White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) is type species of the genus Whispovirus of the new family Nimaviridae. Despite the elucidation of its genomic sequence, very little is known about the virus as only 6% of its ORFs show homology to known genes. One of the structural virion proteins, VP15, is part of the nucleocapsid of the virus and shows homology to some putative baculovirus DNA binding proteins. These DNA-binding or histone-like proteins are thought to be involved in the condensation and… CONTINUE READING
