Distribution patterns of marine bird digenean larvae in periwinkles along the southern coast of the Barents Sea. (1/195)

An important component of the parasite fauna of seabirds in arctic regions are the flukes (Digena). Different species of digeneans have life cycles which may consist of 1 intermediate host and no free-living larval stages, 2 intermediate hosts and 1 free-living stage, or 2 intermediate hosts and 2 free-living larval stages. This study examined the distribution of such parasites in the intertidal zones of the southern coast of the Barents Sea (northwestern Russia and northern Norway) by investigating 2 species of periwinkles (Littorina saxatilis and L. obtusata) which are intermediate hosts of many species of digeneans. A total of 26,020 snails from 134 sampling stations were collected. The study area was divided into 5 regions, and the number of species, frequency of occurrence and prevalence of different digenean species and groups of species (depending on life cycle complexity) were compared among these regions, statistically controlling for environmental exposure. We found 14 species of digeneans, of which 13 have marine birds as final hosts. The number of species per sampling station increased westwards, and was higher on the Norwegian coast than on the Russian coast. The frequency of occurrence of digeneans with more than 1 intermediate host increased westwards, making up a larger proportion of the digeneans among infected snails. This was significant in L. saxatilis. The prevalence of different species showed the same pattern, and significantly more snails of both species were infected with digeneans with complicated life cycles in the western regions. In L. saxatilis, environmental exposure had a statistically significant effect on the distribution of the most common digenean species. This was less obvious in L. obtusata. The causes of changing species composition between regions are probably (1) the harsh climate in the eastern part of the study area reducing the probability of successful transmission of digeneans with complicated life cycles, and (2) the distribution of different final hosts.  (+info)

First record of Emetha audouini, a cymothoid isopod parasite, from cultured sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax in Greece. (2/195)

For the first time, Emetha audouini (Milne Edwards, 1840), a cymothoid isopod, is reported parasitising cage cultured sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax L., 1758 in Greece. The specimens observed are larvae (Pulli II). They were found in great numbers in the buccal and branchial cavity of young (3.5 m.o. old) sea bass, in an intensive cage farm facility. This parasite is certainly transferred to sea bass from wild populations of Sparidae or Centracanthidae. Serious lesions were visible and typical of a crustacean infection, with extensive and deep skin damage in the head area. The cumulative mortality, over a 2 wk period, was 10.75%. The parasitic problem was successfully dealt with by optimization of management practices rather than use of costly and dangerous chemotherapeutants.  (+info)

A survey of some parasites and diseases of several species of bivalve mollusc in northern Western Australia. (3/195)

Pteriid oysters (Pinctada maxima, Pinctada margaritifera, Pinctada albina, Pteria penguin), rock oysters (Saccostrea glomerata, Saccostrea cuccullata, Saccostrea echinata) and representatives of other taxa (Malleidae, Isognomonidae, Pinnidae, Mytilidae, Spondylidae, Arcidae) from the wild, and 4670 hatchery-reared P. maxima, from northern and Western Australia, were examined for parasites and diseases. Rickettsiales-like inclusions and metacestodes of Tylocephalum occurred in most species. Intranuclear virus-like inclusions occurred in 1/415 wild P. maxima, 1/1254 S. cuccullata, 3/58 Isognomon isognomum, 1/80 Pinna bicolor and 1/45 Pinna deltodes. Perkinsus was histologically observed in 1/4670 P. maxima spat, 2/469 P. albina, 1/933 S. glomerata, 16/20 Malleus meridianus, 12/58 I. isognomum, 1/45 P. deltodes, 5/12 Spondylus sp., 1/16 Septifer bilocularis and 3/6 Barbatia helblingii. One of 1254 S. cuccullata was heavily systematically infected with Perkinsus merozoites, meronts and schizonts, and was patently diseased. Other potentially serious pathogens included Haplosporidium sp. in 6/4670 P. maxima spat, Marteilia sydneyi from 1/933 S. glomerata, and Marteilia sp. (probably M. lengehi) (1/1254) and Haplosporidium sp. (125/1254) from S. cuccullata. The latter were associated with epizootics on offshore islands, with heaviest prevalence (45%) in oysters with empty gonad follicles. Marteilioides sp. infected the oocytes of 9/10 female S. echinata from Darwin Harbour. Details of geographical distribution and pathology are given, and the health of the bivalves examined is discussed.  (+info)

