Pathogenesis of Acute Viral Disease Induced in Fish by Carp Interstitial Nephritis and Gill Necrosis Virus
The virus causing the disease from sick fish, propagated it in koi fin cell culture, and shown that virus from a single clone causes lethal disease in carp and koi upon infection are called carp interstitial nephritis and gill necrosis virus.
Molecular Identification and Functional Characterization of the Kisspeptin/Kisspeptin Receptor System in Lower Vertebrates1
The results indicate that the Kiss1/Kiss1r system may participate in puberty initiation in fish as well, like human KISS1R, which transduces its activity via the PKC pathway, whereas Kiss1rb does so via both PKC and PKA pathways.

Results suggest that the NKB/NKBR system may participate in neuroendocrine control of fish reproduction and be conserved among the fish species when tested in silico.
Differential and gonad stage-dependent roles of kisspeptin1 and kisspeptin2 in reproduction in the modern teleosts, morone species.
The first report in fish to demonstrate the alternating actions and the importance of both neuropeptides for reproduction and the organization of the kisspeptin system suggests a transitional evolutionary state between early to late evolving vertebrates.

The objective of the present study was to express glycosylated, properly folded, and biologically active tilapia FSH (tFSH) using the Pichia pastoris expression system to develop a specific ELISA and to enable the study of FSH response to GnRH.
