Article
Full-text available
A reduction in daily caloric or nutrient intake has been observed to promote health benefits in mammals and other vertebrates. Feed Restriction (FR), whereby the overall food intake of the organism is reduced, has been explored as a method to improve metabolic and immune health, as well as to optimize productivity in farming. However, less is known...

Asian seabass (or commonly known as barramundi), Lates calcarifer, is a bony euryhaline teleost from the Family Latidae, inhabiting nearshore, estuarine, and marine connected freshwaters throughout the tropical Indo-West Pacific region. The species is catadromous, whereby adults spawn in salinities between 28 and 34 ppt at the mouth of estuaries, w...

The Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) is a bony fish from the Latidae family, which is widely distributed in the tropical Indo-West Pacific region. The karyotype of the Asian seabass contains 24 pairs of A chromosomes and a variable number of AT- and GC-rich B chromosomes (Bchrs or Bs). Dot-like shaped and nucleolus-associated AT-rich Bs were microd...

The Asian seabass is an important marine food fish that has been cultured for several decades in Asia Pacific. However, the lack of a high quality reference genome has hampered efforts to improve its selective breeding. A 3D BAC pool set generated in this study was screened using 22 SSR markers located on linkage group 2 which contains a growth-rel...

Full-text available
Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) is a food fish of increasing aquaculture importance. In order to improve our understanding on the digestive system and feeding of this species, morphological and histological features of the gut were studied. Morphologically, the Asian seabass gut is defined by a short and muscular esophagus, well-developed stomach...

The gut histology of Asian seabass subjected to repeated salinity challenge was similar to those of controls.

The Asian seabass (or barramundi; Lates calcarifer) is a marine teleost and a popular food fish in Southeast Asia and Australia. To date, comprehensive genome and transcriptome sequence information has not been available for this species in public repositories. Here, we report a comprehensive de novo transcriptome assembly of the Asian seabass. The...

In vertebrates, establishment of left-right (LR) asymmetry is dependent on cilia-driven fluid flow within the LR organizer. Mutations in CCDC11 disrupt LR asymmetry in humans, but how the gene functions in LR patterning is presently unknown. We describe a patient with situs inversus totalis carrying homozygous loss-of-function mutations in CCDC11....

Conference Paper
Lates calcarifer (Asian seabass/barramundi) is a carnivorous, marine teleost belonging to the order Perciformes. It is an important fish species from an aquaculture perspective, its farming initiated in the 1970s in Thailand followed by a rapid spread to a large number of countries extending beyond its native range. The Asian seabass is euryhaline...
Conference Paper
Lates calcarifer (Asian seabass/barramundi) is an important food fish species belonging to the order Perciformes. The Asian seabass has a wide geographic distribution stretching from Northern Australia to at least the Western part of India. A comprehensive analysis of the identity of Asian seabass is, however, lacking. Therefore, in order to ascert...

The body of most fishes is fully covered by scales that typically form tight, partially overlapping rows. While some of the genes controlling the formation and growth of fish scales have been studied, very little is known about the genetic mechanisms regulating scale pattern formation. Although the existence of two genes with two pairs of alleles (...
Conference Paper
The Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) is an economically important food fish with a wide geographic distribution ranging from the Indo-West Pacific region to Northern Australia. It has an estimated genome size of ~700Mb and a poorly represented transcriptome in GenBank. The main aim of the project is to use next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms...

Stress associated proteins (SAPs), novel A20/AN1 zinc-finger domain-containing proteins, are fast emerging as potential candidates for biotechnological approaches in order to improve abiotic stress tolerance in plants - the ultimate aim of which is crop-yield protection. Until relatively recently, such proteins had only been identified in humans, w...

Our previous work with the zebrafish embryo had uncovered a master regulatory role for the winged-helix transcription factor FoxJ1 in motile ciliogenesis. In humans, dysfunction of motile cilia leads to Primary Ciliary Dyski-nesia (PCD). Mutations in only a few genes have thus far been associated with PCD. To identify new genes that are required fo...

It is generally believed that the last eukaryotic common ancestor (LECA) was a unicellular organism with motile cilia. In the vertebrates, the winged-helix transcription factor FoxJ1 functions as the master regulator of motile cilia biogenesis. Despite the antiquity of cilia, their highly conserved structure, and their mechanism of motility, the ev...
