    ..Thus, synthetic hepcidin antimicrobial peptide could have high potential for therapeutic application in farmed fish species. ..

    ..The present study is, to our knowledge, the first to combine cell culture and in vivo approaches to describe host response to β-glucan stimulation and viral infection in zebrafish. ..

Effects of recombinant flagellin B and its ND1 domain from Vibrio anguillarum on macrophages from gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata L.) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, W.). Fish Shellfish Immunol. 2015;42:144-52 pubmed publisher
    ..However, further in vivo studies are needed to confirm and expand on the present results. ..
  4. González Stegmaier R, Guzmán F, Albericio F, Villarroel Espíndola F, Romero A, Mulero V, et al. A synthetic peptide derived from the D1 domain of flagellin induced the expression of proinflammatory cytokines in fish macrophages. Fish Shellfish Immunol. 2015;47:239-44 pubmed publisher
    ..The results were confirmed at the protein levels for IL-8. Collectively, these results suggest that synthetic peptide derived from flagelling could be a promising approach for the immunostimulation and vaccination of farmed fish. ..
