Perkinsus marinus is a protozoan responsible for dramatic mortality in the Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, but not in the Pacific oyster, C. gigas. To understand the host-parasite relationship, we inoculated P. marinus trophozoites into the shell cavity of C. gigas and measured, over 2 months, (i) intensity of infection, (ii) protease inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
