The cuticula of penaeid shrimp as a first barrier to white spot syndrome virus (WSSV)

Dutch title: De cuticula van de penaeide garnaal als eerste barrière tegen het white spot syndrome virus (WSSV)
Period: January 2006 till December 2007
Status: Completed

Taxonomic term: Litopenaeus vannamei (Boone, 1931) [WoRMS]

Strong indications exists that WSSV infections in penaeid shrimp are influenced by the exoskeleton (cuticula). Possible routes through the cuticula, the influence of molting and a possible mediating role of bacterial flora will be examined in SPF Litopenaeus vannamei shrimp.
