    Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is caused by mutations in the ABCC6 gene, which encodes a putative efflux transporter, ABCC6. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) has two ABCC6-related sequences. To study the function of abcc6 during zebrafish development, the mRNA expression levels were measured using...

    Lymphatic vessels have important roles in fluid homeostasis, fat absorption, inflammation and cancer metastasis and develop in a dynamic process (called lymphangiogenesis) involving budding, migration and proliferation of lymphangioblasts. Using a genetic screen in zebrafish we identify ccbe1...

    The composition of leucocytes of the head kidney is studied in the crucian carps ( Carassius auratus) either contaminated or uncontaminated with Digramma interrupta. The composition of leucocytes in the pronephros of the crucian carp from Lake Baikal basin has a lymphoid character. Compared to...

    The level of metals (Zn, Fe, Pb, Cu, Mn, Cr, Na, Mg, Ca and K) in water, sediment and fish samples from Itapaji dam for both dry and wet seasons in two years were determined using standard analytical methods. The concentrations of metals were higher in dry season than those of wet season for the...

  • The Effects of Strobe Lights on Zebra Mussel Settlement and Movement Patterns. Coons, Kathleen; McCabe, Declan J.; Marsden, J. Ellen // Journal of Freshwater Ecology;Mar2004, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p1 

    We evaluated the efficacy of strobe lights as deterrents to zebra mussel settlement and migration under laboratory and field conditions. Zebra mussels preferentially settle in darker areas and, in laboratory experiments, moved away from light. Strobe lights effectively repel a number of fish...

    Abstract  We studied delayed effects of sedatin (arginine-containing μ/δ-opioid receptor agonist) and its arginine-free analog on the ontogenetic development of fish. Fertilized eggs of the Amur sturgeon (Acipenser schrenckii) were treated with the peptides. The results indicate that...

    total of 100 Tilapia fish samples were collected from brackish water ( n = 50) and fresh water ( n = 50) resources, Northern Egypt, and examined for heterophyid encysted metacercariae (EMC) during the period from August 2007 to July 2008. The overall prevalence of infection was 32%; 22% for...

    A number of recent articles have investigated the potential of familiarity preferences to influence group membership in free-ranging animals. However, it is not clear to which extent individual recognition or a more general recognition of a group odor is responsible for familiarity preferences....
