Isolation of Vibrio vulnificus serovar E from aquatic habitats in Taiwan. (1/495)

The existence of strains of Vibrio vulnificus serovar E that are avirulent for eels is reported in this work. These isolates were recovered from water and oysters and differed from eel virulent strains in (i) fermentation and utilization of mannitol, (ii) ribotyping after HindIII digestion, and (iii) susceptibility to eel serum. Lipopolysaccharide of these strains lacked the highest molecular weight immunoreactive bands, which are probably involved in serum resistance.  (+info)

Acidification of the phagosome in Crassostrea virginica hemocytes following engulfment of zymosan. (2/495)

Phagocytic hemocytes are responsible for engulfing and internally degrading foreign organisms within the hemolymph and tissue of the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica. Since rapid acidification of the phagosome lumen is typically essential for activation of hydrolytic and reactive oxygen intermediate (ROI) producing enzymes in vertebrate cells, we measured phagosomal pH in oyster hemocytes by using the emission fluorescence of two fluorescent probes, rhodamine and Oregon Green 488 (OG 488), conjugated to zymosan to determine whether oyster hemocyte phagosomes become acidified after phagocytosis of zymosan. The average pH of 1079 phagosomes within 277 hemocytes 1 h after phagocytosis of zymosan was 3.9 +/- 0.03. Observations of 141 hemocytes with internalized zymosan by light microscopy revealed that, over a 60-min time period, 51% of highly granular hemocytes became partially granular, and 29% became agranular. In addition, 83% of partially granular hemocytes containing zymosan at time = 0 became agranular within 60 min. A comparison revealed that the phagosomes of agranular hemocytes were much more acidic (pH 3.1 +/- 0.02) than those of highly granular hemocytes (4.9 +/- 0.02; P < 0.05). These values are significantly lower than most reported in the literature for blood cells from metazoan organisms.  (+info)

Use of antibacterial agents To elucidate the etiology of juvenile oyster disease (JOD) in Crassostrea virginica and numerical dominance of an alpha-proteobacterium in JOD-affected animals. (3/495)

Since 1988, juvenile oyster disease (JOD) has resulted in high seasonal losses of cultured Eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) in the Northeast. Although the cause of JOD remains unknown, most evidence is consistent with either a bacterial or a protistan etiology. For the purpose of discerning between these hypotheses, the antibacterial antibiotics norfloxacin and sulfadimethoxine-ormetoprim (Romet-B) were tested for the ability to delay the onset of JOD mortality and/or reduce the JOD mortality of cultured juvenile C. virginica. Hatchery-produced C. virginica seed were exposed in triplicate groups of 3,000 animals each to either norfloxacin, sulfadimethoxine-ormetoprim, or filter-sterilized seawater (FSSW) and deployed in floating trays on the Damariscotta River of Maine on 17 July 1997. Each week thereafter, a subset of animals from each group was reexposed to the assigned treatment. Repeated immersion in either a sulfadimethoxine-ormetoprim or a norfloxacin solution resulted in a delay in the onset of JOD mortality in treated animals and reduced weekly mortality rates. Weekly treatments with either norfloxacin or sulfadimethoxine-ormetoprim also resulted in a statistically significant reduction in cumulative mortality (55 and 67% respectively) compared to animals treated weekly with FSSW (81%) or those that had received only a single treatment with either norfloxacin, sulfadimethoxine-ormetoprim, or FSSW (77, 84, and 82%, respectively). Bacteriological analyses revealed a numerically dominant bacterium in those animals with obvious signs of JOD. Sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA gene from these bacteria indicates that they are a previously undescribed species of marine alpha-proteobacteria.  (+info)

Purification and partial genome characterization of a herpes-like virus infecting the Japanese oyster, Crassostrea gigas. (4/495)

First observed in 1972 in Crassostrea virginica, herpes-like viruses of bivalves were more recently found to be associated with high mortality rates in other cultured oyster species, such as Crassostrea gigas and Ostrea edulis. The diagnosis of herpes-like virus infections is performed currently by laborious histological and transmission electron microscope examinations. Preparation of specific reagents for use in more amenable diagnostic techniques prompted purification of virus particles and investigation of the viral genome. This paper is the first description of the purification of a virus pathogen from a bivalve mollusc. A procedure was developed which facilitated purification of large amounts of virus particles on the 40-50% interface of sucrose gradients. Transmission electron microscopy showed that a purified virus suspension contained capsids and enveloped virus particles. High molecular mass viral DNA was extracted, and the genome size was estimated by the summation of the sizes of restriction endonuclease fragments to be approximately 180 kbp. Partial cloning of the virus genome was achieved and the specificity of certain cloned fragments was established by dot blot hybridization.  (+info)

Factors influencing in vitro killing of bacteria by hemocytes of the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica). (5/495)

