Different expression profiles of Interleukin 11 (IL-11), Intelectin (ITLN) and Purine nucleoside phosphorylase 5a (PNP 5a) in crucian carp (Carassius auratus gibelio) in response to Cyprinid herpesvirus 2 and Aeromonas hydrophila.

    ..The lack of a C-terminal peptide of crucian carp ITLN gene implied a possible functional difference of this gene during evolution, which merit further investigation. ..
