Microsporidia: diverse, dynamic, and emergent pathogens in aquatic systems.
Isolation of a cyprinid herpesvirus 2 from goldfish, Carassius auratus (L.), in the UK.
Haematopoietic necrosis virus was isolated during disease outbreaks in goldfish, Carassius auratus, at an ornamental fish retail site in southern England in 2004 and revealed typical herpesvirus-like particles measuring 100 nm in diameter.
Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei sp. nov. (Microsporida: Enterocytozoonidae), a parasite of the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon (Decapoda: Penaeidae): Fine structure and phylogenetic relationships.
Emergence of cold water strawberry disease of rainbow trout Oncorynchus mykiss in England and Wales: outbreak investigations and transmission studies.
Fish from both outbreak investigations and the infection trial were examined for the presence of viruses, oomycetes, parasites and bacteria using a combination of techniques and methodologies, with no potentially causative infectious agent consistently identified.
De novo assembly of the Carcinus maenas transcriptome and characterization of innate immune system pathways
An assembled transcriptome for C. maenas has revealed the presence of a series of known targets and functional pathways that form part of their innate immune system and illustrate tissue specific differences in their expression patterns.
Hepatospora eriocheir (Wang and Chen, 2007) gen. et comb. nov. infecting invasive Chinese mitten crabs (Eriocheir sinensis) in Europe.
Infection by a Hematodinium-like parasitic dinoflagellate causes Pink Crab Disease (PCD) in the edible crab Cancer pagurus.
Mikrocytids Are a Broadly Distributed and Divergent Radiation of Parasites in Aquatic Invertebrates
Phylogenetic and morphological characterisation of the green algae infesting blue mussel Mytilus edulis in the North and South Atlantic oceans.
Results suggest a misidentification or outgrowth of the original CCAP strain 216/18 by a different 'Nannochloris-like' trebouxiophycean organism, which could represent the true C. parasitica responsible for the green pustules in blue mussels.
Molecular Mechanisms of White Spot Syndrome Virus Infection and Perspectives on Treatments
Current knowledge of how WSSV infects and replicates in its host, and critique strategies for WSD treatment are assessed.
