Histone deacetylase 4 (HDAC4) is an important modifier enzyme for chromatin remodeling and plays an essential role in regulating gene expression. Spatio-temporal expression spectrum revealed that zebrafish hdac4 mRNA, ubiquitously distributed in various tissues, were significantly higher at 36 hpf (hours post-fertilization) and 6 dpf (days(More)
The genome size (C value) of eight commercially important fish species in China was measured using flow cytometry. Chicken (Gallus domesticus) erythrocytes were used as reference cells. When using propidium iodide (PI) as the fluorescent dye, genome sizes were 1.09 ± 0.08, 2.75 ± 0.12, 1.05 ± 0.05, 1.35 ± 0.11, 0.99 ± 0.05, 0.90 ± 0.08, 0.90 ± 0.07, and(More)
We described the isolation and characterization of 15 new microsatellite loci from golden mandarin fish, Siniperca scherzeri. The analysis of variability was performed in 34 individuals. Allelic diversity ranged from 2 to 7 alleles per locus, with observed and expected heterozygosities ranging from 0.294 to 1.000 and 0.261 to 0.740, respectively. Seven loci(More)
Hypoxia is one of the most important environmental factors which affect fish growth, development and survival, but regulation mechanisms of hypoxia in fish remain unclear. Therefore, to further understand molecular functions of factor inhibiting HIF-1 (Fih-1), an essential hypoxia sensor, the full-length cDNA of fih-1 was cloned from Megalobrama(More)
Objective: To determine the effect of transdermal nitroglycerine for acute tocolysis in preterm labor with regard to its efficacy in delaying delivery for 48 hours to allow the maximum benefit of glucocorticoids to take effect on the foetal lungs, and analysis of side effects. After fulfilling the inclusion criteria seventy five pregnant women presenting at(More)
The influence of all-plant-based diet on fingerling blunt snout breams (Megalobrama amblycephala) was tested by examining growth performance, anti-stress properties and related gene expression. Healthy fish were randomly divided into triplicate groups per dietary treatment and fed with different formulated diets. The results showed that both weight gain,(More)
In this study, we investigated the effect of photoperiod on growth and gonadal development of juvenile topmouth gudgeon, Pseudorasbora parva. Seven different photoperiods (light:dark, L:D) were tested: 0L:24D, 4L:20D, 8L:16D, 12L:12D, 16L:8D, 20L:4D and 24L:0D, from November to January. Throughout the study, light intensity was kept at 400 lx on the water(More)
