Subunit dissociation in fish hemoglobins. (1/702)

The tetramer-dimer dissociation equilibria (K 4,2) of several fish hemoglobins have been examined by sedimentation velocity measurements with a scanner-computer system for the ultracentrifuge and by flash photolysis measurements using rapid kinetic methods. Samples studied in detail included hemoglobins from a marine teleost, Brevoortia tyrannus (common name, menhaden); a fresh water teleost, Cyprinus carpio, (common name, carp); and an elasmobranch Prionace glauca (common name, blue shark). For all three species in the CO form at pH 7, in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, sedimentation coefficients of 4.3 S (typical of tetrameric hemoglobin) are observed in the micromolar concentration range. In contrast, mammalian hemoglobins dissociate appreciably to dimers under these conditions. The inability to detect dissociation in three fish hemoglobins at the lowest concentrations examined indicates that K 4,2 must have a value of 10(-8) M or less. In flash photolysis experiments on very dilute solutions in long path length cells, two kinetic components were detected with their proportions varying as expected for an equilibrium between tetramers (the slower component) and dimers (the faster component); values of K 4,2 for the three fish hemoglobins in the range 10(-9) to 10(-8) M were calculated from these data. Thus, the values of K 4,2 for liganded forms of the fish hemoglobins appear to be midway between the value for liganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-6) M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-12) M). This conclusion is supported by measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride to enhance the degree of dissociation. All three fish hemoglobins are appreciably dissociated at guanidine concentrations of about 0.8 M, which is roughly midway between the guanidine concentrations needed to cause comparable dissociation of liganded human hemoglobin (about 0.4 M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (about 1.6 M). Kinetic measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride indicated that there are changes in both the absolute rates and the proportions of the fast and slow components, which along with other factors complicated the analysis of the data in terms of dissociation constants. Measurements were also made in solutions containing urea to promote dissociation, but with this agent very high concentrations (about 6 M) were required to give measureable dissociation and the fish hemoglobins were unstable under these conditions, with appreciable loss of absorbance spectra in both the sedimentation and kinetic experiments.  (+info)

Fish swimbladder: an excellent mesodermal inductor in primary embryonic induction. (2/702)

Swimbladder of the crucian carp, Carassius auratus, was found to be better as a vegatalizing tissue than other tissues, such as guinea-pig bone marrow, when presumptive ectoderm of Triturus gastrulae was used as reacting tissue. Swimbladder usually induced assemblies of highly organized mesodermal tissues, such as notochord, somites and pronephric tubules, some of which were covered by mesodermal epithelium without any epidermal covering. A special character of the effect of swimbladder was the rather frequent induction of solid balls of undifferentiated cells, which were identified as mesodermal or mesodermal and probably endodermal. These findings show that swimbladder has a strong and fast spreading vegetalizing effect on the responding presumptive ectoderm.  (+info)

Sequence differences between alpha1C and alpha1S Ca2+ channel subunits reveal structural determinants of a guarded and modulated benzothiazepine receptor. (3/702)

The molecular basis of the Ca2+ channel block by (+)-cis-diltiazem was studied in class A/L-type chimeras and mutant alpha1C-a Ca2+ channels. Chimeras consisted of either rabbit heart (alpha1C-a) or carp skeletal muscle (alpha1S) sequence in transmembrane segments IIIS6, IVS6, and adjacent S5-S6 linkers. Only chimeras containing sequences from alpha1C-a were efficiently blocked by (+)-cis-diltiazem, whereas the phenylalkylamine (-)-gallopamil efficiently blocked both constructs. Carp skeletal muscle and rabbit heart Ca2+ channel alpha1 subunits differ with respect to two nonconserved amino acids in segments IVS6. Transfer of a single leucine (Leu1383, located at the extracellular mouth of the pore) from IVS6 alpha1C-a to IVS6 of alpha1S significantly increased the (+)-cis-diltiazem sensitivity of the corresponding mutant L1383I. An analysis of the role of the two heterologous amino acids in a L-type alpha1 subunit revealed that corresponding amino acids in position 1487 (outer channel mouth) determine recovery of resting Ca2+ channels from block by (+)-cis-diltiazem. The second heterologous amino acid in position 1504 of segment IVS6 (inner channel mouth) was identified as crucial inactivation determinant of L-type Ca2+ channels. This residue simultaneously modulates drug binding during membrane depolarization. Our study provides the first evidence for a guarded and modulated benzothiazepine receptor on L-type channels.  (+info)

Injury-induced gelatinase and thrombin-like activities in regenerating and nonregenerating nervous systems. (4/702)

It is now widely accepted that injured nerves, like any other injured tissue, need assistance from their extracellular milieu in order to heal. We compared the postinjury activities of thrombin and gelatinases, two types of proteolytic activities known to be critically involved in tissue healing, in nonregenerative (rat optic nerve) and regenerative (fish optic nerve and rat sciatic nerve) neural tissue. Unlike gelatinases, whose induction pattern was comparable in all three nerves, thrombin-like activity differed clearly between regenerating and nonregenerating nervous systems. Postinjury levels of this latter activity seem to dictate whether it will display beneficial or detrimental effects on the capacity of the tissue for repair. The results of this study further highlight the fact that tissue repair and nerve regeneration are closely linked and that substances that are not unique to the nervous system, but participate in wound healing in general, are also crucial for regeneration or its failure in the nervous system.  (+info)

Whirling disease: host specificity and interaction between the actinosporean stage of Myxobolus cerebralis and rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. (5/702)

