Fe-biofortified Myanmar rice has the potential to reduce Fe-deficiency anemia in millions of Myanmar people without changing food habits and without introducing additional costs.
Growth and reproductive biology of the small penaeid shrimp Trachysalambria curvirostris in Tokyo Bay
The growth and reproductive biology of the penaeid shrimp Trachysalambria curvirostris in Tokyo Bay, Japan, is investigated by monthly bottom-trawl surveys and the observation of asynchronous development of oocytes in the ovary suggests that multiple spawning by individual females may occur during the reproductive season.

It is suggested that OsYSL16 plays a role in the allocation of iron(III)-deoxymugineic acid via the vascular bundles, which is similar to that of the wild type but showed more severe chlorosis than wild-type plants under iron-deficient conditions.
Key role for transketolase activity in erythritol production by Trichosporonoides megachiliensis SN-G42.
The complete development and morphological changes of larval Panulirus longipes (Decapoda, Palinuridae) under laboratory conditions
SUMMARY: Two puerulus larvae of the spiny lobster Panulirus longipes were successfully obtained through the rearing of newly hatched phyllosoma larvae fed with diets of Artemia and gonads of the…
Impacts of acute ozone stress on superoxide dismutase (SOD) expression and reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation in rice leaves.
The spatial expression and regulation of transcription factors IDEF1 and IDEF2.
The spatial expression patterns and gene regulation of IDEF1 and IDEF2 in roots are generally conserved under conditions of iron sufficiency and deficiency, suggesting complicated interactions with unknown factors for sensing and transmitting iron-deficiency signals.
Bioreactor production of camptothecin by hairy root cultures of Ophiorrhiza pumila
A large-scale culture of hairy root of Ophiorrhiza pumila using a modified 3 l bioreactor was established and the total production of camptothecin, an anti-neoplastic quinoline alkaloid, reached 22 mg over 8 weeks' culture in the reactor.
Growth of wild pearl oysters Pinctada fucata, Pinctada margaritifera and Pinctada sugillata (Bivalvia: Pteriidae) in Taiwan
The differences in growth rates and morphological features suggested that the wild Taiwanese oysters may retain genetically pristine characteristics, thus genetic conservation might be urgently needed.
Reproductive biology of the female Japanese mantis shrimp Oratosquilla oratoria (Stomatopoda) in relation to changes in the seasonal pattern of larval occurrence in Tokyo Bay, Japan
The results suggest that a substantial decrease in the stock size of large individuals causes the low larval abundance before July, which is similar to how most large female shrimps spawned in spring.