Conservation of sequence in the internal transcribed spacers and 5.8S ribosomal RNA among geographically separated isolates of parasitic scuticociliates (Ciliophora, Orchitophryidae). (4/195)

Nucleotide sequence from the internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) and the 5.8S gene from the ribosomal RNA gene cluster of isolates of the scuticociliate Orchitophrya stellarum from 4 asteroid hosts were compared. Surprisingly, these data (495 bp) were identical for O. stellarum isolated from the testes of Asterias amurensis from Japan; Pisaster ochraceus from British Columbia, Canada; Asterias rubens from The Netherlands; and Asterias vulgaris from Prince Edward Island, Canada. These sequence data were compared to those from 3 scuticociliates which parasitise crustaceans: Mesanophrys pugettensis, M. chesapeakensis and Anophryoides haemophila. No difference was found in this region between the nucleotide sequence of M. pugettensis and M. chesapeakensis. The sequence of Mesanophrys spp. differed by 9.2% in the ITS1 and 4.7% in the ITS2 from that of O. stellarum. The sequence from the ITS1 (135 bp) and ITS2 (233 bp) of A. haemophila differed by 42.6 and 20.5% respectively from those of O. stellarum. Therefore, nucleotide sequence of the ITS regions in these scuticociliates is highly conserved.  (+info)

Lassa virus infection in Mastomys natalensis in Sierra Leone. Gross and microscopic findings in infected and uninfected animals. (5/195)

Pathological examinations of 28 wild-caught Mastomys natalensis from Sierra Leone, 14 of which were positive for Lassa virus by tissue culture, are reported. The high frequency of neoplastic and degenerative diseases observed among older animals in closed colonies of M. natalensis were not observed in the wild animals studied. This is probably a reflection of the age distribution of the study population, since the life expectancy of wild Mastomys is less than a year. Inflammatory lesions were nonetheless identified, some of which were similar to those described in laboratory colonies. Frequent lesions were myocarditis (54%), myositis (32%), interstitial pneumonitis (50%), intercapillary glomerulosclerosis (36%), and acute nephrosis (14%). Follicular and nodular lymphoid hyperplasia were evident in the spleen (74%) and Peyer's patches (64%). Lymphoid cell accumulations were prominent in the salivary glands (36%), periportal hepatic region (25%), lungs (32%), perivascular regions (36%), and kidney (21%). Cytomegalic inclusion body sialoadenitis was common (25%). Coccidiosis was evident in the intestinal tract (25%), kidney (25%), and muscle (21%). One neoplasm, a parahepatic haemangioma, was observed histologically.Mean body weights and lengths for virus-positive animals (33 g and 9.2 cm) and virus-negative animals (54 g and 12.2 cm) showed that virus-positive animals were smaller in weight and shorter in length. Since the age of the animals could not be determined, these differences remain unexplained.In comparison with virus-negative animals, virus-positive Mastomys had higher frequencies of splenic follicular hyperplasia (82% against 50%), myocarditis (79% against 29%), perivascular lymphoid cell accumulation (57% against 7%), myositis (50% against 14%), and cytomegalic inclusion body sialoadenitis (36% against 14%). The frequency of lymphoid hyperplasia of Peyer's patches was high in both groups of animals (71% and 57%).The presence of Lassa virus, small size, myocarditis, and lymphoid perivasculitis appeared to be interrelated, but larger and better controlled studies are required to elucidate the relationship.  (+info)

Mammalian metabolism, longevity and parasite species richness. (6/195)

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) scales allometrically with body mass in mammals, but the reasons why some species have higher or lower metabolic rates than predicted from their body mass remain unclear. We tested the idea that parasite species richness may be a contributory factor by performing a comparative analysis on 23 species of mammals for which data were available on parasite species richness, BMR, body mass and two potentially confounding variables, i.e. host density and host longevity. Parasite species richness was positively correlated with BMR and negatively correlated with host longevity independent of body mass.  (+info)

