How fish embryos that develop externally survive microbial attacks is poorly understood. Here, we clearly demonstrated that the embryo extract of zebrafish and its early embryo both displayed antimicrobial activity against microbes, including pathogenic Aeromonas hydrophila, and phosvitin (Pv), a nutritional protein abundant in eggs, was related to this(More)
A phosvitin (Pv)-derived peptide, Pt5, which consists of the C-terminal 55 residues of Pv in zebrafish, has been shown to function as an antimicrobial agent capable of killing microbes in vitro. However, its in vivo role in zebrafish remains unknown. In this study, we clearly demonstrated that Pt5 protected adult zebrafish from pathogenic Aeromonas(More)
