Figure 3

Virus DNA detection by real time quantitative PCR in dead or surviving oyster spat after injection of the different filtered (0.22 μm) tissue homogenates made from moribund oyster spat naturally infected by OsHV-1 and collected on the field. Tissue homogenates 1, 2 and 3 were made using moribund oyster spat collected in Normandy (A), South Brittany (B) and the bay of Brest (C), respectively. Tissue homogenate 4 was made using healthy oyster spat from Mediterranean Sea (D). Results are expressed as the mean number of virus DNA copies detected per ng of total DNA extracted from samples of mantle.