Cebus apella (Primata: Cebidae) as a new host for Fonsecalges johnjadini (Acari: Psoroptidae, Cebalginae) with a description of anatomopathological aspects. (7/195)

Mites collected from the auditory canal of Cebus apella (capuchin monkey), family Cebidae, were identified as Fonsecalges johnjadini (Psoroptidae, Cebalginae). It is the first record of this parasite from this monkey. This paper emphasizes the importance of clinical and anatomopathological examinations for parasitic diagnosis in wild animals.  (+info)

Long-term monitoring on the occurrence of a myxosporean parasite Kudoa camarguensis (Myxosporean) on the common goby (Teleostei, pisces) Pomatoschistus microps. (8/195)

The evolution of a host-parasite system composed of Pomatoschistus microps-Kudoa camarguensis was investigated in the Vaccares lagoon (Rhjne river Delta, France) from 1993 to 1997. During this long-term monitoring, centennial flooding of the Rhjne river occurred, leading to an inrush of about 110 million m3 of freshwater in the Vaccares lagoon. The salinity drastically dropped from 14 to 5 g l(-1) in 1 wk. We observed that the annual prevalence and abundance of the myxosporean parasite decreased from 12.18 in 1993 to 3.7% in 1997 and from 1.10 in 1993 to 0.27 in 1997, respectively. Here, we discuss the possible reasons for the rapid decline of this host-parasite system following the flood.  (+info)

Can you believe this? It is estimated that 85% of Americans have an internal parasite problem! (1). Parasites are organisms that live in or on a host organism. They gain an advantage at the expense of the host. Internal parasites live inside the body and feed off of food or blood. Worms, coccidia, and blood parasites are all types of internal parasites. They come in many different shapes and sizes and can cause numerous health problems when left untreated. For example, some consume your food, leaving you hungry and unable to gain weight. Others feed off of your red blood cells and cause anemia. Some lay eggs and cause itching, irritability, and insomnia. (2) ...

Data are presented on the last 3 years of a 7-year study (1989-1995) on transmission of natural infections of internal parasites in horse foals (n = 27) born in 1993, 1994, and 1995 on the same pasture on a farm in central Kentucky. The foals were in a closed breeding herd of horses. Research on the first 4 years (1989-1992) of the study was published earlier (Lyons et al., 1991, 1994). Thirty-five species of endoparasites were identified, including 24 species of small strongyles. Monthly, seasonal, and host-age transmission patterns were elucidated for the parasites. Comparison of data between the first 4 years and last 3 years of the study indicates similarities, but also differences, including an increase in prevalence and numbers of Thelazia lacrymalis and Anoplocephala perfoliata.
Potential impact on humans: Zero, because the coccidia species found in dogs, as well as in cats, does not infect humans.. As indicated, both you and your dog could be targeted by one or more parasites in your lifetimes. But fear not. A one-two-three punch could knock this dog and human health problem out cold.. Keeping It Clean Staying clean is the first line of attack for preventing most internal parasite infestations. Be sure to clean up after your dog as soon as you can. Then, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after such cleanups in order to prevent possible parasite spreads to other dogs, animals and humans. Children are at special risk, since they tend to not be as vigilant with the washing (little fingers have a tendency to wind up in little mouths). As a result, keep kids away from any pets that may be infected. Teach them the link between illness and hand-dirtiness. Maybe remind them of their last tummy ache, pointing out that something similar could happen if they ...

Before I go on to explain some of these potential problems, I must reiterate the importance of good husbandry and maintaining a preventive maintenance schedule for your birds. Many of the below issues can be avoided if cage, food & watering devices are kept clean (not sterile - clean), and the birds are proactively treated to prevent internal parasites. If you are unsure of your ability to determine the overall health and wellness of your birds, please take them to an Avian Veterinarian for diagnosis before medicating!

