Potentially toxic filamentous fungi associated to the economically important Nodipecten nodosus (Linnaeus, 1758) scallop farmed in southeastern Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Numerous countries have been confronted with infectious diseases in mariculture activities, including fungi infections, although reports in scallops are scarce. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the occurrence of filamentous fungi in Nodipecten nodosus specimens from three marine farms in Southeastern Brazil. Eight fungi genera were observed in the branchial arches, intestine and muscle tissue … Continue reading Potentially toxic filamentous fungi associated to the economically important Nodipecten nodosus (Linnaeus, 1758) scallop farmed in southeastern Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Effets apoptotiques du dinoflagellé Alexandrium catenella et de ses toxines sur les cellules immunitaires de l’huître creuse Crassostrea gigas. Implications dans la susceptibilité de l’huître aux vibrioses [french thesis]

In France, oyster sites in the Mediterranean Sea are regularly confronted to high mortalities of Crassostrea gigas juveniles and to recurrent blooms of the dinoflagellate producer of Paralytic Shellfish Toxins (PSTs), Alexandrium catenella. Among the Pathogens associated to these mortalities, we found Vibrio strains belonging to Splendidus clade. We here focus on the interactions between … Continue reading Effets apoptotiques du dinoflagellé Alexandrium catenella et de ses toxines sur les cellules immunitaires de l’huître creuse Crassostrea gigas.
