Genome Sequences of Three Koi Herpesvirus Isolates Representing the Expanding Distribution of an Emerging Disease Threatening Koi and Common Carp Worldwide
TLDR
The conclusion that at least some of these mutations occurred in vivo prompts the hypothesis that loss of gene functions might be associated with emergence of the disease and provides a basis for further investigations into the molecular epidemiology of the virus. Expand
Identification and analysis of an interleukin 8-like molecule in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss.
TLDR
An interleukin 8 (IL-8) homologue has been identified in the rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss and RT-PCR reveals a low level constitutive expression of the IL-8 homologue in many tissues, including spleen, heart, liver, head kidney and gill. Expand
Cloning, expression and antimicrobial activity of crustinPm1, a major isoform of crustin, from the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon.
TLDR
Antimicrobial assays demonstrated that recombinant crustinPm1 exhibited antimicrobial activity against only Gram-positive bacteria with strong inhibition against Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus iniae, and the study of inhibition mechanism revealed that the antimacterial activity of crustinpm1 was a result of bactericidal effect. Expand
Immune modulation and expression of cytokine genes in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss upon probiotic feeding.
TLDR
Probing the immune modulation including the expression of cytokine genes following dietary administration of three selected probiotic bacteria to fish reveals its influence on the immune system of fish, both at cellular and molecular levels. Expand
Antimicrobial peptides discovered in the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon using the EST approach.
TLDR
Two cDNA libraries were prepared from hemocytes of normal and Vibrio harveyi-challenged black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon and ESTs representing the antimicrobial peptide (AMP) homologues, antilipopolysaccharide factors (ALF), penaeidins and crustins were discovered. Expand
Molecular cloning, expression and evolution of the Japanese flounder goose-type lysozyme gene, and the lytic activity of its recombinant protein.
TLDR
The goose-type (g-type) lysozyme gene from the Japanese flounder genomic DNA library is cloned, the first such data in fish and only the second after the chicken g-type lyso enzyme gene. Expand
Two different types of hepcidins from the Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus
TLDR
Synthesized Hep‐JF2 peptide showed antimicrobial activity, while synthesized Hep-JF1 peptide did not against several bacteria including fish‐pathogenic bacteria used in this study. Expand
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Amplification of DNA of Red Sea Bream Iridovirus (RSIV)
TLDR
PCR products were not obtained at 3 months post-challenge from the spleens of red sea bream infected by intraperitoneal inoculation of RSIV, and none of the PCR products were obtained from the supernatant of tissue-cultured FHM cells infected with frog virus 3 or from the lymphocystis tissue of Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus, infected with fish lymphocysts disease virus. Expand
Koi herpesvirus represents a third cyprinid herpesvirus (CyHV-3) in the family Herpesviridae.
TLDR
Findings indicate that KHV should join the group of related lower-vertebrate viruses in the family Herpesviridae under the formal designation Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3). Expand
Characterization and function of kuruma shrimp lysozyme possessing lytic activity against Vibrio species.
TLDR
Interestingly, phylogenetic analysis revealed that the kuruma shrimp lysozyme was more closely related to vertebrate c-type lysozymes, and suggested that shrimp ly sozyme affects a greater variety of pathogens. Expand
