Improvement of Function in the Aging Rat Hippocampus by Administration of Alanine-Glutamine Dipeptide as a Precursor of the Antioxidant Glutathione

Physiological aging and aging due to oxidative stress decrease alanine-glutamine dipeptide concentrations in plasma and hippocampus. These conditions impact the decreased availability of glutamine in intracellular and glutathione levels in the hippocampus. Decrease in hippocampal glutathione level will be followed by decreased function of hippocampal neuron. One way to improve the function of the hippocampus […]

THE ASSESSMENT OF SENSITIVITY OF BIOTIC INDICES IN DETERMINING SYMPTOMS AND LEVELS OF DISTURBANCE USING MACROBENTHIC ASSEMBLAGE DATA

Marine macrobenthic dynamics have been intensively studied in response to environmental disturbances, and a large number of techniques, including a variety of indices, have been proposed and developed for assessment. Structural and functional variability have been summarized through both univariate and multimetric indices as integrative indicators in environmental monitoring programs. In general, multimetric indices are considered to be […]

RESPONSE OF TROPHIC GROUPS OF MACROBENTHIC FAUNA TO ENVIRONMENTAL DISTURBANCE CAUSED BY FISH FARMING

Sediment dynamics and the hydrodynamics of the environment cause the complexity and variability in animal-sediment relationship, both in spatial and temporal. This study is focused on the response of macrobenthic fauna to environmental disturbance caused by fish farming using their trophic structure. Their changes in trophic structure can be used as an indicator of disturbance. Eight control sites […]

Assessment of Water Quality Using Macrobenthos as Bioindicator and Its Application on Abundance-Biomass Comparison (ABC) Curves Suci Wulan Pawhestria, Jafron.W. Hidayatb, Sapto P. Putroc

Structure of macrobenthos community has been used to determine various environmental disturbances both in farmingn (Sapto, 2007; Gonzalez and Jerez, 2011; Yokoyama et al,  2007) and industrial activities (Wijayanti, 2007; Mooraki, 2009; Amin et al, 2012). Macrobenthos are organisms that live in the mud, sand, gravel, stone or organic waste either on the basis of the aquatic environment which […]

Response of Trophic Groups of Macrobenthos to Organically Enriched Sediments: A Comparative Study between Temperate and Tropical Regions

Macrobenthic assemblages dominated by all polychaetes, they are Capitellidae, Cirratullidae, Lumbrineridae, Nephtyidae, and Spionidae at Site I (temperate region), owing to their nrelatively tolerance to organic enrichment, both at the farm sites and at control sites. Surface deposit feeders (SDF) dominated in abundance at both control and fish farm sites at Site I, whilst subsurface deposit feeders (SSDF) […]

Assessment Level of Severity of Environmental Disturbance Caused by Aquaculture Activities Using Abundance-Biomass Curves of Macrobenthic Assemblages

Abundance-Biomass comparison (ABC) was applied to assess the level of environmental disturbancen by the changes in the pattern of abundance and biomass of macrobenthic assemblages taken from various types of sediments. In the most sedimentary habitats, polychaetes usually dominate the structure and considered the most tolerant to stress associated with organic loading and low oxygen […]
