Self-assembled monolayer-based immunoassays for okadaic acid detection in seawater as monitoring tools
(Marine Environmental Research, 2017-11-14)
Rapid and cost-effective methods to monitor the presence of diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) toxins in seawater samples in an easy and reliable manner are required to protect human health and avoid ...
High genetic variability of Alexandrium catenella directly detected in environmental samples from the Southern Austral Ecosystem of Chile
(Marine Pollution Bulletin, 2017-12-21)
Chilean waters are often affected by Alexandrium catenella, one of the leading organisms behind Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs). Genetic variability for this species are commonly carried out from cultured ...
Do the Escherichia coli European Union shellfish safety standards predict the presence of Arcobacter spp., a potential zoonotic pathogen?
(Science of the Total Environment, 2017-12-27)
The genus Arcobacter comprises Campylobacter-related species, considered zoonotic emergent pathogens, the presence of which in water has been associated with fecal pollution. Discharges of fecal polluted ...
A comparison of recirculation aquaculture systems versus biofloc technology culture system for on-growing of fry of Tinca tinca (Cyprinidae) and fry of grey Mugil cephalus (Mugilidae)
The on-growing of tench Tinca tinca fry (1.81 ± 0.6 g) and grey mullet Mugil cephalus fry (0.65 ± 0.2 g) was carried out using two different culture systems, recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) and ...
Pentaplacodinium saltonense gen. et sp. nov. (Dinophyceae) and its relationship to the cyst-defined genus Operculodinium and yessotoxin-producing Protoceratium reticulatum
(Harmful Algae, 2017-12-16)
Strains of a dinoflagellate from the Salton Sea, previously identified as Protoceratium reticulatum and yessotoxin producing, have been reexamined morphologically and genetically and Pentaplacodinium ...
Ontogeny and modulation after PAMPs stimulation of β-defensin, hepcidin, and piscidin antimicrobial peptides in meagre (Argyrosomus regius)
(Fish and Shellfish Immunology, 2017-08-24)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), components of innate immunity, play an important role in protecting fish. In this study we report the molecular cloning of full open reading frames and characterization ...
