Revisions to the classification, nomenclature, and diversity of Eukaryotes
(Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology, 2019-01-19)
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes follows that of Adl et al., 2012 [J. Euk. Microbiol. 59(5)] and retains an emphasis on protists. Changes since have improved the resolution of many nodes in phylogenetic ...
Effects of soy protein base diet supplemented with lysine and methionine on digestive enzymes activity and hematological parameters in silvery-black porgy (Sparidentex hasta) juveniles
(Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences, 2019-03-06)
The effect of dietary partial replacement of fish meal (FM) by soybean protein (SP) alone or in combination with lysine (Lys) and methionine (Met) supplementation were tested in a 60-days feeding trial for silvery-black ...
Two Loci, RiAF3 and RiAF4, Contribute to the Annual-Fruiting Trait in Rubus
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-10-25)
Most Rubus species have a biennial cycle of flowering and fruiting with an intervening period of winter dormancy, in common with many perennial fruit crops. Annual-fruiting (AF) varieties of raspberry (Rubus idaeus and ...
Composition of the microbial communities in the gastrointestinal tract of perch (Perca fluviatilis L. 1758) and cestodes parasitizing the perch digestive tract
(Journal of Fish Diseases, 2019-10-29)
Using the approach of sequencing the V3‐V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene, we have analysed the bacterial diversity associated with the distinct compartments of the gastrointestinal tract of perch (Perca fluviatilis) and ...
Development of a modified plug-flow anaerobic digester for biogas production from animal manures
Traditional plug-flow anaerobic reactors (PFRs) are characterized by lacking a mixing system and operating at high total solid concentrations, which limits their applicability for several kinds of manures. This paper studies ...
In vivo safety evaluation of the Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 strain in broilers, piglets, and turkeys
(Toxicology Research and Application, 2019-02-11)
Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 (CBM 588) is a nonpathogenic, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus characterized by the production of short-chain fatty acids, including butyrate. The safety and tolerance of CBM 588 was ...
Linking stocking densities and feeding strategies with social and individual stress responses on gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata)
(Physiology and Behavior, 2019-10-24)
Intensive aquaculture and poor management practices can cause stress and compromise welfare of farmed fish. This study aimed to assess the potential links between stocking densities and feeding methods with social and ...
Comparative analysis of the fecal microbiota from different species of domesticated and wild suids
(Scientific Reports, 2019-09-20)
Most of the microorganisms living in a symbiotic relationship in different animal body sites (microbiota) reside in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Several studies have shown that the microbiota is involved in host ...
Infectious phage particles packaging antibiotic resistance genes found in meat products and chicken feces
(Scientific Reports, 2019-09-16)
Bacteriophages can package part of their host's genetic material, including antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs), contributing to a rapid dissemination of resistances among bacteria. Phage particles containing ARGs were ...