There are five key parasites that pose a threat to your dogs health: fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms (A. caninum) and whipworms. What people commonly refer to as worms are really internal parasites that live in the heart or intestinal tract of the host animal. Many internal parasites can be life-threatening to your dog, and most people dont realize that some of these parasites can be transferred from pets to humans, which is known as zoonosis. Children are especially susceptible to zoonotic infection because they are always grabbing, touching and sticking their hands in their mouths without regard to whether they are clean. People also dont realize just how prevalent internal parasites are. A national survey of veterinarians showed that more than one out of three dogs (36 percent) was infected by one or more of the three most common gastrointestinal nematodes - whipworms, roundworms and hookworms. Heartworms are also a serious year-round threat. More than 27 million dogs in the ...

Roundworms (nematodes) are common in poultry, waterfowl, and wild birds. Species of roundworms that affect poultry include species of large roundworms (Ascaris sp., also known as ascarids), species of small roundworms (Capillaria sp., also known as capillary worms or threadworms), and cecal worms (Heterakis gallinarum). Roundworms can cause significant damage to the organ(s) they infest. Most roundworms affect the digestive tract; others affect the trachea (windpipe) or eyes.. Large roundworms are the most damaging of the worms common to backyard flocks. A severe infestation can cause a reduction in nutrient absorption, intestinal blockage, and death. Easily seen with the naked eye, large roundworms are about the thickness of a pencil lead and grow to 4-1/2 inches long. Occasionally, they migrate up a hens reproductive tract and become included in a developing egg. The life cycle of a roundworm is direct; that is, worm eggs are passed in the droppings of infected birds and then directly to ...

Most hogs have Ascaris infections during their lifetimes. These roundworms are usually found in greatest numbers in pigs up to 2 to 3 months of age with a few in older pigs. Sows usually are not clinically affected, but serve as carriers. Roundworms are long (6 to 12 inches), stout, pinkish worms, sometimes with curved tails. The adults live in the small intestine, grazing on the gut lining and ingesting particulate and liquid materials from digesting food.. The adult females deposit round, microscopic eggs. Each female lays thousands per day beginning about two months after the pig becomes infected. Eggs may survive for 10 or more years and are quite resistant to cold and disinfectants. They can be destroyed by high-pressure steam heat and sunlight. Because they are sticky, eggs are easily transported by cockroaches, beetles, flies, birds and workers boots and clothing.. Eggs become infective after being outside the pig for one month. When another pig swallows them, they hatch in the stomach ...
This is a rough time of year for our lambs; not only have most gone through the weaning process (the rest will this Saturday), but this is also one of the worst times of year for internal parasites and flies. It must seem like they are under attack from all sides - quite literally, from inside and out!. I am carefully watching and trying to limit their exposure. They will not develop resistance or resilience in the face of internal parasites unless challenged by them. Yet if the challenge is too great, we face loss of life. I want them to be challenged, but I must control the onslaught; some is good, but too much can be fatal.. I watch the flock carefully to monitor which lambs need deworming and which are able to handle the load for a longer period - or continue to handle it without a dose of dewormer. If their digestive system begins to break down because of a heavy parasite load, dewormer is not enough. I must also trim the soiled wool from around their tails to prevent the second attack: ...
A mature worm lays its eggs in the intestines where they can be passed in the cats feces. Once out in the environment the eggs mature into larvae and infect new cats. Rodents also carry these larvae in their tissues - infecting cats, which are hunting. Roundworms can cause disease in people, especially those with weaker immune systems. It is rare, but if there are numbers of larvae in the environment and they are ingested, they can migrate around human tissues trying to find a good place to settle, causing serious health problems.. Hookworms: Cats can be infected with hookworm larvae when they burrow through their skin - usually the paw pads. Infestation also occurs when a cat eats a rodent that is carrying hookworms in its tissues. These worms are about 1/2-inch in length and live in the intestines. Young worms burrow into the lining of the intestine, whereas adult worms use their hooked mouthparts to anchor into the intestinal lining where they suck blood. Heavy hookworm infection can cause ...