Scanning electron microscopic studies were conducted on rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss in the first 60 min after their exposure to the triactinomyxon spores of Myxobolus cerebralis. The results demonstrated that as early as 1 min post exposure the whole process, from the attachment of the triactinomyxon spores to the complete penetration of their sporoplasm germs, had occurred. The triactinomyxon spores sought out the secretory openings of mucous cells of the epidermis, the respiratory epithelium and the buccal cavity of trout and used them as portals of entry. Exposure experiments of the triactinomyxon spores of M. cerebralis to non-salmonid fish, such as goldfish Carassius auratus, carp Cyprinus carpio, nose Chondrostoma nasus, medaka Oryzias latipes, guppy Poecilia reticulata and also the amphibian tadpole Rana pipiens as well as to rainbow trout fry indicated a specificity for salmonids. Attempts to activate the triactinomyxon spores by exposure to mucus prepared from cyprinid and salmonid fish showed no significant differences from those conducted in tap water. The results suggest that the simultaneous presence of both mechano- and chemotactic stimuli was required for finding the salmonid fish host.  (+info)

Characterization of a cDNA encoding a precursor of Carassius RFamide, structurally related to a mammalian prolactin-releasing peptide. (6/702)

We have characterized the cDNA encoding Carassius RFamide (C-RFa), which is structurally related to mammalian prolactin-releasing peptides (PrRPs), from the brain of the crucian carp. The deduced C-RFa precursor has been shown to comprise 117 amino acids, encoding a single C-RFa sequence. A comparative study of amino acid sequences has revealed that several sequences conserved in preproPrRPs are also found in the C-RFa precursor. Furthermore, the abundant presence of the C-RFa mRNA in the telencephalon, optic tectum, medulla oblongata, and proximal half eye ball was demonstrated by Southern blot analysis of RT-PCR products.  (+info)

Identification and expression analysis of two developmentally regulated myosin heavy chain gene transcripts in carp (Cyprinus carpio). (7/702)

Whilst developmentally regulated genes for the myosin heavy chain (MyoHC) have been characterised in mammalian, avian and amphibian species, no developmental MyoHC gene has previously been characterised in a species of fish. In this study, we identify two developmentally regulated MyoHC gene transcripts (named Eggs22 and Eggs24) in carp (Cyprinus carpio) and characterise their expression patterns during embryonic and larval development. The transcripts showed an identical temporal pattern of expression commencing 22 h post-fertilisation (18 degrees C incubation temperature), coincident with the switch from exclusive expression of genes for beta-actin to expression of genes for both beta- and alpha-actin, and continuing for 2 weeks post-hatching. No expression of these myosin transcripts was detected in juvenile or adult carp. Wholemount in situ hybridisation showed that both transcripts are expressed initially in the rostral region of the developing trunk and progress caudally. Both are expressed in the developing pectoral fin and protractor hyoideus muscles. However, the muscles of the lower jaw express only the Eggs22 transcript. No expression of either transcript was detected in cardiac or smooth muscle. A distinct chevron pattern of expression was observed in the myotomal muscle. This was shown to be caused by localisation of the mRNAs to the myoseptal regions of the fibres, the sites of new sarcomere addition during muscle growth, suggesting transport of MyoHC mRNA transcripts. The 3' untranslated region of the Eggs24 transcript contains a 10 base pair motif (AAAATGTGAA) which is shown to be also present in the 3' untranslated regions of MyoHC genes from a wide range of species. Possible reasons for the need for developmental isoforms of myosin heavy chain isoforms are discussed.  (+info)

A new member of the Ig superfamily and a V-ATPase G subunit are among the predicted products of novel genes close to the TNF locus in the human MHC. (8/702)

It is becoming increasingly apparent that many of the genes in the class III region of the human MHC encode proteins involved in the immune and inflammatory responses. Furthermore, genetic studies have indicated that genes within the class III region, particularly the telomeric segment containing the TNF gene, could contribute to susceptibility to diseases of immune-related etiology. We have sequenced an 82-kb segment of DNA around the TNF gene to identify candidate disease susceptibility genes in this region. The 10 known genes in this region have been precisely positioned with the order allograft inflammatory factor 1, G1, 1C7, leukocyte-specific transcript 1 (B144), lymphotoxin B, TNF, lymphotoxin A, NB6, IKBL, BAT1 (centromere to telomere), and their genomic structures have been defined. Comparison of the G1 genomic region with previously described cDNA and genomic sequences, together with the results of reverse transcriptase-PCR, indicates that three alternative transcripts, G1, allograft inflammatory factor 1, and IFN-gamma-responsive transcript, are all derived from this gene. The completion of the sequence of 1C7 (D6S2570) has revealed that this gene encodes a putative novel member of the Ig superfamily. A number of alternatively spliced transcripts of 1C7 were identified by reverse transcriptase-PCR, all of which are expressed in immune-related cell lines. Alternative splicing within the Ig domain-encoding region was seen to result in possible set switching between an IgV domain and an IgC2 domain. Lastly, a previously unidentified gene, homologous to a number of V-ATPase G subunits, has been located 1 kb telomeric of IKBL.  (+info)

Deoxynivalenol (DON) frequently contaminates animal feed, including fish feed used in aquaculture. This study intends to further investigate the effects of DON on carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) at concentrations representative for commercial fish feeds. Experimental feeding with 352, 619 or 953 μg DON kg−1 feed resulted in unaltered growth performance of fish during six weeks of experimentation, but increased lipid peroxidation was observed in liver, head kidney and spleen after feeding of fish with the highest DON concentration. These effects of DON were mostly reversible by two weeks of feeding the uncontaminated control diet. Histopathological scoring revealed increased liver damage in DON-treated fish, which persisted even after the recovery phase. At the highest DON concentration, significantly more fat, and consequently, increased energy content, was found in whole fish body homogenates. This suggests that DON affects nutrient metabolism in carp. Changes of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity in
Anoxia-tolerant vertebrates decrease their metabolic rate by 70% or more during anoxia, while the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, GABA, increases in concentration. To test the possibility that GABA could be a mediator of anoxic metabolic depression, crucian carp (Carassius carassius L.) were given an inhibitor of GABA synthesis, isoniazid, and the rate of anoxic ethanol production (ethanol being the main end product of energy metabolism in anoxic crucian carp) as well as the rates of normoxic and hypoxic oxygen consumption were measured. Isoniazid (500mgkg−1), which significantly inhibited the anoxia-induced rise in brain GABA concentration, caused a nearly threefold increase in anaerobic ethanol production without affecting normoxic oxygen consumption. The GABA synthesis inhibitor 3-mercaptopropionic acid (3-MP, 200mgkg−1) and the GABA receptor antagonist securinine (20mgkg−1) caused similar rises in anoxic ethanol production. Nevertheless, crucian carp given ...

