PKX (Phylum Myxozoa) is an important pathogen affecting salmonid culture in Western Europe and North America. All of the available oligonucleotide probes developed for the PCR amplification of PKX DNA were examined for their ability to detect PKX in fixed tissue sections using in situ hybridisation. Out of the 12 probes examined, only four stained PKX in… CONTINUE READING
