Table 1 Recipient (RCPT) fish showed characteristic disease signs of Enteromyxum leei infection. Mean prevalence of infection, weight, size and condition factor (100 × weight/size3) of the fish used in this study

From: Hints on T cell responses in a fish-parasite model: Enteromyxum leei induces differential expression of T cell signature molecules depending on the organ and the infection status

  1. Gilthead sea bream were exposed (RCPT, n = 10) or not (CTRL, n = 10) to the parasite E. leei by anal intubation and sampled after 10 weeks. Asterisks (*) indicate significant differences with the CTRL group (t-test, P < 0.05). The analysis was also performed separating RCPT fish positive (RCPT+, n = 7) and negative (RCPT, n = 3) for the parasite by histological diagnosis (Table 2). Different superscript letters indicate statistical differences among groups for each of the parameters (ANOVA, P < 0.05)
