Systematic granulomas caused by a rickettsia‐like organism in Nile tilapia, Oreochronuis niloticus (L.), from southern Taiwan
Evidence is provided that the systemic granulomas in Nile tilapia were caused by RLOs, and white nodules induced in experimental fish were similar to naturally infected cases and RLOs were reisolated in tissue culture using a CHSE-214 cell line. Expand
Nocardiosis in sea bass, Lateolabrax japonicus, in Taiwan
Based on the growth characteristics, morphological and biochemical properties of the bacterium, and histopathological changes, the isolated bacteria were identified as Nocardiaseriolae, the first report of N. seriolae-infected sea bass in aquaculture. Expand
The immune response of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) againstAphanomyces invadans
Transmission electron microscopy was used to examine the ultrastructural interaction between macrophages and the fungus and the possible role of rainbow trout as a model for A. invadans infection in salmonids is discussed. Expand
Immune response of rainbow trout to extracellular products of Mycobacterium spp.
The results indicate that antibodies to the ECP of Mycobacterium spp. Expand
Systemic infection of Kudoa lutjanus n. sp. (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) in red snapper Lutjanus erythropterus from Taiwan.
It is proposed that the strains isolated from the diseased red snapper be assigned to a new species of Kudoa lutjanus n. Expand
Sequencing of 16S−23S rRNA internal transcribed spacer and its application in the identification of Nocardia seriolae by polymerase chain reaction
Primers specific for Nocardia seriolae were synthesized based on the alignment of 16S-23S rRNA internal transcribed spacer region sequences and did not amplify specific PCR product from other fish pathogens. Expand
Vaccine efficacy of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) from Edwardsiella ictaluri against E. tarda in tilapia.
The recombinant GAPDH (rGAPDH) protein recognized purified GADPH, indicating that it has a strong immunogenicity and can be considered a multi-purpose candidate vaccine against several pathogenic bacteria. Expand
The Study on the Pathogenicity of Nocardia asteroides to Largemouth Bass Micropterus salmoides Lacepede
The largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides Lacepede was given an intramuscular (IM) or intraperitoneal (IP) injection of Nocardia asteroides isolated from a diseased cultured largemouth bass, andExpand
Phosphoglycerate kinase enhanced immunity of the whole cell of Streptococcus agalactiae in tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus.
The results suggested the combinations of recombinant protein and whole cell may elicit immune responses that reach greater protection than that of individual S. agalactiae components. Expand
Phenotypic and genetic characterizations of Streptococcus dysgalactiae strains isolated from fish collected in Japan and other Asian countries.
Streptococcus dysgalactiae isolates collected from diseased fish in Japan, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Indonesia exhibited high phenotypic homogeneity irrespective of the countries from where the strains were collected, and some genotypes of some isolates were apparently distinct from those of the main cluster.
