- ... The mucosal surfaces of fish allow for the introduction of foreign substances, including antigens, from the surrounding environment. In this study, uptake of Vibrio anguillarum J-O-3 serotype bacterin by Japanese flounder, and the subsequent immune responses were investigated. Immunohistochemistry revealed that the bacterin was taken up through the epithelial cells of gills. The transcription leve ...

- ... Edwardsiella tarda is an intracellular pathogen that causes edwardsiellosis in fish. Although cell-mediated immunity and innate immunity play a major role in protection against intracellular bacterial infection in mammals, their importance in protecting fish against E. tarda infection remain unclear. In this study, we examined cell-mediated and humoral immune responses in ginbuna crucian carp (Car ...
