Variation in Vibrio parahaemolyticus isolates from a single Thai shrimp farm experiencing an outbreak of acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND)
The Thai Department of Fisheries (DOF), 2013 estimated that outbreaks of acute early mortality (often called early mortality syndrome or EMS) in cultivated shrimp were responsible for a 33% drop inExpand

Arabidopsis NAC45/86 direct sieve element morphogenesis culminating in enucleation
Removing the nucleus in sieve elements Although a cell's nucleus performs critical command and control functions, some cell types, such as enucleated red blood cells, seem to do without. SieveExpand

Review of current disease threats for cultivated penaeid shrimp in Asia
Abstract Several shrimp diseases are new or newly emerged in Asia, including acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND), hepatopancreatic microsporidiosis (HPM), hepatopancreaticExpand

Draft Genome Sequences of Four Strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Three of Which Cause Early Mortality Syndrome/Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease in Shrimp in China and Thailand
ABSTRACT We sequenced four Vibrio parahaemolyticus strains, three of which caused serious acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease. Sequence analysis of the virulent strains revealed not only genesExpand

Characterization and PCR Detection Of Binary, Pir-Like Toxins from Vibrio parahaemolyticus Isolates that Cause Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND) in Shrimp
Unique isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus (VPAHPND) have previously been identified as the causative agent of acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND) in shrimp. AHPND is characterized byExpand

AP4 method for two-tube nested PCR detection of AHPND isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
Abstract Our previous work on the mechanism of virulence for the unique isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus that cause acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (VP AHPND) revealed that it was mediatedExpand

Double-dose β-glucan treatment in WSSV-challenged shrimp reduces viral replication but causes mortality possibly due to excessive ROS production.
In our research efforts to reduce the impact of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) disease outbreaks in shrimp aquaculture, we studied the effect of β-glucan administration to activate theExpand

Potential of RNAi applications to control viral diseases of farmed shrimp.
Viral pathogens pose a primary threat to global shrimp aquaculture. Despite the urgent industry need for them, practical anti-viral control methods are unavailable due, in part, to lack of anExpand

Use of microalgae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii for production of double-stranded RNA against shrimp virus
Abstract RNA interference has been proposed to be a promising tool for combating shrimp viruses. Antiviral double-stranded (ds)RNA has been mostly produced in Escherichia coli -expression systemExpand

White spot syndrome virus VP28 specific double-stranded RNA provides protection through a highly focused siRNA population
Several studies have demonstrated that injection of double-stranded RNAs (dsRNA) homologous to mRNA for the white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) viral protein 28 (VP28) can induce protection in shrimpExpand
