Variation in Vibrio parahaemolyticus isolates from a single Thai shrimp farm experiencing an outbreak of acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND)
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of bacteria isolated from the hepatopancreas (HP) of shrimp collected from an early mortality outbreak farm in Thailand revealed the possibility of diversity in isolates of V. parahaemolyticus that may cause early mortality in shrimp cultivation ponds. Expand
Review of current disease threats for cultivated penaeid shrimp in Asia
TLDR
This review summarizes recent information about new and newly emerging diseases of cultured shrimp in Asia and discusses the biosecurity lapses that led to the current shrimp production crisis. Expand
The microsporidian Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei is not the cause of white feces syndrome in whiteleg shrimp Penaeus (Litopenaeus) vannamei
TLDR
The microsporidian newly found in P. vannamei is conspecific with previously described E. hepatopenaei and it is not causally associated with WFS, but the PCR and in situ hybridization methods developed herein should be used to identify the natural reservoir species so they can be eliminated from the shrimp rearing system. Expand
Comparison of PCR testing methods for white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infections in penaeid shrimp
TLDR
The results confirmed the validity of PCR-based methods in Thailand for detection of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infection in penaeid shrimp post larvae (PL) before they are stocked in rearing ponds. Expand
Double-dose β-glucan treatment in WSSV-challenged shrimp reduces viral replication but causes mortality possibly due to excessive ROS production.
TLDR
It is found from measured phenoloxidase acitivity (PO) and H2O2 production that the higher mortality may have resulted from a combination of WSSV infection plus over-production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) stimulated by two doses of β-glucan. Expand
Loop‐mediated isothermal amplification combined with colorimetric nanogold for detection of the microsporidian Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei in penaeid shrimp
TLDR
An objective was to establish a loop‐mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay combined with colorimetric nanogold (AuNP) for rapid, sensitive and inexpensive detection of this parasite. Expand
Yellow head virus (YHV) transmission risk from commodity shrimp is reduced to negligible levels by normal processing
TLDR
Results showed that grossly normal whole shrimp processed by chilling and freezing would present negligible YHV disease transmission risks, even if they were 1-step RT-PCR positive for YHHV. Expand
Yeast Surface Display of Two Proteins Previously Shown to Be Protective Against White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) in Shrimp
TLDR
The genetically engineered P. pastoris can display biologically active mPmRab7 and pVP28 and is now ready for evaluation of efficacy in protecting shrimp against WSSV by oral administration. Expand
Distinctive histopathology of Spiroplasma eriocheiris infection in the giant river prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii
TLDR
Recognition of the distinctive histological lesions in interstitial spaces of the hepatopancreatic tissue of M. rosenbergii infected with S. eriocheiris by histological analysis can be used as a strong presumptive indication of infection by this rapidly-spreading, emerging pathogen. Expand
