Codons for Leucine possessed the highest percentage value of 15.39% and 16.01%, which may be related to the function of chondriosome of encoding many transmembrane proteins (Gillespie et al., 2006), while those for Cysteine were the least represented with a percentage value of 0.82% and 0.81%, as observed in other Coilia fishes (Supplementary Fig.
OTUs were processed by removing chloroplast sequences, chondriosome sequences, and unclassified sequences.
However, the myocardial ultrastructure of diabetic and/or SOD2+/- hearts were well-protected and improved by APS treatment, which was characterized by integrated mitochondria, regular sarcomeres, intact endoplasmic reticulum, and undisrupted chondriosome. Moreover, APS-treated diabetic and/or SOD2 + /- myocardium exhibited parallel arrangements and practically normal shapes of mitochondria with integrated mitochondrial membrane and cristae, and less abundance of peroxisomes (Figure 1).
