Acrosome reaction is crucial to the penetration of spermatozoa through the zona pellucida (ZP). Glycosylation of ZP glycoproteins is important in spermatozoa-ZP interaction. Human ZP glycoprotein-3 (ZP3) is believed to initiate acrosome reaction. Recently, human ZP4 was also implicated in inducing acrosome reaction. These studies were based on recombinant(More)
BACKGROUND Fertilization starts with the binding of the spermatozoa to the zona pellucida (ZP) of the oocyte. Such binding is a carbohydrate-mediated event and consists of a series of tightly regulated events. Molecular interactions between spermatozoon and ZP in human are not well characterized due to limited availability of oocytes for research. Our(More)
Clinical research indicates that negative calcium balance is associated with low bone mass, rapid bone loss, and high fracture rates. However, some studies revealed that not only calcium is involved in bone strengthening as risk factor of fracture osteoporosis. Thus, in this report, the difference of metallic and nonmetallic elements in osteoporosis and(More)
Spindles in anaphase of dividing primary spermatocytes of the grasshopper, Mongolotettix japonicus, were examined with a sensitive polarizing microscope combined with a time-lapse video recorder and a cinematographic apparatus. The pole-to-pole distance of the meiotic spindles was increased and the kinetochore fibers were more birefringent in the presence(More)
When developing sea urchin eggs were treated with sea water containing 40% D2O (D2O-SW) at the 8-cell stage, the micromere formation was delayed and micromeres were larger than those seen in the control. But eggs returned to normal artificial sea water (NASW) at the 16- to 32-cell stage did not form abnormal spicules in larvae of Pseudocentrotus depressus.(More)
Lombok Strait has abundance of Sardine, Sardinella lemuru, which contains such high amount of omega-3 fatty acid (omega-3). However, the genetic relationship of S. lemuru with other commercial fish rich in omega-3 has not been widely studied yet. Studies on genetic proximity of S. lemuru with the other marine fish using 12S rRNA gene is very important in(More)
Bagasse has a potential as natural resource of nanosilica. Nanosilica biosynthetic production method is better than chemical or physical methods. The aim of this study is to determine the potential of Lactobacillus bulgaricus in nanosilica synthesis, the effect of the long incubation, and the effect of freeze drying to the nanosilica quality. The method(More)
