SUMMARY The cellular mucosal and systemic effectors of gilthead sea bream (GSB) (Sparus aurata) involved in the acute immune response to the intestinal parasite Enteromyxum leei were studied in fish experimentally infected by the anal route. In the intestinal inflammatory infiltrates and in lymphohaematopoietic organs (head kidney and spleen) of parasitized fish, the number of plasma cells, B cells (IgM immunoreactive) and mast cells (histamine immunoreactive) were significantly higher, whereas… Expand
Enterospora nucleophila (Microsporidia) in Gilthead Sea Bream (Sparus aurata): Pathological Effects and Cellular Immune Response in Natural Infections
TLDR
The intensity of infection in the intestine was correlated with stunted growth and reduced body condition, and at the beginning of the outbreaks, infection prevalence was highest in intestine and stomach, and in subsequent months, the prevalence decreased in the intestinal and increased in hematopoietic organs and stomach. Expand
Occurrence of immune cells in the intestinal wall of Squalius cephalus infected with Pomphorhynchus laevis.
TLDR
Immune cells of the intestinal epithelium have been described at the ultrastructural level and their possible functions and interactions are discussed. Expand
Acquired protective immune response in a fish-myxozoan model encompasses specific antibodies and inflammation resolution.
TLDR
Results showed that SUR maintained high levels of specific anti-E. Expand
Hints on T cell responses in a fish-parasite model: Enteromyxum leei induces differential expression of T cell signature molecules depending on the organ and the infection status
TLDR
A clear modulation of the T cell response of gilthead sea bream upon E. leei infection is evidence to understand the response against this important parasite and establish effective preventive or palliative measures. Expand
Passive Immunization Delays Disease Outcome in Gilthead Sea Bream Infected With Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa), Despite the Moderate Changes in IgM and IgT Repertoire
TLDR
Results showed that, fish injected with parasite-specific antibodies (spAbs) became infected with the parasite, but showed lower disease signs and intensity of infection than the other groups, indicating a later establishment of the parasite. Expand
Immunity to gastrointestinal microparasites of fish.
TLDR
Fish intestinal parasites cause direct mortalities and also morbidity, poor growth, higher susceptibility to opportunistic pathogens and lower resistance to stress, with numerous genes more strongly regulated in the intestine than at lymphohaematopoietic organs. Expand
Bromodeoxyuridine DNA labelling reveals host and parasite proliferation in a fish-myxozoan model.
TLDR
BrdU immunolabelling and pcna gene expression showed the rapid proliferative response of the fish intestines upon a myxozoan infection and how this response is effectively triggered even before the parasite reaches or establishes in the site. Expand
Histopathological and ultrastructural assessment of two mugilid species infected with myxozoans and helminths.
TLDR
The histopathology and ultrastructure of the intestine of mullets from Comacchio lagoons (northern Italy) naturally infected with myxozoans and helminths were investigated and described, finding damage caused by digeneans was destruction of the mucosal epithelium of the villi, necrosis and degeneration of intestinal epithelial cells.

Intestinal immunity of dogfish Scyliorhinus canicula spiral valve: A histochemical, immunohistochemical and confocal study
&NA; The present study describes histochemical and immunohistochemical characteristics of the spiral valve and its associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) in the dogfish Scyliorhinus canicula. The mucosalExpand
The impact of Anguillicoloides crassus (Nematoda) on European eel swimbladder: histopathology and relationship between neuroendocrine and immune cells
TLDR
In heavily infected swimbladders, it is observed hyperplasia, cellular swelling and abundant vacuolization in the apical portion of the gas gland cells, and more nervous and endocrine elements immunoreactive to a panel of six rabbit polyclonal antibodies in infected Swimbladders compared to uninfected.

Effects of Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa) infection on gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) (Teleostei) intestinal mucus: glycoprotein profile and bacterial adhesion
TLDR
Parasitized fish, compared with unexposed fish, presented intestinal mucus mucins with a lower glycop protein content and glycosylation degree at the anterior and middle intestine, whereas both glycoprotein content andglycoprotein degree increased at the posterior intestine section, though only significantly for the total carbohydrate content. Expand
Chronic exposure to the parasite Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) modulates the immune response and the expression of growth, redox and immune relevant genes in gilthead sea bream, Sparus aurata L.
TLDR
The present work aimed to better know the host immune response and the underlying molecular mechanisms, which may help to understand why some individuals seem to be refractory to the disease. Expand
Gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata L.) innate defence against the parasite Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa)
TLDR
Data demonstrate the involvement of complement activity in the defence mechanisms of the gilthead seabream against the myxosporean E. leei infections in Mediterranean fish farms. Expand
Acidophilic granulocytes of the marine fish gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata L.) produce interleukin-1β following infection with Vibrio anguillarum
TLDR
The blood leukocytes from infected animals that accumulated proIL-1β were shown to be the acidophilic granulocytes, and a rapid mobilization of such cells from the head-kidney to the site of inflammation following infection with V. anguillarum was also observed. Expand
Cell‐mediated cytotoxicity is the main innate immune mechanism involved in the cellular defence of gilthead seabream (Teleostei: Sparidae) against Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa)
TLDR
Data demonstrate that cytotoxic activity may have an important role in the defence of gilthead seabream against the myxosporean E. leei infections. Expand
Response of Ig-positive cells to Enteromyxum scophthalmi (Myxozoa) experimental infection in turbot, Scophthalmus maximus (L.): A histopathological and immunohistochemical study.
TLDR
The results obtained in this study indicate that the infection by E. scophthalmi in turbot induced an immune response that involved changes in the number and distribution of Ig+ cells. Expand
Histopathology and cellular response in Enteromyxum leei (Myxozoa) infections of Diplodus puntazzo (Teleostei).
TLDR
The involvement of the cellular immunity in the response of D. puntazzo to E. leei was demonstrated, and the depletion of this response at a certain point of the infection could contribute to the high virulence of this myxozoan in this fish species. Expand
Intestinal immune response of Silurus glanis and Barbus barbus naturally infected with Pomphorhynchus laevis (Acanthocephala)
TLDR
The results of this study clearly demonstrated that mast cells (MC) were the dominant immune cells which occur at the site of inflammation in both hosts. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of the transcriptome response of gilthead sea bream after challenge with the myxosporean Enteromyxum leei demonstrated a complex interplay between host and/or parasite derived proteases and protease inhibitors, apoptosis, cell proliferation and antioxidant defence genes in exposed fish.
