Abstract

   Aeromonas hydrophila is a Gram-negative motile bacillus responsible for substantial losses in global aquaculture, which also poses a risk to human health. Aeromonosis outbreaks are associated with excess organic matter in water supplies, failure in management, primary parasitic infestations, and the presence of powerful bacterial virulence factors. This study validated an adhesin gene from A. hydrophila ( ahaI ) using a quantitative real-time PCR assay based on SYBR Green I. The analytical specificity and sensitivity of the test was analyzed. The ability to identify and quantify A. hydrophila samples isolated using classical microbiology techniques and total DNA extracted directly from Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus , kidney tissue experimentally infected with bacteria was also deter- mined. The assay had 100% specificity and the sensitivity was 1.9 log gene copies of detection for total DNA from tissue. This study constitutes a valuable tool for the rapid and accurate diagnosis of A. hydrophila in intensive fish farming scenarios.
