Maternal transfer of complement components C3-1, C3-3, C3-4, C4, C5, C7, Bf, and Df to offspring in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Abstract

Defense mechanisms in developing fish are poorly known but before maturation of lymphoid organs and immunocompetence, innate mechanisms are essential. The complement system represents a major part of innate immunity. Our main objective was to map the presence of complement components early in fish development. Rainbow trout eggs, embryos, and hatchlings… (More)
