We sequenced the genome of a motile O1b Yersinia ruckeri field isolate from Chile, which is causing enteric redmouth disease (ERM) in vaccinated Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). The draft genome has 3,775,486 bp, a G+C content of 47.1%, and is predicted to contain 3,406 coding sequences.
Outbreaks caused by Piscirickettsia salmonis are one of the major threats to the sustainability of the Chilean salmon industry. We report here the annotated draft genomes of two P. salmonis isolates recovered from different salmonid species. A comparative analysis showed that the number of virulence-associated secretion systems constitutes a main genomic(More)
ABSTRACT PLANEX is a system that solves the road network construction together with the location of harvesting machinery, skidders and towers, in planning the habilitation of up to a thousand hectares of terrain to harvest. The system is fed from digitalized information stored in geographic databases. This graphic tool automatically designs the road(More)
It has been proposed that GLUT1, a membrane protein that transports hexoses and the oxidized form of vitamin C, dehydroascorbic acid, is also a transporter of nicotinamide (Sofue, M., Yoshimura, Y., Nishida, M., and Kawada, J. (1992) Biochem. J. 288, 669-674). To ascertain this, we studied the transport of 2-deoxy-D-glucose, 3-O-methyl-D-glucose, and(More)
Tenacibaculum-like bacilli have recently been isolated from diseased sea-reared Atlantic salmon in outbreaks that took place in the XI region (Región de Aysén) of Chile. Molecular typing identified the bacterium as Tenacibaculum dicentrarchi. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the AY7486TD isolate recovered during those outbreaks.
Early reports accounted for two main genotypes of Piscirickettsia salmonis, a fish pathogen and causative agent of piscirickettsiosis, placing the single isolate EM-90 apart from the prototypic LF-89 and related isolates. In this study, we provide evidence that, contrary to what has been supposed, the EM-90-like isolates are highly prevalent and(More)
The amount of antibiotics needed to counteract frequent piscirickettsiosis outbreaks is a major concern for the Chilean salmon industry. Resistance to antibiotics may contribute to this issue. To understand the genetics underlying Piscirickettsia salmonis-resistant phenotypes, the genome of AY3800B, an oxytetracycline-resistant isolate bearing a multidrug(More)
