Identification of expressed genes in carp (Cyprinus carpio) head kidney cells after in vitro treatment with immunostimulants.

We analysed a total of 530 expressed genes from the head kidney cells of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) treated by immunostimulants. Sequences of the cDNA clones were compared with sequences in the GenBank database. Immune-related genes identified after in vitro stimulation of carp head kidney cells were: BPI/LBP, C-type lectins, fucolectins, CC-chemokine… (More)
