To evaluate the genetic diversity of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV), the sequence of the glycoprotein genes (G) of 11 North American and European isolates were determined. Comparison with the G protein of representative members of the family Rhabdoviridae suggested that VHSV was a different virus species from infectious haemorrhagic necrosis(More)
Glycoprotein (G) of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) and infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) contains several neutralizing epitopes. However, recombinant G protein never matches intact viral particles for immunogenicity. DNA immunization offers the possibility to deliver the antigen through the cellular machinery, thus mimicking natural(More)
Proliferative kidney disease (PKD) is a hyperplastic condition of the lymphoid tissue of salmonids infected with the spores of Tetracapsula bryosalmonae, a myxozoan parasite formerly designated PKX, which has recently been described as a parasite of several species of bryozoans. The occurrence of PKD is generally associated with seasonal increase in water(More)
In order to study the antigenic structure of the G protein of VHSV, we produced several anti-G monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) and used 4 neutralizing MAbs (NMAbs) to select resistant (MAR) mutants. Each MAR mutant was confronted with the 4 NMAbs in a neutralization test, and also with our panel of MAbs in surface plasmon resonance (SPR) analysis to determine(More)
Viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS) is a fish rhabdovirus infection of world-wide importance. Control policies have been established but the disease still causes heavy losses in fish farming. The development of a recombinant subunit vaccine was initiated to produce a safe and effective vaccine to protect fish against VHS. The VHS virus (VHSV) glycoprotein,(More)
During an epidemiological survey of viral encephalopathy and retinopathy (VER) in diseased sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax, a nodavirus isolate was recovered from net pen-reared sea bream Sparus aurata harboured in the same farming premises. After the virus was isolated and identified by immunofluorescence on SSN-1 cells, sequence analysis with a PCR product(More)
A cDNA clone encoding for the glycoprotein of the viral haemorrhagic scepticaemia virus, a fish rhabdovirus, has been sequenced. The cDNA was 2035 bp long and contained two open reading frames (ORF). A 1523 bp ORF corresponded to the glycoprotein and was adjacent, on its 5' side, to an incomplete 372 bp ORF. Although the protein encoded by this ORF(More)
Rhabdoviruses were isolated from perch Perca fluviatilis and largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides exhibiting clinical signs of disease. Preliminary studies indicated that these viruses could be neutralised by antisera to perch rhabdovirus (Dorson et al. 1984) and may be similar to those previously isolated from grayling Thymallus thymallus and pike-perch(More)
Infectious haematopoietic necrosis (IHN), a rhabdoviral infection of salmonid fish, was considered to be an exotic disease in Europe until it was recognized in France and Italy in 1987. In France, the existence of this new condition led the authorities in charge of animal health to order epidemiological studies to be undertaken. These studies were based(More)