A tetrazolium dye reduction assay was used to study factors governing the killing of bacteria by oyster hemocytes. In vitro tests were performed on bacterial strains by using hemocytes from oysters collected from the same location in winter and summer. Vibrio parahaemolyticus strains, altered in motility or colonial morphology (opaque and translucent), and Listeria monocytogenes mutants lacking catalase, superoxide dismutase, hemolysin, and phospholipase activities were examined in winter and summer. Vibrio vulnificus strains, opaque and translucent (with and without capsules), were examined only in summer. Among V. parahaemolyticus and L. monocytogenes, significantly (P < 0.05) higher levels of killing by hemocytes were observed in summer than in winter. L. monocytogenes was more resistant than V. parahaemolyticus or V. vulnificus to the bactericidal activity of hemocytes. In winter, both translucent strains of V. parahaemolyticus showed significantly (P < 0.05) higher susceptibility to killing by hemocytes than did the wild-type opaque strain. In summer, only one of the V. parahaemolyticus translucent strains showed significantly (P < 0.05) higher susceptibility to killing by hemocytes than did the wild-type opaque strain. No significant differences (P > 0.05) in killing by hemocytes were observed between opaque (encapsulated) and translucent (nonencapsulated) pairs of V. vulnificus. Activities of 19 hydrolytic enzymes were measured in oyster hemolymph collected in winter and summer. Only one enzyme, esterase (C4), showed a seasonal difference in activity (higher in winter than in summer). These results suggest that differences existed between bacterial genera in their ability to evade killing by oyster hemocytes, that a trait(s) associated with the opaque phenotype may have enabled V. parahaemolyticus to evade killing by the oyster's cellular defense, and that bactericidal activity of hemocytes was greater in summer than in winter.  (+info)

Oyster IKK-like protein shares structural and functional properties with its mammalian homologues. (6/495)

In our search for genes involved in oyster immunity we isolated a cDNA encoding a polypeptide closely related to the mammalian IkappaB kinase (IKK) family. IKK proteins play a central role in cell signaling by regulating nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) activation. We report here the cloning of an oyster IKK-like protein (oIKK) which possesses the characteristic organization of the mammalian IKK proteins, namely an amino-terminal kinase domain followed by a leucine zipper region and a carboxyl-terminal helix-loop-helix motif. When transfected into human cell lines, oIKK activated the expression of NF-kappaB-controlled reporter gene, whereas transfections with mutants of oIKK deleted within the kinase domain or within the helix-loop-helix motif respectively abolished and greatly reduced reporter gene activation. These results indicate that oIKK can replace the hIKK-alpha in catalyzing NF-kappaB nuclear translocation, and in triggering gene expression. Our results sustain the concept of an evolutionarily conserved signaling machinery in which IKK plays a major role.  (+info)

Perkinsus marinus extracellular protease modulates survival of Vibrio vulnificus in Eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) hemocytes. (7/495)

The in vitro effects of the Perkinsus marinus serine protease on the intracellular survival of Vibrio vulnificus in oyster hemocytes were examined by using a time-course gentamicin internalization assay. Results showed that protease-treated hemocytes were initially slower to internalize V. vulnificus than untreated hemocytes. After 1 h, the elimination of V. vulnificus by treated hemocytes was significantly suppressed compared with hemocytes infected with invasive and noninvasive controls. Our data suggest that the serine protease produced by P. marinus suppresses the vibriocidal activity of oyster hemocytes to effectively eliminate V. vulnificus, potentially leading to conditions favoring higher numbers of vibrios in oyster tissues.  (+info)

Cryptosporidium parvum in oysters from commercial harvesting sites in the Chesapeake Bay. (8/495)

Oocysts of Cryptosporidium parvum, a zoonotic waterborne pathogen, can be removed by bivalve molluscs from contaminated water and retained on gills and in hemolymph. We identified oocysts of C. parvum in oysters from seven sites in the Chesapeake Bay area. These findings document the presence of C. parvum infectious for humans in oysters intended for human consumption.  (+info)

U.S. oyster growers are strongly concerned about the spread of OsHV-1 microvariants globally. I was part of the team that first detected OsHV-1 in Tomales Bay, California. To date the virus has been detected only in oysters in Tomales Bay and an adjacent bay, and no microvariants have been found yet in U.S. waters. The California OsHV-1 causes mortalities of young Pacific oysters, but is thought to be less virulent than OsHV-1 microvariants.. Given the spread of the OsHV-1 microvariants elsewhere around the world, it may only be a matter of time until they reach U.S. coastal bays or other nonimpacted oyster growing areas. We spent the summer of 2017 conducting experiments in Tomales Bay to determine whether any cultured U.S. oysters species are resistant to OsHV-1, and soon will also conduct laboratory challenges with OsHV-1 microvariants. Once OsHV-1 is established within a bay, mass oyster deaths typically occur each year during the summer when water temperatures are warm. The situation is ...
By Phylis Canion. I love oysters, but do not recall reading an article about them in your column. I recently opened a shell and found a tiny crab. Is that unusual? Is it true that there are certain months to eat oysters? Does the sex of an oyster make a difference? Why do some oysters have a pearl? Guess you can see where I am headed with my questions, so anything you can share would be most appreciated.. Thank you for being such a diligent reader, and you are correct - I have not had an article about oysters. Hope this answers some of your questions.. Oysters are mollusks that breathe much like fish, using both gills and a mantle, which extract oxygen from the water and expel carbon dioxide. Tiny crabs have evolved to live harmoniously inside the oysters shell and are sought after by gourmands around the world although the co-habitating crabs are not abundant. Many years ago, people were advised not to eat oysters in months that did not contain the letter "r." The reason was because these ...
Parasites as an Alternative Model for Lipid Metabolism: Gene Expression Analysis of an Oyster Parasite Perkinsus marinus during Lipid Starvation.. Our laboratory is interested in understanding the regulation of fatty acid biosynthesis in Perkinsus marinus. Previous work has shown that this parasite is capable of synthesizing its own fatty acids, a property that is unique among parasites that usually require the acquisition of certain essential fatty acids from their host. Fatty acid synthesis occurs in the cytosol from Acetyl CoA, which is derived from carbohydrate metabolism via citrate. In the cytosol, citrate can be cleaved into oxaloacetate and Acetyl CoA, or be converted to isocitrate by cytosolic aconitase. We are investigating the role of cytosolic aconitase as a potential branch point in this process, as we have evidence for phosphorylation of this enzyme in favoring citrate production. No one to our knowledge has delineated the role of cytosolic aconitase in fatty acid biosynthesis. We ...

