Abstract

Whitespot virus could be experimentally transmitted from infected Penaeus monodon to P. indicus and repeatedly passed on through several batches of apparently healthy P. indicus . During these passages, white spots first disappeared before subsequently reappearing. Electron microscopic studies revealed the presence of oblong-shaped, fully-as- sembled virus towards the periphery and virus in paracrystalline arrays towards the center of the hypertrophied nuclei. The virus isolated here is referred to as whitespot syn- drome baculovirus (WSUV) until more is known of its antigenic and genomic relatedness to isolates from other countries
