Using zebrafish, we have recently identified that the alarm cue in fishes is unlikely to be a single molecule and that oligomers of the glycosaminoglycan – chondroitin are components of this mixture.We find that these oligomers are released from the skin upon injury and chondroitin from other natural sources can trigger an alarm behavior in zebrafish."Lucēre" has also produced other shining offspring in English.Among its descendants are "lucid" itself (which can mean "shining," "clear-headed," or "easily understood"), "lucent" (meaning "giving off light" or "easily seen through"), and "translucent" (meaning "partly transparent" or "clear enough for light to pass through").Any opinions in the examples do not represent the opinion of the Cambridge Dictionary editors or of Cambridge University Press or its licensors.

One of the first reports of such a phenomenon was by Karl von Frisch in 1938, who made these observations in freshwater fishes.

In the search for novel platinum-based anticancer therapeutic agents, we have recently established a structural motif of (O, S) bidentate ligands bound to a Pt(II) metal center which is effective against various cancer cell lines.
