Zebrafish Gonadotropins and Their Receptors: I. Cloning and Characterization of Zebrafish Follicle-Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone Receptors— Evidence for Their Distinct Functions in
Abstract In the present study, we cloned and characterized zebrafish FSH receptor (Fshr) and LH receptor (Lhr). Both fshr and lhr were abundantly expressed in the zebrafish gonads; however, theyExpand

Zebrafish Gonadotropins and Their Receptors: II. Cloning and Characterization of Zebrafish Follicle-Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone Subunits—Their Spatial-Temporal Expression Patterns and
Abstract Gonadotropins, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH) play critical roles in vertebrate reproduction. In the present study, we cloned and characterized zebrafishExpand

Induction of laccase activity in the edible straw mushroom, Volvariella volvacea.
Volvariella volvacea, strain V14, produces multiple forms of extracellular laccase when grown in submerged culture in a defined medium with glucose as sole carbon source, and on cotton wasteExpand

Genetic analysis of zebrafish gonadotropin (FSH and LH) functions by TALEN-mediated gene disruption.
Vertebrate reproduction is controlled by two gonadotropins (FSH and LH) from the pituitary. Despite numerous studies on FSH and LH in fish species, their functions in reproduction still remain poorlyExpand

  • 1 December 2004
Abstract Our recent experiments showed that gonadotropin(s) stimulated activin βA and follistatin expression through the cAMP-PKA pathway but suppressed βB via a cAMP-dependent but PKA-independentExpand

  • 15 January 2004
Cytochrome P450c17 (CYP17, 17alpha-hydroxylase/17, 20-lyase) has been viewed as a critical enzyme for the biosynthesis of gonadal and adrenal steroids in vertebrates. A full-length cDNA coding forExpand

Co-metabolic biodegradation of acetamiprid by Pseudoxanthomonas sp. AAP-7 isolated from a long-term acetamiprid-polluted soil.
An AAP-degrading bacterium, AAP-7, was isolated from AAP-polluted soil. AAP-7 was identified as Pseudoxanthomonas sp. on the basis of the comparative analysis of 16S rDNA sequences. The strain wasExpand

Biochemical and molecular characterization of a laccase from the edible straw mushroom, Volvariella volvacea.
We have isolated a laccase (lac1) from culture fluid of Volvariella volvacea, grown in a defined medium containing 150 micro m CuSO4, by ion-exchange and gel filtration chromatography. Lac1 has aExpand
