The Chinese fire-bellied newt, Cynops orientalis, belonging to Amphibia, Caudata, Salamandridae is a species endemic to China. The liver, which is an important digestive gland and the largest amphibian organ, has various functions, including detoxification, glycogen storage, protein synthesis, and hormone production. However, the newt liver has rarely been studied at the molecular level. We performed histomorphology and high-throughput proteomic analysis of the Chinese fire-bellied newt liver…

Proteomic analysis of eleven tissues in the Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus)
Transcription regulator, pathway and bio-functional analysis of tissue-specific proteins showed that highly expressed proteins largely reflected the physiological functions of specific tissues of the Chinese giant salamander.
Mitochondrial gene expression in different organs of Hoplobatrachus rugulosus from China and Thailand under low-temperature stress
The differences in the structure and expression of the ND5 gene between CT and TT frogs could result in the different tolerances to low temperature stress and could have a significant effect in reducing metabolic rate and supporting long term survival at low temperatures.
Evaluation of the Toxicological Effects of Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles in Albino Male Mice
The ability of using organ indexes as good tools side by side with the biochemical indicators to explain the histopathological changes of ZnO NPs was proved, as well as some Histopathological effects that were not previously recorded as a toxicological effect in animal animals.
Ecological Risks Due to Immunotoxicological Effects on Aquatic Organisms
The usefulness of the population growth rate to estimate the immunotoxicological impact of pollution chemicals was proposed and the current issues on ecological risk assessment and how to address ecological risk Assessment through Immunotoxicology were discussed.
Factors relating to the biodistribution & clearance of nanoparticles & their effects on in vivo application.
In this review, the clearance functions of organs and the properties related to pharmacokinetics, including nanoparticle size, shape, biodegradation and surface modifications are discussed.


The Structural Organization of the Liver in the Chinese Fire-bellied Newt (Cynops orientalis)
The morphology of Chinese fire-bellied newt liver consists of 5 lobes, with exception of a few individual differences present, which are composed by a number of hepatic lobules.
Function of the hepatic melanogenesis in the newt, Triturus carnifex.
Using hematological and histochemical techniques and computerised image analysis, it has been shown that hypoxic animals not only increase the extent of the melanic areas of the liver from about 5-7% to almost 24% compared to control groups kept under two different respiratory conditions, but also went through a remarkable hemolytic process to justify a parallel increase in hemosiderin deposits.
The Apoptotic Function Analysis of p53, Apaf1, Caspase3 and Caspase7 during the Spermatogenesis of the Chinese Fire-Bellied Newt Cynops orientalis
The intriguing high occurrence of spermatid and sperm apoptosis probably resulted from the sperm morphology and unique reproduction policy of Chinese fire-belly newt, Cynops orientalis.
Increase in liver pigmentation during natural hibernation in some amphibians
The increase in liver pigmentation (melanin content) during winter appeared to be correlated with morphological and functional modifications in the hepatocytes, which at this period were characterised by a decrease in metabolic activity.

Regulation of 2-oxoglutarate metabolism in rat liver by NADP-isocitrate dehydrogenase and aspartate aminotransferase
Kinetic and regulatory properties of NADP-isocitrate dehydrogenase and aspartate aminotransferase responsible for 2-oxoglutarate metabolism in the cytoplasm and mitochondria of rat liver were studied and it was suggested that synthesis of 2-OxoglUTarate should be mainly determined by cy toplasmic NADP (86% of the total activity in the cell), whereas its utilization should depend on cytop lasmic AsAT.
Hepatic Phosphoserine Aminotransferase 1 Regulates Insulin Sensitivity in Mice via Tribbles Homolog 3
It is found that serine mediates PSAT1 regulation of TRB3 expression and insulin signaling in vitro and in vivo, and this results suggest that nonessential amino acid serine may play an important role in regulating insulin sensitivity.
Iron homeostasis in the liver.
Several mutations in liver-derived genes have been identified, demonstrating the central role of the liver in iron homeostasis, and a chronic increase in liver iron stores results in excess reactive oxygen species production and liver injury.
