Zanclea–coral association: new records from Maldives

To date, few hydroids have been observed to be associated with anthozoans, and only three Pacific Zanclea species are known to live in symbiosis with scleractinian corals, namely Zanclea gilii, Z. margaritae, and Z. sango (Boero et al. 2000; Pantos and Bythell 2010; Hirose and Hirose 2011). Here, we report the first evidence of this kind of association in the Indian Ocean. During...

Acropora muricata mortality associated with extensive growth of Caulerpa racemosa in Magoodhoo Island, Republic of Maldives

Caulerpa racemosa, a common and opportunistic species widely distributed in tropical and warm-temperate regions, is known to form monospecific stands outside its native range (Verlaque et al. 2003). In October 2011, we observed an alteration in benthic community due to a widespread overgrowth of C. racemosa around the inhabited island of Magoodhoo (3°04′N; 72°57′E, Republic of...

Improved Neuropsychological and Neurological Functioning Across Three Antiretroviral Regimens in Diverse Resource-Limited Settings: AIDS Clinical Trials Group Study A5199, the International Neurological Study

Background. AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) A5199 compared the neurological and neuropsychological (NP) effects of 3 antiretroviral regimens in participants infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in resource-limited settings. Methods. Participants from Brazil, India, Malawi, Peru, South Africa, Thailand, and Zimbabwe were randomized to 3 antiretroviral...

Induction of PEPCK gene expression in insulinopenia in rat small intestine.

PEPCK is a key enzyme of gluconeogenesis in liver and kidney. Recently, we have shown that small intestine also contributes to the endogenous glucose production in insulinopenia in rats and that glutamine is the main precursor of glucose synthesized in this tissue. The expression of the PEPCK gene in rat and human small intestine and the effect of streptozotocin-induced diabetes...
