Molecular cloning, genomic organization and recombinant expression of a crustin-like antimicrobial peptide from black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon.
TLDR
A novel crustin-like antimicrobial peptide (Crus-likePm) was identified from haemocytes of Penaeus monodon and showed strong antimicrobial activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including V. harveyi, a major pathogenic bacteria in shrimp aquaculture.
Deep Sequencing of ESTs from Nacreous and Prismatic Layer Producing Tissues and a Screen for Novel Shell Formation-Related Genes in the Pearl Oyster
TLDR
This is the first report of deep sequencing of ESTs in the shell-forming tissues of P. fucata and the data provide a powerful tool for a comprehensive understanding of the molecular mechanisms of molluscan biomineralization.
Difference in Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus gene expression profile following hirame rhabdovirus (HIRRV) G and N protein DNA vaccination.
TLDR
Results suggest that in order to be effective and confer protection, vaccines against HIRRV and probably fish rhabdoviruses may need to stimulate the type I IFN system.
Ligand-dependent transcriptional activities of four torafugu pufferfish Takifugu rubripes peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors.
TLDR
Results suggest that the activities of torafugu PPARbeta and gamma require undefined ligands, and the molecular mechanisms involved in their activation are different from those of other vertebrates.
Increased bacterial load in shrimp hemolymph in the absence of prophenoloxidase
TLDR
It is shown that knocking down the activity of the inactive precursor of PO [prophenoloxidase (proPO)] by RNA interference resulted in a significant increase in the bacterial load of kuruma shrimp, Marsupenaeus’japonicus, even in the absence of a bacterial or viral challenge.
Molecular cloning and antiviral activity of IFN-β promoter stimulator-1 (IPS-1) gene in Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus.
TLDR
Japanese flounder IPS-1 cells were protected against hirame rhabdovirus and VHSV infection as manifested by the delayed appearance of cytopathic effect (CPE) and decreased viral titers.
Draft Genome Sequences of Six Strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus Isolated from Early Mortality Syndrome/Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease Shrimp in Thailand
TLDR
A unique sequence encoding a type IV pilus/type IV secretion system was found in 3 AHPND strains and all of them lacked the pathogenicity island relevant to human infection.
Enhanced survival of shrimp, Penaeus (Marsupenaeus) japonicus from white spot syndrome disease after oral administration of recombinant VP28 expressed in Brevibacillus brevis.
TLDR
Results show that recombinant VP28 expressed in a Gram-positive bacterium is a potential oral vaccine against WSSV.
Draft Genome Sequence of Non-Vibrio parahaemolyticus Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease Strain KC13.17.5, Isolated from Diseased Shrimp in Vietnam
TLDR
A strain of Vibrio causing acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease in shrimp in northern Vietnam was isolated, and the genomic sequence indicated that it belonged to VIBrio harveyi.
Molecular cloning and characterization of Toll-like receptor 9 in Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus.
TLDR
The mRNA copy numbers of Japanese flounder TLR9 and its adapter protein, the myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MYD88) were increased in some organs including blood, gill, kidney and spleen after Edwardsiella tarda challenge.
