Moderately vigorous shoots of mature rabbiteye blueberry ‘Tifblue’ bushes were pruned in summer to clarify the effects on vegetative and reproductive traits. Treatments included un-pruned, 25% pruned (removing 25% of the shoot length), 50% pruned (removing 50% of the shoot length) and 75% pruned (removing 75% of the shoot length). Vegetative and flower bud number per shoot decreased with increasing pruning severity. Consequently, the number of laterals per shoot dropped. However, lateral length increased with increasing pruning severity. Shoots pruned at 75% produced a small number of laterals, but they were the most vigorous. Pruning severity induced the transition of vegetative buds to reproductive buds in areas lower than the cut position. The flower bud number per shoot decreased with increasing pruning severity. However, yield per shoot was not affected due to a compensatory increase in berry weight. Total soluble solids content and titratable acidity of the berry juice, as well as, the number of berries per flower bud were not affected. Hence, to reduce the unproductive parts of the plant, and to produce bigger berries, September removal of either 50% or 75% of the length of mature rabbiteye blueberry shoots under conditions similar to the Kanto region of Japan is recommended.

To select cultivars to produce doubled haploids (DHs) efficiently in an anther culture, a total of 28 apple cultivars (25 cultivars and 3 rootstock cultivars) were investigated to assess their callus formation rate, embryo formation rate, shoot formation rate from embryo and efficiency of shoot multiplication and acclimatization. The callus formation rates of ‘Red Astrachan’, ‘Kinsei’, ‘Tsugaru’, ‘Golden Delicious’ (‘GD’), ‘American Summer Pearmain’ (‘ASP’), ‘Gala’, ‘Rome Beauty’, and ‘Jonathan’ were high, but ‘JM2’ and ‘King of Tompkins’ formed no callus. Regarding the embryo formation rates, ‘ASP’, ‘Rome Beauty’, ‘M.9’, and ‘Starking Delicious’ (‘SD’) were high, but ‘GD’, ‘JM2’, ‘King of Tompkins’, ‘Ralls Janet’, and ‘Smith’s Cider’ formed no embryo. Regarding the shoot formation rate from embryos, ‘Senshu’, ‘Tsugaru’, and ‘Sansa’ showed high values, but ‘Fuji’, ‘Jonathan’, and ‘Wijcik’ did not form shoots at all. The rate of shoot formation from anthers showed a high–low order of ‘Senshu’, ‘SD’, ‘ASP’, and ‘Tsugaru’. Multiplication and acclimatization of the shoots were not easy. Many individuals died. Eventually, only ‘Senshu’ and ‘SD’ acclimatized. Therefore, cultivars that produced DHs efficiently were ‘Senshu’ and ‘SD’. The results indicated that all processes of “embryo formation”, “shoot induction”, and “shoot multiplication and acclimatization” are important for obtaining DHs in apple anther cultures.

A 6-year-old female Labrador retriever presented with a mass in the right mammary gland, and swollen right inguinal and axillary lymph nodes. Fine needle aspiration biopsy suggested a malignant lipid-producing tumor, such as liposarcoma. Histopathologically, the neoplasms were solid, lobulated nests of atypical epithelial cells with a large amount of extracellular deposits of amyloid in both mammary gland and lymph nodes. The proliferating cells contained large cytoplasmic vacuoles, positive for oil red-O. These cells were immunopositive for cytokeratin (AE1/AE3) and β-casein and negative for SMA. The amyloid deposits were immunopositive for β-casein. These findings suggested that the proliferating cells secreted β-casein forming amyloid deposits. This is the first report of mammary lipid-rich carcinoma with extensive amyloid deposition derived from β-casein.

A 6-year-old female Labrador retriever presented with a mass in the right mammary gland, and swollen right inguinal and axillar lymph nodes. Fine needle aspiration biopsy suggested a malignant lipid-producing tumor, such as liposarcoma.
