Pathogen Characteristics

Top of page

Taura syndrome virus (TSV) is one of the major pathogens of penaeid shrimp, notably Litopenaeus vannamei (Lightner, 2011). TSV is a 31-32-nm, nonenveloped, icosahedral virus with a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA genome (Bonami et al. 1997). The virus is assigned to the genus Aparavirus, family Dicistroviridae.
