Pathogenicity and tissue distribution of grass carp reovirus after intraperitoneal administration.

Liang HR, Li YG, Zeng WW, Wang YY, Wang Q, Wu SQ - Virol. J. (2014)

Bottom Line: The study showed a distribution of GCRV in different tissues and organs, particularly in the liver, spleen, kidney, intestine, and muscle, which had a higher number of viral RNA copies during the sixth to ninth days.The kidney had the highest numbers of viral RNA copies, as high as 24000 copies.Until the fourteenth day, nearly no viral RNA copies could be detected.

ABSTRACT
Grass carp reovirus (GCRV) is the causative agent of grass carp hemorrhage and causes significant loss of fingerlings. However, little is known about how the virus is distributed in organs and tissues. The aim of the present study was to investigate the distribution of different GCRV stains in tissues and organs of grass carp. The pathogenicity and tissue distribution of GCRV were monitored after intraperitoneal administration. The study showed a distribution of GCRV in different tissues and organs, particularly in the liver, spleen, kidney, intestine, and muscle, which had a higher number of viral RNA copies during the sixth to ninth days. The kidney had the highest numbers of viral RNA copies, as high as 24000 copies. Until the fourteenth day, nearly no viral RNA copies could be detected. This study defined the virus distribution in different tissues of grass carp inoculated by i.p. and supplied clues for the pathogenesis of GCRV.

Fig3: Titers of the serum were determined by using ELISA.

Mentions: The blood of three grass carps from each group were sampled, and the titers of the serum were determined using ELISA (FigureĀ 3). The groups infected by GCRV-HZ08 and GCRV-CL showed elevated antibody levels, which suggested that GCRV-HZ08 and GCRV-CL had infected the grass carp and induced the elevated antibody levels.Figure 3
