Basic immunology studies and development of tools to monitor immune responses in cleaner fish

The present project will reveal key immune genes and characteristics of the immune system in wrasse and lumpfish by transcriptome and immunohistochemistry studies. Transcriptome analysis of ballan wrasse will be performed on high throughput sequence data generated by a collaborating research group. Samples collected from vaccination trials on lumpfish will be subjected to transcriptome sequencing in the course of the present project (one dip vaccine and one injection vaccine). This experiment will reveal differences in mucosal and systemic immune responses, components of special importance and possible species-specific characteristics of the immune system in lumpfish. Antisera raised against IgM in wrasse and lumpfish, respectively will be further characterized, and T-cell specific antisera will be developed. B- and T-cell specific antisera will be used, in addition to transcriptome analyses, to study humoral and mucosal immune responses. In collaboration with other researchers we will find out whether there is a lymphoid tissue in the gills of cleaner fish; equivalent to ILT in Atlantic salmon.
