paracasei NFRI 7415 was grown to the stationary phase at 37[degrees]C for 20 h in MRS agar medium (Difco Laboratories, Detroit, MI).
paracasei NFRI 7415 ([10.sup.7] CFU/g) and alcohol diet bended at a ratio of 1: 4 (LD) group (n = 8).
paracasei NFRI 7415 is beneficial for improving liver damage due to chronic alcohol intake .
paracasei NFRI 7415 reduced the plasma T-cho and hepatic T-cho concentration in rats fed an ethanol-containing diet .
paracasei NFRI 7415 has the capacity to lower fecal T-cho excretion, and it effectively reduced plasma T-cho concentration .
paracasei NFRI 7415 inhibits mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis by alcohol intake with stress.
They were transported to the NFRI in September 2007 and reared for 2 wk.
The average size of the juveniles at the start of the experiment was approximately 8.1 mm SH, and was too large for rearing under the still water conditions; therefore, this experiment was conducted in flowing water in tanks at the NFRI. This rearing method prevented use of Ge[O.sub.2] solution to reduce diatom densities on ACA.
The juveniles used in experiment 3 were from the same batch as those used in experiment 2, which continued to be reared on diatom plates and supplied with the brown alga Undaria pinnatifida at the NFRI until June 2008.
The early juveniles were reared in FSW or Ge[O.sub.2] solution on plastic plates covered with diatoms, which were used for rearing individuals at the NFRI. FSW or Ge[O.sub.2] solution in the plastic pots was changed every day, and the plastic plate was replaced every 5 days.
On the last day of the conference six high school students were selected from NFRI
's Fusion School Intensive Program for a three day field trip to Japan.
