In 2009, a disease outbreak caused by Aeromonas hydrophila occurred in 48 catfish farms in West Alabama, causing an estimated loss of more than 3 million pounds of food size channel catfish. Virulence studies have revealed that the 2009 isolates of A. hydrophila are at least 200-fold more virulent than a 1998 Alabama isolate AL98-C1B. However, up to now, no(More)
Expression of the interleukin-2 receptor alpha chain (IL-2R alpha) by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from Holstein calves, both experimentally-infected with bovine herpesvirus-l (BHV-l) and controls, was measured by flow cytometry. Expression of IL-2R alpha was 35 percent and 23 percent higher in infected calves than controls, on days 2 and 3(More)
Holstein calves given three consecutive i.m. injections of dexamethasone (DEX) (0.04 mg kg-1) showed lymphopenia and neutrophilia with increased numbers of mature neutrophils on post-injection Days 1 and 2, but these values returned to normal levels by post-injection Day 3. Interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R) expression by peripheral blood mononuclear cells(More)
AIM To determine whether novobiocin resistance strategy could be used to attenuate a virulent Aeromonas hydrophila AH11P strain and to characterize the growth and pathogenic differences between the novobiocin-resistant strain and its virulent parent strain AH11P. METHODS AND RESULTS A novobiocin-resistant strain AH11NOVO was obtained from a virulent Aer.(More)
To understand the molecular mechanisms involved in response of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) to bacterial infection, suppression subtractive cDNA hybridization technique was used to identify upregulated genes in the posterior kidney of Nile tilapia at 6h post infection with Aeromonas hydrophila. A total of 31 unique expressed sequence tags (ESTs)(More)
A total of 10 and 13 missense mutations were found in the deduced gyrB and rpoB proteins, respectively, between avirulent AH11NOVO vaccine strain and its virulent parent strain AH11P. SDS-PAGE revealed that six proteins bands were significantly over-expressed in AH11NOVO whereas five bands were significantly over-expressed in AH11P. Mass spectrometry(More)