While we had planned to install only 18 of these cages along the Atlantic coast of Florida, my crew wound up installing 70 cages over about six weeks. How did we reach such inflation in the number of cages and amount of digging? Well, it mainly stemmed from my ignorance of this area and the St. Johns River, which happens to dump a lot of sediment around oyster reefs. Because this sediment is deep and flocculent, its dangerous and almost impossible to work in. In fact, I may design a new study to analyze how oyster reefs manage to keep themselves above this ever-growing mud pit. I digress.. Relative to the abundance of these un-workable oyster reefs, mudflat areas suitable for our new experiment (i.e., near oyster reefs and firm footing) are quite rare. It was our luck (for better or worse, as you will soon read), we stumbled upon a sufficiently and suitable mudflat north of Jacksonville. After three days of hard digging, we managed to create large cages ready to support our experimental ...

International Atomic Energy Agency, Marine Environment Laboratories, Principality of Monaco. In the framework of a program focusing on marine resource protection and management in the Caribbean, the objective of this work was to characterize As bioaccumulation in the common edible oyster Crassostrea virginica. Dissolved As (stable As + 73As as a tracer) was taken up according to saturation kinetics for all tested exposure concentrations (2-10 mg l-1), and steady-state was reached rapidly within ~1 week. A slight decrease in uptake efficiency was observed for the higher concentration tested. Whole-body depuration kinetics showed that 73As was lost according to double exponential depuration kinetics that were characterized by short-lived biological half-lives (Tb1/2s) of 0.5-0.9 d and by long-lived Tb1/2l of 8-16 d. No significant difference in 73As retention was found among different initial exposure concentrations of As. Overall, our results indicate that C. virginica bioaccumulates As ...
The protistan parasite Mikrocytos mackini, the causative agent of Denman Island disease in the oyster Crassostrea gigas in British Columbia, Canada, is of wide concern because it can infect other oyster species and because its life cycle, mode of transmission, and origins are unknown. PCR and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) assays were developed for M mackini, the PCR assay was validated against standard histopathological diagnosis, and a preliminary phylogenetic analysis of the M mackini small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU rDNA) was undertaken. A PCR designed specifically not to amplify host DNA generated a 544 bp SSU rDNA fragment from M mackini-infected oysters and enriched M. mackini cell isolates, but not from uninfected control oysters. This fragment was confirmed by FISH to be M mackini SSU rDNA. A M mackini-specific PCR was then designed which detected 3 to 4x more M mackini infections in 1056 wild oysters from Denman Island, British Columbia, than standard histopathology. Mikrocytos
The Fox genes encode a group of transcription factors that contain a forkhead domain, which forms a structure known as a winged helix. These transcription factors play a crucial role in several key biological processes, including development. High-degree identity in the canonical forkhead domain has been used to divide Fox proteins into 23 families (FoxA to FoxS). We surveyed the genome of three spiralians, the oyster Crassostrea gigas, the limpet Lottia gigantea, and the annelid Capitella teleta. We identified 25 C. gigas fox genes, 21 L. gigantea fox genes, and 25 C. teleta fox genes. The C. gigas fox and L. gigantea fox genes represented 19 of the 23 families, whereas FoxI, Q1, R, and S were missing. The majority of the Fox families were observed within the C. teleta fox genes, with the exception of FoxR and S. In addition, the foxAB-like gene, foxY-like gene, and foxH gene were also present in the three genomes. The conserved FoxC-FoxL1 cluster, observed in mammals, was also found in C. ...

ABSTRACT: An ultrastructural study was carried out on Mikrocytos mackini, the cause of Denman Island disease in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas in western Canada. Three forms were identified, quiescent cells (QC), vesicular cells (VC) and endosomal cells (EC). QC occurred in the vesicular connective tissue (VCT), haemocytes (hyalinocytes), adductor and heart myocytes, and extracellularly. They had a central round to ovoid nucleus, ,7 cisternae of inactive nuclear membrane-bound Golgi, few vesicles and lysosome-like bodies. VC were rarely extracellular and usually occurred in adductor and heart myocytes, in close association with host cell mitochondria. The contents of the host cell mitochondria appeared to pass through a tubular extension into the cytoplasm of the parasite.

