Proliferative kidney disease (PKD), a condition associated with high mortality in salmonid fish, represents an abnormal immune response to the presence of an enigmatic myxozoan, which has been designated simply as PKX organism because its generic and specific status are obscure. Phylogenetic analyses of partial sequences of the 18S rDNA of PKX and of myxozoan parasites infecting the bryozoans Cristatella mucedo, Pectinatella magnifica and Plumatella rugosa, including the previously named… CONTINUE READING
