Assessment of the Northern Distribution Range of Selected Perkinsus Species in Eastern Oysters (Crassostrea virginica) and Hard Clams (Mercenaria mercenaria) with the Use of PCR-Based Detection Assays
Perkinsus species are protistan parasites of molluscs. In Chesapeake Bay, Perkinsus marinus, Perkinsus chesapeaki, and Perkinsus andrewsi are sympatric, infecting oysters and clams. Although P. marinus is a pathogen for ...
Identification of a Second rRNA Gene Unit in the Perkinsus andrewsi Genome
Perkinsus species are parasitic protozoa of mollusks, currently classified within the Perkinsozoa, a recently established phylum that is basal to the Apicomplexa and Dinozoa. Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes and their intergenic ...
Parasitologische Befunde an Wildhasen in Schleswig-Holstein (Nord-Deutschland)
Seit Mitte der siebziger Jahre wird eine Abnahme der Populationsdichte des Feldhasen (Lepus europaeus [PALLAS, 1778]) in Schleswig-Holstein beobachtet (6). Die Frage nach den Ursachen dieser in einigen Gebieten von ...
Bioassay for ichthyocidal activity of Pfiesteria piscicida: Characterization of a culture flask assay format
The description of the heterotrophic dinoflagellate Pfiesteriapiscicida as the causative agent of fish lesions and deaths along the mid-Atlantic estuaries has revealed the need for bioassays to assess its potential ...
Inquiry-driven Teaching & Learning Using the Archaeal Microorganism Halobacterium NRC-1
(University of California Press, 2016)
Access to microorganisms in the classroom is essential for teaching fundamental concepts of life sciences, yet most are neither safe nor accessible for classroom instruction. Halobacterium NRC-1, a member of the Domain ...
Bioengineering Novel Floating Nanoparticles for Protein and Drug Delivery
Gas vesicle nanoparticles (GVNPs) are hollow protein nanoparticles produced by Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 which are being engineered for protein delivery. To advance the bioengineering potential of GVNPs, a strain of NRC-1 ...
