Background The formation and functioning of muscles are fundamental aspects of animal biology, and the evolution of ‘muscle genes’ is central to our understanding of this tissue. Feeding-fasting-refeeding experiments have been widely used to assess muscle cellular and metabolic responses to nutrition. Though these studies have focused on vertebrate...

To date the study of ocean acidification on fish otolith formation has been mainly focused on larval and juvenile stages. In the present pilot study, wild-captured adult Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) were exposed to two different levels of pCO2, 422µatm (ambient, low pCO2) or 1091µatm (high pCO2), for a period of 30 weeks (from mid-October to early A...

The evolutionary transition from invertebrates to vertebrates involved extensive gene duplication, but understanding precisely how such duplications contributed to this transition requires more detailed knowledge of specific cases of genes and gene families. MyoD (Myogenic differentiation) has long been recognized as a master developmental control...
Article
The common octopus (Octopus vulgaris) is a species of great interest to the aquaculture industry. However, the high mortalities registered during different phases of the octopus lifecycle, the paralarvae stage, present a challenge for commercial aquaculture. Improvement of diet formulation is seen as one way to reduce mortality and improve growth....

The effects of ocean acidification on otolith crystallization and growth rates were investigated in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) larvae. Larvae were exposed to three different pH levels: pH8.2, pH7.7 and pH7.3 for a period of 18 days post-fertilization. For the first time, we demonstrate that pH has a significant impact on the carbonate polym...

div class="title">Airy Beams for Light-sheet Microscopy - Volume 21 Issue S3 - Jonathan Nylk, Zhengyi Yang, Miguel Preciado, Michael Mazilu, Tom Vettenburg, Clara Coll-Llado, David E. K. Ferrier, Tomas Cizmar, Frank. J. Gunn-Moore, Kishan Dholakia
Article
Full-text available
Light-sheet imaging is rapidly gaining importance for imaging intact biological specimens. Many of the latest innovations rely on the propagation-invariant Bessel or Airy beams to form an extended light sheet to provide high resolution across a large field of view. Shaping light to realize propagation-invariant beams often relies on complex program...
Article
Full-text available
Light-sheet microscopy facilitates rapid, high-contrast, volumetric imaging with minimal sample exposure. However, the rapid divergence of a traditional Gaussian light sheet restricts the field of view (FOV) that provides innate subcellular resolution. We show that the Airy beam innately yields high contrast and resolution up to a tenfold larger FO...
