Detection of serum anti-Neoparamoeba spp. antibodies in amoebic gill disease-affected Atlantic salmon Salmo salar
Abstract:Amoebic gill disease (AGD)-affected Atlantic salmon Salmo salar sometimes developed a serum-antibody response to wild-type Neoparamoeba spp. Five of 103 AGD-affected S. salar sampled possessed detectable antibodies that bound wild-type Neoparamoeba spp. western blotting revealed two distinctly different binding profiles.
