Gene expression in haemocytes of kuruma prawn, Penaeus japonicus, in response to infection with WSSV by EST approach.


Gene expression in haemocytes of the kuruma prawn (Penaeus japonicus) was investigated using an expressed sequence tag (EST) approach. Partial nucleotide sequences of cDNA library clones constructed from normal and white spot syndrome virus (WSSV)--infected P. japonicus haemocytes were determined. Of 635 clones obtained from the normal library, 284 (44.7… (More)
