We have successfully designed and constructed a RAEV vector system with regulated-delayed attenuation in vivo attributes that synthesizes Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (Ich) protective antigen IAG52B to enable vaccination of fish susceptible to edwardsiellosis and white spot disease. The first feature of this vaccine delivery system is an Edwardsiel...
Article
Vaccination remains the most effective approach for prevention and control of infectious diseases in aquaculture. Edwardsiella piscicida is a causative agent of edwardsiellosis leading to mass mortality in a variety of fish species, leading to huge economic losses in the aquaculture industry. In this study, we have deleted the aroA and phoP genes i...
Article
Edwardsiella piscicida is the etiological agent of edwardsiellosis in fish and causes severe economic losses in global aquaculture. Vaccination would be the most effective method to prevent infectious diseases and their associated economic losses. The ferric uptake regulator (Fur) is an important transcriptional global regulator of Gram-negative ba...
Article
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play key roles in innate immunity from lower to higher vertebrates. Among various TLR types, TLR4 was reported to recognize LPS in higher vertebrates resulting in the activation of down-stream signaling pathway. Except in some teleosts, function of TLR4 in most fish species including rohu (Labeo rohita) a commercially imp...
Article
Immunoglobulins (Igs) play critical roles in protecting host against diverse pathogenic invasion and diseases. Among all Ig isotypes, IgD is the most recently-evolved and enigmatic molecule detected in all vertebrates species except birds. In South-East Asia, Labeo rohita (rohu) is the leading candidate fish species for freshwater aquaculture, and...

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and nucleotide binding and oligomerization domain (NOD) receptors are pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) that recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and play crucial role in innate immunity. In addition to PAMPs, PRRs recognize endogenous molecules released from damaged tissue or dead cells [damage-ass...
Article
Interferon gamma (IFN-γ) is one of the key cytokines that plays a major role against viral and intracellular bacterial infection. In addition to the IFN-γ gene, teleost fish possess a second copy known as IFN-γ-related (IFN-γrel) gene. This report describes structural and functional properties of IFN-γrel gene in the Indian major carp, rohu (Labeo...
Article
The leucine rich repeat (LRR) motifs of the nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain like receptors (NLRs) play key roles in recognizing and binding various pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) resulting in the activation of downstream signaling and innate immunity. Therefore, identification of LRR motif is very important to study ligand...
Article
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a class of innate immune receptors that sense pathogens or their molecular signatures and activate signaling cascades to induce a quick and non-specific immune response in the host. Among various types of TLRs, TLR22 is exclusively present in teleosts and amphibians and is expected to play the distinctive role in inna...
Article
Nucleotide binding and oligomerization domain (NOD)1 and NOD2 are important cytoplasmic pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) and key members of the NOD-like receptor (NLR) family. They sense a wide range of bacteria or their products and play a key role in inducing innate immunity. This report describes the role of NOD1 and NOD2 receptors signallin...

Figure S1. Multiple sequence alignment of rohu TLR2 with other species by MegAlign program. N-termini, C-termini, LRR, trans-membrane (TM) and TIR domain regions are labeled. Conserved residues are shown inside yellow box. Majority axis represents the highest occurrence of a residue in a column. Figure S2. Ramachandran plot analysis of (a) TLR2-ECD...
Article
The nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain 1 (NOD1) receptor recognizes various pattern-associated structures of microbes through its leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domain and activates signaling cascades to induce innate immunity. This report describes the activation of NOD1 receptor signaling by gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelic acid (or γ-D-Glu...

The nucleotide binding oligomerization domain 1 (NOD1) is a cytoplasmic pattern recognition receptor (PRR), and is a member of the NOD-like receptor (NLR) family. It senses various pathogens or their products, and plays an important role in inducing innate immunity. This report describes the identification of NOD1 and its down-stream signaling in...
Article
Full-text available
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play key roles in sensing wide array of microbial signatures and induction of innate immunity. TLR2 in fish resembles higher eukaryotes by sensing peptidoglycan (PGN) and lipoteichoic acid (LTA) of bacterial cell wall and zymosan of yeasts. However, in fish TLR2, no study yet describes the ligand binding motifs in the leu...
Article
In lower eukaryotes-like fish, innate immunity contributed by various pattern recognition receptor (PRR) plays an essential role in protection against diseases. Nucleotide-binding and oligomerization domain (NOD)-2 is a cytoplasmic PRR that recognizes MDP (muramyl dipeptide) of the Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria as ligand and activates si...
Article
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are one of the key components of innate or non-specific immunity. Among various types of TLRs, TLR3 recognizes dsRNA, the genetic material or replicative intermediate of many RNA viruses and triggers TIR-domain-containing adapter-inducing interferon-β dependent signalling pathway to induce type I interferon (IFN) and pro-...
Article
In response to double stranded RNA (dsRNA) viruses, toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) in fish activates signaling like human, and induces innate immunity. This suggested the existence of dsRNA binding domains in fish TLR3 as reported in higher vertebrates. In in silico analysis, leucine rich repeat (LRR) regions (4-6, 13-14, 20-22), and LRR (8-15, 17-24)...
