Regeneration of germlings and seedlings development from cauline leaves of Sargassum thunbergii

  A method of producing artificial Sargassum thunbergii seedlings is urgently desired to meet the increasing demand of raw materials used for aquaculture and for the sake of environmental protection. This is the first report of attempt to study the vegetative propagation of this species using cauline leaves under laboratory conditions. On average, 45.75% of the excised leaves survived and one leaf could...

Genistein, the phytoestrogen induces heart-and-soul (has) phenotypes in zebrafish embryo

Zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos treated with a small plant molecule, genistein generated a mimic of zebrafish VEGF-A loss of function model. These embryos develop with an enlarged pericardium and major blood vessel deficiencies and their morphological assessment after 48 h post fertilization indicates a nearly complete absence of both axial and intersegmental vasculature with no or reduced numbers of circulating red...
