Detection of acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND) in Mexico.
Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND), which has also been referred to as early mortality syndrome (EMS), initially emerged as a destructive disease of cultured shrimp species in Asia inExpand

Molecular characterization of hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) from the white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei and tissue-specific expression under hypoxia.
Hypoxia inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a key transcription factor that regulates a variety of molecular responses to hypoxia. Some marine crustaceans experience changes of oxygen tension in theirExpand

Functional genomics and proteomics of the cellular osmotic stress response in `non-model' organisms
SUMMARY All organisms are adapted to well-defined extracellular salinity ranges. Osmoregulatory mechanisms spanning all levels of biological organization, from molecules to behavior, are central toExpand

In the spiny lobster (Panulirus interruptus) the prophenoloxidase is located in plasma not in haemocytes.
In the spiny lobster (Panulirus interruptus), unlike other crustaceans most of the prophenoloxidase (proPO) was detected in cell-free plasma (86.3%). In spite of its location, lobster proPOExpand

Oxytetracycline (OTC) accumulation and elimination in hemolymph, muscle and hepatopancreas of white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei following an OTC-feed therapeutic treatment
Abstract The white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, has become a very important species for the development of shrimp aquaculture in Northwest Mexico. However, viral and bacterial diseases areExpand

“Candidatus Hepatobacter penaei,” an Intracellular Pathogenic Enteric Bacterium in the Hepatopancreas of the Marine Shrimp Penaeus vannamei (Crustacea: Decapoda)
ABSTRACT The bacteria that cause necrotizing hepatopancreatitis in Penaeus vannamei adversely affect penaeid shrimp cultured in the western hemisphere. 16S rRNA and gyrase B gene analyses determinedExpand

Alternative splicing generates two lactate dehydrogenase subunits differentially expressed during hypoxia via HIF-1 in the shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei.
Metabolic adjustment to low oxygen exposure (hypoxia) in the white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei implies a shift to anaerobic metabolism. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is a key enzyme of the anaerobicExpand
