Establishment of epidermal cell lines derived from the skin of the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus). (1/109)

The Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), a marine mammal found off the Atlantic coast, has become the focus of considerable attention because of an increasing number of mortality events witnessed in this species over the last several years along the southeastern United States. Assessment of the impact of environmental stressors on bottlenose dolphins (BND) has been difficult because of the protected status of these marine mammals. The studies presented herein focused on establishing epidermal cell cultures and cell lines as tools for the in vitro evaluation of environmental stressors on BND skin. Epidermal cell cultures were established from skin samples obtained from Atlantic BND and subjected to karyotype analysis. These cultures were further characterized using immunohistochemical methods demonstrating expression of cytokeratins. By two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE), we observed that the proteomic profile of BND skin tissue samples shared distinct similarities with that of skin-derived cultures. Epidermal cell cultures were transfected with a plasmid encoding the SV40 small t- and large T-antigens, as well as the neomycin-resistance gene. Five neomycin-resistant clones were isolated and expanded, and all of them proliferated at a faster rate than nontransfected BND epidermal cultures, which exhibited signs of senescence. Cell lysates prepared from two transfected clones were shown to express, by Western blot analysis, both SV40 tumor antigens. These experimental results are consistent with the concept that transfected clones expressing SV40 tumor antigens represent immortalized BND cell lines. Epidermal cell lines derived from Tursiops truncatus will provide a unique tool for studying key features of the interaction occurring between dolphins and the environment in which they live at their most crucial interface: the skin.  (+info)

Fatal necrotizing fasciitis and myositis in a captive common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) associated with Streptococcus agalactiae. (2/109)

A common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) was presented for necropsy after acute onset of gastrointestinal signs and cutaneous lesions that rapidly progressed to death. Gross and microscopic findings were characterized by locally extensive severe necrohemorrhagic fasciitis and cellulitis, and severe necrotizing myositis in the head and dorsocranial thorax, with numerous disseminated gram-positive cocci. Streptococcus agalactiae was isolated from the lesions and from visceral organs (liver and lung), and it was identified by standard microbiology techniques. This communication is the first report of necrotizing fasciitis in a marine mammal associated with S. agalactiae.  (+info)

Signature whistle shape conveys identity information to bottlenose dolphins. (3/109)

Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) develop individually distinctive signature whistles that they use to maintain group cohesion. Unlike the development of identification signals in most other species, signature whistle development is strongly influenced by vocal learning. This learning ability is maintained throughout life, and dolphins frequently copy each other's whistles in the wild. It has been hypothesized that signature whistles can be used as referential signals among conspecifics, because captive bottlenose dolphins can be trained to use novel, learned signals to label objects. For this labeling to occur, signature whistles would have to convey identity information independent of the caller's voice features. However, experimental proof for this hypothesis has been lacking. This study demonstrates that bottlenose dolphins extract identity information from signature whistles even after all voice features have been removed from the signal. Thus, dolphins are the only animals other than humans that have been shown to transmit identity information independent of the caller's voice or location.  (+info)

Individual-based model framework to assess population consequences of polychlorinated biphenyl exposure in bottlenose dolphins. (4/109)

Marine mammals are susceptible to the effects of anthropogenic contaminants. Here we examine the effect of different polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) accumulation scenarios on potential population growth rates using, as an example, data obtained for the population of bottlenose dolphins from Sarasota Bay, Florida. To achieve this goal, we developed an individual-based model framework that simulates the accumulation of PCBs in the population and modifies first-year calf survival based on maternal blubber PCB levels. In our example the current estimated annual PCB accumulation rate for the Sarasota Bay dolphin population might be depressing the potential population growth rate. However, our predictions are limited both by model naivety and parameter uncertainty. We emphasize the need for more data collection on the relationship between maternal blubber PCB levels and calf survivorship, the annual accumulation of PCBs in the blubber of females, and the transfer of PCBs to the calf through the placenta and during lactation. Such data require continued efforts directed toward long-term studies of known individuals in wild and semiwild populations.  (+info)

Functional imaging of dolphin brain metabolism and blood flow. (5/109)

