Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) is the causative agent of an important viral disease threatening Atlantic salmon aquaculture. Although its structure and pathogenesis is well described little is known about its immunomodulatory effects on the host. Cellular immunity is critical in the host control of virus infections, an event attributable to antigen presentation through the MHC class I pathway, whose genes are transcriptionally activated by interferons (IFN) and other cytokines.