They had a dilated nuclear membrane, sometimes containing a looped membranous structure ...

Were working on a project with Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Micah Horwith to identify potential proteomic biomarkers in geoduck (Panopea generosa) and Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas). One aspect of the project is how to best conduct sampling of juvenile geoduck (Panopea generosa) and Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) to minimize changes in the proteome of ctenidia tissue during sampling. Generally, live animals are shucked, tissue dissected, and then the tissue is "snap" frozen. However, Micahs crew will be collecting animals from wild sites around Puget Sound and, because of the remote locations and the means of collection, will have limited tools and time to perform this type of sampling. Time is a significant component that will have great impact on proteomic status in each individual.. As such, Micah and crew wanted to try out a different means of sampling that would help preserve the state of the proteome at the time of collection. Micah and crew have collected ...
Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF), a critical member of the basic-helix-loop-helix (bHLH)-containing Per-Arnt-Sim (PAS) protein family, is a master transcription factor involved in maintaining oxygen homeostasis. In the present study, we isolated and characterized a novel bHLH-PAS family member, CgHIFα-like gene, from the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas, and determined its importance during hypoxia stress. The 3020-bp CgHIFα-like cDNA encoded a protein of 888 amino acids. The predicted CgHIFα-like amino acid sequence was conserved in the N-terminal bHLH, PAS, and PAC domains (but not in the C-terminal domain) and was most closely related to the HIF family in the bHLH-PAS protein phylogenic tree ...
In the last decade, a paradigm shift has emerged in comparative immunology. Invertebrates can no longer be considered to be devoid of specific recognition and immune memory. However, we still lack a comprehensive view of these phenomena and their molecular mechanisms across phyla, especially in terms of duration, specificity, and efficiency in a natural context. In this study, we focused on a Lophotrochozoan/virus interaction, as antiviral priming is mostly overlooked in molluscs. Juvenile Crassostrea gigas oysters experience reoccurring mass mortalities events from Ostreid herpes virus 1 with no existing therapeutic treatment. Our results showed that various nucleic acid injections can prime oysters to trigger an antiviral state ultimately protecting them against a subsequent viral infection. Focusing on poly(I:C) as elicitor, we evidenced that it protected from an environmental infection, by mitigating viral replication. That protection seemed to induce a specific antiviral response as poly(I:C) fails

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has today confirmed the detection of Bonamia ostreae in 2 oyster farms on Stewart Island.. Bonamia ostreae is a parasite that can be fatal for flat oysters. It has been in New Zealand since at least 2015 in the Marlborough Sounds and Nelson, but this is the first time it has been found in another area of New Zealand.. There is no food safety issue from eating oysters with Bonamia ostreae. Fresh, good quality New Zealand oysters continue to be safe to eat.. "Bonamia Ostreae is a naturally occurring parasite and is difficult to contain and eradicate as it spreads easily through ocean currents and on vessels," says MPI Biosecurity Surveillance and Incursion Manager Brendan Gould.. "This particular strain of Bonamia has been in New Zealand since at least 2015, however strains have been here since the 1960s and are present in the marine environment.". MPIs priority is determining the extent of the issue and limiting further spread.. Extensive sampling to ...
Oyster extracts have been reported to have many bioactive peptides. But the function of oyster peptides produced by proteolysis is still unknown. In this study, the oligopeptide-enriched hydrolysates from oyster (Crassostrea gigas) were produced using the protease from Bacillus sp. SM98011 at laboratory level, and scaled up to pilot (100 L) and plant (1,000 L) levels with the same conditions. And the antitumor activity and immunostimulating effects of the oyster hydrolysates in BALB/c mice were investigated. The growth of transplantable sarcoma-S180 was obviously inhibited in a dose-dependent manner in BALB/c mice given the oyster hydrolysates. Mice receiving 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/g of body weight by oral gavage had 6.8%, 30.6% and 48% less tumor growth, respectively. Concurrently, the weight coefficients of the thymus and the spleen, the activity of natural killer (NK) cells, the spleen proliferation of lymphocytes and the phagocytic rate of macrophages in S180-bearing mice significantly increased after
Temporal variation in abundance of larvae and spat of the pearl oyster Pinctada imbricata was studied from May 1997 to June 1998 by sampling with bongo nets and harvesting spat from collectors at monthly intervals. Abundances of predators (Cymatium Gastropoda and portunid, xanthid and majiid crabs) were also recorded. A relationship between salinity, particulate organic matter and larvae abundance was observed leading to peaks in abundance of spat on collectors some weeks later. Average catch rates of 10 spat month-1 collector-1, using collectors made of cheap easy accessible materials, indicate that availability of P. imbricata is sufficient to initiate and support aquaculture of this species. Growth and mortality rates of juveniles in three different culture systems at two densities (i.e. 20% and 30%) showed that density within the same culture system had no effect on growth, but that growth differed significantly among the three culture systems. Growth in bag systems was lower than in boxes ...
An OsHV-1 microvariant was first detected in France in 2008, where it killed 80 to 100 percent of affected oyster beds. Since then, similar variants have caused mass mortalities of oysters in many European countries. A 2010 outbreak in England killed over eight million oysters.. OsHV-1 microvariants also infect Pacific oysters in New Zealand and Australia. Their spread in Australia, in particular to Tasmania, has crippled the Australian Pacific oyster aquaculture industry.. Resistance is the best defense. U.S. oyster growers are strongly concerned about the spread of OsHV-1 microvariants globally. I was part of the team that first detected OsHV-1 in Tomales Bay, California. To date the virus has been detected only in oysters in Tomales Bay and an adjacent bay, and no microvariants have been found yet in U.S. waters. The California OsHV-1 causes mortalities of young Pacific oysters, but is thought to be less virulent than OsHV-1 microvariants.. Given the spread of the OsHV-1 microvariants ...

