Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 infection disrupts the skin barrier of common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.).
Cyprinid herpesvirus-3 (CyHV-3) is recognised as a pathogen which causes mass mortality in populations of carp, Cyprinus carpio. One of the characteristic symptoms of the disease associated withExpand

Immune response in the tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus on exposure to tannery effluent.
The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of chronic exposure to sublethal concentrations of tannery effluent (TE) on the specific immune response and nonspecific immunity in tilapia,Expand

Parasites of the flounder Platichthys flesus (L.) from the German Bight, North Sea, and their potential use in ecosystem monitoring
As part of integrated biological-effect monitoring, the parasite fauna of the flounder Platichthys flesus (L.) was investigated at five locations in the German Bight, with a view to using parasiteExpand

Pheno- and genotypic analysis of antimicrobial resistance properties of Yersinia ruckeri from fish.
Enteric red-mouth disease, caused by Yersinia ruckeri, is an important disease in rainbow trout aquaculture. Antimicrobial agents are frequently used in aquaculture, thereby causing a selectiveExpand

Changes of intestinal mucus glycoproteins after peroral application of Aeromonas hydrophila to common carp (Cyprinus carpio)
Abstract Mucus forms a biofilm that protects the underlying epithelium. Interactions between this mucus layer and bacteria are important in most infectious diseases. Aeromonas hydrophila , aExpand

Intestinal barrier of carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) during a cyprinid herpesvirus 3-infection: molecular identification and regulation of the mRNA expression of claudin encoding genes.
As a major part of tight junctions in the intestinal epithelium of vertebrates, claudin proteins are crucial to develop a selective permeable function and to maintain integrity of the barrier. TheExpand

Molecular cloning and expression of two b-defensin and two mucin genes in common carp ( Cyprinus carpio L . ) and their up-regulation after b-glucan feeding
In this study, we described the partial structure, mRNA tissue distribution and regulation of two carp mucin and two b-defensin genes. This is the first description of these genes in fish. The genesExpand

Changes in skin mucus of common carp, Cyprinus carpio L., after exposure to water with a high bacterial load.
Water in aquaculture systems may contain a high load of microorganisms. Reduction in overall bacterial tank water load improves fish health and growth parameters. In this study, the effect of anExpand

Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) from fish epidermis: perspectives for investigative dermatology.
Mammalian and fish skin share protective activities against environments that are rich in infectious agents. Fish epidermis is endowed with an extrinsic barrier consisting of a mucus layer andExpand
