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.

Key role for transketolase activity in erythritol production by Trichosporonoides megachiliensis SN-G42.
Results suggest that erythritol may be produced mainly through the pentose phosphate pathway, and that the high activity of transketolase is required to produce abundant intermediates, which results in high erystritol productivity. Expand
OsYSL16 plays a role in the allocation of iron
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. Expand
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. Expand
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 theExpand
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. Expand
Production of tropane alkaloids by transformed root cultures of Atropa belladonna in stirred bioreactors with a stainless steel net
Abstract A scale up of transformed root cultures of Atropa belladonna from a 300-ml flask to a 30-l tank was accomplished without any reduction in alkaloid productivity. Cutting treatment of seedExpand
Iron Biofortification of Myanmar Rice
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. Expand
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. Expand
Production of Anthocyanins by Vitis Cells in Suspension Culture
A large amount of anthocyanin was accumulated in the callus tissues of Vitis hybrids without light irradiation.Culture conditions for the production of anthocyanins by Vitis cells in suspensionExpand
