Sappinia pedata is a species of Amoebozoa. Sappinia is a free-living amoeba (a single-celled organism), found in the environment. There are two known species of Sappinia: Sappinia diploidea and Sappinia pedata. Sappinia can cause a disease similar to GAE, However only one case of GAE due to Sappinia infection has ever been reported. In 1998, a healthy 38-year-old man from Texas was found to be infected with Sappinia pedata. Although the patient was hospitalized, he survived without any long-term consequences.

The genus Sappinia with the single species Sappinia pedata was established for an amoeba with two nuclei and pedicellate cysts by Dangeard in 1896. In 1912, Alexeieff transferred an also double nucleated, but apparently sexually reproducing amoeba to this genus as Sappinia diploidea that had been described as Amoeba diploidea by Hartmann and Nägler in 1908. Molecular analyses have confirmed the differentiation between S. pedata and S. diploidea; however, the genus splits into more than two well separated clusters. The genus Sappinia is now classified as a member of the Thecamoebidae and, moreover, as potentially pathogenic. Subacute or chronic CNS infections due to Acanthamoeba spp, Balamuthia mandrillaris, and Sappinia spp., which occasionally cause cerebral abscess, are termed granulomatous amebic encephalitis (GAE). In 2001, Gelman and colleagues reported a case of severe encephalitis in an immunocompetent young man caused by Sappinia. Another case of GAE and abscess formation was reported ...

The individual animal is currently a major focus of behavioural research and an increasing number of studies raise the question of how between-individual behavioural consistency and behavioural plasticity interact. Applying the reaction norm concept on groups, our study addresses both of these aspects in one framework and within an animals natural social environment. Risk-taking behaviour in 1-year-old perch Perca fluviatilis was assayed in aquarium experiments before and after the fish were subjected to the presence or absence of a piscivorous predator for 3weeks. To analyse the inter-individual behavioural variation across the repeated measurements, we dissected the behavioural change across the predator treatment into individual constant and plastic components using hierarchical mixed-effects models. During the predator treatment, juvenile perch increased in boldness and decreased in vigilance, the magnitude of these behavioural changes was influenced by group composition. However, the ...

Understanding water-related diseases. Four types of water-related diseases. There are many different kinds of pathogens, parasites, viruses and bacteria that can be found in water. The four different types of water-related diseases include:. Waterborne diseases. These are what are known as diseases that are transmitted via drinking water like cholera and typhoid.. Water-washed or water-scarce diseases. This refers to diseases that tend to spread when there is a scarcity of water. The act of washing ones hands is among the most effective means of preventing infection, but when water is scarce routine tasks such as this often get neglected. When there is less water, or less clean water, available for proper hygiene habits, such as for use in lavatories, as well as for regular washing of hands and washing of food during preparation, diseases tend to spread more easily. Water based diseases. These are diseases that infect the body via contact. This means that bathing or swimming in water ...

A total of 18 farmed turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) were slaughtered over 4 successive weeks in November 2012 and stored in polystyrene boxes with ice until analyzed. The fish were stored between 1 and 22 d and presented to a taste panel and further analyzed for quality index method (QIM), microbiological analysis by real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR), taste, pH, color by computer imaging, protein denaturation with differential scanner calorimeter (DSC), texture hardness, and shear force. Results show small, but significant changes in physical and visual attributes such as texture and color. No gaping was observed. Only small changes in texture were observed explained by lack of myosin denaturation. The fillets became more white and yellow during storage, whereas the major changes occurred during the 1st week.

Honey mesquite is a single- to multi-stemmed, nitrogen-fixing, mostly deciduous, large shrub to medium-sized tree growing 1.5 to 35 feet tall. Its tiny, greenish-white to yellowish-white flowers have both male and female parts and are grouped tightly on elongated spikes that are somewhat showy, and droop. Flowering can begin on trees as early as three years of age. They are insect-, possibly wind-, and self-pollinated.. Honey mesquite grows in warm desert shrub communities and grasslands, and on plains, terraces, washes, and riparian sites, riverbanks, and bars, dry lakes, playas, hummocked dunes, mesas, and talus slopes where plants have access to permanent underground water. It is adapted to most soil types. Although it is found on hummocky sand dunes to calcareous clay, it grows best in medium- to fine-textured soils. It is a drought-tolerant plant.. ...

This class was anticipated by some biologists like Jahn, who grouped all amoebae with granular pseudopodia together,[1] but most split the lobose amoebae into testate Testacealobosia and naked Gymnamoebia. These latter are polyphyletic, but molecular trees by Bolivar et al.[2] identified a core monophyletic subgroup. Subsequent studies showed the testate lobose amoebae belong to the same group, which was thus renamed Lobosea sensu stricto[3] or Tubulinea.[4]. ...

At any one point in time, 50 percent of all people in the developing world will be in hospital suffering from one or more water-related diseases. Most will be children, water-related diseases being the second biggest killer of children worldwide (after acute respiratory diseases like Tuberculosis), according to Water Aid. (Diarrhea alone has killed more children in 10 years than all the people killed in wartime since World War 2, according to UNICEF).. The situation in the developing world will be particularly difficult moving forward, the U.N.s fourth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-4) is warning -- by 2025, it says, the developing worlds demand for water will have increased by 50 percent (the need of developed countries will have only increased by 18 percent)..

