Effect of a nucleotide-enriched diet on the immune system, plasma cortisol levels and resistance to infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) in juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
The influence of a nucleotide-enriched diet on the immune system, plasma cortisol levels and resistance to infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) was evaluated in infected juvenile rainbow trout.Expand
Fish Cytokines and Immune Response
The immune system can be defined as a complex system that protects the organism against organisms or substances that might cause infection or disease. One of the most fascinating characteristics ofExpand
Bioinformatic Analysis of the Genome of Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus Associated with Outbreaks with High Mortality in Chile
ABSTRACT The infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV), an orthomyxovirus, is the major cause of outbreaks of high mortality rates in salmon in Chile. It has been proposed that the virulence of ISAVExpand
Infectious salmon anemia virus--genetics and pathogenesis.
The infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) is the causative agent of the ISA syndrome that affects mainly Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and has caused high mortality epidemics in Norway, Scotland,Expand
Inhibitory Effect of a Nucleotide Analog on Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus Infection
ABSTRACT The infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV), which belongs to the Orthomyxoviridae family, has been responsible for major losses in the salmon industry, with mortalities close to 100% in areasExpand
Characterization of rotavirus guanylyltransferase activity associated with polypeptide VP3.
Rotaviruses transcribe mRNA containing a 7mGpppGmp cap at the 5' end in vitro. Guanylyltransferase activity associated with the viral particle was detected by SDS-PAGE due to the formation of aExpand
Differential immune gene expression profiles in susceptible and resistant full-sibling families of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) challenged with infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV).
This study aims to identify at the expression level the immune-related genes associated with IPN-susceptible and resistant phenotypes in Atlantic salmon full-sibling families. We have analyzed thirtyExpand
Photoaffinity labeling of rotavirus VP1 with 8-azido-ATP: identification of the viral RNA polymerase.
Rotavirus single-shelled particles have several enzymatic activities that are involved with the synthesis of capped mRNAs both in vivo and in vitro. Because single-shelled particles must beExpand
Role of the inner protein capsid on in vitro human rotavirus transcription.
The inner protein shell of human rotavirus consists of a single polypeptide called VP6 which was removed from the single-shelled virus by treatment with CaCl2, leaving the viral core. The core thusExpand
IPNV modulation of pro and anti-inflammatory cytokine expression in Atlantic salmon might help the establishment of infection and persistence.
IPNV is the agent of a well-characterized acute disease that produces a systemic infection and high mortality in farmed fish species and persistent infection in surviving fish after outbreaks.Expand
