White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) in Crustaceans: An Overview of Host - Pathogen Interaction

White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) in Crustaceans: An Overview of Host - Pathogen Interaction

Viruses are ubiquitous and extremely abundant in the marine environment. One of such marine viruses, the White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) has emerged globally as one of the most contagious, widespread and lethal pathogen of cultured shrimp that causes mass mortality, leading to huge economic loss to the shrimp industry. However, at present there is no such existing treatment procedure to restrict the uncontrolled occurrence and rapid spread of the disease in the wild. Recent advancement in the field of molecular biology has made it possible to obtain information on the factors, mechanisms and strategies used by this virus to infect and replicate in susceptible host cells.
