deacetylation and depolymerization of chitosan were implemented in order to increase the number or accessibility of the reactive amino groups on(More)
Directly compressible controlled-release (CR) theophylline tablet formulations with a non-zero-order drug release were prepared using various grades of Methocels. These tablet formulations were employed in the individualization of therapy with the aid of a pharmacokinetic simulation model developed with STELLA II computer software. In vitro drug release(More)
The decapod crustacean Penaeus monodon survives large fluctuations in salinity through osmoregulation in which Na+/K(+)-ATPase (NKA) activity in the gills plays a central role. Adult P. monodon specimens were gradually acclimatized to 5, 25 and 35 per thousand salinities and maintained for 20 days to observe long-term alterations in NKA expression. Specific(More)
We report a transgenic zebrafish (Danio rerio) designed to respond to heavy metals using a metal-responsive promoter linked to a fluorescent reporter gene (DsRed2). The metallothionein MT-Ia1 promoter containing metal-responsive elements was derived from the Asian green mussel, Perna viridis. The promoter is known to be induced by a broad spectrum of heavy(More)
