Acquired cell-mediated protection in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, against the haemoflagellate, Cryptobia salmositica

  title={Acquired cell-mediated protection in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, against the haemoflagellate, Cryptobia salmositica},
  author={Monika Mehta and Patrick Woo},
  journal={Parasitology Research},
Disease-free rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum), were inoculated with either the pathogenic Cryptobia salmositica Katz, 1951 or with the attenuated vaccine strain of the parasite. A number of vaccinated fish were then challenged at 6 weeks post-vaccination with pathogenic C. salmositica. Respiratory burst activity in stimulated macrophages (isolated from infected or vaccinated fish) was demonstrated by detection of released super-oxide anions, and the protein contents in these cells… CONTINUE READING