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis based on numerous polymorphic bands have been used to investigate genetic similarity and diversity among and within two cultured and wild populations represented by the species crucian carp (Carassius carassius). From RAPD analysis using five primers, a total of 442 polymorphic bands were obtained in the two populations and 273 were found to be specific to a wild population. 169 polymorphic bands were also produced in wild and cultured population. According to RAPD-based estimates, the average number of polymorphic bands in the wild population was approximately 1.5 times as diverse as that in cultured. The average number of polymorphic bands in each population was found to be different and was higher in the wild than in the cultured population. Comparison of banding patterns in the cultured and wild populations revealed substantial differences supporting a previous assessment that the populations may have been subjected to a long period of ...

In this study, we developed 134 novel polymorphic polynucleotide-repeat microsatellite markers for silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and characterized 40 loci for polymorphism and genetic diversity in a test population. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 19 (mean 9.4), and the average observed and expected heterozygosities were 0.74-0.76, respectively. Thirty-five loci were highly informative (PIC > 0.5) in silver carp population. After Bonferroni adjustments, no pairs of loci showed evidence of significant linkage disequilibrium, and none of the loci significantly deviated from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. All 134 silver carp microsatellite loci could be successfully amplified in bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) with 65 loci being polymorphic, indicating a high transferability of these microsatellites across species. This set of novel highly polymorphic polynucleotide-repeat microsatellites would be powerful tools for population and conservation genetics ...
The common carp, Cyprinus carpio, is a tetraploid fish species from the family Cyprinidae that arose about 20-50 Myr ago. The aim of the present work was attempting to understand the functional role of the duplicated common carp GH genes by studying their structure, evolution and expression. The introns of the second GH gene of common carp were sequenced for the first time and sequence comparisons of coding and non-coding regions of alleles of both GH genes were carried out. A phylogenetic analysis was done to examine the relationships of common carp GH genes with GH genes of the tetraploid goldfish and other diploid Cyprinids. In addition, phylogenetic analyses were done with other duplicated genes of common carp, some of which also important for growth. The relative rate test of Tajima (1993) showed a statistically significant increase in the evolution rate of the common carp GH I gene. In addition, some other duplicated gene pairs in common carp and goldfish with relaxation of functional ...

Adaptation of Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) to Regular Swimming Exercise I. Muscle Phospholipid Fatty Acid Composition and Lipid Peroxide Status Abstract.
The common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) is one of the major aquaculture species, contributing nearly 35% to the inland fish production in Karnataka, India. Stocks collected from Hungary (2), Indonesia and Vietnam were assessed alongside two local stocks in a series of culture performance trials with the objective of setting up a base population for developing a breeding programme. The present study deals with the genetic divergence and polymorphism in these six stocks using random-amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. A total of 180 decamer random primers were screened for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification (OPA 1-20, OPB1-20, OPC1-20, OPD1-20, OPE1-20, OPF1-20, OPG1-20, OPP1-20 and OPM1-20). Eight primers were selected for analysis of common carp genotypes (OPA-7, OPA-20, OPB-17, OPF-10, OP F-9, OPG-4, OPG-9 and OPP-16). Out of 492 bands recorded, 57.1% were polymorphic. Stepwise regression analysis was carried out to find best combination markers affecting body weight (P , 0.001). ...

Peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs) are pattern recognition molecules of innate immunity. In this study, a long-form PGRP, designated as gcPGRP6, was identified from grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella. The deduced amino acid sequence of gcPGRP6 is composed of 464 residues with a conserved PGRP domain at the C-terminus. The gcPGRP6 gene consists of four exons and three introns, spacing approximately 2.7 kb of genomic sequence. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that gcPGRP6 is clustered closely with zebrafish PGLYRP6, and formed a long-type PGRP subfamily together with PGLYRP2 members identified in teleosts and mammals. Real-time PCR and Western blotting analyses revealed that gcPGRP6 is constitutively expressed in organs/tissues examined, and its expression was significantly induced in liver and intestine of grass carp in response to PGN stimulation and in CIK cells treated with lipoteichoic acid (LTA), polyinosinic polycytidylic acid (Poly I:C) and peptidoglycan (PGN). Immunofluorescence ...
The Science Issue and Relevance: Triploidy is the condition in which three chromosome sets occur in somatic cells. Triploidization is the most practical, economical, and effective method for mass production of sterile fishes. Some examples include triploid oysters Crassostrea spp., Grass Carp Ctenopharyngodon idella, and Black Carp Mylopharyngodon piceus that are commercially cultured for consumption, weed and snail control, respectively. Additionally, triploid walleye Sander vitreus, crappie Pomoxis spp., striped bass Morone saxatilis, and salmonids are stocked for recreational fishing. Triploidization limits the potential for establishment of wild populations. However, treatments used to induce triploidy often do not achieve 100% triploids in a spawn.. Differentiating diploids from triploids at the earliest life stage possible allows for a more efficient use of resources including production time and rearing space. Thus, a reliable flow cytometric (FCM) method has been developed to ...