There are no implications for human health. The virus only affects Pacific oysters.. OsHV-1 µvar is a virulent viral disease affecting the Pacific oyster, also known as the rock or cupped oyster. This is the only species of shellfish that is currently known to be susceptible to this virus.. Existing statutory controls for OsHV-1 µVar in the area have been reviewed and the pre-existing control area has been expanded.. Consequently, Confirmed Designation Notice CD07/2015 has been withdrawn and replaced by one new designation notice CD14/2015, which now controls the movements of live Pacific oysters into and out of the area.. You must apply to the Fish Health Inspectorate if you want to move any live Pacific oysters into or out of the designated area.. In addition England and Wales continues to have OsHV-1µVar control areas in Essex and Poole Harbour, Dorset.. ...

ABSTRACT: The pseudolamellibranch is the only main bivalve particle processing system whose mechanisms of pseudofeces rejection on the mantle have not been elucidated. To this end, the entire mantle surface and underlying tissue characteristics were investigated in the oysters Crassostrea virginica and C. gigas, using scanning electron microscopy and histology, as well as observations of particle transport on half-shell preparations. Pseudofeces transport is effected by short simple cilia atop specialized radial ridges, which extend from the gill-mantle junction near the adductor muscle to the mantle edges. The histology of the ridges is characterized by a densely-ciliated pseudostratified epithelium and numerous acid mucopolysaccharide (AMPS)-containing mucocytes, and differs markedly from that of the inter-ridge regions which present a cuboidal epithelium containing few mucocytes and isolated tufts of long simple cilia. In contrast to the pseudofeces transport (infrabranchial) region of the ...
One very controversial suggestion thats been debated for half a century is to introduce a non-native oyster to the bay and see if it can do better than Crassostrea virginica. "Researchers, resource managers, conservationists, and those in the industry are considering whether the risks of such an introduction would outweigh the potential benefits." Clearly, everyones leery of the idea, especially since it appears that the MSX disease was introduced into the Chesapeake as a hitchhiker on a non-native oyster. An editorial in the Fredericksburg (VA) Free Lance-Star described the scale and complexity of the regions problem: The primary lesson, one that has been hammered home as the Chesapeake Bay blue crab numbers have dwindled, is that in order to save the bays creatures, you first have to save the bay -or at least be able to show real signs of progress toward recovery. But oysters are also at the center of the bay recovery conundrum: They have always been the estuarys best natural water ...
Oyster and Clam Genetics. The goal of these projects is to develop and utilize molecular genetic markers for aquaculture species including the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, the hard clam, Mercinaria mercenaria and the Asian oyster Crassostrea ariakensis, which is being considered for introduction into the Chesapeake Bay. The molecular markers are being used for population genetic analyses, genetic tracking of oyster restoration efforts with hatchery reared stocks and examination of the genetic interactions between hatchery stocks and wild populations. In addition, these markers provide molecular markers for genetic maps and information to facilitate breeding programs allowing for rapid development of a wide variety of strains and breeds with the long term goal of genetically improved strains for aquaculture and fishery replenishment ...
This is a review of existing published global/regional strategies to avoid entrance and survival of Ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) in hatchery and nursery systems producing oysters Crassostrea gigas. Author: CJ Rodgers, IRTA
In the United States of America, oyster production is an important component of the seafood economy in many communities in coastal states. The severe impact of disease outbreaks and mass mortality of oyster larvae in hatcheries impacts production, since the oyster industry is largely dependent on hatchery and nursery production. The use of probiotics has been proposed as a potential preventative measure to limit the impact of bacterial diseases in shellfish hatcheries. In previous laboratory studies, the probiotic bacteria Phaeobacter inhibens S4 and Bacillus pumillus RI06-95 improved the survival of eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) larvae against the pathogens Vibrio tubiashii RE22 (now V. coralliilyticus) and Roseovarius crassostreae CV919-312T (now Alliroseovarius crassostreae). The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of candidate probiotics P. inhibens S4 and B. pumillus RI06-95 for disease prevention in shellfish hatcheries. Chapter 1 provides an overview of bacterial disease in

