Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters
The Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters was founded in 1838 with the aim of promoting high-quality research, scholarship, networking and dissemination of information through organized conferences and symposia, awarding prizes, providing financial support and stimulating trans-disciplinary discussion. Only the microbiologists from this wider academy are listed below.
Vibrio anguillarum is a marine bacterium that can cause vibriosis in many fish and shellfish species. Although phage therapy has been proposed as an alternative treatment, the defense mechanisms against phage infection in V. anguillarum and their impact on host function are not fully understood. Here, we examined phage defense strategies in four V. anguillarum strains during exposure to the broad-host-range bacteriophage KVP40.