The present study investigated the effects of dietary vitamin A on immune function in the proximal intestine (PI), mid intestine (MI) and distal intestine (DI) of young grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella). Fish were fed graded levels of dietary vitamin A for 10 weeks, and then a challenge test using an injection of Aeromonas hydrophila was conducted for 14 d. The results showed that, compared with the optimum vitamin A level, vitamin A deficiency significantly decreased fish growth performance, increased enteritis morbidity, decreased intestinal innate humoral immune response and aggravated intestinal inflammation. However, liver-expressed antimicrobial peptide 2A/B mRNA in the DI and IL-6, IL-17D, IL-10, transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 and TGF-β2 mRNA in the PI were not affected by vitamin A levels. Meanwhile, vitamin A deficiency disturbed inflammatory cytokines in the PI, MI and DI, which might be partly linked to p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38MAPK) signalling and NF-κB ...

Cholinesterase (ChE) activity was used as a biomarker for assessing exposure of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides from irrigated agricultural waters. Carp were collected from a lake (Royal Lake) that receives most of its water from irrigation return flows and from a reference lake (Billy Clapp Lake) outside of the irrigation system. Results indicated that the mean whole-brain ChE activity of carp from Royal Lake (3.47 μmol/min/g tissue) was 34.2% less than that of carp from Billy Clapp Lake (5.27 μmol/min/g tissue) (p = 0.003). The depressed ChE activity in brain tissue of Royal Lake carp was in response to ChE-inhibiting insecticides detected in water samples in the weeks prior to tissue sampling; the most frequently detected insecticides included chlorpyrifos, azinphos-methyl, carbaryl, and ethoprop. Neither sex nor size appears to be a covariable in the analysis; ChE activity was not correlated with fish length or weight...
This project will enhance knowledge in the area of electromagnetic fields and health by clarifying some of the actual effects of low frequency electromagnetic fields (LF-EMF) on the innate immune system. The main goal of this project is to gain a basic understanding of possible LF-EMF effects at all levels of the organism (molecular, cellular and whole organism). Our model builds on existing in vitro models studying the formation of oxygen radicals in human monocytes, thus taking into account past research and established effects.The research questions in theis proposal address how LF-EMF modulate a) the in vitro response of macrophages, b) in vivo fish health and c) transcription of (immune-relevant) genes. The animal species of choice is fish, common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.), using an in vitro culture system of the fish equivalent of human bone marrow-derived macrophages. Carp macrophages will be exposed to LF-EMF treatments to measure macrophage activation. Microarray analysis will be used ...
Background Aquaporins (Aqps) are integral membrane proteins that facilitate the transport of water and small solutes across cell membranes. Among vertebrate species, Aqps are highly conserved in both gene structure and amino acid sequence. These proteins are vital for maintaining water homeostasis in living organisms, especially for aquatic animals such as teleost fish. Studies on teleost Aqps are mainly limited to several model species with diploid genomes. Common carp, which has a tetraploidized genome, is one of the most common aquaculture species being adapted to a wide range of aquatic environments. The complete common carp genome has recently been released, providing us the possibility for gene evolution of aqp gene family after whole genome duplication. Results In this study, we identified a total of 37 aqp genes from common carp genome. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that most of aqps are highly conserved. Comparative analysis was performed across five typical vertebrate genomes. We found that
The effect of Bacillus additive on immunity and antioxidant activities of grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) was studied in this experiment. Animals of the control group were fed the basal diet and those of treatment group were fed the basal diet augmented with Bacillus additive at a dose of 105 Colony Forming Units per gram (CFU g-1) feed. Data showed that serum immunity parameters including IgM, complement C3 and Alkaline Phosphatase (AKP) significantly increased (p,0.05) by 30.77, 34.62 and 107.79% in the treatment group. However, there was no significant difference in serum total protein, globulin, albumin, A/G ratio, Lysozyme (LZM), Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase (GOT) and Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase (GPT) activities. Serum antioxidant parameters such as serum Glutathione (GSH), Total Antioxidant Capacity (T-AOC), Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Glutathione Peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities significantly (p,0.05) enhanced by 32.76, 41.75, 20.06 and 11.30%, respectively and ...

DESIGN: The aim of these experiments was to prove increased resistance of common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) juveniles fed on experimental diets with microalgae biomass supplement (Algadiets) to oxidative stress caused by a disinfectant chloramine-T. In indoor experiments fish were fed on laboratory-prepared extruded diets containing supplement of Chlorella spp. (cf. C. vulgaris Beijerinck) biomass which contains antioxidants (carotenoids) like lutein. The young-of-the-year-old fish were acclimatized and fed on basal diet (control group) and the on diets containing 1, 2, 5 and 10% (w/w) of spray-dried Chlorella biomass (Algadiet 1, 2, 5 and 10) for 14 days followed by 6 weeks. Consequently, fish were treated daily with chloramine-T (Chl-T) at concentration of 10 mg x l(-1) for 1 h in three consecutive days. After this treatment, the indices of oxidative stress and antioxidant enzyme activity were assayed in fish gill, muscle and hepatopancreas ...

New myxosporean species are described from Indian fishes cultured in pond farms of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh (UP) state. Based upon plasmodia found in the Indian major carps ( Catla catla, Cirrhinus cirrh
Recent research suggests the common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is often invasive in the North American Midwest due to its propensity to exploit shallow basins prone to winter hypoxia for reproduction. It has been shown that seasonally hypoxic basins often support extremely high abundances of young-of-the-year carp, but the fate of these carp is unknown. To determine whether these proposed nurseries serve as a source of recruits at a watershed scale, we used a population genetics approach to investigate carp recruitment in a system of interconnected lakes, ponds, and wetlands in central Minnesota. We collected carp tissue samples (n=939) from all basins throughout the watershed and from individuals moving between lakes and proposed nurseries. Microsatellite analysis revealed 2 genetically distinct strains of carp within the watershed. The spatial distribution and movement patterns observed among the genetically distinct strains of carp revealed patterns in dispersal, colonization, and natal homing ...

