The protozoan pathogen Perkinsus marinus is the causative agent of Dermo, a lethal disease of the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica, but not the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. To understand the response of these two oysters to parasite exposure, a suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) method was employed to characterize genes up-regulated during parasite challenge in both hemocytes and gills. The number of differentially expressed gene sequences obtained was 107 for C. virginica and… CONTINUE READING
