Cyprinid herpesvirus 3

Spontaneous outbreaks of HSC mortality have not been reported. 2003, Perelberg et al. Om het risico voor de koi in de vijver tot een minimum te beperken ten opzichte van nieuwe koi, kan er gebruikgemaakt worden van een quarantaineperiode in een aparte voorziening. 3. The amplification protocol included 1 cycle of initial activation at 95°C for 10 min; 30 cycles of denaturation at 94°C for 1 min, annealing at 55°C for 1 min, and extension at 72°C for 2 min; and 1 cycle of terminal extension at 72°C for 10 min. Together, the results presented above demonstrate that the recombinants produced have the correct molecular structure and that the deletion of ORF134 has no marked polar effect on neighbor genes. Deep sequencing of poly(A) RNA isolated from the RNA preparation was performed as described previously (7).

Each population was then stained with primary anti-carp IgM monoclonal antibody and anti-Pax5 polyclonal antibody (from rabbit) at 1:100 dilutions at 4°C for 30 min and rinsed twice with saponin buffer. There are 3 main isolates of the third cyprinid herpesvirus, CyHV-3, one originating in Japan, another in Israel, and another isolated in the US, denoted KHV-J, KHV-I, and KHV-U, respectively. Finally, to investigate further the effect of ORF134 in CyHV-3 pathogenesis, the lesions induced by the FL BAC revertant, FL BAC revertant ORF134 Del and FL BAC revertant ORF134 Rev strains were compared in the gills and the kidney at various time points after infection (Figures 12 and 13). The products were analyzed by 2% agarose gel electrophoresis. All steps were carried out using endotoxin-free materials. However, differences in mortality rates were observed in the CyHV-3 TK deletion strain during an in vivo trial (Costes et al., 2008). One example is fragment C, which reveals that RNR and TmpK are two genes in juxtaposition and are transcribed from the positive and negative DNA strands, respectively.


Next, to investigate whether LUC expression detected on the pharyngeal mucosa was associated with viral replication, and if so to identify the cell type(s) supporting the infection, a biopsy specimen of positive mucosa was analysed by electron microscopy (Figure 3c-d). Davison, and M. The KHV FL BAC recovered strain of CyHV-3 was diluted in MEM to reach a concentration of 5.104 plaque forming unit (pfu)/mL. The functions of these ORFs are unknown. (Ilouze et al., 2012b). The first PCR was carried out with an outer primer set (JF1 and JR1), yielding a PCR product with 716 bp. Matsui, K.

We also evaluated the latency of CyHV-3 in carriers by assessing the expression of genes that are stably transcribed without virus replication (Ilouze et al., 2012b) and by detecting circular and linear CyHV-3 genome. These observations then raise a key question: is the transmissibility of CyHV-3 optimized by the evolution of low virulence strains of virus that induce latency in fish? The proteins were identified as the major capsid protein (ORF104), the proteins encoded by ORF48 and ORF42, and the capsid triplex protein 2 (ORF36) (Table 1 ). Meanwhile, the reaction conditions were optimized and the specificity and sensitivity of the LAMP assay were assessed. In this study, a highly sensitive and specific diagnostic method based on the loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) for CyHV-2 detection in gibel carp was developed following cloning and sequencing of the DNA helicase gene of CyHV-2. For efficacy, the vaccine provided a significant reduction in mortality rate after challenge exposure to a wild-type virus, with a prevented fraction of 0.83 versus the placebo control fish. MiRNAs are derived from longer primary miRNA transcripts (pri-miRNAs) which are processed by the nuclear RNase III enzyme, Drosha, to release precursor miRNA (pre-miRNA) hairpins (~60–70 nt) [8,9].

Intensive culture of common carp and large-scale movements of live koi, often in the absence of health certifications, have unfortunately contributed to the rapid distribution of certain diseases. Eur. Furthermore, epidemiological surveys indicate that the dominant genotype of CyHV-2 circulating in mainland China is closer to the China genotype than the Japan genotype. Furthermore all Edonishiki immersed with the virus died. Therefore, it is likely that the surviving Edonishiki of the 13°C group were virus carriers. Lesions usually develop in low temperatures (winter/spring) and regress with high temperatures (summer) but the latent infection remains. This abundantly expressed and immunogenic capsid-associated antigen may be a useful candidate for KHV serological diagnostics.

Ultrastructural examination of the spleen tissue revealed typical herpesvirus-like particles measuring 100 nm in diameter. Of 118 pools of broodfish tested, 42 were positive. A couple of fish had edema and reddening of the lateral skin. Cyprinid herpesvirus 1 (CHV) or Herpesvirus cyprini was virulent for carp, Cyprinus carpio L., fry following 1 h immersion in water at 20 °C. This is a short preview of the document. The submitted fish had irregular, coalescing, well demarcated areas of scale and skin loss with exposed underlying subcutis and muscles at the dorso-lateral trunk.