Abstract : Several interspecific and interganeric hybrids of Indian major carps : Catla catla, Labeo rohita, Cirrhinus mrigala and Labeo calbasu (Chaudhuri 1959, 1971 & 1973; Naseem Hamza 1971; Naseem Hamza & Alikunhi, 1971; Varghese & Sukumaran, 1971; Chondar 1977) and those of Indian major carps with exotic carps viz. common carp (Alikunhi & Chaudhuri 1959; Kowtal & Gupta 1984, Khan et al; 1986 and Gupta et al; 1986) and silver carp (Ibrahim et al; 1980) have been artificially produced through hypophysation. From natural ecosystems such as reservoir and dry bundhs, several hybrids have been recorded (Desai & Rao, 1970; Tripathi et al; 1974, Tripathi and Sharaf 1974; Natarajan et al; 1976 & Prasad 1976). Many of these hybrids were found to be intermediate in characters of the parent species. Only a few hybrids, both artificially produced and naturally occurring, have been studied in detail for their cultural qualities and adaptability to various environments. In the present communication an ...
Tripartite motif-containing protein 32 (TRIM32) belongs to the tripartite motif (TRIM) family, which consists of a large number of proteins containing a RING (Really Interesting New Gene) domain, one or two B-box domains, and coiled coil motif followed by different C-terminal domains. The TRIM family is known to be implicated in multiple cellular functions, including antiviral activity. However, it is presently unknown whether TRIM32 of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) has the antiviral effect. In this study, the sequence, expression, and antiviral function of TRIM32 homolog from common carp were analyzed. The full-length coding sequence region of trim32 was cloned from common carp. The results showed that the expression of TRIM32 (mRNA) was highest in the brain, remained stably expressed during embryonic development, and significantly increased following spring viraemia of carp virus (SVCV) infection. Transient overexpression of TRIM32 in affected Epithelioma papulosum cyprinid cells led to significant
This study set out to improve our understanding of the molecular genetic characteristics of imported strains of common carp reared in the Czech Republic. To do this we characterized the genetic diversity and population structure of 11 carp strains including two farmed strains from Germany (Scheuerman and Glinzig mirror carp) and France (Forez and Dombez scaly carp), one farmed population from Amur river basins, and one feral population from the Ebro River (Spain), by microsatellite analysis of 10 loci. Mean heterozygosity within populations ranged from 0.584 to 0.700, and the mean number of alleles per population ranged from 5.0 to 9.8. Of the analysed loci, 92 out of 130 possible tests were found to deviate significantly (P | 0.05) from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium revealing significant heterozygote deficit after Bonferroni correction. Global analysis of hierarchical gene diversity (AMOVA) further revealed that the total genetic variation among populations was 21%, whilst variation within
Examination of common carp Cyprinus carpio, carrying implanted telemetry transmitters, showed that wound healing was incomplete after 4 months and completed after 1 year. Granulation tissue, which encapsulated the transmitter, adhered to the intestine and liver. The liver was infiltrated by the granulation tissue after 1 year. Epidermal tissue grew down the channel for the antenna, establishing a potential pathway for pathogens. No signs of infections, however, were found ...

This book is being published in order to highlight a little-known aspect of animal husbandry in former times, namely the keeping, storing and cultivation of crucian carp (Carassius carassius ), carp (Cyprinus carpio), tench (Tinca tinca) and other cyprinids in man-made ponds... The construction of fishponds began across Europe, and increased rapidly during the twelfth and thirteenth century. At that time, fishponds were constructed on estates belonging to bishops, monasteries and royalty across England... The balance of evidence now indicates that fishponds were introduced into Britain after the Norman Conquest (1066) as a secular aristocratic initiative rather than a monastic innovation... The abundance of literary references to fishponds shows that their possession, along with mills, dovecotes and deer parks, was one of the privyleges of manorial landholders, a badge of rank as much as a practical utility... Many royal castles, palaces, manor-houses and hunting-lodges were equipped with ...
Teleost IL-4/13B is a cytokine related to mammalian IL-4 and IL-13, of which hitherto the function had not been studied at the protein level. We identified an IL-4/13B gene in common carp (Cyprinus carpio) and expressed the recombinant protein (rcIL-4/13B). RcIL-4/13B was shown to stimulate proliferation of IgM+ B cells, because after four days of stimulation the IgM+ fraction of carp kidney and s ...

The present study was done to find rapid and accurate identification of bacterial species which will help in prevention and cure of diseases in various aquatic animals. Phenotypic identification of bacterial isolates was done by conventional tests and commercial methods. Antibiotic sensitivity study revealed only gatifloxacin and chloramphenicol were found to be effective, both inhibited 83.33% sensitivity to the bacterial strains. Prevalence study revealed that aeromoniais were the dominant disease. The identities of selected bacterial strains were further confirmed by molecular characterization through 16S rDNA analysis. In 1.2% agarose gel electrophoresis, approximately 1.5 kbp bands were obtained by PCR amplification. In 2% agarose gel electrophoresis, approximately 675 bp and 1100 bp bands were obtained by PCR amplification for two Flavobacterium columnare specific primers set. Among the 7 isolates, 2 were identified as Commonas aquatica (accession number KT716080) and Aeromonas hydrophila

