Aeromonas hydrophila is known to be causative agent of an infection named as Bacterial haemorrhagic septicaemia or red pest in freshwater fish. The aim of this study was to develop and validate the glycoprotein-based fish vaccine against Aeromonas hydrophila. For this aim, after identification and characterization of A. hydrophila isolates from fish farms,(More)
The aim of the study was the phenotypic and molecular characterization of Yersinia (Y) ruckeri strains, the causative agent of Enteric Redmouth Disease (ERM), by antibiotyping, random amplified polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction (RAPD-PCR) and sodium dodecylsulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) patterns of whole cell proteins.

Aeromonas spp. are oxidase positive, gram-negative, facultative anaerobic bacilli that are widely distributed in aquatic environments. A.hydrophila, A.sobria and A.bestiarum may cause severe infections in both human and cold-blooded animals. Environmental persistance of quinolones that are widely used in both human and veterinary medicine plays an important(More)
AIM Over the last decade, Citrobacter species have been responsible for infections in fish and many species and also new Citrobacter species have been identified. In this study, molecular identifications and the phenotypic and genotypic antimicrobial-resistance characteristics of atypical and typical Citrobacter species were determined. MATERIALS AND(More)
In this study, molecular characterization of antimicrobial resistance of 116 Yersinia ruckeri strains isolated from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) with enteric redmouth disease (ERM) in commercial fish farms in the Northern and Eastern regions of Turkey was performed. The putative Y. ruckeri strains isolated were confirmed by PCR assays specific to the(More)
