This is the first study that presents concentrations of domoic acid detected in the whole shellfish tissue from breeding and harvesting areas along the Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea during the period 2006 to 2008. Shellfish sample analyses after SAX cleaning procedures, using a UV-DAD-HPLC system, showed the presence of domoic acid in four species. The most prevalent of those species were the blue mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis), followed by European flat oyster (Ostrea edulis), Mediterranean scallop (Pecten jacobaeus) and proteus scallop (Flexopecten proteus). Domoic acid, a potentially lethal phycotoxin that causes amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP), was detected for the first time in January 2006 with the highest value of 6.5486 μg g-1 in whole shellfish tissue. Pseudo-nitzschia spp. bloom events preceded these high domoic acid concentrations. According to this study, retention of domoic acid in the blue mussel M. galloprovincialis is more than 42 days. This investigation indicates the first
The (Chilean) flat oyster, Ostrea chilensis, is native to New Zealand and the west coast of South America. It is a commercially important species in New Zealand because of its exquisite taste that attracts premium prices. This thesis describes the first isolation and partial charcterisation of an oyster haemolymph calcium-dependent carbohydrate-binding protein. This protein chiletin was originally isolated from oyster haemolymph by binding to the agarose-galactan matrix of a Sepharose column. Chiletin was predominantly composed of a 24 kilodalton (kDa) band when examined with one-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under non-reducing conditions and a 12 kDa band with reduction of disulphide bonds. The N-terminal sequence of the 24 kDa band was determined to be IAGPGWEKYN. This sequence was not homologous to any known protein. Examination of isolated chiletin with two-dimensional protein analysis gel electrophoresis revealed the presence of three (~12 kDa) ...

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years.. In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs ("foreign invaders," like the flu). Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your bodys healthy tissues ("auto" means "self") and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.. Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better).. These are some additional facts about lupus that you should know:. ...
The symptoms of vasculitis depend on the particular blood vessels that are involved by the inflammatory process.. Different types of vasculitis involve blood vessels in characteristic locations throughout the body. For example, Giant Cell Arteritis typically involves the medium- to large-sized blood vessels supplying the head and neck, but rarely involves the blood vessels of the kidneys. In contrast, Wegeners Granulomatosis (GPA) frequently involves the kidneys, very often the lungs, and almost always the upper respiratory tract, but rarely blood vessels to the brain. As depicted in the image below, Buergers disease involves the fingers and (toes). Gangrene can result from a profound lack of blood flow..

Adaptation to culture conditions and feeding behaviour of common sole (Solea solea), which caught from natural environment, were investigated in this research. Soles were captured in March-April 2007 period from Izmir Bay by trawl and gill nets. During preliminary adaptation of totally 270 soles, antibiotic treatment (furozolidon added 100 ppm for 60 min./day) was applied for first five days in dark environment. In culture conditions, squid (Loligo vulgaris), long-yawed plume worm (Diopatra neopolitana), mediterranean mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis), razor clam (Solen marginatus), oyster (Ostrea edulis), patella (Patella spp.), sea snail (Monodonta turbinata) and fresh sardine (Sardine pilchardus) were used for first feeding. Soles started to feed in 0-2 days and long-yawed plume worm was the most preferred species. After adaptation period of one month, the survival rate (58%) of soles which were caught using gill nets was found out significantly higher than the survival rate (29%) of soles ...

