The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) serum lectin (SSL) is a C-type lectin that binds to bacteria including salmon pathogens. SSL has been shown to be oligomeric in salmon serum and it displays a stoichiometric band-laddering pattern when analyzed by SDS-PAGE under non-reducing conditions. In this study, a model was generated for SSL isoform 2 in silico in(More)
BACKGROUND An Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) C-type lectin (SSL) binds to mannose and related sugars as well as to the surface of Aeromonas salmonicida. To characterize this lectin as a pathogen recognition receptor in salmon, aspects of its interaction with molecules and with intact pathogens were investigated. METHODS SSL was isolated using(More)
Errors during the pre-mRNA splicing of metazoan genes can degrade the transmission of genetic information, and have been associated with a variety of human diseases. In order to characterize the mutagenic and pathogenic potential of mis-splicing, we have surveyed and quantified the aberrant splice variants in the human hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl(More)
The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) serum lectin (SSL) is a soluble C-type lectin that binds bacteria, including salmon pathogens. This lectin is a cysteine-rich oligomeric protein. Consequently, a Drosophila melanogaster expression system was evaluated for use in expressing SSL. A cDNA encoding SSL was cloned into a vector designed to express it as a fusion(More)
