complete genome analysis of the mandarin fish infectious spleen and kidney necrosis iridovirus.the nucleotide sequence of the infectious spleen and kidney necrosis virus (isknv) genome was determined and found to comprise 111,362 bp with a g+c content of 54.78%. it contained 124 potential open reading frames (orfs) with coding capacities ranging from 40 to 1208 amino acids. the analysis of the amino acid sequences deduced from the individual orfs revealed that 35 of the 124 potential gene products of isknv show significant homology to functionally characterized proteins of other species. ...200111878882
characterization of an iridovirus detected from cultured turbot scophthalmus maximus in korea.juvenile turbot scophthalmus maximus that became sick during an outbreak of disease at mariculture facilities at go-chang, korea, in 2003, were examined to identify the cause of the disease. the fish had pale body color, an enlarged abdomen, protruding eyes, an enlarged spleen and kidney, and pale gills and/or liver. histopathogical examination revealed basophilic enlarged cells in the kidney, spleen, gills, heart, stomach, intestine, liver, pancreas and skin. hexagonal viral particles with a di ...200515918481
