Cryptocaryon irritans infection could cause huge economic losses to the marine fish industry. Larimichthys crocea, a special economic species in China, suffered from the threat of serious infection, and L. crocea could enhance the level of piscidin 5-like to defense against the infection. This study set out to observe the main histopathological changes of some key tissues caused by infection, and determineed how an ectoparasite affected the expression of piscidin-5 like in its hosts. Pathological changes and immune response were assessed using histological and in situ hybridization (ISH) technologies. The infection induced inflammation occurring, especially in the gill where epithelium cells swell, hyperplasia, necrosis shedding adjacent to the parasites attachment sites. Infected hepatic cells grown big vacuoles in the cytoplasm. The boundary between red pulp and white pulp turned indistinct, splenic corpuscle lost the normal structure, the number and size of melano-macrophage centers increased apparently in the infected spleen. The whole structure of head kidney became loose. Immunostaining with RNA probes against piscidin 5-like showed subpopulations of mast cells (MCs) were positive. Piscidin 5-like-positive MCs existed mainly in the head kidney where they distributed around melano-macrophage center, followed in the gill located at different positions they also distributed in the margin of spleen, and randomly and sparsely existed in the liver. After being infected by C. irritans, the gill arch arose positive MCs groups, and they also migrated to spleen, while the positive staining deepen in other detected tissues. Therefore, organism enhanced the expression level through improving expression ability of positive MCs, or increasing the number of positive MCs.

A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 2, closely related to the human HTLV-1 virus. The clinical, hematological, and histopathological characteristics of the disease in STLV-infected monkeys are very similar to those of human adult T-cell leukemia. Subgroups include the African green monkey subtype (STLV-I-AGM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 95% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1, and the Asian rhesus macaque subtype (STLV-I-MM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 90% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1.

An acute infectious disease caused by COXIELLA BURNETII. It is characterized by a sudden onset of FEVER; HEADACHE; malaise; and weakness. In humans, it is commonly contracted by inhalation of infected dusts derived from infected domestic animals (ANIMALS, DOMESTIC).
A complex of cyclic peptide antibiotics produced by the Tracy-I strain of Bacillus subtilis. The commercial preparation is a mixture of at least nine bacitracins with bacitracin A as the major constituent. It is used topically to treat open infections such as infected eczema and infected dermal ulcers. (From Goodman and Gilman, The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1140)
