Embryos of the Whale Shark, Rhincodon typus: Early Growth and Size Distribution
TLDR
The species was first described in 1828, when a 13.7-m immature male was harpooned by fishermen off Table Bay, South Africa, and described the species as Rhincodon typus.
Temporal and spatial variations in the species composition, distribution, and abundance of copepods in Kaohsiung Harbor, Taiwan
TLDR
Multidimensional scaling (MDS) analysis of each cruise revealed an abundance difference with a low in July and a high in Apr, distinguished 1999 as a low abundance year and the species diversity index was generally similar between stations, but was lower in Jan. and higher in Oct.
Salinity-dependent expression of the branchial Na+/K+/2Cl− cotransporter and Na+/K+-ATPase in the sailfin molly correlates with hypoosmoregulatory endurance
TLDR
The correlation between the gradual reductions in expression of branchial NKCC and NKA and decreasing survival rates after hyperosmotic challenge in sailfin molly is illustrated.
A Model to Predict Total Chlorine Residue in the Cooling Seawater of a Power Plant Using Iodine Colorimetric Method
TLDR
Based on the decay rate, flow rate, and the length of cooling water flowing through at a given temperature, the TRO level in the cooling water of a power plant could be estimated using the equation developed in this study.
Towards the Small and the Beautiful: A Small Dibromotyrosine Derivative from Pseudoceratina sp. Sponge Exhibits Potent Apoptotic Effect through Targeting IKK/NFκB Signaling Pathway
TLDR
The results of a set of experiments designed to reveal the underlying mechanism of DT cytotoxic activity against K562 cells suggested that DT can act as a topoisomerase II catalytic inhibitor, unlike the clinical anticancer drug, etoposide, which acts as aTopoisomersase poison.
Effects of low environmental salinity on the cellular profiles and expression of Na+, K+-ATPase and Na+, K+, 2Cl− cotransporter 1 of branchial mitochondrion-rich cells in the juvenile marine fish
TLDR
The osmoregulatory mechanisms of this easy- and economic-to-rear marine teleost with euryhaline capacity were illustrated and proved the silver moony to be a good experimental animal.
10-Acetylirciformonin B, A Sponge Furanoterpenoid, Induces DNA Damage and Apoptosis in Leukemia Cells
TLDR
It isicate that 10-acetylirciformonin B treatment causes apoptosis in leukaemia cells; probably through a caspase-dependent regulatory pathway.
Short-term effects of thermal stress on the responses of branchial protein quality control and osmoregulation in a reef-associated fish, Chromis viridis
TLDR
The present study provided the evidence to illustrate that activation of the branchial protein quality control mechanism to carry out cytoprotective response was involved in coping with thermal stress, and plasma osmolality and muscle water content, respectively, that slightly but evidently increased and decreased might result from impaired osmoregulatory ability due to hyperthermia-decreased gill NKA activity.
Copepods Assemblages in an Embayment of Taiwan during Monsoonal Transitions
TLDR
The results indicate that the copepod assemblages changed with water conditions at the northeastern margin of the South China Sea where water masses of the Kuroshio Current and those of theSouth China Sea mix.
