The response of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, Walbaum) towards probiotics present in the feed was investigated by examining the proteome of serum as a measure of the acute phase response (APR). Proteomic analysis by two-dimensional electrophoresis (2D) concurrently with mass spectrometry was used to detect APR related proteins in rainbow trout serum following feeding with probiotics Aeromonas sobria GC2 and Bacillus sp. JB-1. Three candidate proteins increased following use of GC2, and were putatively identified as NADH dehydrogenase, dystrophin and mKIAA0350. Conversely, one of the proteins, which were induced following use of JB-1 was identified as transferrin. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