Cheers, Neale.,. Figure 8 puffers w/ possible ich problems 11-8-08 Hi, We have 2 figure eight puffers in a 29 gallon tank and have had them in there for about 3 weeks or so. We have been feeding them a good and varied diet of shell-on-shrimp, frozen krill, crab and clams. ,Hello! Keep up the great work on the variation of their diet., The tank has been up and running for about 3 months now and it seems to be fully cycled. Current parameters: 0 NH3, 0 nitrite, ~5 nitrate, pH 8.2 and we havent had any problems with the ammonia or nitrites in about 2 months now. Prior to have these two puffers, we had one figure eight that we lost to internal parasites which we tried to treat too late. The salinity is 1.004-1.005 and we have been slowly stepping it up. We do regular weekly water changes of ~40-50%, using Prime as a dechlorinator. Both figure eights were so healthy, have great appetites, bright white full bellies, pooping nice and solid brown (no evidence of internal parasites) with their bellies ...

Internal parasites are silent killers. They can cause extensive internal damage, and you may not even realize your horses are heavily infected. At the very least, parasites can lower resistance, rob the horse of valuable nutrients, and cause gastrointestinal irritation and unthriftiness. At their worst, they can lead to colic, intestinal ruptures, and death. Using deworming agents on a regular schedule in combination with good management procedures is critical to relieving your horse of most parasites. Since parasites are primarily transferred through manure, good management is key. In terms of management priorities, establishing a parasite control program is probably second only to supplying the horse with clean, plentiful water and high quality feed. To get rid of parasites before they attack your horse, follow these suggestions from ...
Internal parasites can be a major problem for producers. With parasites developing resistance to all dewormers and more farmers producing livestock by natural methods, there is interest in looking for alternative ways to managing parasite problems.
Most people are infected with at least one internal parasite. Unfortunately, most are undiagnosed and even do not know that they are carrying one or more parasites in their bodies. Humans contract parasites in several ways, including eating uncooked foods like meat and fish, walking barefooted, and sharing a bed with a pet carrying them. Although the mention of parasites makes people think of the obvious ones like tapeworms, roundworms, and others, many others are microscopic like amoeba, spirochetes, and flukes.. Due to the common infection with parasites, it is critical to use parasite cleansing supplements like zoiben, which also helps with biofilms infections and other benefits. The supplement is constituted of six different essential oils and berberine, the bitter herb extract. These ingredients are all useful for eliminating parasites but are not toxic to humans.. Here are some natural remedies for intestinal parasites:. ...

Molly Sharlach, Princeton University. In the first evidence that natural selection favors an individuals infection tolerance, researchers from Princeton University and the University of Edinburgh have found that an animals ability to endure an internal parasite strongly influences its reproductive success. Reported in the journal PLoS Biology, the finding could provide the groundwork for boosting the resilience of humans and livestock to infection.. The researchers used 25 years of data on a population of wild sheep living on an island in northwest Scotland to assess the evolutionary importance of infection tolerance. They first examined the relationship between each sheeps body weight and its level of infection with nematodes, tiny parasitic worms that thrive in the gastrointestinal tract of sheep. The level of infection was determined by the number of nematode eggs per gram of the animals feces.. While all of the animals lost weight as a result of nematode infection, the degree of weight ...

Ticks are an external parasite that attach to the dogs skin. They continuously feed on the blood. The ticks will remain attached to the skin and will grow in size due to becoming engorged with blood. They are usually brown or gray but the color may change as the parasite feeds and grows.. Ticks are found anywhere in the outdoors. If you take your dog on long walks in the woods or rural areas, there is a higher chance he will pick up ticks along the way. If you have a number of trees and bushes in your back yard, your pet may be at risk for getting these pests on your own property. Unfortunately, dogs are outdoor animals and there is always the risk of getting external and internal parasites. There are pest control companies that will provide tick treatment for your outdoor areas if this is a problem.. ...
The risk of infection is widespread. It is estimated that more than 90% of all Americans are infected with some type of harmful organism. Infection can come from benign activities like eating at a restaurant, owning a pet, or having a child in school or daycare. Food handlers can spread parasites through unsafe or unclean practices. Pets can pick up parasites from insect bites and introduce them into the home. The undeveloped hand washing skills and curiosity of children usually leads to lots of indirect contact with every type of infectious agent. Soldiers, travelers and workers returning from overseas often bring internal parasites with them as a result of eating or drinking contaminated food in other countries. Plumbers, sanitation engineers, and outdoor workers are also more likely to come into contact with harmful organisms ...

