Interferons play a key role in fish resistance to viral infections by inducing the expression of antiviral proteins, such as Mx. The aim of the present study was to test the antiviral activity of the Senegalese sole Mx protein (SsMx) against RNA and DNA viruses pathogenic to fish, i.e. the infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV, dsRNA), the viral(More)
Senegalese sole is susceptible to marine VHSV isolates but is not affected by freshwater isolates, which may indicate differences regarding virus-host immune system interaction. IFN I induces an antiviral state in fish, stimulating the expression of genes encoding antiviral proteins (ISG). In this study, the stimulation of the Senegalese sole IFN I by VHSV(More)
