Detection of baculovirus associated with white spot syndrome (WSBV) in penaeid shrimps using polymerase chain reaction
It was demonstrated that the causative agents of white spot syndrome in different shnMP specles are closely related and an effective diagnostlc tool is provided for screening shnmp for VSBV infections.
White spot syndrome baculovirus (WSBV) detected in cultured and captured shrimp, crabs and other arthropods
Whlte spot syndrome baculovirus (WSBV) has been found across ddferent shrimp species and in different Asian countries. The detection of WSBV in shrimp with white spot syndrome has already been…
Purification and genomic analysis of baculovirus associated with white spot syndrome (WSBV) of Penaeus monodon
It is confirmed that white spot syndrome associated virus (MJSSV) is a member of genus NOB (Non-Occluded Baculovirus) of the subfamily Nudibaculovirinae of Baculviridae and proposed the use of WSBV (BacULovirus associated with White Spot syndrome) to indicate PmNOBIII related agents.
Vibriosis resistance induced by glucan treatment in tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon)
It appears that beta-glucan is a short-term immunostimulant for shrimp and enhanced the phenoloxidase activity in shrimp hemocytes in vitro.
Genomic and Proteomic Analysis of Thirty-Nine Structural Proteins of Shrimp White Spot Syndrome Virus
ABSTRACT White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) virions were purified from the hemolymph of experimentally infected crayfish Procambarus clarkii, and their proteins were separated by 8 to 18% gradient…

It is shown that white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) uses a shrimp STAT as a transcription factor to enhance viral gene expression in host cells and annexes a putative shrimp defense mechanism, which it uses to enhance the expression of viral immediate-early genes.
Experimental infection of white spot baculovirus in some cultured and wild decapods in Taiwan
Identification of a nucleocapsid protein (VP35) gene of shrimp white spot syndrome virus and characterization of the motif important for targeting VP35 to the nuclei of transfected insect cells.
To identify the protein encoded by a 687-bp open reading frame (ORF) of a salI genomic DNA fragment of shrimp white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), the ORF in a baculovirus/insect cell expression system was expressed and it was shown that VP35 targets the nucleus.

Primary cell cultures from the lymphoid organ of Penaeus monodon were used to investigate in vitro propagation and morphogenesis of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), and WSSV appears capable of following 2 alternative assembly sequences.
Identification of white spot syndrome associated baculovirus (WSBV) target organs in the shrimp Penaeus monodon by in situ hybridization
Various tissues from the mesoderm and ectoderm, such as connective tissue, can all be infected by WSBV, and by 52 or 64 h post-infection, it was found that the stomach, 9111, cuticular epidermis, lymphoid organ, hematopoietic tissue and antennal gland were all Infected with W SBV and that these tissues had become necrotic.
