An in vitro fish model to study the interaction between Aeromonas veronii and skin, gill and intestinal epithelial cells was developed using primary cultures of mucosal cells (isolated from healthy organisms). Primary cultures were exposed to Aeromonas veronii strain A186 isolated from a patient with severe gastrointestinal disease. Microbial adherence was(More)
To assess the immunogenic and immunoprotective role of the extracellular lectin from Aeromonas veronii (MCBP), which has affinity for mucosal constituents such as mucin, lactoferrin, immunoglobulins and collagen, spotted sand bass (Paralabrax maculatofasciatus) were orally immunised either with soluble MCBP, adjuvant-conjugated MCBP or immobilised MCBP on(More)