This report documents the first use of magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of living dolphins to register functional brain scans, allowing for the exploration of potential mechanisms of unihemispheric sleep. Diazepam has been shown to induce unihemispheric slow waves (USW), therefore we used functional imaging of dolphins with and without diazepam to observe hemispheric differences in brain metabolism and blood flow. MRIs were used to register functional brain scans with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) in trained dolphins. Scans using SPECT revealed unihemispheric blood flow reduction following diazepam doses greater than 0.55 mg kg(-1) for these 180-200 kg animals. Scans using PET revealed hemispheric differences in brain glucose consumption when scans with and without diazepam were compared. The findings suggest that unihemispheric reduction in blood flow and glucose metabolism in the hemisphere showing USW are important features of unihemispheric sleep. Functional scans may also help to elucidate the degree of hemispheric laterality of sensory and motor systems as well as in neurotransmitter or molecular mechanisms of unihemispheric sleep in delphinoid cetaceans. The findings also demonstrate the potential value of functional scans to explore other aspects of dolphin brain physiology as well as pathology.  (+info)

Dolphin continuous auditory vigilance for five days. (6/109)

The present report describes the first study of continuous vigilance in dolphins. Two adult bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), WEN (male) and SAY (female), maintained a very high detection rate of randomly presented, infrequent, 1.5-s target tones in a background of frequent 0.5-s equal-amplitude tones over five continuous 120-h sessions. The animals were able to maintain high levels (WEN 97, 87, 99%; SAY 93, 96%) of target detection without signs of sleep deprivation as indicated by behavior, blood indices or marked sleep rebound during 24 h of continuous post-experiment observation. Target response time overall (F = 0.384; P = 0.816) did not change between day 1 and day 5. However, response time was significantly slower (F = 21.566, P = 0.019) during the night (21.00-04.00 h) when the dolphins would have ordinarily been resting or asleep.  (+info)

Characterization of a Brucella sp. strain as a marine-mammal type despite isolation from a patient with spinal osteomyelitis in New Zealand. (7/109)

Naturally acquired infection of humans with a marine mammal-associated Brucella sp. has only been reported once previously in a study describing infections of two patients from Peru. We report the isolation and characterization of a strain of Brucella from a New Zealand patient that appears most closely related to strains previously identified from marine mammals. The isolate was preliminarily identified as Brucella suis using conventional bacteriological tests in our laboratory. However, the results profile was not an exact match, and the isolate was forwarded to four international reference laboratories for further identification. The reference laboratories identified the isolate as either B. suis or B. melitensis by traditional bacteriological methods in three laboratories and by a molecular test in the fourth laboratory. Molecular characterization by PCR, PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism, and DNA sequencing of the bp26 gene; IS711; the omp genes omp25, omp31, omp2a, and omp2b; IRS-PCR fragments I, III, and IV; and five housekeeping gene fragments was conducted to resolve the discrepant identification of the isolate. The isolate was identified to be closely related to a Brucella sp. originating from a United States bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and common seals (Phoca vitulina).  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of the first American bottlenose dolphin papillomavirus: Tursiops truncatus papillomavirus type 2. (8/109)

A novel papillomavirus (PV) was isolated from a genital condyloma of a free-ranging bottlenose dolphin inhabiting the coastal waters of Charleston Harbor, SC, USA: Tursiops truncatus papillomavirus type 2 (TtPV2). This novel virus represents the first isolated North American cetacean PV and the first American bottlenose dolphin PV. After the viral genome was cloned, sequenced and characterized genetically, phylogenetic analyses revealed that TtPV2 is most similar to the only published cetacean PV isolated and characterized thus far, Phocoena spinipinnis PV type 1 (PsPV1). A striking feature of the genome of TtPV2, as well as that of PsPV1, is the lack of an E7 open reading frame, which typically encodes one of the oncogenic proteins believed to be responsible for malignant transformation in the high-risk mucosotropic human papillomaviruses (HPVs). TtPV2 E6 contains a PDZ-binding motif that has been shown to be involved in transformation in the case of high-risk genital HPVs.  (+info)

In order to estimate the total bycatch in gillnet fisheries and to assess the impact on dolphin populations in the Menai Bay Conservation Area, a survey using independent observers aboard the fishing vessels was conducted in 2003/2004. The observer programme covered 23.6% and 24.5% of the drift- and bottom set gillnets effort, respectively. The estimated total bycatch was 13 Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins in drift gillnets and 4 humpback dolphins in bottom set gillnets representing 9.6% and 6.3%, respectively of the estimated 136 Indo-Pacific bottlenose and 63 humpback dolphins resident in the area in 2002. These bycatch levels were not considered sustainable. In 2007/2008 a second observer programme was conducted in the same area to investigate the effectiveness of acoustic alarms (pingers) in reducing the bycatch of dolphins in the drift- and bottom set gillnets. The observed effort in the drift gillnets was 257 sets without pingers and 251 sets with pingers representing 21% and 20% of the ...
Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus), and the Burrunan dolphin (Tursiops australis). Bottlenose dolphins inhabit warm and temperate seas worldwide, being found everywhere except for the Arctic and Antarctic Circle regions. Bottlenose dolphins live in groups typically of 10-30 members, called pods, but group size varies from single individuals up to more than 1,000. Their diets consist mainly of forage fish. Dolphins often work as a team to harvest fish schools, but they also hunt individually. Dolphins search for prey primarily using echolocation, which is similar to sonar. They emit clicking sounds and listen for the return echos to determine the location and shape of nearby items, including potential prey. Bottlenose dolphins also use sound for ...

