Yellow head virus is a highly pathogenic agent that can cause a fatal disease in several species of penaeid shrimps. Using a primary cell culture and an in vitro quantal assay (TCID50), this study sought to determine the propagation profile of yellow head virus after inoculation at a low multiplicity of infection in the lymphoid tissue (oka organ) of Penaeus monodon. Detectable levels of virus were present as early as 24 h post-inoculation. Maximal viral yields were reached by 4 d post… CONTINUE READING
