Tenacibaculosis infection in marine fish caused by Tenacibaculum maritimum: a review.
TLDR
Current knowledge on this bacterial pathogen is reviewed, focusing on important aspects such as the phenotypic, serologic and genetic characterization of the bacterium, its geographical distribution and the host species affected.
Pathogenic activities of live cells and extracellular products of the fish pathogen Pasteurella piscicida.
TLDR
The pathobiological activities in vivo and in vitro of live cells and extracellular products (ECP) of eleven Pasteurella piscicida strains of different origin were examined and are important for the selection of strains in the development of effective polyvalent pasteurellosis vaccines containing both whole cells and ECP.
Response of Pasteurella piscicida and Flexibacter maritimus to skin mucus of marine fish
TLDR
It appears that whereas a possible portal of entry for E maritlmus Into the fish body is the skin, in P piscicida another pathway must be involved.
Phenotypic, antigenic, and molecular characterization of Pasteurella piscicida strains isolated from fish
TLDR
The taxonomic analysis revealed that, regardless of the geographic origin and source of isolation, all the strains exhibited the same biochemical and physiological characteristics, and a correlation between plasmid carriage and resistance to a specific antimicrobial agent cannot be established.
Iron uptake by Pasteurella piscicida and its role in pathogenicity for fish
TLDR
All the P. piscicida isolates utilized hemin and hemoglobin as an iron source, since the virulence of the strains increased when the fish were preinoculated with these compounds, and preliminary chromatographic analysis suggest that this siderophore may be chemically related to multocidin.
Influence of the capsular layer on the virulence of Pasteurella piscicida for fish.
TLDR
The results indicate that the presence of capsule can play an important role in the pathogenesis of P. piscicida and this microorganism has a low hydrophobic nature.
Molecular Fingerprinting of Fish-Pathogenic Lactococcus garvieae Strains by Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Analysis
TLDR
Evaluating the genetic diversity in Lactococcus garvieae with random amplified polymorphic DNA technique indicates that RAPD profiling constitutes a useful tool for epidemiological studies of this fish pathogen.
Acylhomoserine lactone production and degradation by the fish pathogen Tenacibaculum maritimum, a member of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides (CFB) group.
TLDR
This discovery extends the paradigm of AHL-mediated QS signalling beyond the Proteobacteria and reinforces its ecological significance in T. maritimum.