There is growing awareness of underwater noise in a variety of marine habitats, and how such noise may adversely affect marine species. This is of particular concern for acoustically-specialised species, such as dolphins. In order to ascertain the potential impacts of anthropogenic noise on these animals, baseline information is required for defining the soundscape of dolphin habitats. The Swan-Canning River system in Western Australia flows through the city of Perth, and experiences numerous anthropogenic activities. Despite this, the river system is home to a community of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus). To provide a baseline soundscape description of dolphin habitat, over 11,600 h of acoustic data were analysed from five sites within the Swan River (from Fremantle Inner Harbour to 20 km upstream) across an eight-year period. Multiple sound sources were recorded at these sites, including: snapping shrimp; fishes; dolphins; pile-driving; bridge and road traffic; and vessel

Artificial insemination (AI) with sex-sorted bottlenose dolphin spermatozoa provides female calves for obtaining more cohesive social groups and optimum genetic management of captive populations. However, distance of animals to the sorting facility represents a limit to the procedure. Although one bottlenose dolphin calf has been born using spermatozoa from frozen-thawed, sorted and recryopreserved spermatozoa, critical evaluation of the steps involved in this process is required to maximize its efficiency for future AIs and expansion of the technology to other species. Two experiments were designed to determine the efficiency of the sorting process and the quality of frozen-thawed bottlenose dolphin spermatozoa during sorting and recryopreservation. In experiment 1, the effect of two washing media (with and without 4 percent egg yolk, v/v) following density gradient centrifugation (DGC) on sperm recovery rate and in vitro characteristics of cryopreserved spermatozoa was examined.

Parainfluenza virus (PIV) is a leading cause of respiratory infections in humans. A novel virus closely related to human and bovine parainfluenza viruses types 3 (HPIV-3 and BPIV-3), named Tursiops truncatus parainfluenza virus type 1 (TtPIV-1), was isolated from a dolphin with respiratory disease. We developed a dolphin-specific ELISA to measure acute- and convalescent-phase PIV antibodies in dolphins during 1999-2006 with hemograms similar to that of the positive control. PIV seroconversion occurred concurrently with an abnormal hemogram in 22 animals, of which 7 (31.8%) had respiratory signs. Seroprevalence surveys were conducted on 114 healthy bottlenose dolphins in Florida and California. When the most conservative interpretation of positive was used, 11.4% of healthy dolphins were antibody positive, 29.8% were negative, and 58.8% were inconclusive. PIV appears to be a common marine mammal virus that may be of human health interest because of the similarity of TtPIV-1 to BPIV-3 and HPIV-3.
A virus similar to measles in humans is being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.. Experts at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say the Morbillivirus infects the lungs and the brain, causes pneumonia and abnormal behaviour, and is often fatal.. The outbreak has killed 333 bottlenose dolphins in the mid-Atlantic region since July, and may last for a year, possibly being worse than an outbreak 25 years ago which killed more than 740 animals.. Teri Rowles of the NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program says experts are worried about a repeat of those deaths.. We are expecting that if indeed this plays out the way that die-off occurred, that we are looking at mortality being higher and morbillivirus spreading southward and likely continuing until spring of 2014, she said.. Nine times the average number of dolphins have washed up along the shores of the east coast this summer.. Most of the dolphins found on beaches have ...

I learned that they are befriend-able and if approached in the right way, with the right attitude, these sentient beings would never cease to amaze.. The coastal waters off the east African seaboard are home to populations of semi resident Indo-Pacific, inshore bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus).

