Optimum dietary taurine level in casein-based diet for juvenile red sea bream Pagrus major
It can be inferred that the optimal dietary taurine requirement of juvenile red sea bream is 0.5% on a dry weight basis, and that the supplementation of t aurine in the diet not only improves the growth but also increases hepatic lipid levels of red Sea bream juveniles. Expand
Taurine is an essential nutrient for yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata fed non-fish meal diets based on soy protein concentrate
The requirement of dietary taurine in yellowtail fed a non-fish meal (FM) diet based on soy protein concentrate (SPC) was examined by a feeding trial and tissue tauri concentration of the NTS group was significantly lower than that of the SPC group. Expand
Comparison of taurine biosynthesis ability between juveniles of Japanese flounder and common carp
It is indicated that while taurine is essential for growth of JF, it is not essential for the growth of CC. Expand
Efficacy of taurine supplementation for preventing green liver syndrome and improving growth performance in yearling red sea bream Pagrus major fed low-fishmeal diet
The results indicate that green liver appearance and inferior feed performances of red sea bream fed the low-FM diet without taurine supplementation were caused by dietary taurines deficiency, and indicate the requirement of t aurine supplementation to low- FM diets for red sea Bream. Expand
Structures and Phytotoxicity of Metabolites from Valsa ceratosperma
Valsa ceratosperma, which is the pathogenic fungus of apple canker, was grown in a synthetic medium. The neutral extract from the culture filtrate was chromatographed on a silica gel column to giveExpand
Studies on the green liver in cultured red sea bream fed low level and non-fish meal diets: Relationship between hepatic taurine and biliverdin levels
The data indicate that feeding of substitute protein diets did not induce any cholestatic hepatobiliary obstructions and that the low hepatic taurine level was one of the probable factors responsible for the occurrence of green liver in red sea bream fed substituteprotein diets. Expand
Hemolytic suppression roles of taurine in yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata fed non-fishmeal diet based on soybean protein
Taurine plays a role in hemolytic suppression through osmoregulation and biomembrane stabilization in fish and it is suggested that yellowtail requires dietary taurine as an essential nutrition for maintaining physiological condition normally. Expand
Determination of hepatic cysteinesulfinate decarboxylase activity in fish by means of OPA-prelabeling and reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic separation
An analytical method is developed for determining the cysteinesulfinate decarboxylase activity in fish by means of the OPA-prelabeling and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) because this enzyme is known to play a regulatory role in the biosynthesis of taurine in mammals.

Supplemental effect of bile salts to soybean meal-based diet on growth and feed utilization of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss
A feeding experiment was conducted to evaluate the supplemental effect of bile salts to a defatted soybean meal-based non-fish meal diet for rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. A fish meal-based dietExpand
Chemical nursing: phytosulfokine improves genetic transformation efficiency by promoting the proliferation of surviving cells on selective media
Chemical nursing using PSK shows promise as a tool for basic research in plant biology and biotechnological applications and in the recovery of antibiotic-resistant cells. Expand
