Evaluation of potential reference genes in real-time RT-PCR studies of Atlantic salmon
BackgroundSalmonid fishes are among the most widely studied model fish species but reports on systematic evaluation of reference genes in qRT-PCR studies is lacking.ResultsThe stability of sixExpand

The Putative Polymerase Sequence of Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus Suggests a New Genus within theOrthomyxoviridae
ABSTRACT The infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) is an orthomyxovirus-like virus infecting teleosts. The disease caused by this virus has had major economic consequences for the Atlantic salmonExpand

Allergy to fish parvalbumins: studies on the cross-reactivity of allergens from 9 commonly consumed fish.
BACKGROUND Fish-hypersensitive patients can probably tolerate some fish species while being allergic to others. OBJECTIVE To determine the allergenic cross-reactivity between 9 commonly edibleExpand

Salmonid T cells assemble in the thymus, spleen and in novel interbranchial lymphoid tissue
In modern bony fishes, or teleost fish, the general lack of leucocyte markers has greatly hampered investigations of the anatomy of the immune system and its reactions involved in inflammatoryExpand

Gene expression analyses of immune responses in Atlantic salmon during early stages of infection by salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) revealed bi-phasic responses coinciding with the
BackgroundThe salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis Krøyer), an ectoparasitic copepod with a complex life cycle causes significant losses in salmon aquaculture. Pesticide treatments against theExpand

Identification and characterization of a novel intraepithelial lymphoid tissue in the gills of Atlantic salmon
In addition to being the respiratory organ in fish, the gills form a barrier against the external milieu. Innate and adaptive immune system components have been detected in the gills, but lymphoidExpand

Characterisation of salmon and trout CD8alpha and CD8beta.
The genes and corresponding cDNAs of both alpha and beta chains of the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) CD8 molecule have been sequenced and characterized. In addition, the cDNAs for alpha and betaExpand

Molecular Phylogeny of Microsporidians with Particular Reference to Species that Infect the Muscles of Fish
Ribosomal DNA from eight species of microsporidians infecting fish have been sequenced. Seven of these species infect the skeletal muscle of fish (Pleistophora spp.) and one species infects migratoryExpand

Analysis of two IgM isotypes in Atlantic salmon and brown trout.
Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) possesses two distinct subpopulations of polymeric IgM which are separable by anion exchange chromatography. Consistent with this finding there are two isotypic IgMExpand