Mississippi designated the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) as the official state water mammal in 1974; common along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
ABSTRACT: An unusual mortality event (UME) involving primarily common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus of all size classes stranding along coastal Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, USA, started in early 2010 and continued into 2014. During this northern Gulf of Mexico UME, a distinct cluster of perinatal dolphins (total body length ,115 cm) stranded in Mississippi and Alabama during 2011. The proportion of annual dolphin strandings that were perinates between 2009 and 2013 were compared to baseline strandings (2000-2005). A case-reference study was conducted to compare demographics, histologic lesions, and Brucella sp. infection prevalence in 69 UME perinatal dolphins to findings from 26 reference perinates stranded in South Carolina and Florida outside of the UME area. Compared to reference perinates, UME perinates were more likely to have died in utero or very soon after birth (presence of atelectasis in 88 vs. 15%, p , 0.0001), have fetal distress (87 vs. 27%, p , 0.0001), and have ...

Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) produce individually identifiable calls called signature whistles. Using underwater acoustic recorders off the coast of Maryland, USA, in the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, Bailey et al. found a total of 1,518 unique signature whistles. This indicates the minimum number of dolphins that occurred within the study area during 2016-2018. There were reoccurrences of the same signature whistles across years and sites, indicating site fidelity as well as movement of bottlenose dolphins between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic coast off Maryland. These results, published in the August issue of Ecosphere, can help inform management of this protected species.. Ecosphere ...

Its called sharking, and it could kill them. Their pursuit of mullet has lured them into stingray territory, and stingray wounds account for 10 percent of all dolphin fatalities in the bay.We know this

The rise in tourism, fishing and sea transport between the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands is compromising the wellbeing of a small population of common bottlenose dolphins living in coastal waters off the Pityusic Islands. This is the conclusion of a study led by the University of Barcelona (Spain), which has, for the first time, counted these mammals in summer and spring, which are crucial seasons for them.
According to marine biologist Dagmar Fertl, this event was only the third reported sighting of an albino bottlenose dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico (going back to 1994), and the fourteenth spotting anywhere in the world (the first coming in 1962). Biologists speculate that, in addition to the rarity of their birth, the scarcity of albino bottlenose dolphins might be due to their having poor eyesight, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and a coloration that provides poor camouflaging, factors which could significantly decrease their chances of reaching maturity. ...
The feeding performance of two bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and one juvenile pygmy and dwarf sperm whale (Kogia breviceps and K. sima) was compared during controlled feeding trials. Feeding behavior was characterized and a Ram-Suction Index (RSI) measured. The feeding behavior of both genera was composed of four phases: preparatory (Phase I), jaw opening (Phase II), gular depression (Phase III) and jaw closing (Phase IV). The mean Kogia total feeding cycle duration (533 ms; SD±150) was shorter than the mean for Tursiops (847 ms; SD±349). The mean maximum gape angle was greater for Kogia (56.6º; SD±3.3) than for Tursiops (25.5º; SD±8.5). The mean Kogia RSI (-0.04; SD±0.378) was significantly less (p,0.001) than the mean Tursiops RSI (0.71; SD±0.14), indicating a suction and ram-based strategy for Kogia and Tursiops, respectively. The significantly shorter (p,0.05) Kogia jaw opening phase (172 ms; SD±75) supports the RSI results. Tursiops displayed two feeding behaviors, a ...

Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) is a pest of stored maize that has caused major problems since appearing in Africa, though it is regarded as a minor pest in Mexico and Central America. The ability of P. truncatus to feed and breed on a great variety of environments, raises the questions to whether this beetle can break down starch and cellulose. The digestive system of P. truncatus may explain its host range. The digestive systems of adults and larvae of three P. truncatus strains from different geographic regions (Mexico, Togo, and Tanzania) were the subjects of the present work. The anatomical study of the digestive system of P. truncatus shows that the guts of adults and larvae were externally different and that these differences reflect different life spans and their different feeding habits. The internal anatomy, is similar, with the exception of the presence of peritrophic membrane and glycogen-like granules in the midgut of the adult stage. There is a cryptonephric system present in both ...

Physical Characteristics. The colour of this whales long, stocky, cylindrical body is a characteristically brown, grey-brown or grey colour with lighter shades on the belly. There are often grey markings on the body, as well as scars and scratches. The forehead is exceptionally bulbous, perhaps even hanging over the beak. Two to four little teeth are found in the bottom jaw. In males, they erupt, even when the mouth is closed. In females, they stay beneath the surface of the gum, proving completely useless to the animal. The small, pointy dorsal fin is situated far behind the centre of the body and might be of a darker shade than the rest of the body. The small pectoral flippers are also pointed and are situated very close to the head of the animal. The tail fin, also known as a fluke, is broad, with concave trailing edges and a bit of an outward bulge in the centre, as opposed to a notch. When fully grown, the Northern Bottlenose Whale is about seven to nine metres long, and will weigh between ...