Hepatotoxic microcystins (MCs) are produced by cyanobacteria in diverse water bodies and the pathophysiology includes induction of reactive oxygen species and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) depletion in cells. In this study, we evaluated MCs induced changes in the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system in mitochondria of crucian carp liver. Fish were subdivided into two groups that were intraperitoneally injected with two doses of MCs (50 and 200 MC-LReq μg/kg bw) and were sacrificed at 1, 3, 12, 24, and 48 h postinjection. The activities of five enzyme complexes of electron transport chain and mRNA expression of mitochondrial-encoded genes (cox1, cox2, cox3, and atp6) were significantly reduced in a time-dependent pattern after injection. There were also changes in mitochondrial ultrastructure, decreases in ATPase activities and reduction in antioxidant level after MCs exposure. Disorder in the OXPHOS system and decreased activities of antioxidative enzymes might contribute to bioenergy ...
PURDUE (US) - One of the more promising ideas for controlling or eliminating invasive Asian carp in the Midwests rivers is impractical and unsafe, according to new research. Scientists had hoped to modify or expand low-voltage electrical barriers like those used around Chicago waterways to direct fish from particular areas.. [sources]. The level of electricity needed to kill Asian carp eggs in the rivers where the invasive species has spread would be far too high, says Reuben Goforth, an assistant professor of aquatic community ecology in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University.. "We were really hoping this would be a viable way to control these Asian carp," says Goforth, whose findings were published in the early online version of Transactions of the American Fisheries Society. "We really need to look at other methods.". The several species known as Asian carp-silver carp, black carp, and bighead carp-are not native to US waterways but have been found in rivers ...
Percent Weight Change Data: The model was run continuously on a daily time step for seasonal intervals (Spring: March thru May; Summer: June thru August; Fall: September thru November) as well as contiguously from Spring to Fall to assess total growth over the likely growing season (March thru November). CSV files represent the simulated weight change (%) of Bighead and Silver Carp for the respective time periods associated with the file name. Initial fish mass for each seasonal interval and growing season was 4350 g for Silver Carp and 5480 g for Bighead Carp. Maximum and mean total weight change (%) was determined for three depth ranges (near surface depths [NS]: 0 - 10 m; deep chlorophyll layer depths [DCL]: 10 - 50 m; and whole water column [WC]). Coordinates are in decimal degrees. File naming convention: speciesSeasonWtChange (e.g. bigheadFallWtChange = % weight change of Bighead Carp from September through November) , Monthly Habitat Quality Data: Rdata files contain matrices of Bighead ...

Seattle Mariners first baseman Mike Carp has been voted the August recipient of the Gillette presents American League Rookie of the Month Award.. Carp led A.L. rookies with 25 RBI and tied for the lead with eight doubles. In 27 games during August, the left-handed hitting slugger batted .313 (35-for-112) with six home runs and 15 runs scored while posting a .545 slugging percentage and a .353 on-base percentage. The 25-year-old ranked second among A.L. rookies in hits and tied for second in home runs. Carp also tied a Mariners rookie record for RBI in a single month, matching the 25 RBI collected by Danny Tartabull in July 1986. The Long Beach, California native collected a hit in each of his first 18 August contests to bring his career-best hitting streak to 20 games dating back to July. Over the streak, Carp hit .363 (29-for-80) with four home runs and 19 RBI. On August 15th against the Blue Jays at Safeco Field, Carp went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs to lift the Mariners over Toronto, 6-5. ...

The whole broodstock of two Hungarian common carp farms-80 and 196 individuals-was analyzed by using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assay and microsatellite analysis. Ten polymorphic RAPD markers and four microsatellites were selected to genotype both of the stocks. As expected, microsatellite analysis revealed more detailed information on genetic diversities than RAPD assay. Results obtained with both types of DNA markers showed lack of major differences between the genetic structure of the two stocks: heterozygosity values and allele frequencies were very similar. Dendrograms created from both sets of data did not show grouping of individuals according to stocks. Genotypes from the two stocks were also compared to those from a limited number of samples collected from other hatcheries and two rivers. Allele frequencies in the groups were similar, with the exception of wild carps. An interesting observation was that three private microsatellite alleles were found in the eight wild carp ...

University of Minnesota researchers see a recent fish virus outbreak as a chance to combat an invasive species plaguing state lakes. Researchers at the Universitys Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC) in St. Paul have been studying the usage of Koi herpesvirus (KHV) - responsible for recent carp deaths in Minnesota lakes - for potential bio-control of invasive carp. Koi fish are a subspecies of common carp, making them both susceptible to the virus.
The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee s (ACRCC) has announced the release of its Fiscal Year 2017 Action Plan.. The Action Plan document details 60 high-priority strategic measures designed to manage the threat of four species of invasive Asian carp in the Great Lakes, the ACRCC said in a statement released today.. The plan serves as a foundation for the work of the ACRCC partnership a collaboration of 27 U.S. and Canadian federal, state, provincial, and local agencies and organizations. The 2017 plan builds on prior strategies by applying lessons learned through research and additions of new technologies and control measures, the ACRCC said. The plan also carries forward a new interagency contingency response plan developed for potential rapid-response to detections of Asian carp at all life stages in unexpected areas of the upper Illinois River and Chicago Area Waterway System. This Action Plan continues to show our unified resolve to keep Asian Carp from invading the Great Lakes, ...
09.22.2006 The Carp. (by Sławomir Mrożek). We have to buy a carp for the holidays. To keep the carp alive that long, you have to keep him in the tub. But to put him in the tub, you have to take out the coal. You can store the coal in the hallway, but then where do you put the potatoes? We thought about it, thought about it, and then my mother-in-law came up with a solution: you put the potatoes in the kitchen, the coal in the hallway, and the carp in the bathtub. All right, but then what do you do with the bunnies? Move them out of the kitchen, of course. Thats easy to say. But where to? We talked about it, talked about it, and finally came up with the idea of putting the bunnies in the basement. But grandpa is in the basement. What to do with grandpa? We can put grandpa over where the television is, but then where do we put the television? We could put the television over where the lodger has his folding bed. But then where would the lodger sleep? The lodger could sleep in the bathtub, but ...

