pronephric leucocytes of cyprinus carpio: isolation, separation and characterization.since the teleost pronephros is an important source of diverse immunocytes, suspensions of pronephric cells from young adult carp have been characterized. in freshly prepared suspensions, adherent, spreading cells (macrophages?) constituted less than 3% of the total population. granulocytes and lymphocytes were co-dominant (less than 80%) leucocyte types. continuous percoll density gradient centrifugation yielded discrete subpopulations with these rho values and cytological characteristics: frac ...19863765337
interaction between aeromonas salmonicida and peritoneal macrophages of brook trout (salvelinus fontinalis).the phagocytic and bactericidal properties of peritoneal macrophages obtained from brook trout (salvelinus fontinalis), injected with either glycogen or a modified freund's complete adjuvant (mfca), were evaluated against an avirulent and a virulent strain of aeromonas salmonicida. avirulent bacteria were effectively phagocytized and killed by macrophages obtained from fish injected with both irritants. with glycogen-elicited macrophages, no enhancement of killing was observed following opsoniza ...19863765344
effects of metals on the chemiluminescent response of rainbow trout (salmo gairdneri) phagocytes.quantification of an induced chemiluminescent (cl) response in phagocytes is currently being evaluated as an indicator system for determining those environmental pollutants that may predispose fish to disease. a cl assay was developed using phagocytes from the pronephros of rainbow trout (salmo gairdneri). the cl response of phagocytes to phorbol myristate acetate, a chemical inducer of cl, was shown to be dose-dependent. the response to five species of bacteria was also evaluated. staphylococcu ...19863765345
effect of an immunopotentiator on aeromonas salmonicida infection in rainbow trout (salmo gairdneri).the immunoactive peptide fk-565 (heptanoyl-y-d-glutamyl-(l)-mesodiaminopimelyl-(d)-alanine) was found to induce protection against intraperitoneal aeromonas salmonicida infection in rainbow trout (salmo gairdneri richardson). the survival rate was as high as 60% when fk-565 was given intraperitoneally as a single dose (1mg/kg) one day before bacterial challenge. a non-specific stimulation of phagocytic cells by fk-565 at an early stage of the bacterial infection may contribute to the resistance ...19863765348
blood changes in carp (cyprinus carpio) induced by ulcerative aeromonas salmonicida infections.only recently aeromonas salmonicida has been recognized as a significant bacterial pathogen in ulcerative disease of cyprinid fish. our attempts to formulate a vaccine based on bacterial surface antigens were unsuccessful in conferring reliable protection against lethal challenge. this lead us to study pathological changes in the humoral defense system during ulcerative a. salmonicida infection in carp. high numbers of opportunist pathogens such as a. hydrophila and pseudomonas sp. were frequent ...19863765352