Climate change with increasing temperature and ocean acidification (OA) poses risks for marine ecosystems. According to Pörtner and Farrell [1], synergistic effects of elevated temperature and CO2-induced OA on energy metabolism will narrow the thermal tolerance window of marine ectothermal animals. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effect of an acute temperature rise on energy metabolism of the oyster, Crassostrea gigas chronically exposed to elevated CO2 levels (partial pressure of CO2 in the seawater ~0.15 kPa, seawater pH ~ 7.7). Within one month of incubation at elevated PCO2 and 15 °C hemolymph pH fell (pHe = 7.1 ± 0.2 (CO2-group) vs. 7.6 ± 0.1 (control)) and PeCO2 values in hemolymph increased (0.5 ± 0.2 kPa (CO2-group) vs. 0.2 ± 0.04 kPa (control)). Slightly but significantly elevated bicarbonate concentrations in the hemolymph of CO2-incubated oysters ([HCO-3]e = 1.8 ± 0.3 mM (CO2-group) vs. 1.3 ± 0.1 mM (control)) indicate only minimal regulation of extracellular acid-base

The department has already conducted product trace-backs and embargoed all of the suspect product on Nov. 24 at various local shellfish distributors and restaurants," said Peter Oshiro, "Although this product is not sold directly to the public, a recall has been issued as an additional safeguard to further notify anyone who may possess the product that it is unsafe and should be destroyed.". A product embargo prohibits businesses from using a product suspected of causing illness until a determination is made on the safety of the product. The department received reports of sporadic illnesses (11 total) in September, October, and November of this year that appeared to be linked to the consumption of raw oysters. Samples of the suspect oysters were sent to U.S. Food and Drug Administration Gulf Coast Seafood Laboratory in Alabama for testing, and the samples tested positive for Norovirus. With the positive lab results, DOH has ordered all of the embargoed product held by distributors and ...

The Lynnhaven River was once famous for its oysters. Sadly, after years of disease, pollution and over-harvesting, the rivers oyster population declined to less than 1%. Today, state and local groups are working to grow oysters and replace reefs where they once stood. Most recently, "oyster castles" are providing new places for oysters to grow. Made from crushed oyster shell and concrete, oyster castles resemble Legos interlocking blocks. With 19 blocks per castle, these shoreline structures attract baby oysters and provide ample surfaces to settle down. Oyster castles also provide homes for other animals like fish and blue crabs while protecting adjacent shorelines from erosion. Moreover, oysters help clean our waterways-a single oyster can purify up to 50 gallons of river water every day! Project Green Teens​, Virginia Beachs first environmental group for teens, is raising funds to create an oyster reef​ along the eastern branch of the Lynnhaven River at Great Neck Park. The goal of this ...
Our lab participates in the Gulf of Mexicos OysterSentinel program, tracking the status of the oyster disease called Dermo or Perkinsus marinus. We are responsible for 3 sites in Alabama and 3 sites in Apalachicola Bay, Florida. We work closely with the Alabama Marine Resources Division and the Florida Division of Aquaculture, both to collect and interpret the Oyster Sentinel results. In Apalachicola, these data were especially important in summer 2012 when resource managers were determining the cause of the crash in oyster abundance. Beginning in 2012, we expanded this program to include farmed oysters as well, to provide oyster farmers timely data about the disease status of their oyster crops.. ...

Sydney rock oysters (SRO) Saccostrea glomerata suffer mass mortalities during summer and autumn as a result of infection by a protozoan parasite Marteilia sydneyi (QX disease). Mass selected disease resistant (QXR) lines have been used with some success in affected estuaries in recent years, with resistance attributed to oxidative defense systems. However, the role of hemocytes in resistance to QX by SRO has not been fully explored. In the present study, fifty QXR and fifty wild caught (WC) oysters were collected from a lease at Pimpama River during a QX outbreak in January 2011. Hemocytes characteristics (type, morphology) and functions (mortality, phagocytosis and oxidative activity) from both oyster lines were analyzed by flow cytometry in the context of infection intensity and parasite viability (determined histologically). Amongst the QXR oysters, 20% were diseased containing viable parasite, 74% had killed M. sydneyi and 6% were uninfected. In contrast, 86% of WC oysters were diseased, 2% had
The tolerance of Crassostrea virginica larvae to anoxia increases with developmental stage and body size. Median mortality times range from 11 h for prodissoconch larvae of 82 micro m (shell length) to 51 h for pediveliger larvae of 3 12 micro m, and 150 h for juvenile oysters. Simultaneous calorimetry and respirometry showed that in response to declining oxygen tension (P02), the rates of heat dissipation and oxygen uptake by oyster larvae are maintained independent of PO2 down to low Pc values (2 kPa for prodissoconch larvae and 8 kPa for pediveliger and juveniles). Therefore, total energy metabolism is sustained mainly by aerobic metabolism down to 2 and 4 kPa for early larval stages and juveniles, respectively. Prodissoconch larvae maintain relatively high rates of heat dissipation under anoxic conditions (34% of normoxic rate), whereas pediveliger and juveniles lower their anoxic rates of heat dissipation to 3% of the normoxic rate. The ability to reduce rates of heat dissipation and thus conserve
The Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea virginica, is a critical connection between pelagic and benthic environments for coastal microeukaryotic organisms. Through selective filter feeding on planktonic microeukaryotes, oysters contribute directly to the benthic food source for other organisms by depositing microeukaryotes in feces or pseudofeces to sediments. This role in nutrient cycling provides valuable ecosystem services in promoting biodiversity and clean water, and mitigating eutrophication in coastal waters. However, it is not known whether oysters have a eukaryotic microbiome, or

