The oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica causes significant losses in the aquaculture industry, mainly affecting salmon, trout and catfish. Since the ban of malachite green, effective control measures are currently not available prompting a re-evaluation of the potential for immunological intervention. In this study, the immune response of salmonid cells is investigated at the transcript level, by analysis of a large set of immune response genes in four different rainbow trout cell lines (RTG-2… CONTINUE READING
