Lasalocid and pyrimethamine was administered to American lobsters infected with A. haemophila. Lasalocid was found to be toxic and acute mortality was observed, when administered in vivo in both infected and uninfected lobsters. Pyrimethamine was found very efficient to treat these ciliates at repea...

A tetrazolium-based cytotoxicity assay was modified to determine the anti-protozoal activity of compounds towards the lobster parasite A. haemophila. To obtain reproducible results, A. haemophila maintained in continuous culture were preferable to freshly isolated A. haemophila. It was also found th...

Hematodinium is a parasitic dinoflagellate of numerous crustacean species, including the economically important Atlantic snow crab, Chionoecetes opilio. The parasite was isolated from C. opilio in the fall of 2010 and 2011 and cultured in vitro. Several media were tested, with Nephrops medium yieldi...

We have performed a genomic characterization of a kinetoplastid protist living within the amoebozoan Neoparamoeba pemaquidensis. The genome of this "Ichthyobodo-related organism" was found to be unexpectedly large, with at least 11 chromosomes between 1.0 and 3.5 Mbp and a total genome size of at le...

Trichocyst morphology and development were explored using transmission electron microscopy in Hematodinium spp. isolated directly from Atlantic snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) hemolymph and from in vitro cultures. Appearance of trichocysts defines the initiation of a morphological transition in the ...

Two clones of 1.4 and 4.33 kilobase pairs (kbp) DNA inserts, were selected from a Sarcocystis cruzi sporozoite genomic library constructed in bacteriophage lambda gt10. These clones strongly hybridized with sporozoite and merozoite DNA and were evaluated as probes for detection of merozoite DNA in c...

The scuticociliate Anophryoides haemophila, causes bumper car disease in American lobster (Homarus americanus) in commercial holding facilities in Atlantic Canada. While the parasite has been recognized since the 1970s and much has been learned about its biology, minimal molecular characterization e...
