Table 1 Description of the four different initial tissue homogenates made from naturally OsHV-1 infected oyster spat collected on the field in France during the abnormal mortality outbreak in 2008

From: Experimental infection of Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas spat by ostreid herpesvirus 1: demonstration of oyster spat susceptibility

Name Origin of animals Virus DNA amount OsHV-1 genotype
Homogenate 1 Normandy (Cotentin) 4.21 × 102 μVar
Homogenate 2 South Brittany (Morbilhan) 2.18 × 103 μVar
Homogenate 3 North Brittany (Bay of Brest) 2.03 × 102 μVar
Homogenate 4 Mediterranean sea 0 -
  1. Virus DNA amounts of oyster tissue homogenates were quantified by real-time quantitative PCR and expressed as the number of virus DNA copies per μL of water. OsHV-1 genotypes of homogenates were determined by sequencing of the virus genome.
