pcr amplification and sequence analysis of the major capsid protein gene of megalocytiviruses isolated in taiwan.viruses belonging to the genus megalocytivirus in the family iridoviridae are one of the major agents causing mass mortalities in marine and freshwater fish in asian countries. outbreaks of iridovirus disease have been reported among various fish species in taiwan. however, the genotypes of these iridoviruses have not yet been determined. in this study, seven megalocytivirus isolates from four fish species: king grouper, epinephelus lanceolatus (bloch), barramundi perch, lates calcarifer (bloch) ...200919460084
genetic analysis of fish iridoviruses isolated in taiwan during investigate the genetic relationships between field strains of iridoviruses gathered from various fish species in taiwan, viruses that were collected from 2001 to 2009 were analyzed. open reading frames encoding the viral major capsid protein (mcp) and adenosine triphosphatase (atpase) were sequenced for phylogenetic analysis. our results indicated that iridoviruses from taiwan aquaculture fishes could be classified into two groups: prior to 2005, the viruses were closely related to members o ...201121603939
