Norfloxacin nicotinate (NOR-N), an adduct of norfloxacin (NOR) and nicotinic acid, has been widely used for replacing NOR in animal husbandry and fishery industry. Nowadays, increasing evidences showed that NOR could pose toxic effects on fish and other aquatic organisms, but as its adduct, whether NOR-N could cause adverse effects on aquatic organ...

Aeromonas schubertii is a major epidemiological agent that threatens cultured snakeheads (Channidae) and has caused great economic losses in fish‐farming industries in China in recent years. In present study, a specific TaqMan minor groove binder (MGB) probe fluorescence real‐time quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay was developed to rapidly detect and qu...

Production of all-male and sterile fish may not only substantially improve yield but also be crucial for the application of genome modified species in aquaculture. Previously, it was reported that the fish lacking primordial germ cells (PGCs) becomes infertile, and nitroreductase, an enzyme converting non-toxic metronidazole (MTZ) into toxic metabo...

Nocardiosis is a chronic infectious disease that afflicts multiple fish species and poses a growing threat to the aquaculture. In this study, Nocardia sp. infection was identified in jade perch, Scortum barcoo, from a pond culture in Guangzhou, China. The infected fish were characterized by dark body color, occasional skin ulcerations, and nodular...

The presence of antibiotics including norfloxacin in the aquatic environment may cause adverse effects in non-target organisms. But the toxic mechanisms of fluoroquinolone to fish species are still not completely elucidated. Thus, it is essential to investigate the response of fish to the exposure of fluoroquinolone at molecular or cellular level f...
Article
This is the first documentation of the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the jade perch, Scortum barcoo. The 16,843 bp mitogenome containes 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, and 2 ribosomal RNA genes) and two main non-coding regions (the control region and the origin of the light strand replication) as do other verte...

Pseudotuberculosis is a bacterial septicaemia caused by Photobacterium damselae subsp.piscicida in several marine fish species.A similar pseudotuberculosis of Seriola dumerili cultured in cage,broke out in Guangdong province,China.A lot of small typical whitish spots were observed on kidney and spleen of infected fish.The typical whitish spots were...

A potentially fatal microsporidial infection targeting the skeletal muscles of the tiger barb Puntius tetrazona was described. Ultrastructural and molecular analyses of infected tissues confirmed that the causative parasite was Pleistophora hyphessobryconis. Compared to P. hyphessobryconis observed in other hosts, those infecting tiger barb demonst...

Infectious spleen and kidney necrosis virus (ISKNV) is the causative agent of a disease causing high mortality in mandarin fish, Siniperca chuatsi. In this study, complete major capsid protein (MCP) genes of nine ISKNV isolates were sequenced and compared with other known megalocytiviruses to evaluate genetic variation and host range of the viruses...

