Neptune Seminar Series

Abstract:

Methionine is an example of an amino acid (AA) with recognized roles in the immune system, DNA methylation, polyamines biosynthesis, and in processes involved in the control of inflammation. Tryptophan participates in an array of physiological mechanisms of the neuroendocrine-immune network and plays a critical rola in macrophages and lymphocytes function. Thus, a potential immunomodulatory role of both AA during infection was investigates. This study brings relevant insights about the opposite roles of individual AA on the seabass immune system, and their possible application as nutritional additives for fish health management should be carefully considered.
