Differential effects of oyster (Crassostrea virginica) defenses on clinical and environmental isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
(, 1999 199)
Three clinical (2030, 2062, and 2107) and three environmental (1094, 1163, and ATCC 17802) isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus were exposed to hemocytes and plasma collected from oysters (Crassostrea virginica) to determine ...

Hemolymph diagnosis for Perkinsus marinus was performed on laboratory-held oysters (Crassostrea virginica ) from the Gulf of Mexico to assess the influence of salinity and temperature. All experimental conditions exhibited ...
Responses of oysters and their hemocytes to clinical and environmental isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
(, 2000 200)
Interactions of Vibrio parahaemolyticus with oysters and oyster hemocytes were studied using three environmental isolates (1094, 1163 and ATCC 17802) and three clinical isolates (2030, 2062, 2107). Clinical isolates were ...
