- ... Sexually mature rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, were highly susceptible to cryptobiosis caused by Cryptobia salmositica. Spawning female trout were more susceptible (higher parasitaemia and mortality) than sexually mature males. Most infected female trout (seven of nine) with eggs died before or shortly after spawning; however, none of the nine infected sexually matured males or the uninfected ...

- ... Cysteine protease is a metabolic enzyme, whereas metalloprotease is the virulent factor in cryptobiosis caused by Cryptobia salmositica. Recombinant DNA vaccines were produced with the insertion of either the metalloprotease or cysteine protease gene of C. salmositica into plasmid vectors (pEGFP-N). As expected, fishes (Oncorhynchus mykiss and Salmo salar) injected intramuscularly with the metallo ...
