White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infects penaeid shrimp and other crustaceans. The WSSV virion consists of an enveloped rod-shaped nucleocapsid enclosing a large circular double-stranded DNA genome of 293 kbp. The virion envelope contains two major proteins of 28 (VP28) and 19 kDa (VP19) and the nucleocapsid consists of three major proteins of 26 (VP26), 24(More)
White spot syndrome virus, type species of the genus Whispovirus in the family Nimaviridae, is a large, double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) virus that infects crustaceans. The genome of the completely sequenced isolate WSSV-TH encodes 184 putative open reading frames (ORFs), the functions of which are largely unknown. To study the transcription of these ORFs, a DNA(More)
