Distribution of immunoglobulin-positive cells in the spleen and kidney of Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus.
TLDR
There are some differences between the spleen and kidney in the role of the immune system and it is considered that differentiation of B cells to plasma cells occurs in the kidney.
Influence of different substrates on the evolution of morphology and life‐history traits of azooxanthellate solitary corals (Scleractinia: Flabellidae)
TLDR
In conclusion, flabellids developed various morphology and life-history traits according to the differences in substrate conditions during the course of their evolution.
Burrowing hard corals occurring on the sea floor since 80 million years ago
TLDR
The newly discovered active burrowing strategies described herein provide new insights into the use of an unattached mode of life by corals inhabiting soft-bottom substrates throughout the Phanerozoic.
Identification of viral induced genes in Ig+ leucocytes of Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus, by differential hybridisation with subtracted and un-subtracted cDNA probes.
TLDR
From leucocytes mRNA for homologues of IFI56, CEF-10, Stat3, SERPIN and inducible poly (A) binding protein expression was shown to increase following HRV infection.
THIAMINE BIOSYNTHESIS FROM HYDROXYMETHYLPYRIMIDINE AND THIAZOLE BY WASHED CELLS AND CELL EXTRACTS OF ESCHERICHIA COLI AND ITS MUTANTS.
TLDR
The presence of a thiamine-sythesizing pathway from the pyrimidine and thiazole moieties in bakers' yeast was demonstrated by the washed cells and cell extracts by sonication of E. coli ATCC 9637 and the strains 70-17 and 26-43, and it is assumed that theThiamine requirement of this mutant is due to the decrease or lack of OMPm-kinase activity.
Seasonal Change in Muscle Firmness and Proximate Composition of Red Seabream.
The seasonal change in breaking strength and proximate composition of the muscle of cultured adult red seabream (two to three years old) was investigated through a year from March in 1995 to February
Changes in the utilization of microhabitat and food with growth of the Amago Oncorhynchus rhodurus in a Japanese mountain stream.
TLDR
Changes of microhabitat and food selection with growth in Oncorhynchus rhodurus were investigated in a Japanese mountain stream from May to November 1984 and relation between utilization of resources by each age group and population dynamics was discussed.