The cause of mortality events in C. gigas spat and larvae is suspected to be multifactorial, with ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1, in particular OsHV-1 μvar) considered a necessary, but not sufficient, cause. The objectives of the current study were to describe mortality events that occurred in C. gigas in Ireland during the summer of 2011 and to identify any associated environmental, husbandry and oyster endogenous factors. A prospective cohort study was conducted during 2010-2012, involving 80 study batches, located at 24 sites within 17 bays. All 17 bays had previously tested positive for OsHV-1 μvar. All study farmers were initially surveyed to gather relevant data on each study batch, which was then tracked from placement in the bay to first grading. The outcome of interest was cumulative batch-level mortality ( per cent). Environmental data at high and low mortality sites were compared, and a risk factor analysis, using a multiple linear regression mixed effects model, was conducted. ...
Oysters are mother natures aphrodisiac, and easy to prepare. First, start by procuring from a trusted source like a reputable fish market. Next, shuck your oyster with a delicate but simple twist of the wrist. Finally, smell them for freshness, and then its down the hatch. Special guest Todd Mitgang teaches Roger Hailes how to eat oysters the Mansome way.
Its official: The BP oil spill has poisoned the iconic Gulf oyster. And the fallout, according to scientists, could be devastating to the surrounding ecosystem and the people who work the Gulf waters.. A team from the California Academy of Sciences has been studying oysters for two years, both before and after BPs oil reached the shores of Louisiana, Alabama and Florida. The scientists found significantly higher concentrations of chromium, cobalt and vanadium - three heavy metals contained in crude oil - in oysters collected post-spill. That disturbing discovery has scientists concerned about two potential long-term impacts: (1) The toxicity may be passed along to an array of oyster predators such as sea birds, sea anemones, sea stars, crabs, fish and even humans; and (2) The toxicity may inhibit the ability of oysters to reproduce, potentially diminishing their numbers and straining the organisms higher up the food chain that rely on oysters as a food source.. From an April 18 press release ...

The weather today was awesome. We drove north to Point Reyes for freshly shucked oysters at Drakes Oyster Farm. It was a mad drive on snakey Highway 1 to get to the farm before it closed at 4:30 pm. We had spent too much time taking photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. The sky was blue and there was no fog; just perfect if not a little bit too glaring because the sun at 2 to 3 pm was high up in the sky. We raced down the dirt road and nearly slammed into the oyster shack, the clock reading 4:23 pm. However, Yi got sick and threw up so she couldnt eat (but did manage to swallow two oysters later). CY, my uni roomie, was such a sweetheart to drive us more than 2 hours up just for a dozen oysters! On the way back we had more oysters and clams at a restaurant n the food was SO GOOD.

I am an oyster lover, so Pearls was definitely on my to-eat-at list. I assumed that since they were famous, they cared a bit about their product and offered up famous-worthy fare. Unfortunately, the oysters were very small and contained a green slimy rim inside- they dont really clean out the shells. Now there are purists out there that will argue with me about the slime, but as I wasnt sitting right on a dock or boat, it seemed out of place. The soup was decent, bu nothing to write about ...

Excerpt from Jackson et al. 2001: see highlighting on p. 634. This is a fabulous (and sad) paper that reviews many cases of fishing-induced ecosystem collapse. One fascinating part of the paper is that it gives you a feeling for the tremendous diversity and abundance of marine organisms that we had around the US, not too long ago (and… the diversity and abundance that could be restored!). Ive highlighted a really interesting section on oysters. Its easy to underappreciate oysters and the effects of oyster fishing, but this passage (and citations within) are a great place to draw interesting information from. For example, most students would never guess that oysters reefs in Chesapeake Bay were so vast about 100 yrs ago that they probably filtered the "equivalent of the entire water column every 3 days ...

Fred, this is the Wikipedia entry for Brewster. They give short shrift to the most remarkable feature, which is the dramatic tidal shift. Hight tide, theres about 30-50 feet of good sandy beach before the waves. At low tide, a scant 5.5-6 hours later, one can walk straight out for an hour and a half and never get wet above the knees (we do this to surfcast at the edge where the tide turns. Gamefish gather there, but one always runs the risk of getting caught behind the tide). That kind of low tide exposes massive clam beds, identifiable after a good bit of practice. It takes work, and lots of false positives with both the hole identification and heel feel methods, but the clams are always there. The mussels are all over the occasional rocks, jetties, moorings, etc. Most are too small to bother with. The oysters are in a very particular spot that inflicts lots of cuts on ones hands, and usually a few eel encounters to boot ...

