Genome Sequences of Three Koi Herpesvirus Isolates Representing the Expanding Distribution of an Emerging Disease Threatening Koi and Common Carp Worldwide
ABSTRACT Since the mid-1990s, lethal infections of koi herpesvirus (KHV) have been spreading, threatening the worldwide production of common carp and koi (both Cyprinus carpio). The complete genomeExpand

Evaluating the use of ram and suction during prey capture by cichlid fishes.
We characterized prey-capture strategies in seven species of cichlid fishes representing diverse trophic habits and anticipated feeding abilities. The species examined were Petenia splendida, CichlaExpand

Phylogenetic relationships in the family Alloherpesviridae.
Phylogenetic relationships among herpesviruses (HVs) of mammals, birds, and reptiles have been studied extensively, whereas those among other HVs are relatively unexplored. We have reconstructed theExpand

Koi herpesvirus represents a third cyprinid herpesvirus (CyHV-3) in the family Herpesviridae.
The sequences of four complete genes were analysed in order to determine the relatedness of koi herpesvirus (KHV) to three fish viruses in the family Herpesviridae: carp pox herpesvirus (CyprinidExpand

Distribution and Host Range of Ranaviruses
Ranaviruses are globally distributed pathogens in amphibian, fish, and reptile communities that appear to be emerging. Cases of ranavirus infection or disease have been confirmed in at least 105Expand

Comparative Genomics of Carp Herpesviruses
ABSTRACT Three alloherpesviruses are known to cause disease in cyprinid fish: cyprinid herpesviruses 1 and 3 (CyHV1 and CyHV3) in common carp and koi and cyprinid herpesvirus 2 (CyHV2) in goldfish.Expand

Do habitat shifts drive diversification in teleost fishes? An example from the pufferfishes (Tetraodontidae)
Habitat shifts are implicated as the cause of many vertebrate radiations, yet relatively few empirical studies quantify patterns of diversification following colonization of new habitats in fishes.Expand

Transmission of Ranavirus between Ectothermic Vertebrate Hosts
Transmission is an essential process that contributes to the survival of pathogens. Ranaviruses are known to infect different classes of lower vertebrates including amphibians, fishes and reptiles.Expand

Susceptibility of Koi Carp, Common Carp, Goldfish, and Goldfish × Common Carp Hybrids to Cyprinid Herpesvirus-2 and Herpesvirus-3
Abstract Hybrid goldfish (male goldfish Carassius auratus × female common carp Cyprinus carpio) were completely resistant to mortality following experimental infections with cyprinid herpesvirus-2Expand
