Abstract

A systemic iridoviral disease associated with high mortality was initially recognized in cultured mullet, Mugil cepbalus L., and tiger grouper, Epinephelus fuscoguttatus Forsskal, by histopathology and transmission electron microscopy. Polymerase chain reaction was performed on tissues and viral isolates, using four published primer sets developed for the Red Sea bream iridovirus (RSIV). An indirect fluorescent antibody test was also performed on virus-infected ATCC gruntfin (GF) and seabass, Lates calcarifer Bloch, (SB) cells using a monoclonal antibody, RSIV M10. Our results suggested that the mullet and tiger grouper iridovirus bears genetic and antigenic similarities to RSIV.
