Outbreak of Anguillid herpesvirus-1 (AngHV-1) infection in cultured shortfin eel (Anguilla bicolor) in Korea

Abstract : Koi herpesvirus (KHV) induces a lethal disease in species belonging to Cyprinus carpio, covering common carp and koi or fancy carp. Various bacterial organisms were isolated from the cutaneous lesions, but not from the internal viscera. punctatus, inducing a cytopathic effect similar to that caused by Ictalurid herpesvirus 1 (also referred to as channel catfish herpesvirus, CCV). The observed pathological alterations lead to the assumption that the carp skin barrier is strongly challenged during CyHV-3 associated disease. A., Haenen, O. In carp under CyHV-3 infection, an up-regulation in the expression of IFN-a2, IL-1beta and iNOS was observed, together with an elevation of transcriptional levels of claudin-2, -3c, -11, and -23. From the survivor SSH library, 599 ESTs was clustered to 549 unigenes (including 107 singletons and 105 contigs).

Depledge, and D. C., Peeters, B. P. H., Rottier, P. The identification and localization of the structural proteins of AngHV-1 in this study adds to the fundamental knowledge of members of the Alloherpesviridae family, especially of the Cyprinivirus genus. Researchers concluded that common carp damage the ecology of shallow lakes, particularly when carp density reaches levels similar to those in parts of the Murray-Darling Basin. Y.: Complete genome sequence and taxonomic position of anguilld herpesvirus 1.

J. Gen. These results revealed that susceptibility of Japanese indigenous Cyprininae fish species to CyHV-2 is much lower than for goldfish.
