Polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid in vivo enhances Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) immunity and alters the fish metabolome
Poly (I:C) is a viral pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP) and a synthetic dsRNA analogue, which orchestrates antiviral responses through well conserved toll-like receptor 3 (tlr3), retinoicExpand
Metabolic and immune responses of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) smolts to a short-term Poly (I:C) challenge.
Poly (I:C) was administered in vivo to chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) post smolts to establish immune responses on haematological and cellular functional parameters, including spleen (SP),Expand
