cloning of the major capsid protein (mcp) of grouper iridovirus of taiwan (tgiv) and preliminary evaluation of a recombinant mcp vaccine against iridoviruses cause systemic diseases with high mortality in various species of wild and farm-raised fish, resulting in severe economic losses. in 1998, we isolated a new epizootic iridovirus in cultured grouper (epinephelus sp.) in taiwan, thus named as grouper iridovirus of taiwan (tgiv). we report here the cloning of tgiv major capsid protein (mcp). phylogenetic analysis of the iridoviral mcps confirmed the classification of tgiv into the megalocytivirus genus. recombinant tgiv mcp and gi ...201526633384
