Recent Advances in Our Knowledge of the Myxozoa
TLDR
It is indicated that the Myxozoa are closely related to Cnidaria, and marine taxa at the genus level branch separately from genera that usually infect freshwater fishes; taxa cluster more by development and tissue location than by spore morphology. Expand
Mass mortalities in Koi carp, Cyprinus carpio, associated with gill and skin disease
TLDR
Transmission electron mi­ croscopy revealed the presence of virus-like particles in the nuclei and cytoplasm of respiratory epithelial cells of gills and confirmed the infectious nature of the disease to different breeds of Cypri11us cwpio. Expand
Light and electron microscopic observations on the route of the triactinomyxon-sporoplasm of Myxobolus cerebralis from epidermis into rainbow trout cartilage
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the proliferative phase (presporogonic development) and the sporogonic phase of the life cycle are demonstrated and discussed and the ultrast structure of the sporoplasm migrates between the epidermal cells and enters the epithelia and multiplies intracellularly. Expand
Detection of Aphanomyces astaci in North American crayfish by polymerase chain reaction.
TLDR
Investigation of various parts of the exoskeleton of 3 North American crayfish species revealed that for O. limosus and P. leniusculus the telson and soft abdominal cuticle yielded a positive PCR reaction most frequently, so no conclusion as to preferred infestation site(s) could be drawn. Expand
Light and electron microscopic studies on the chronological development of Myxobolus cerebralis to the actinosporean stage in Tubifex tubifex.
TLDR
The ultrastructure of all four phases of Myxobolus cerebralis, schizogony, gametogonies, gametic development and sporogonic development, is demonstrated and discussed. Expand
Rapid and sensitive reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction based detection and differential diagnosis of fish pathogenic rhabdoviruses in organ samples and cultured cells.
TLDR
This effective and powerful assay for detecting VHSV and IHNV by means of PCR has great advantages compared with the presently used procedures. Expand
Light and electron microscopic studies onMyxobolus cotti El-Matbouli and Hoffmann, 1987 infecting the central nervous system of the bullhead (Cottus gobio)
TLDR
Light microscopy, the ultrastructure of pansporoblasts, sporogenesis and mature spores are described, and aggregations of spores and polysporoblastic trophozoites compressed and replaced large areas of the white and grey matter of the brain and spinal cord are described. Expand
Methods of stunning freshwater fish: impact on meat quality and aspects of animal welfare
TLDR
Three methods of stunning fish were compared: a manual technique, one using electricity and one using CO2, and in many cases, fish anaesthetized manually were ranked to be better than those in the other groups. Expand
Morphological effects of acute and chronic atrazine exposure in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
TLDR
Alterations of the different components of renal corpuscles and of renal tubules, as well as an increase in cells with mitotic figures in renal hemopoietic interstitium were constant features at lower chronic exposure, while necrosis of endothelial cells and renal hemopedietic tissue were prominent at concentrations of 80 μg/L.
