*  Can cytochalasin B be used as an inhibitor of feeding in grazing experiments on ciliates? - NERC Open Research Archive
The effects of cytochalasin B and dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) on ciliate ingestion and growth were investigated in laboratory cultures of the freshwater ciliate Tetrahymena pyriformis and the marine ciliate Uronema marinum, in order to assess whether cytochalasin B could be used to inhibit grazing selectively in natural ciliate communities. The ciliates were exposed to a final concentration of 0-10 μg ml−1 cytochalasin B dissolved in 0.4% DMSO, and to 0-0.4% DMSO only, for between 1 and 48 hours, then fed carmine particles as tracers of particle ingestion. DMSO had no effect on particle ingestion. Cytochalasin B reduced particle ingestion in U. marinum and T. pyriformis at respective concentrations of ≥0.1μg.ml−1 and ≥1.0 μg ml−1, achieving a maximum effect after 4-8 hours. The effect of cytochalasin B was greater on U. marinum, with a minimum of only 4% of the population feeding after 4 hours exposure to 10 μg ml−1, as compared to a minimum of 48% recorded ...

Mycobacterium Ulcerans is a third-world tropical disease, that just so happens to be running rampant on the Mornington Peninsula. I'm trying to persuade the state and federal governments to support research into it. Read on for more details.. Please support my cause and sign my petition. Ever heard of Mycobacterium Ulcerans?. Mycobacterium Ulcerans (Buruli or Bairnsdale Ulcer) is a third world tropical infection, that causes severe pain, inflammation and decomposition of tissue and fat. It's found mostly in African countries such as Uganda, Nigeria and Liberia. So mostly poor countries with poorly developed health systems. It's also found on the Mornington Peninsula. My name is Ella Crofts. I'm thirteen years old and I currently have Mycobacterium Ulcerans. I started feeling pain in my knee in early April. Slowly it got worse, with my knee becoming swollen and inflamed, until one day, the skin started breaking down. We tested the tissue, ...

ABSTRACT: Streptococcus iniae poses a serious threat to finfish aquaculture operations worldwide. Stringent regulatory standards limit the use of antibiotics to treat S. iniae infections; improved vaccination strategies are thus of great interest. We investigated the potential for efficient, non-injectable batch vaccination via the use of live attenuated vaccines. Three attenuated S. iniae strains with genetic mutations eliminating the production of virulence factors-capsular polysaccharide (ΔcpsD), M-like protein (ΔsimA), and phosphoglucomutase (Δ pgmA)-were evaluated in parallel with an adjuvanted, formalin-killed, whole-cell S. iniae bacterin. Juvenile hybrid striped bass (HSB; Morone chrysops × M. saxatilis) were vaccinated through intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection or bath immersion and held for 800 degree-days prior to challenge with a lethal dose of the virulent wild-type (WT) S. iniae parent strain. The ΔcpsD, Δ pgmA, and bacterin vaccines provided the highest level of vaccination ...

*  British Library EThOS: Characterisation of the structural properties and features of M. tuberculosis complex proteins linked to...
The genome of Mycobacterium tuberculosis encodes for 11 pairs of Esx family proteins such as EsxA/EsxB and EsxO/EsxP that are located in pairs within the genome. Despite the clear importance of the Esx family proteins in mycobacterial virulence and pathogenesis, the precise molecular functions and mechanisms of action for these proteins remain unknown. Initially expression vectors carrying EsxO and EsxP were constructed and used to express these proteins as inclusion products. The inclusion bodies of both proteins were successfully resolubilized and co-refolded. The final purification step by gel filtration chromatography shows that these proteins form a tight 1:1 heterodimeric complex. Analysis using circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy of the purified refolded complex showed that it contained a high helical content (53%). The complex showed a significant resistance to heat-induced denaturation with co-operative denaturation observed that indicates a stable folded structure. In addition, ...

*  By-catch in a recreational fishery: an unmonitored source of mortality. [PeerJ Preprints]
The purpose of this study was to infer the possible impact of unmonitored discard of by-catch on a recreational fishery. We recorded by-catch of fishes at a recreational fishery in Northeast Texas, statistically analyzed them, and then projected estimates of mortality if our observations represent a general pattern of behavior. Anglers discarded nine species of fishes during our study. The most frequently discarded fish were Gizzard Shad and Freshwater Drum. Four species of game fish were among the discarded species, but only Channel Catfish and Hybrid Striped Bass composed a large portion of the discarded fishes. Based on our observations, recreational fishing can produce a large amount of by-catch throughout the year and potentially pose an important unmonitored source of fish mortality.