According to a collaborative report led by the ministrys Yangtze River Fishery Resources Management Commission Office, the ecological system of the upper branches of the Yangtze River has collapsed and as a result many precious fish species are now on the brink of extinction.. […] A long-term data monitoring system located in the upper branch of the river by the Chinese Academy of Sciences also proved the reports to be true. According to aquatic experts, the number of the four carp types - black carp, grass carp, silver carp and bighead carp, which used to be abundant in the river - has also plummeted from 30 billion to no more than 100 million in the past 60 years.. […] Many experts call on the government to control the development in an appropriate scale in a bid to counter the deteriorating eco-environment in the Yangtze River, make a new and feasible evaluation of the dams, especially the small ones, and encourage research on and natural conservation of the living aquatic species. ...
Most people think viruses would kill a mess of fish, or, on the other end of the spectrum, that viruses do not matter in Koi Health. Both would be wrong.

Three experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of dietary supplementation of a ß-(1,3)(1,6)-D-glucan derived from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, on growth performance parameters and intestinal functionality in mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) and on progression of a chronic, pre-existing mycobacteriosis in zebrafish (Danio rerio). The 1st experiment revealed that mirror carp fed diets containing 1% and 2% ß-glucan showed significant improvements in growth performance compared to fish fed both the control and the 0.1% ß-glucan containing diet. Equally, fish fed diets supplemented with 1% and 2% ß-glucan displayed significantly higher infiltration of leukocytes into the epithelial layer of in the anterior intestine. This effect was not observed in the posterior intestine. There were no significant differences in the intestinal absorptive surface area and number of goblet cells in either intestinal region. Compared to control fed fish, the haematocrit value was significantly ...

DANBURY - Armed with a single detector on the 5,400 acres of Candlewood Lake, Western Connecticut State University professor Theodora Pinous first goal was to find the 48 grass carp released with tracking devices in their bellies. The 48 fish, carrying surgically inserted radio transmitters, were released last summer to eat the milfoil and to help researchers understand carp behavior. Researchers also sought to ensure the fish werent leaving the lake through a pipe at the northern end that connects to the Housatonic River. Since the state requires that the fish be kept isolated from other bodies of water, none were released in the northern arm of the lake. Pinou reported that one of 12 tagged fish released from the northernmost stocking station swam towards the pipe, but it stopped at a patch of milfoil before reaching the pipe.
The Netherlands is also recognized for their incredible dairy and cheese products. Perhaps what they are not as well known for, are the potatoes and corn. Now, put it all together and imagine a monstrous carp that was big enough for five dinners along with leftover boiled potatoes and corn. It was a recipe that we would call "Dutch fish cakes" in modern terms, but was nothing more than fancy leftovers at the time. Netherlands is home to a variety of fish species, including bullhead, mullet, and different species of carp, and if anyone was lucky enough to obtain one, it definitely got turned into a meal.. I bring this up, to reflect on a possible "what-if" scenario around if people who lived along the Illinois River were in the same situation, looking for sustenance and nourishment in whatever was available around them. The exploding population of invasive carp is palatable protein if people would try to find a way to cook it. Families and communities could be supplied with an ample amount of ...
The Carp River Loop is undergoing a transformation from one of the original trails in the network to one of the newest and best.. The loop, which crosses the Carp River on a seasonal bridge has a history as a mostly 2 track trail, connected where needed by short sections of singletrack.. That all began to change though several years ago when the first section of the Gorge-ous trail was built. The original trail which dropped down onto the hillside above the Carp River gave hikers and bikers a breath taking view of the river and its small rapids along with the gorge it flows through. That first section of trail has been extended both at the beginning and the end creating one of the most scenic trails in the network.. The trail begins out the back of the 553 trailhead on the joint Gorgeous/Grom entrance. It climbs gently up some easy switchbacks to the point where it crosses the Mt. Marquette access road. It continues fairly flat with some fun rollers until it crosses the old jeep trail (which ...
This is a top feeding trigger among amino acids. It is considered as the most required amino acid for carp in a balanced or high nutritional value bait. Adding the right amino acids will make a valued addition to every kind of bait. It increases the palatability of feed offerings. Research at several universities worldwide has demonstrated that certain amino acids are highly attractive to carp and that they will stimulate feeding. In tests with single amino acid supplements the most intense carp feeding reaction was to this amino acid, it indicated that L-lysine was the best olfactory stimulant. It is difficult to find for fish for it is not plentiful present in natural food. Some crustaceans contain high levels of L-lysine, like krill and mussels. Appearance: white crystaline powder / ...

Joe Saunders was dressed in Mariners workout gear and sitting in front of his locker in the clubhouse in Peoria this morning, but his signing didnt become official till later in the day as the Mariners had to make room on their 40-man roster for him.. The casualty was first baseman/designated hitter Mike Carp, who was designated for assignment. The team will have 10 days to either trade, release or outright Carp.. Saunders, 31, signed a one-year contract that is reportedly worth around $7 million. Last season, in 28 combined starts with the Diamondbacks (21) and Orioles (7), he went 9-3 with a 4.07 ERA.. In eight big league seasons, Saunders has accumulated a 78-65 record with a 4.15 ERA in 189 career starts. He is also quite familiar with Safeco Field having pitched for the Angels. Hes made nine starts, posting a 6-0 record with a 2.13 ERA.. Carp, 26, was acquired in a three-team trade from the Mets in 2008. He appeared in 173 games over four seasons with the Mariners, hitting .255 ...

