Abstract
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV), the etiologic agent of white spot disease, is currently the most important viral pathogen infecting penaeid shrimp worldwide. Since the initial report, white spot disease has caused losses of catastrophic proportion to shrimp aquaculture globally. Although considerable progress has been made in characterizing the WSSV and developing detection methods, information on the host genes involved in the immune response in shrimp due to WSSV infection is not available. During this research, the mRNA expression profiles in healthy and WSSV-infected shrimp were determined by analyzing the expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and by microarray a...
