A quantitative assay for the transmission of European foulbrood (EFB) in artificially raised larvae was developed. This assay was used to determine the concentration of oxytetracycline (OTC) required to prevent larvae from developing EFB and whether 8 fatty acids (undecanoic, lauric [dodecanoic], myristic, myristoleic, ricinoleic, ricinelaidic, homo-y-linolenic and 13,16,19-docosatrienoic acids) which had previously been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of Melissococcus plutonius cultures… CONTINUE READING