ABSTRACT: Protozoa, a ubiquitous component of microbial biofilms, are able to rapidly colonise new substrata and reach high abundances, yet their potential to influence invertebrate settlement on these biofilms remains largely unknown. We conducted still-water, no-choice settlement assays to determine the individual effects of 4 different species of marine biofilm-dwelling ciliates on settlement of the polychaete worm Galeolaria caespitosa. The ciliates included vagile and planktonic species common to natural assemblages. Each ciliate species significantly inhibited the settlement of G. caespitosa, with the exception of Litonotus sp. The extent of inhibition differed significantly among ciliate species. Settlement was significantly reduced in the presence of Amphisiella sp. (37.5%), Euplotes minuta (43.7%) and Uronema marinum (39.6%) over 72 h compared to the control. Settlement rates in the presence of filtrate from ciliate cultures were at no point significantly different from a control, ...

*  The Top 10 Baby Safe Paint Products For Your Nursery - The Good Human
Here is your ultimate testimonial…. I was painting an old door in our home and had a yogurt container with the mixed blue paint on top of my 70 gallon fish aquarium. Well I am not sure how it happened, but the paint went into the tank (along with the brush). The aquarium turned a deep rich blue color, though I was extremely worried about the health of my fish. My wife thought that I should take them out, but from my experience with aquariums, they seem to clean themselves, so I left it. I was simply amazed! 24 hours after spilling the Milk Paint into my fish tank, the color was about gone and all the fish were healthy as ever. The blue eventually faded out completely and the fish flourished. Since then I have added about a dozen new fish to my tank. Not only am I more than happy with the results of the paint on the old door, but I am also amazed that the paint is so non-toxic that even a little neon tetra is unscathed after swimming in it. Thank you!" ~ Gregg, Vermont ...

I got Emily to watch the hamster in his ball whilst I cleaned the cage out, this involves getting rid of old sawdust, bedding etc and washing and drying the cage base and ramps and house, then adding new sawdusst, putting cage back together and adding new bedding and food. I always manage to get sawdust all over the floor, didn't do too bad today. After sending Emily off to school (it's walking day) I cleaned out the cat litter tray and gave him fresh cat litter. Next up fish tank, rinse the filter out and clean the air tube, simple enough except I drop the air tube in the bin where I had just put the dirty cat litter and sawdust and of course it dropped right to the bottom so I had to don latex gloves to get it out and give it an extra good clean, yuck. Then empty the bin to the outside bin.

Things have been difficult to talk about. Like talking underwater or trying to talk during sleep. These are the metaphors that come to me over and over again. My mind is underwater; it's in a fish tank, water artificially blue and antiseptic. All I want to say, over and over again is I'm sorry. The refrain I cling to when I'm afraid. I'm sorry for being afraid. At night, narcotic waves of salt washing over me, the bed is a giant cradle rock rock rocking on jagged swirls. On the mri, there was a wash of black, blooming out of the vertebrae, like ink releases from a squid. See there -- how your nerve disappears? I nodded, not knowing what I was looking at but feeling it light up neon red and electric. The best cure is distraction -- distractions of love, making ready, celebration. This is what makes the body numb. The combination of champagne and vicodin and I'm saying things like you could cut me and I wouldn't feel it or care. And then there was a needle the length of my forearm (from finger tip ...

*  Pathogen Genomics - Genome variation in Mycobacteria
In the hierarchy of microbial evolution, Mycobacteria represent a distinct group. The genus Mycobacterium contains more than 150 species and 11 sub-species, which are separated in three major groups, that is, M. tuberculosis complex (MTBC) which can cause tuberculosis in humans and animals, M. leprae, the causative agent of Hansen's disease or leprosy, and mycobacteria other than MTBC and M. leprae, collectively referred to as non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), also known as environmental mycobacteria, residing in soil and in water and can cause pulmonary disease resembling tuberculosis, lymphadenitis, skin disease, or disseminated disease. M. tuberculosis, the most prominent member of the MTBC, is an obligate human pathogen and the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), which remains one of the leading global public health problems. To decipher the biology and the evolution of present day mycobacterial species, we are building complete genetic maps of these species using comparative and ...

*  Clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of Mycobacterium haemophilum infections
Mycobacterium haemophilum is a slowly growing acid-fast bacillus (AFB) belonging to the group of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) frequently found in environmental habitats, which can colonize and occasionally infect humans and animals. Several findings suggest that water reservoirs are a likely source of M. haemophilum infections. M. haemophilum causes mainly ulcerating skin infections and arthritis in persons who are severely immunocompromised. Disseminated and pulmonary infections occasionally occur. The second at-risk group is otherwise healthy children, who typically develop cervical and perihilar lymphadenitis. A full diagnostic regimen for the optimal detection of M. haemophilum includes acid-fast staining, culturing at two temperatures with iron-supplemented media, and molecular detection. The most preferable molecular assay is a real-time PCR targeting an M. haemophilum-specific internal transcribed spacer (ITS), but another approach is the application of a generic PCR for a ...
