Evaluation the effect of dietary vitamin E, sesamin and thymoquinone bioactive compounds on immunological response, intestinal traits and MUC-2 gene expression in broiler Japanese quails ( < em > Coturnix japonica < /em > )
Anim Biotechnol. 2023 Sep 20:1-11. doi: 10.1080/10495398.2023.2259437. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe current study was performed to determine the effect of dietary vitamin E, sesamin and thymoquinone bioactive lignans derived from sesame and black seed on immunological response, intestinal traits and Mucin2 gene expression in broiler quails. Three hundred and fifty (one days-old) quails were allotted to seven dietary treatments with five replicates as an experimental randomized design study. Treatments were basal diet as a control, control +100 and +200 mg of vitamin E, sesamin and thymoquinone per each kg of diet resp...

< em > Hannaella oleicumulans < /em > sp. nov. and < em > Hannaella higashiohmiensis < /em > sp. nov., two novel oleaginous basidiomycetous yeast species
Int J Syst Evol Microbiol. 2023 Sep;73(9). doi: 10.1099/ijsem.0.006027.ABSTRACTThree strains of novel oleaginous yeast species were isolated from soil samples collected in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and the D1/D2 region of the large subunit (LSU) of the rRNA genes indicated that these novel yeast species are members of the genus Hannaella. The results of molecular phylogenetic analysis indicated that strains 38-3 and 8s1 were closely related to Hannaella oryzae. They differed by 10 nucleotide substitutions and one gap (1.77 %) in the D1/D2 region of the LSU of the...

Effects of wearing an opaque or transparent face mask on the perception of facial expressions: A comparative study between Japanese school-aged children and adults
This study aimed to determine the negative influence of mask-wearing on reading emotions of adult faces by Japanese school-aged children, compared to Japanese adults. We also examined whether this negative influence could be alleviated by using a transparent face mask instead of an opaque one (surgical mask). The performance on reading emotions was measured using emotion categorization and emotion intensity rating tasks for adult faces. As per the findings, the accuracy of emotion recognition in children was impaired for various facial expressions (disgust, fear, happy, neutral, sad, and surprise faces), except for angry f...

Impact of Electrocardiographic Parameters on Sudden Death in Patients Receiving Maintenance Hemodialysis: Ten-Year Outcomes of the Q-Cohort Study
CONCLUSIONS: Higher heart rate, QT prolongation, and left ventricular hypertrophy on ECG have been determined to be associated with an increased risk of sudden death. Therefore, regular ECG recording could enable medical practitioners to identify hemodialysis patients who require intervention to prevent lethal arrhythmia.PMID:37730375 | DOI:10.5551/jat.64255 (Source: Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis)
