angiopoietin-like 4 - APOE3-Leiden.CETP mice - brown adipose tissue - circadian rhythm - diurnal rhythm - fatty acids - lipoprotein lipase - postprandial lipid response - triglycerides
Many favorable metabolic effects have been attributed to thermogenic activity of brown adipose tissue (BAT). Yet, time of day has rarely been considered in this field of research. Here, we show that a diurnal rhythm in BAT activity regulates plasma lipid metabolism. We observed a high-amplitude rhythm in fatty acid uptake by BAT that synchronized with the light/dark cycle. Highest uptake was found at the onset of the active period, which coincided with high lipoprotein lipase expression and low angiopoietin-like 4 expression by BAT. Diurnal rhythmicity in BAT activity determined the rate at which lipids were cleared from the circulation, thereby imposing the daily rhythm in plasma lipid concentrations. In mice as well as humans, postprandial lipid excursions were nearly absent at waking. We anticipate that diurnal BAT activity is an important factor to consider when studying the therapeutic potential of promoting BAT activity. van den Berg et al. show a strong circadian rhythm in fatty acid uptake by brown adipose tissue that peaks at wakening regardless of the light exposure period. Consequently, postprandial lipid handling by brown adipose tissue is highest at wakening, resulting in the lowest postprandial plasma lipid excursions.

pseudacrobeles steiner - thorne - redescription
Five species of the subfamily Acrolobinae, viz. Panagrolobus vanmegenae gen. n., sp. n., Teratolobus regulus Andrássy, 1968, T. obscurus sp. n., T. hamatus (Andrássy, 1986) comb. n. and T. similis sp. n., are described and illustrated from material collected in The Netherlands, Ukraine, Costa Rica, Mexico, Australia and South Africa. The new genus is characterised by a crown-shaped labial region with six well-developed, leaf-like lips having a biradial symmetry; lips separated by narrow and internally sclerotised U-shaped clefts; lateral lips half as wide as the subdorsal and subventral ones; a broad anisomorphic stoma; strongly sclerotised, hookshaped, cheilorhabdia; a strongly developed dorsal prostegorhabdion extending inside the stegostom cavity; a conoid tail with a rounded terminus bearing a dorsally curved, hook-like, mucro; and phasmids located at 70-90% of tail length. Teratolobus obscurus sp. n. is distinguished from the closely related T. regulus by the following characters: a smaller spermatheca (7.0-14.5 vs 26-61 ¿m); a shorter PUB (12-19 vs 18-42 ¿m); a shorter female tail (42-50 vs 55-72 ¿m); and differently shaped mucro on the tail terminus (harpoon-like vs hook-like). Teratolobus similis sp. n. is distinguished from the closely related T. baloghi (Andrássy, 1986) comb. n. by the following characters: a smaller body (350-420 vs 470-480 ¿m); a shorter PUB (9-12 vs 35-38 ¿m; 0.5-0.8 vs ca. 2 VBD long); shorter female tail (41-53 vs 62-65 ¿m; c¿ = 3.4-5.4 vs 6.5-7.0); and differently shaped mucro on the tail terminus (arrowhead-like vs finely forked). Based on current research, a revision is proposed of the taxonomy of the genus Teratolobus and the subfamily Acrolobinae. The following new combinations are proposed: Teratolobus baloghi; T. hamatus; and T. occultus (De Ley & Coomans, 1990) comb. n. Panagroteratus is proposed as a synonym of Teratolobus

Two species of the genus Deficephalobus, D. mirabilis sp. n. and D. desenderi, are described and illustrated on the basis of material collected in Costa Rica. The new species is characterised by 0.67-1.2 mm long body; bluntly rounded labial region; amphidial aperture one-third of labial region diam. wide; cheilostom barrel-shaped with sclerotised, bar-shaped, cheilorhabdia; gymnostom barrel-shaped with moderately sclerotised lining of gymnostom; stegostom funnel-shaped anteriorly, narrow tubular posteriorly and subdivided into four sets of rhabdia; basal bulb elongate ovoid with weakly developed valvular apparatus; excretory pore opening anterior to nerve ring; ovary tip almost reaching the level of rectum, large spermatheca, postvulval uterine sac shorter than vulval body diameter; female tail elongate conoid and straight, with filiform tail terminus; male tail short conoid with small, ragged, terminal mucro

free-living nematodes - araeolaimida
Two new species of Aphanonchus are described from Germany and Ivory Coast. Aphanonchus europaeus sp. n., from Germany, is best characterised by 1.1 - 1.4 mm long body, presence of 50-96 lateral epidermal glands; female without neck setae, with straight vagina without sclerotisations and three to nine prevulval alveoli; male with a pair of neck setae, 15 tubular and 20 alveolar supplements, one pair of precloacal and four pairs of caudal setae, 39 mum long spicules. Aphanonchus africanus sp. n., from Ivory Coast, is characterised by 1.0-1.3 mm long body, presence of 37 to 71 lateral epidermal glands; female with a pair of neck setae, straight to slightly sinuous vagina without sclerotisations, and without alveoli; male with a pair of neck setae, 12-18 tubular and 54-80 alveolar supplements, a pair of precloacal and four pairs of caudal setae, 35.5-43 mum long spicules. Morphological data, based on specimens of A. bayensis from Costa Rica, A. multipapillatus from Colombia and Suriname, A. obesus from Ivory Coast and the type locality in Vietnam, and type specimens of A. longiceras, are presented and supplement the descriptions of these four species. An emended diagnosis and a revised classification of Aphanonchus are proposed and a key to the species of the genus is provided.

In de verse vis keten van visser tot en met consument is behoefte aan inzicht in de kwaliteit en veiligheid van de visproducten. Dit inzicht kan worden verkregen door het uitwisselen van essentiële informatie tussen de betreffende schakels. De noodzaak voor deze informatie-vergaring en - uitwisseling wordt door de actoren in de keten onderschreven. Er zijn reeds initiatieven gestart en modellen ontwikkeld om deze wens gestalte te geven. Op Europees niveau is een tweetal Concerted Action projecten geïnitieerd genaamd Fish Quality Labelling and Monitoring (CA-FQLM) en TRACEFISH, waarbij diverse visonderzoeksinstituten en visketen actoren samenwerken over de invoering van traceerbare kwaliteitsindices van verse vis.Binnen deze inventarisatie ligt het accent op de vissoort schol (Pleuronectes platessa), één van de belangrijkste vissoorten voor de Nederlandse verse vis sector. De aldus vergaarde kennis en praktijkervaring kan ook gebruikt worden voor andere vissoorten.

Examination of paratypes of five species of Xiphinema from India described by Singh and Khan (1998) led to the following conclusions: X. larliani appears a valid species close to X. simillimum. The other four species are considered junior synonyms, X. digicaudatum of X. brasiliense; X. gracilicaudatum of X. radicicola; X. arunachalense of X. brevicollum [X. brevicolle]; X. pruni of X. basiri. Complementary morphological data, measurements and illustrations based on the paratypes are given for the five species.
