White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) was purified from the tissues of experimentally infected crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) with high yield. Based on SDS-PAGE of purified WSSV and mass spectrometry analysis, a protein with the molecular mass of 39 kDa was identified to match an open reading frame (ORF), WSV339, of WSSV genome. This ORF was 849 bp in length, encoding a 283 amino acid polypeptide. The protein was named VP39 and its gene was termed as vp39. Temporal transcription analysis revealed… CONTINUE READING
