Baculovirus of Shrimp Baculovirus penaei.
The infectivity and pathogenicity of the penaeid shrimp virus, Baculovirus penaei (BP), is influenced by the stage of viral development. This study consisted of a preliminary experiment which showed that nonocculuded virus administered per os is infective, followed by two infectivity experiments. In the first phase of each infectivity experiment, mysis stage larvae of Penaeus vannamei were inoculated with BP and samples of infected tissue were collected at various times postinoculation (p.
Age of Penaeus vannamei influences infections with Baculovirus penaei in different ways. The virus has less effect on host survival in the older of seven tested age-groups of shrimp experimentally administered virus; no virus-induced mortality occurred in postlarvae older than 63 days. Prevalence of newly acquired infections decreases as age increases, sometimes to zero. Prepatency periods appear to increase by a few days in infections in most successively older tested age-groups.
