Progression of Infection and Tumor Development in Damselfish
Entry ID: RSMAS_MSC001a

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The bicolor damselfish (Stegastes partitus) is a tropical marine telost
naturally affected by multiple neurofibromas and chromatophoromas on South
Florida reefs. Damselfish neurofibromatosis is a transmissible disease causes
by a subcellular agent. Devleopment of tumors is associated with the appearance
of a series of extrachromosomal DNAs ranging in size from 1.2 to 7 kb that
appear to be the ... View entire text