... Compared to food additives or immunomodulators, the transgenic approach has the advantages of allowing the fish to always be ready to respond to disease, the resistance is multi-generational, and once naturally incorporated, no additional cost is incurred. All approaches mentioned would be considered an application of a drug by the US Food and Drug Administration, and all have this disadvantage of having to clear the approval process for commer-To achieve site-specific repair or gene modification to enhance several traits simultaneously, genome editing technology, including ZFN, 179,180 TALEN 181 and CRISPR/Cas9,182,183 has developed rapidly and applied in aquatic animal breeding to improve commercially relevant traits, including reproduction and fertility, 184 fatty acid composition,185,186 growth rate[187][188][189] and disease resistance.61,190 As the principal family of AMPs, cathelicidins play a pivotal role in immune defence against microbial invasions, and are widely present in various organisms, including humans, plants and aquatic animals, but they are absent in catfish.191 ...
... No study reported toxic effects and behavioral alteration in adult zebrafish due to NOR exposure. However, Liang et al. (2020) found that NOR (25 × 10 3 ppb) induced oxidative stress and caused developmental abnormalities in the early life stage of zebrafish [49]. Meanwhile, in the lower concentrations (2-5 × 10 3 ppb), no malformation, disruption in body length, and significant changes in hatching and mortality rate were observed. ...
... Literatur terkait penyakit pada ikan channa tidak banyak ditemukan. Akan tetapi beberapa penelitian mengungkapkan beberapa jenis penyakit yang terdapat pada channa dan menjadi permasalahan (Gautam et al., 2018;Iberahim et.al 2018;Liu et al., 2019;Novita et al., 2020;Pagrut et.al 2017). Lette & Temesgen, 2007;Liu et al., 2020;Pal et al., 2013;Soesatyo, 2015). ...
... The CRISPR/Cas9 system is the simplest approach for genome editing (Ran et al. 2013;Doudna and Charpentier 2014). This system has been used in analyzing gene functions in many studies in humans (Rees and Liu 2018), livestock (Proudfoot et al. 2020), zebrafish (Zhou et al. 2018;, fighting fish (Wang et al. 2021b), and food fish species (Yang et al. 2022). ...
... The initial phases of nocardiosis are generally asymptomatic. Therefore, nocardiosis is normally not detected until the moderate to advanced stages of fish (Wang et al., 2017a). Thus, being difficult to identify, nocardiosis could lead up to 70% cumulative mortality in fish species Le et al., 2021;Maekawa et al., 2018). ...
... Dwarf ornamental fish, such as the balloon molly and dwarf swordtail, are popular in China for their lovely body shapes and graceful activities. By analyzing the skeletal morphology of the dwarf and normal swordtail fishes, Li et al. found the spine length of the dwarf swordtail to be shorter than that of the normal fish, and speculated that dwarfism in the swordtail fish was caused by a developmental defect in the spine [1]. ...
... China. According to their report, the pathogen infects the main snakehead species, Channa maculata and Channa argus, as well as the hybrid cross of C. maculata females and C. argus males, causing high mortality (45%) and becomes one of the most severe diseases in the snakehead farming industry (Chen et al., 2012;Liu & Wang, 2012;Zhang et al., 2019). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time A. diversa and A. punctata have been recovered from cultured freshwater fish since they were first described in human sources (Miñana-Galbis et al., 2010). ...
... These alterations have been used as biomarkers in environmental monitoring and contributed to determine the impact of xenobiotics to aquatic organisms (Nunes et al., 2015). Although some studies have already shown the negative effects of water contamination with antibiotics on fish health (Rodrigues et al., 2017a,b;Rodrigues et al., 2019 a,b;Yang et al., 2020), little is known about the effects of fluoroquinolones in fishes (Liang et al., 2015). Therefore, due to their widespread presence and persistence in aquatic systems, the effects of Cipro on fishes' merit better attention. ...

We refered previous mitogenome paper about Centrarchiformes (Broughton & Reneau, 2006;Chen et al., 2012Chen et al., , 2013Gan et al., 2014;Lavoué et al., 2014;Li et al., 2012Li et al., , 2013Liu et al., 2015;Lv et al., 2014;Miya et al., 2001Miya et al., , 2013Mukai & Sato, 2009;Oh et al., 2007;Prosdocimi et al., 2012;Setiamarga et al., 2008;Yagishita et al., 2009;Yamanoue et al., 2007). Phylogenetic analysis based on the mitogenome sequences using the neighbor-joining method showed that the C. herzi was closely related to C. kawamebari (Figure 1). ...
... Few studies concern the possible phenotypic changes of isolates with genetic variation referred from the difference of ITS and LUS sequences. Between-host ultrastructural differences of Pleistophora hyphessobryconis were documented (Li et al., 2012b). Phylogenetic analysis indicated that O. diplostomuri isolated from the liver of bluegill sunfish L. macrochirus (Perciformes) and the digenean parasite P. minimum in North America was an independent branch, rather than clustering with O. diplostomuri isolated from C. alburnus (Cypriniformes) and X. argentea (Cypriniformes) in China, indicating that host affinity and geographical distribution provide the possible evolutionary signal for the species differentiation in some extents. ...
