  • White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) is one of the most virulent pathogens causing high mortality in shrimp. The viral early genes play a key role in DNA replication and virus proliferation. In this study, a WSSV gene (wsv477) encoding 208 amino acid peptides was characterized as an early gene. The temporal analysis showed that the wsv477 gene was first transcribed at 4 h post-infection, suggesting that it was an early gene. The wsv477 gene was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified… CONTINUE READING
