Fish acquire protective immunity against the ciliated protozoan parasite Ichthyophthirius multifiliis following sublethal infection or inoculation with I. multifiliis immobilization antigens (i-antigens). In both cases, parasite-immobilizing antibodies have been identified in sera and mucosal secretions. To investigate the kinetics of this immune response, antibody levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in the sera and cutaneous mucus of channel catfish (Ictalurus… CONTINUE READING