As part of the study of the ammonia budget over Great Dun Fell, measurements of fluxes of gaseous ammonia (NH3) with the hill surface (grass moorland and blanket bog) were made using micrometeorological techniques, to provide information on NH3 removal by the hill surface and on vertical concentration gradients. Measurements of vertical concentration, χ, profiles of NH3 concentration were coupled with turbulent diffusivities to determine fluxes, Fg deposition velocities, and canopy resistances, Rc to uptake by the ground. Consistent with published measurements for this site, NH3 was generally found to deposit efficiently to the vegetation canopy, with mean Rc of 5 and 27 s m− for example days shown. However, short periods of NH3 emission from the moorland were also observed at small χ (, 0.3 μgm−3). Under these conditions of bidirectional exchange, the Rc model does not adequately describe the exchange process, and an alternative model was applied, which treats both the resistance for ...

The effects of 2 injected bacterins, Vibrio damsela and Pasteurella piscicida O-antigen bacterins, on the cell type composition of the peripheral blood and head kidney and on the phagocytic activity of the head kidney leucocytes were studied in turbot Scophthalmus maximus L. Blood and head kidney samples were collected from treated and non-treated turbot at different times in the 168 h period after injection. The number of neutrophils increased markedly in the peripheral blood of P. piscicida O-antigen injected turbot 24 h after injection, being significantly higher (p , 0.01) than the neutrophil number in V. damsela O-antigen injected turbot. Forty-eight hours after injection, the numbers of head kidney neutrophils and macrophages in V. damsela and in P. piscicida O-antigen injected turbot increased significantly (p , 0.05) compared with those in saline-injected turbot while the neutrophils in the peripheral blood decreased in fish treated with each of the vaccines. Turbot neutrophils have ...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a group of small non-coding RNAs, which could bind to the 3′-untranslated regions of their target mRNAs to regulate gene expression in various biological processes, including immune-regulated signaling pathways. Turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.), an important commercial fish species in China, has been suffering with Vibrio anguillarum infection resulted in dramatic economic loss. Therefore, we investigated the expression profiles of miRNAs, as well as the immune-related miRNA-mRNA pairs in turbot intestine at 1 h, 4 h, and 12 h following V. anguillarum infection. As a result, 266 predicted novel miRNAs and 283 conserved miRNAs belonging to 92 miRNA families were detected. A total of 44 miRNAs were differentially expressed in the intestine following V. anguillarum infection. Following prediction, the potential target genes of differentially expressed miRNAs were grouped into a wide range of functional categories, including immune defense/evasion, inflammatory responses, ...

Fish consumption is a potential route of human exposure to the hepatotoxic microcystins, especially in lakes and reservoirs that routinely experience significant toxic Microcystis blooms. Understanding the rates of uptake and elimination for microcystins as well as the transfer efficiency into tissues of consumers are important for determining the potential for microcystins to be transferred up the food web and for predicting potential human health impacts. The main objective of this work was to conduct laboratory experiments to investigate the kinetics of toxin accumulation in fish tissue. An oral route of exposure was employed in this study, in which juvenile yellow perch (Perca flavescens) were given a single oral dose of 5 or 20 μg of microcystin-LR (MC-LR) via food and accumulation in the muscle, liver, and tank water were measured over 24 h. Peak concentrations of the water soluble fraction of microcystin were generally observed 8-10 h after dosing in the liver and after 12-16 h in the muscle,
Study site: This research was conducted on the Sevilleta LTER, located 100 km south of Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is an ecotonal landscape of Chihuahuan desert shrub and grasslands (Muldavin et al. 2008). Data were collected from a 0.9 x 0.5km strip of land that encompassed a flat bajada and a shallow rocky canyon of mixed desert shrub and grassland dominated by the creosote bush (Larrea tridentata) and black grama grass (Bouteloua eriopoda). Tissue collection & sample preparation for stable isotope analysis:. From May to October of 2005 and 2006 we collected plant, lizard, and arthropod tissues for carbon stable isotope analysis. During mid-summer of 2005, we randomly collected leaf and stem samples from the 38 most abundant species of plants; these species produce over 90% of the annual biomass on our study site (see Appendix Table A). Approximately 3.5 mg of plant material was then loaded into pre-cleaned tin capsules for isotope analysis. All animal research was conducted with the ...
To study the effect of morphometric attributes on body weight of the turbot Scophthalmus maximus,morphometric measurement was taken on 1120 3-month-old turbots sampled in a local company in Yantai,Shandong of China.The attributes used in this study include body length,total length,body depth,head length,length between snout tip and frontal of gill cleft,tail handle length,tail handle height,body width,and body weight.A correlation coefficient matrix was constructed,in which the body weight was used as the dependent variable and other attributes as independent variables for path analysis.The path coefficients(P_i),determination coefficients(d_i and d_ ij),and correlation index(R2) were calculated,and major morphometric attributes determined.The results showed that all the correlation coefficient between each independent variable and dependent variable(body weight) were significantly different(P0.01).The total length gave a predominant direct effect(0.720) and determinacy on the body weight,it is the key
