Since summer 2008, high mortality rates of young Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas have been recorded in association with the detection of the Ostreid Herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1). A new variant called μVar has been recently described, characterized mainly by 12 consecutive deletions followed by one deletion of an adenine in the C region. The purpose of this(More)
The genetic polymorphism of the Ostreid Herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) has generally been investigated in three areas: ORFs 4/5, ORFs 42/43, and ORFs 35 to 38. The present study, however, focuses on 40 ORFs, representing 30% of the OsHV-1 genome, encoding four categories of putative proteins: 4 ORFs encoding putative inhibitor of apoptosis proteins; 17 ORFs(More)
The real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is considered to be a suitable tool for nucleic acid quantitation because it is accurate, rapid and reliable. The reference protocol for quantitation of ostreid herpesvirus 1 in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas is based on a Sybr(®) Green real-time PCR developed by the IFREMER laboratory. The Frank Duncombe(More)
Toxoplasma gondii, Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia intestinalis are emerging pathogen parasites in the food domain. However, without standardized methods for their detection in food matrices, parasitic foodborne outbreaks remain neglected. In this study, a new immunomagnetic separation assay (IMS Toxo) targeting the oocyst's wall of T. gondii was developed(More)
The ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) and variants were implicated in mass mortality affecting the young Pacific cupped oysters, Crassostrea gigas, in European countries and those around the world. From 2008 onwards, oyster mortality had greatly increased on the French coast and was associated with the detection of a new OsHV-1 variant, entitled OsHV-1 μVar.(More)