A group of Gulf Coast oyster fisheries on Thursday opted out of a $7.8 billion class action settlement of economic and medical claims arising from BP PLC's Deepwater Horizon oil spill and lodged a new suit against the oil giant in Louisiana federal court.
The (Chilean) flat oyster, Ostrea chilensis, is native to New Zealand and the west coast of South America. It is a commercially important species in New Zealand because of its exquisite taste that attracts premium prices. This thesis describes the first isolation and partial charcterisation of an oyster haemolymph calcium-dependent carbohydrate-binding protein. This protein chiletin was originally isolated from oyster haemolymph by binding to the agarose-galactan matrix of a Sepharose column. Chiletin was predominantly composed of a 24 kilodalton (kDa) band when examined with one-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under non-reducing conditions and a 12 kDa band with reduction of disulphide bonds. The N-terminal sequence of the 24 kDa band was determined to be IAGPGWEKYN. This sequence was not homologous to any known protein. Examination of isolated chiletin with two-dimensional protein analysis gel electrophoresis revealed the presence of three (~12 kDa) ...
Oyster mushrooms do not taste like oysters but rather get their name from their resemblance to the shellfish. Oyster mushrooms are among the most abundant of wild mushrooms. They can be found throughout the year, most often on the trunks of dead trees.. Oyster mushrooms are the third largest cultivated mushroom. China, the world leader in Oyster production, contributes nearly 85% of the total world production of about a million tonnes.. Oyster mushrooms are grown in bags of composted sawdust. The bags are sterilized, then inoculated with mushroom spawn (seed) placed inside the bag.. A characteristic of oyster mushrooms is that they have an eccentric (off-centre) stem or sometimes even no stem at all. Oyster mushrooms are very likely the most perishable of mushrooms. They must be kept between 1 and 4 degrees C.. Their colour can vary slightly depending on variety, from pale gray, to light beige, and sometimes pink or yellow. Oyster Mushrooms are similar to the Chanterelle with a more delicate ...
Abstract Gymnophalloides seoi (Digenea: Gymnophallidae), a new human intestinal trematode reported from a Korean woman who complained of epigastric discomfort, has been shown to be highly prevalent among the villagers of a southwestern island of the Republic of Korea. For the detection of human infections, fecal examinations were conducted on the inhabitants of a seashore village, where the first patient with a G. seoi infection had resided. Of 98 inhabitants examined, 70 (71.4%) were infected with various intestinal parasites; among them, G. seoi showed the highest rate of egg positivity 48 of 98 (49.0%). Individual worm burdens of G. seoi, as measured by collection of adult flukes after anthelmintic treatment and purgation, ranged from 106 to 26,373 specimens (average per infected case = 3,326). There was no sex-related difference in the prevalence of G. seoi, and the age distribution of the infected cases showed a relatively even pattern. This study confirms that human infection by G. seoi is not an
The patient, with good past health, has presented with fever, left leg pain and swelling since September 15 and was admitted to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital (PYNEH) on September 17. He is currently in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition.. The clinical diagnosis was left leg NF, with amputation performed on September 17. His blood culture yielded Vibrio vulnificus (VV) upon laboratory testing by PYNEH. VV is a type of bacteria which can cause NF.. The patient has no recent travel history. His home contacts were asymptomatic. Investigations by the CHP are proceeding.. Last week, the CHP reported two other V. vulnificus necrotizing fasciitis cases in women over 70 years of age.. According to the Florida Department of Health, People can get infected with Vibrio vulnificus when they eat raw shellfish, particularly oysters. The bacterium is frequently isolated from oysters and other shellfish in warm coastal waters during the summer months. Since it is naturally found in warm ...
The aim of this study was to detect and quantify Vibrio parahaemolyticus using flow cytometry (FCM) in combination with a polyclonal antibody developed in our laboratory. Experiments were carried out using V. parahaemolyticus cells in pure and mixed bacteria culture suspensions in either artificial or natural seawater. Using FCM, V. parahaemolyticus cells labelled with the polyclonal antibody and a secondary fluorescein isothiocyanate-conjugated antibody were detected and rapidly quantified at low cell densities (103 cells ml-1) in both the pure and mixed cultures. To determine the specificity of our antibody, its crossreactivity with other ATCC bacterial strains and some environmental Vibrio spp. and Gram-positive isolates was also assessed. Significant immunoreactivity levels above background were obtained for V. harvey 64, V. parahaemolyticus 704 and V. alginolyticus 1407, although the intensities were significantly less than for V. parahaemolyticus Conero. The experiments carried out in ...

N2 - A previous investigation using the Fur titration assay system showed that Vibrio parahaemolyticus possesses a gene encoding a protein homologous to IutA, the outer-membrane receptor for ferric aerobactin in Escherichia coli. In this study, a 5.6 kb DNA region from the V. parahaemolyticus WP1 genome was cloned and two entire genes, iutA and alcD homologues, were identified which are absent from Vibrio cholerae genomic sequences. The V. parahaemolyticus IutA and AlcD proteins share 43 % identity with the Escherichia coli IutA protein and 24 % identity with the Bordetella bronchiseptica AlcD protein of unknown function, respectively.
