In the present study we evaluated the ability of Lactococcus garvieae to infect zebrafish when inoculated intraperitoneally with 2 x 10(7) UFC of this pathogen. L. garvieae can colonize and invade zebrafish at multiple anatomical sites causing a lethal acute septicemic infection with clinical signs and lesions consistent with those observed in lactococcosis outbreaks. Immunohistochemical studies showed the presence of L garvieae into macrophages as well as into non-phagocytic zebrafish cells of liver (hepatocytes). The internalization capacity, showed by L garvieae in zebrafish cells was confirmed in the rainbow trout cell line RTG-2. Our results provide the first evidence that L garvieae is able to invade non-phagocytic host cells. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.
