A non-occluded, systemic baculovirus that occurs in cells of ectodermal and mesodermal origin and causes high mortality in the black tiger prawn Penaeus monodon.
In the course of experimental infection of Penaeus monodon wlth yellow-head virus [YHV) for virus isolation and purification, 1 batch of prawns yielded hemolymph fractions dominated by a previouslyExpand
