Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) used for the detection of Taura syndrome virus in experimentally infected shrimp.
The geographic distribution of Taura syndrome virus (TSV) in the Americas: determination by histopathology and in situ hybridization using TSV-specific cDNA probes.
Haemolymph parameters of Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei infected with Taura syndrome virus
Nucleotide sequence of 3'-end of the genome of Taura syndrome virus
of shrimp suggests that it is related to insect picornaviruses.
The companies' resulting H5N1 vaccine (ReplikinsSyntheticTrans-FluTMVaccine), has been successful in poultry in blocking virus entry, replication and excretion, and Replikins Taura Syndrome Virus
Vaccine has protected 91% of shrimp against this fatal virus.
Previously, increases in the ReplikinCount of the Replikins Peak Gene were found to precede and to predict outbreaks and lethality of two other viruses, influenza H5N1 and Taura Syndrome Virus
, in two hosts, human and shrimp respectively.
For each of four strains of Taura syndrome virus
of shrimp, the Replikin Count was determined and compared by FluForecast.
1] have discovered that the shrimp viruses White Spot Syndrome virus (WSSV) and Taura Syndrome virus
(TSV) - global lethal pathogens for shrimp - may be reservoirs for the peptide building blocks of H5N1, or bird flu virus.
