Longevity and effects of temperature on the viability and polar-tube extrusion of spores of Glugea stephani, a microsporidian parasite of commercial flatfish


 Food contamination with respect to microsporidiosis in humans (associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) and in marine fish farming deserves particular attention. For the first time, a study on the longevity and resistance to both heat and freezing of the spores of a vertebrate microsporidian, Glugea stephani, parasitizing a commercial flatfish… (More)
