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.
Microarray and RT-PCR screening for white spot syndrome virus immediate-early genes in cycloheximide-treated shrimp.
A 3D Model of the Membrane Protein Complex Formed by the White Spot Syndrome Virus Structural Proteins
This study investigated the protein-protein interactions of the major WSSV structural proteins, including several envelope and tegument proteins that are known to be involved in the infection process, and constructed a 3D model of the nucleocapsid and the surrounding outer membrane.
Major Viral Diseases of Penaeus Monodon in Taiwan
The automatic manipulation system designed based on the optimum conditions obtained from tests simulating the possible conditions during automatic manipulation of the small abalone is the first one of its kind.
Sequencing and Amplified Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Analysis of Ribonucleotide Reductase Large Subunit Gene of the White Spot Syndrome Virus in Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus) from…
WSSV rr1-specific RsaI amplified restriction fragment length polymorphism of an amplified 1156-bp fragment thus distinguished the New Jersey blue crab samples from the other WSSV isolates.
Characterization of White Spot Syndrome Virus Envelope Protein VP51A and Its Interaction with Viral Tegument Protein VP26
Membrane topology assays demonstrated that the VP51A 72-kDa protein is a type II transmembrane protein with a highly hydrophobic transmemBRane domain on its N terminus and a C terminus that is exposed on the surface of the virion.
Genetic and phenotypic variations of isolates of shrimp Taura syndrome virus found in Penaeus monodon and Metapenaeus ensis in Taiwan.
The ORF2 amino acid sequence of the Tw2KMeTSV isolate differed from that of isolate tw2KPmTSV in four positions and these differences may account for their phenotypic differences, at least in terms of their ability to replicate in specific hosts.

Investigating the roles of copepods and bivalve mollusks in the transmission of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), which is the causative pathogen of an acute, contagious disease that causes severe mortalities in cultured shrimp, showed that the WSSV genome could be detected and that the viral loads were increased in a time-dependent manner after challenge.
White Spot Syndrome – What We Have Learned about the Virus and the Disease
This paper reviews the work done in the last decade by several research groups, and shows how studies on the key aspects of the biology of WSSV infection have led to improved disease management solutions that are now widely used by the shrimp aquaculture industry.

Immediate-early proteins from many viruses function as transcriptional regulators and exhibit transactivation activity, DNA binding activity, and dimerization in white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) immediate-early protein 1 (IE1) and attempted to map the corresponding functional domains.
