Myogenic regulatory factors Myf5 and Myod function distinctly during craniofacial myogenesis of zebrafish.
The functions of Myf5 and Myod are well known in trunk myogenesis. However, the roles that Myf5 and Myod play during craniofacial myogenesis are far from well known. We observed that zebrafish myf5Expand

Disulfiram can inhibit MERS and SARS coronavirus papain-like proteases via different modes
Abstract Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS‐CoV) emerged in southern China in late 2002 and caused a global outbreak with a fatality rate around 10% in 2003. Ten years later, aExpand

Movement disorder and neuromuscular change in zebrafish embryos after exposure to caffeine.
Though caffeine is broadly distributed in many plants and foods, little is known about the teratogenic effects of caffeine during early embryonic development. Here, we used zebrafish as a model toExpand

A solvent stable metalloprotease produced by Bacillus sp. TKU004 and its application in the deproteinization of squid pen for β-chitin preparation
Abstract A protease-producing bacterium was isolated and identified as Bacillus sp. TKU004. It thus can be used for deproteinization of squid pen in the preparation of β-chitin. The optimizedExpand

Hypoxia-Induced Retinal Neovascularization in Zebrafish Embryos: A Potential Model of Retinopathy of Prematurity
Retinopathy of prematurity, formerly known as a retrolental fibroplasia, is a leading cause of infantile blindness worldwide. Retinopathy of prematurity is caused by the failure of central retinalExpand

Production of cloned goats from enucleated oocytes injected with cumulus cell nuclei or fused with cumulus cells.
This study was designed to produce cloned goats from cumulus cells. Cloning donor nuclei were from cumulus cells either freshly isolated or cultured in vitro. Enucleated oocytes were either injectedExpand