Dung Diptera can be beneficial to the environment because the adults feed on, deposit eggs in, and the larval nutrition depends on the feaces of animals which significantly im-proves nutrient cycling. However, anthelmintics which are used to control internal parasites have long persistence with a long half-life in faeces. This is harmful to the coprofauna and may adversely affect the diversity of this environmen-tal system. In this study we evaluated the toxicity of moxidectin anthelmintic on the dung Diptera population in pastures of South of Brazil.
The young lamb before and immediately after weaning is most vulnerable. It needs to develop immunity as soon as possible at a time when there is a high demand for nutrients for growth.

Marine fish species exhibit low capacity to biosynthesise highly unsaturated fatty acid (HUFA) in comparison to strict freshwater and anadromous species. It is admitted that the Delta(6) desaturase (FADS2) is a key enzyme in the HUFA biosynthetic pathway. We investigated by quantitative PCR the relative amounts of FADS2 mRNA in European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) in comparison with a salmonid species, the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss L.). The analysis of the expression data was performed regarding the difference of the characteristics of a critical fragment of the fads2 gene promoter between sea bass and Atlantic salmon. The lower level of fads2 gene expression observed in sea bass suggested that fads2 gene putative promoter, which exhibited an E-box like Sterol Regulatory Element (SRE) site but lacked a Sp1 site, is less active in this marine species. The cytosine methylation of CpG sites in the putative promoter region including E-box like SRE and NF-Y binding sites of sea bass fads2 gene

The environmental information an organism receives during early development is integrated through epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation. The gene expression or the ability to respond to environmental factors experienced later in life may be altered by this process. We have focused our studies on two types of environmental factors that confer changes in DNA methylation: temperature and farming conditions. First, we studied temperature effects on DNA methylation of the aromatase promoter, the enzyme that converts androgens into estrogens and is essential for ovarian development, in 1-year old sea bass. We showed that males had higher DNA methylation levels than females and that high temperature led to increased DNA methylation levels in females, leading a portion of them to differentiate into males. Next, we applied eight different temperature treatments on sea bass larvae and used the Methylation Sensitive Amplified Polymorphism (MSAP) technique to detect global changes in DNA ...

In order to get tapeworms, an intermediate host, the flea or certain species of rodent is required. In other words, your dog cannot get tapeworms directly from another dog or a cat.. Dipylidium caninum, the most common tapeworm of the dog, causes few problems in the adult host but can result in digestive upsets and stunting of growth in puppies. The intermediate host of Dipylidium is the flea.. Taenia species of tapeworms usually infect adult dogs and cause few problems. Puppies are occasionally infected and, depending on the type of worm involved, the large number of worms can cause intestinal blockage. The intermediate host for Taenia species is small mammals such as rodents or rabbits.. Echinococcus, another type of tapeworm, is important because it is zoonotic, meaning humans can be infected. The adult tapeworm is tiny, only about ¼ (5-6 mm) long. Sheep and sometimes man can act as the intermediate hosts in which the immature forms of Echinococcus develop inside hyadatic cysts in various ...

I went to a very interesting talk on internal parasites in goats on Tuesday evening at the Seattle Farm Coop. It was given by Susan Kerr, DVM, Ph.D., and NW Regional Livestock and Dairy Extension Specialist.. Internal parasites give me the heeby jeebies. I am going to spare you some of the electron microscope close ups of these nasty blood suckers.. The main takeaway from this lecture for me was that people with goats who have a wood chip floor in their goat yard instead of lovely grass, do not have to worry too much about the parasites now plaguing goats across the nation, barber pole worms (Haemonchus Contortus). The lifecycle of these nasty worms depends on their being eaten by a goat when they are in the state of development that finds them relaxing in dew drops on grass no higher than 3 inches from the ground. No grass with dew drops for them to lounge about in, no chance for them to make their way into goats. Ha! In my book, City Goats, I recommend automatically worming goats after they ...

