AIMS: Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei is an emerging microsporidian parasite that has been linked to recent losses caused by white feces syndrome (WFS) in cultivated giant or black tiger shrimp Penaeus (Penaeus) monodon and whiteleg shrimp Penaeus (Litopenaeus) vannamei in Asia. To more accurately assess its impact on shrimp production and to determine reservoir carriers for control measures, our objective was to establish a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay combined with colorimetric nanogold (AuNP) for rapid, sensitive and inexpensive detection of this parasite. METHODS AND RESULTS: A set of six specific primers was designed to successfully detect the SSU rRNA gene of E. hepatopenaei by a LAMP reaction of 45 min at 65°C combined with visual detection of the amplification product via hybridization at 65°C for 5 min with a ssDNA-labled nanogold probe, followed by salt induced AuNP aggregation (total assay time approximately 50 minutes). This method gave similar results to LAMP followed by electrophoresis or spectrophotometric detection, and it was more sensitive (0.02 fg total DNA) than a conventional nested PCR reaction (0.2 fg total DNA). The new method gave negative results with shrimp DNA templates extracted from diseased shrimp containing other pathogens, indicating that the LAMP-AuNP assay was specific for E. hepatopenaei. CONCLUSIONS: Without sacrificing sensitivity or specificity, the new LAMP-AuNP assay significantly reduced the time, ease and cost for molecular detection of E. hepatopenaei in shrimp. © 2013 The Authors Journal of Applied Microbiology © 2013 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
