Identification of a collagen-like protein gene from white spot syndrome virus

  journal={Archives of Virology},
The most unique feature of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) is the presence of a collagen-like protein (termed as WSSV-CLP). In this report, the N-terminal fragment of WSSV-CLP (CLPn) was expressed as a fusion protein with glutathione S-transferase (GST) in Escherichia coli and purified. Specific antibody was then raised against the purified fusion protein (GST-CLPn). Temporal analysis showed that the WSSV collagen gene was an early viral gene. Immunogold localization using specific antibody… CONTINUE READING