A variety of parasites have been recorded from the marsh rice rat (Oryzomys palustris), a semiaquatic rodent found in the eastern and southern United States, north to New Jersey and Kansas and south to Florida and Texas, and in Tamaulipas, far northeastern Mexico.[1] Some of these parasites are endoparasites, internal parasites, while others are ectoparasites, external parasites.[2]. Parasitologist John Kinsella compared the endoparasites of marsh rice rats in a saltwater marsh at Cedar Key and a freshwater marsh at Paynes Prairie, both in Florida, in a 1988 study. He found a total of 45 species, a number unequaled in rodents.[3] This may be related to the diverse habitats the rice rat uses and to its omnivorous diet; it eats a variety of animals which may serve as intermediate hosts of various parasites. The endoparasites in the saltwater marsh were dominated by trematodes (flukes), and those of the freshwater marsh by nematodes (roundworms).[3] Endoparasites were found in the gastric mucosa ...
The effect of gutting and filleting on the formation of biogenic amines and its relation to microbiological and sensory attributes in ice-stored sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) was studied. Pseudomonads, H2S-producing bacteria, Brochothrix thermosphacta and to a lesser extent Enterobacteriaceae were the dominant micro-organisms in whole, gutted and filleted sea bass. Higher populations (P,0.05) of these micro-organisms were present in filleted sea bass as compared to gutted and whole fish samples. Seven biogenic amines namely: putrescine, cadaverine, spermidine, tyramine, tryptamine, spermine and histamine were determined in fish samples. Putrescine was the main biogenic amine formed. Its highest value (23.86 mg/kg) was recorded in filleted sea bass on day 16 of storage. Respective putrescine values for gutted and whole sea bass were 12.64 and 3.12 mg/kg (day 16). Putrescine levels of whole, gutted and filleted sea bass showed a steep increase between days 11 and 16 of storage when respective ...
Due to the paucity of oceanic resources utilized in the preparation of diets for cultured fish, commercial feed producers have been trying to replace fishmeal (FM) using alternative protein sources such as vegetable protein meals (VMs). One of the main drawbacks of using VMs in fish feed is related to the presence of a variety of anti-nutritional factors, which could trigger an inflammation process in the distal intestine. This reduces the capacity of the enterocytes to absorb nutrients leading to reduced fish growth performances. We evaluated the mitigating effects of butyrate and taurine used as feed additives on the morphological abnormalities caused by a soybean meal (SBM)-based diet in the distal intestine of sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax). We used three experimental diets, containing the same low percentage of FM and high percentage of SBM; two diets were supplemented with either 0.2% sodium butyrate or taurine. Histological changes in the intestine of fish were determined by light and
The extent to which fish species can produce highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) from C18 fatty acids varies with their complement of fatty acyl desaturase (FAD) enzymes. Marine fish are unable to produce HUFA at a significant rate due to apparent deficiencies in one or more enzymatic steps in the desaturation/ elongation pathway. It is not known if this is due to a lack of the genes or to tight regulation of the enzymatic activity in some of the transformation steps. In the present study, we report molecular cloning, cDNA, protein and functional analysis of a Δ6 FAD of European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.), and describe its tissue expression and nutritional regulation. An FAD cDNA contig sequence from brain tissue of sea bass was obtained by gene walking, and full-length cDNA was obtained by amplification using 5′end forward and 3′ end reversed primers. The full length of the sea bass FAD cDNA was 2089 bp, which included a 5′-UTR (untranslated region) of 267 bp, a 3′-UTR of 484 ...

Pets are a part of our families, and preventing parasite infestations is an important part of keeping them healthy. Both ectoparasites (external parasites) and endoparasites (internal parasites) can affect your pet at some point in their life. Ectoparasites, such as fleas and ticks, are not only a nuisance to your pet, but can transmit vector-borne diseases to humans and pets such as Bartonella (cat scratch disease, transmitted by fleas); Lyme, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever. Fleas can also cause a severe dermatologic condition for your pet resulting in very itchy, inflamed skin, due to flea allergy dermatitis.. Roundworms are the most prevalent endoparasite in pets. Others include hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. Pets are typically infected with these parasites through accidental ingestion of parasite eggs (which are microscopic) from areas that have fecal contamination from other infected animals. Alternatively, some parasites are acquired through ingestion of ...

