Marine ranching is considered as an efficient tool to protect and restore the coastal fishe-ries resource. In order to assess the ecological impacts of the construction of marine ranching on rocky fishes, the feeding habits of Sebastiscus marmoratus collected at the marine ranching area off Ma'an Archipelago were studied using stomach contents analyses and stable isotope analyses. Results showed that S. marmoratus mainly preyed on amphipoda, crabs and cephalopods before the construction of marine ranching. The dominant prey species were Caprella sp...

A single adult specimen of Gonioinfradens giardi, a portunid crab known from the Red Sea, Gulf of Oman and Arabian Gulf, was recently collected off the southern Israeli coast, in the southeastern Mediterranean Sea. Morphological characters, as well as molecular analyses based on the mitochondrial barcoding gene cytochrome oxidase sub unit I (COI), support its distinction from the widely distributed G. paucidentata. Therefore, G. giardi is reinstated as a valid species, and withdrawn from its synonymy with G...

Purpose: The aim of this study is to improve the anti-biofilm activity of antibiotics. We hypothesized that the antimicrobial peptide (AMP) complex of the host's immune system can be used for this purpose and examined the assumption on model biofilms. Methods: FLIP7, the AMP complex of the blowfly Calliphora vicina containing a combination of defensins, cecropins, diptericins and proline-rich peptides was isolated from the hemolymph of bacteria-challenged maggots...

The field of interventional cardiology has significantly evolved over 40 years by overcoming several challenges. The introduction of first-generation drug-eluting stents significantly reduced the rates of restenosis, but at the expense of an increase of late stent thrombosis. Prolonged antithrombotic therapy reduced rates of stent thrombosis, but at the cost of increased bleeding. Although the advent of second-generation drug-eluting stents subsequently reduced the incidence of late stent thrombosis, its permanent nature prevents full recovery of vascular structure and function with accordant risk of very late stent failure...

The crucifix crab, Charybdis feriatus, which mainly inhabits Indo-Pacific region, is regarded as one of the most high-potential species for domestication and incorporation into the aquaculture sector. However, the regulatory mechanisms of sex determination and differentiation of this species remain unclear. To identify candidate genes involved in sex determination and differentiation, high throughput sequencing of transcriptome from the testis and ovary of C. feriatus was performed by Illumina platform. After removing adaptor primers, low-quality sequences and very short (<50 nt) reads, 80...

BACKGROUND: Elevated lipoprotein(a) (Lp[a]) and familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) are inherited lipid disorders. Their frequencies, coexistence, and associations with premature coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients admitted to the coronary care unit (CCU) remain to be defined. HYPOTHESIS: Elevated Lp(a) and FH are commonly encountered among CCU patients and independently associated with increased premature CAD risk. METHODS: Plasma Lp(a) concentrations were measured in consecutive patients admitted to the CCU with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or prior history of CAD for 6...

Absence or minimization of PVL after TAVR and its potential association with higher rates of PPM placement has been the Achilles' heel of TAVR procedures. Pre-existing RBBB and depth of implantation are independent predictors of PPM need after Lotus valve implantation. Optimization of device design, increased operator experience, and focus on accurate device placement seem to result in decreased need for PPM after Lotus valve implantation.

It has been proposed that prohibitin (PHB) involved in multiple cellular functions, including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, senescence and carcinogenesis. Various cellular compartment location of PHB demonstrates its diverse roles. Based on the full-length sequence of PHB gene, we analyzed the deduced amino acid sequence and the predicted protein structure of this gene in the swimming crab Charybdis japonica. It shows that the structure and function of PHB are conservative. The expression level of PHB mRNA and protein in different tissues were analyzed by sqRT-PCR and western blot respectively, which showed its high expression in testis...

Introduction In quite a few patients with bipolar disorder there is no real alternative to lithium treatment despite impaired kidney function. Is it possible to continue lithium treatment despite kidney malfunction by changing dosage and/or frequency of administration? Case Report We report on a 65-year-old woman suffering from bipolar-I disorder who had been on lithium treatment for many decades. While on lithium, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decreased constantly. A decision had to be made whether to switch to a more tolerable o...

We examined prey selection and foraging behaviors of the crab Charybdis japonica exposed to four combinations of pH (7.3 and 8.1) and temperature (18°C and 25°C). The order of prey selection by C. japonica was Potamocorbula laevis, Ruditapes philippinarum, Tegillarca granosa and Mactra veneriformis. Under high pCO2 , times for searching, breaking, eating and handling were all significantly longer than those at the normal pCO2 , and the prey profitability and predation rate under high pCO2 were significantly lower than normal pCO2 ...

The diversity and abundance of marine crabs from a collapsible crab trap fishery at Kung Krabaen Bay, Gulf of Thailand, were observed from August 2012 to June 2013 using 10 sampling stations. The results showed that there were seven families, 11 genera and 17 species (two anomuran and 15 brachyuran crabs). The two anomuran species were Clibanarius virescens (1,710 individuals) and Clibanarius infraspinatus (558 individuals). For brachyuran crabs, Portunidae was the most common family, including 10 species. The dominant species of brachyuran crabs included Thalamita crenata (897 individuals), Portunus pelagicus (806 individuals), Charybdis affinis (344 individuals), Scylla sp...

In this study, we determined the whole mitochondrial genome profile of the three-spot swimming crab (Portunus sanguinolentus) and elucidated phylogenetic relationships between representative species in the order Decapoda. The mitochondrial genome was 16,024 bp in length and consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, and a putative control region. Of the 37 genes, 23 were encoded by the heavy strand while 14 were encoded by the light strand. Four types of start codons were identified; ATG initiated nine genes, ATT initiated two genes, and ATC and GTG each started one gene...

This study determined the mitochondrial genome structure of the blue swimming crab (Portunus pelagicus), and elucidated its phylogenetic relationships among the species within the order Decapoda. The complete mitochondrial genome was 16,155 bp long, and contained 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 1 DNA control region. The gene order of the genome was the same as that found within the family Portunidae. Twenty-three genes were on the heavy strand and 14 were on the light strand...

INTRODUCTION: Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are increasingly resistant nosocomial pathogens. We aimed to analyze the prevalence of CoNS isolates in clinical settings, the evolution of antimicrobial resistance of CoNS, and antibiotic consumption in a hospital. METHODOLOGY: This retrospective cohort study was carried out at a tertiary healthcare facility over 17 months. Identification of isolated cultures and antibiotic susceptibility testing were performed using the Vitek2 system...