Donegal Sinn Féin County Councillor, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has slammed the Irish Government over the Bonamia outbreak on Lough Foyle. Bonamia is a parasitic disease that permanently destroys the commercial potential of the natural oyster fisheries it infects. Lough Foyle oyster fishermen estimate up to 200 jobs will be permanently lost as a result of the outbreak. He said that the responsibility for the outbreak lies in the first instance with the Irish Governments Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources (DCMNR), for consistently failing to put in place legislation that would have extended powers to the Loughs Agency to provide for the regulation of sea fisheries within Lough Foyle and the licensing of marine aquaculture. Cllr Mac Lochlainn said: "This is an absolutely devastating blow to the fishing community in the area. Essentially this outbreak has permanently wiped out one of the finest natural oyster fisheries in Europe. The natural oyster beds on Lough Foyle are one ...
The high-resolution seismic stratigraphy of the Galicia Bank Region and adjacent deposits of the neighbouring Iberian and Biscay Abyssal Plains was included as part of the geological studies conducted in the area where the oil-tanker Prestige wreck is located. This seismic stratigraphy is characterized by five seismic units (5 to 1, from oldest to youngest) lying above an irregular acoustic basement defined by a highly fractured system of horsts and grabens. These faulted systems have controlled the local depositional architecture, deforming, fracturing, relocating and distributing sediments since the Valanginian. Three depositional models of facies can be recognized on the Galicia Bank Region and surrounding abyssal plains: bank, escarpment, and abyssal plain facies. The bank facies reflects the depositional evolution from initial filling to obliterating stages of the horsts and grabens. The escarpment facies has a local distribution and represents deposition associated with active slopes of ...

Regular readers will know that Im schizophrenic about the EU. I have always believed it would one day collapse under the weight of its own internal contradictions but, as someone with all his assets in Spain, Im not happy about the possibility of the break-up of the eurozone and the possible devaluation of the Spanish currency. So I sit on the fence. But not those long-time eurosceptics Ambrose Evans-Pritchard and Simon Heffer, who now appear to be hovering like schadenfreudistic vultures over events on the Continent. In a piece dated 23 Feb., Ambrose kicked off with - "The ultra-Europeans have overplayed their hand. We can now glimpse a chain of events that will halt, and reverse, this extremist push towards an Über-state that almost no one wants." Then later added - "As the Bundesbank warned long ago, EMU will eventually buckle under strain over time without the cement of political union. This means a de facto EU treasury, a unified wage system, and the plausible prospect of a debt and ...
It would seem indeed that reality has shown itself so angular and hard-featured to the Spanish that they gladly make efforts to escape from it. While no nation shows so great a courage, endurance and patient endeavour in misfortune and defeat, they are not equally successful in success, they are often spoilt by prosperity and become weak, dissolute and frivolous ; they must have something to fight, and fall when they no longer press against opposition. This may account for the fact that the poorer classes are still, as in Fords time, "by no means the worst portion of the population." The peasants are courteous, intelligent, patient, energetic and persevering : their praises have been sung by many writers.(31) But a pathetic fatalism and apathy prevail, and a great bitterness against those in authority. Pobreza nunca alza cabeza, poverty never raises its head, they say, la carcel y la cuaresma para los pobres es hecha, prison and Lent are for the poor ; they look for no bettering of their lot, ...
The Spanish conservative party [the PP] is headed up by a Galician, Mr Marion Rajoy. Putting aside his forename, its a little difficult for him to portray himself as a credible Presidential alternative - even to an incumbent nicknamed Bambi - when hes so obviously powerless to solve the huge problems in which the Galician branch of the party is mired. Youll recall the 82 year old Galician Xunta President, Miguel Fraga, was defeated in the recent elections but then vowed to fight on as Leader of the Opposition until he pops his clogs. A meeting of Rajoy and Fraga this week was followed by an announcement which El Mundo dismissed as a typical piece of Galician obfuscation. Whatever, no one is any clearer as to if and when Fraga will depart the scene other in a coffin. So the below-the-surface feud over his eventual successor will continue to fester for a while yet. For now, Mr Fraga has called with body and soul for harmony within the party. Pretty rich coming from the guy whos totally ...

