DOI : 10.4194/2459-1831-v5_2_05 Viewed : 3453 - Downloaded : 1196 White Spot Disease is one of the most devastating diseases of shrimps. Molecular interaction between shrimp receptor protein PmCBP (Chitin binding protein of Peneaus monodon) and viral envelop protein VP24 is obligatory for binding of the White Spot Syndrome Virus to the shrimp digestive tract, and failure of this anchoring leads to an ineffectual infection. This is a first study that throws light on the molecular interaction of PmCBP-VP24 complex and provides important clues for initial steps of ingression of the virus into shrimps.
