Vibriosis is a severe infection occurring in many commercially important marine fish species. In this study, vaccines containing Vibrio harveyi recombinant outer membrane protein K (rOmpK), outer membrane protein U (rOmpU) and rOmpK-OmpU fusion protein in addition to the metabolizable MontanideTM ISA 763 A VG adjuvant were developed and evaluated in the orange-spotted grouper. The results indicate that recombinant V. harveyi protein-based vaccines resulted in a remarkably higher expression of… Expand

Vibrio harveyi: a serious pathogen of fish and invertebrates in mariculture
It is recognized that V. harveyi may enter the so-called viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state, and resuscitation of the VBNC cells may be an important reason for vibriosis outbreaks in aquaculture. Expand
Dual RNA-Seq uncovers the function of an ABC transporter gene in the host-pathogen interaction between Epinephelus coioides and Pseudomonas plecoglossicida.
Both the activation of the host immune pathways and depression of pathogenic virulence-related pathways facilitated E. coioides to remove L321_23611-RNAi strain than the wild type strain of P. plecoglossicida. Expand
Vibrio harveyi: A brief survey of general characteristics and recent epidemiological traits associated with climate change.
The need for future studies able to address the joint impact of environmental and anthropogenic factors on the long-term dynamics and virulence of V. harveyi populations at the global scale is highlighted. Expand
Vibrio harveyi isolated from marine aquaculture species in eastern China and virulence to the large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea)
The results suggest that the virulence of various V. harveyi strains to fish is associated with the plasmids they carry, and this study confirmed that V.Harveyi isolates obtained from animals farmed in the coastal region of east China were genetically diverse. Expand
MicroRNA-182-3p negatively regulates cytokines expression by targeting TLR5M in orange-spotted grouper, Epinephelus coioides.
This study is the first to demonstrate that miR-182-3p suppresses pro-inflammatory cytokines expression by regulating the TLR signaling pathway and thereby suppresses the expression of pro- inflammatory cytokines. Expand
A single-step, high throughput, and highly reproducible method for measuring IgM quantity and avidity directly from fish serum via biolayer interferometry (BLI).