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has today confirmed the detection of Bonamia ostreae in 2 oyster farms on Stewart Island.. Bonamia ostreae is a parasite that can be fatal for flat oysters. It has been in New Zealand since at least 2015 in the Marlborough Sounds and Nelson, but this is the first time it has been found in another area of New Zealand.. There is no food safety issue from eating oysters with Bonamia ostreae. Fresh, good quality New Zealand oysters continue to be safe to eat.. "Bonamia Ostreae is a naturally occurring parasite and is difficult to contain and eradicate as it spreads easily through ocean currents and on vessels," says MPI Biosecurity Surveillance and Incursion Manager Brendan Gould.. "This particular strain of Bonamia has been in New Zealand since at least 2015, however strains have been here since the 1960s and are present in the marine environment.". MPIs priority is determining the extent of the issue and limiting further spread.. Extensive sampling to ...
Tandem and interspersed repetitive DNA sequences make up a large part of eukaryotic genomes, being present also in bivalve molluscs (class Bivalvia). Recently sequenced genome of Crassostrea gigas shows high abundance of repetitive sequences (36 %). In this work, using bioinformatic approach, 10 most abundant types of tandemly repeated sequences were found. Taking into account monomer lengths typical for satellite DNA and the ability of forming long arrays, these tandem repetas are potentially new satellite DNAs. On the other hand, they are quite special in being inserted into transposons. In fact, a detailed analysis of their flanking regions showed that they bear structural characteristics typical for non - autonomous mobile genetic elements of the Helitron superfamily. The presence of such elements was investigated in the related species Ostrea edulis. A close connection between Helitrons and tandem repeats has been identified and two models for satellite spreading from transposable elements ...
In the 13th century, King Andrew II of Hungary claimed the title Rex Galiciae et Lodomeriae ("King of Galicia and Lodomeria")[7][10][11] - a Latinised version of the Slavic names Halych and Volodymyr, the major cities of the principality of Halych-Volhynia, which the Hungarians ruled from 1214 to 1221. Halych-Volhynia cut a swathe as a mighty principality under the reign of Roman the Great in 1170-1205. After the expulsion of the Hungarians in 1221, Ruthenians took back rule of the area. Romans son Daniel of Galicia was crowned king of Halych-Volhynia. He founded Lviv (Leopolis), named in honour of his son Leo I, who later moved the capital from Halych to Lviv.. The Ukrainian name Halych (Галич) (Halicz in Polish, Галич in Russian, Galic in Latin) comes from the Khwalis[citation needed] or Kaliz[citation needed] who occupied the area from the time of the Magyars. They were also called Khalisioi[citation needed] in Greek, and Khvalis (Хваліс) in Ukrainian. Some historians[a] ...
This work has been developed in the context of a region with a recent industry of seaweeds for human consumption. It is well known that algae are one of the organisms containing the highest concentrations of iodine (I), an essential trace element for humans. Nevertheless there is still a lack of information about the nature of the iodinated compounds present in algae and on their bioavailability. The main objectives of this PhD thesis were to study in depth the I content from edible seaweeds harvested in Galicia (northwestern Spain), the chemical nature of the iodinated species and its bioavailability in human beings ...

This research team completed the most comprehensive quantitative survey undertaken on any minority language in the world, interviewing over 2% of Galicias population with a questionnaire composed of almost 200 items. This robust database was used to analyze in this volume crucial issues in macrosociolinguistic research such as mother tongue, the four language skills -listening, speaking, reading and writing- and language acquisition ambience (family, work, school, friends, or neighbors). Language skills are analyzed not only for the speaker but also for their parents and grandparents generations.

THE hardest problem for the authors of Spain s democratic constitution was to strike a balance between the central government and the claims of Catalonia, the Basque country and Galicia for home rule. The formula they came up with was known as café para todos, or coffee for all: Spain was divided into 17 autonomous communities (plus the enclave cities of Ceuta and Melilla on the Moroccan coast), each with its own elected parliament and government. This estado de las autonomías seemed a neat solution. Over the past 30 years more and more powers and money have been devolved. The regional governments are now responsible for schools, universities, health, social services, culture, urban and rural development and, in some places, policing. But it is becoming clear that even as it has solved some problems, decentralisation has created others ...
