- ... Bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) are vectors that are capable of carrying gene fragments of up to 300kb in size, and in theory, harbor cis-regulatory elements that are necessary for the expression of specific genes. Therefore, BACs can effectively alleviate or even eliminate the position effect induced by gene-integration, rendering these as ideal expression vectors of exogenous genes. Howe ...

- ... Marine fishes are generally unable to produce sufficient quantities of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6n-3) for their normal growth and survival, as the key fatty acid-metabolizing enzymes in the EPA and DHA biosynthetic pathway are limited. It is therefore necessary to supplement cultured marine fish species diets with fish oils in order to supply EPA and D ...