The habitat of an organism is "the place where it lives", whereas the ecological niche, a term coined by Elton in 1927, can br termed as "the position or status of an organism within its community and ecosystem resulting from the organisms structural and functional adaptations". By analogy, it is often said that habitat is the organisms "address" and the niche is its "profession".. The concept of ecological niche is of much interest to the aquaculturist, for it is around it that the practice of "polyculture" of fishes is centred. The wellknown examples are the polyculture of Chinese and Indian carps including in some cases a predator species also. Here it is basically the complete exploitation of the feeding niches in the water body as examplified by the mixing of surface feeders, some depending predominantely on phytoplankton (silver carp), some on zooplankton (Catla), columinn feeders (rohu), bottom feeders (common carp and mrigal), feeders of aquatic (grass carp) and predators (snakeheads). ...
The aim of the present study was to induced breeding of H. molitrix and to observe gonads maturation after the injections with the synthetic hormone Nerestin. Males and females of H. molitrix were provided from the Cârja farm 1-from Vaslui county. All the breedings were injected with Nerestin 1, the females received two doses of 20%, respectively 80% of the total dose, within 24 hours, and the males received only the two doses representing 1/3 and 2/3 of the dose total administered to females. For histological examination, oocyte samples were collected from adult H. molitrix females. The sampling periods overlapped with the maturation period after the vitellogenesis (April-May 2016) and ovulation, which took place in June 2016. The ovulation process is determined by internal factors and assured by the normal development of the body; in the case of induced breeding is triggered by the administered gonadotrophic stimulants. Our results showed that in order to obtain good quality eggs a great ...
MLP (muscle LIM protein)-deficient mice count among the first mouse models for dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), yet the exact role of MLP in cardiac signalling processes is still enigmatic. Elevated PKCα signalling activity is known to be an important contributor to heart failure. Here we show that MLP directly inhibits the activity of PKCα. In end-stage DCM, PKCα is concentrated at the intercalated disc of cardiomyocytes, where it is sequestered by the adaptor protein CARP in a multiprotein complex together with PLCβ1. In mice deficient for both MLP and CARP the chronic PKCα signalling chain at the intercalated disc is broken and they remain healthy. Our results suggest that the main role of MLP in heart lies in the direct inhibition of PKCα and that chronic uninhibited PKCα activity at the intercalated disc in the absence of functional MLP leads to heart failure.

Following a southerly wind is one of the oldest rules in the book, and Ian Redmond used this simple piece of watercraft to help himself to a brace of 30lb-plus commons, topped by this 34lb 2oz specimen from a Nene Valley stillwater.. After a bit of work with his marker rod, the 39-year-old located a suitable clear spot among two weed beds at 55yds range on the 24-acre venue. This then received an initial baiting of 2kg of the new Grange boilies from. Mainline, and was kept topped-up with a further kilo during each day of his five-day session.. After a slow start, a screaming take on the second night, followed by a spirited fight, resulted in his new pb common being banked. This was backed up the following morning with another fish of 32lb 4oz.. But it wasnt all plain sailing for the Preston-based bricklayer, as he also lost two good carp.. "When I arrived at the lake I couldnt see any fish showing, but there was a warm southerly wind, so I knew the carp would follow it," he told Angling Times. ...

The complement system is a major humoral component of vertebrate defenses for tagging and killing target microorganisms. Recent molecular analyses have uncovered a striking feature of bony fish complement, namely that several complement components are encoded by multiple genes. In this review, the structural diversity of C3, C4, C5, factor B, C2, C1r/s and MASP are discussed with special reference to their functional differentiation, mainly focusing on the common carp (Cyprinus carpio), a tetraploidized teleost. In carp, all the members (C3, C4, C5 and a non-complement protein alpha2-macroglobulin) of the thioester-containing protein family are present in multiple isotypes, differing in the primary structures of various functional sites. Three factor B/C2-like isotypes identified in carp showed distinct expression pattern (sites and inducibility), with one behaving as an acute-phase reactant. Two C1r/C1s/MASP2-like isotypes also contain an amino acid substitution that likely affects their substrate

Glucan was extracted from yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and subjected to chemical analy- ses. Thin layer chromatography (TLC) revealed that glucan is primarily composed of glucose units and contains 97.2% glucose. Infrared spectrum showed a major band at 883/cm, suggest- ing that glucan is linked to β-glycosidic. Intraperitoneal administration of different doses of glu- can enhanced the survival rate of carp (Cyprinus carpio) infected by Aeromonas hydrophila. When a concentration above 500 μg glucan per fish was administered, survival relative to the uninfected control was 100%. The total leukocyte count and neutrophil and monocyte popula- tions increased after administration of the glucan. The maximum effect occurred on day 6 after injection. Macrophages of compound-administrated test animals significantly increased produc- tion of superoxide anions, efficiently killing the bacterial pathogen. This study showed that glu- can can be effective in inducing non-specific cellular defense ...

Koi herpesvirus disease (KHV) is a listed disease under The Aquatic Animal Health (England and Wales) Regulations 2009. KHV outbreaks have been subject to statutory controls in the UK since 2007. The UK maintains a surveillance programme for this disease.. When the FHI confirm an outbreak, they take steps to control and, wherever possible, remove the disease. This may involve movement controls on susceptible species in the affected area, enhanced biosecurity, culling of fish, and cleaning and disinfecting of the premises.. Once statutory controls are in place the site operators must write to the FHIto get permission to move live fish into, out of, or within the designated area, and to make material changes to the site or site activities. This also applies to fish eggs and gametes.. ...
Eli chose the right bait for the job, and even baited the lines as I showed him how to bait hair rigs and tie PVA stringers. This catch marks the earliest open water carp weve caught, previous best was first week of April. He is now the proud holder of that new family record. That was the only carp we caught all day, no other hits or runs. With a cold front coming in next week, carping might be tough, so I may have to switch the target species if I get out on the water again soon ...