Mark Marten. Photo courtesy of Marten. To understand how the fungal cell walls respond to environmental stressors, Marten and his team studied what he describes as the cells software-rules that control how the cell behaves. When fungi experience stress, Martens team found an increase in the number of septa created. Like bulkheads in a ship, septa prevent catastrophic loss of cellular cytoplasm if theres a break in the cell wall. When you stress cells, they sense it and try to protect themselves, Marten explains. He adds that fungi try to repair damage to their cell walls so that they can resume normal growth and function. The study used a multi-omic methodology, which researchers say can be applied to studying how signaling networks in cells work in general. The methodology allowed researchers to get a more detailed understanding of how cells respond to stressors. They found that when cell walls experience stress, there is a coordinated response through various pathways. By combining ...

The aim of the present study was to induced breeding of H. molitrix and to observe gonads maturation after the injections with the synthetic hormone Nerestin. Males and females of H. molitrix were provided from the Cârja farm 1-from Vaslui county. All the breedings were injected with Nerestin 1, the females received two doses of 20%, respectively 80% of the total dose, within 24 hours, and the males received only the two doses representing 1/3 and 2/3 of the dose total administered to females. For histological examination, oocyte samples were collected from adult H. molitrix females. The sampling periods overlapped with the maturation period after the vitellogenesis (April-May 2016) and ovulation, which took place in June 2016. The ovulation process is determined by internal factors and assured by the normal development of the body; in the case of induced breeding is triggered by the administered gonadotrophic stimulants. Our results showed that in order to obtain good quality eggs a great ...

Common conditions of pet snakes include infectious stomatitis, parasites, skin infections, inclusion body disease, respiratory disease, and septicemia. Infectious stomatitis may not be a primary disease but may be secondary to an injury to the mouth or to husbandry issues such as poor nutrition, improper environmental temperature or humidity, or overcrowding. Both internal parasites and external parasites may cause diarrhea, breathing difficulties, regurgitation, swelling of internal organs, itching, skin irritation, anemia, mouth infection, and weight loss. Cryptosporidiosis can cause thickening of the stomach muscles, impaired digestion, vomiting, and weight loss. Dermatitis is often seen in snakes kept in environments that are too moist and/or dirty. Inclusion body disease is a serious viral disease in which affected snakes cannot right themselves when placed on their backs, may appear to be star gazing, and may be paralyzed. Most respiratory infections in snakes are caused by bacteria but ...

November is also the best time to consider internal and external parasites. Both of these can reduce the quality of the feathers and will cause the bird to consume more calories to stay in good shape. There are some good wormers on the market for poultry, but if you dont have access to these you can use an old method that was once sanctified by the U.S. Army (circa World War II), that of dropping walnuts with husks still on (preferably green husks) into buckets of water and allow to stand overnight. You use one walnut per gallon, though you can put in two or three walnuts and then add one or two more gallons of fresh water when you feed it out. This feedout a few times weekly will rid your poultry of internal parasites. For external parasites, I recommend adding wood ashes to the areas your chickens choose for dust bathing. This should be mixed in the soil a little bit so that it does not blow away. Dont worry when your chickens eat some of the charcoal in the ashes - it is a natural ...

TREATMENT: Treatment will consist of either medications or surgery, depending on the cause of anemia.. If the anemia is life threatening, your dog will need an immediate blood transfusion, which will temporarily stabilize them. This allows your veterinarian to determine the cause of the anemia, and begin the appropriate treatment.. PREVENTION:. There are a variety of causes for anemia, and most of them are preventable. The best thing to do is to ensure your dog is up to date on all preventives, especially for fleas, ticks and internal parasites.. PROGNOSIS:. The prognosis depends on the medical problem that is causing the anemia. If you catch the anemia early and your dog is in overall good health, there is a good prognosis for recovery.Sometimes, a more severe disease, such as cancer, causes anemia, and it could be life threatening.. ...
