Virus protein coat

Postby snow88 » Fri Dec 17, 2010 11:29 pm

I am currently dealing with IHHNV virus in M. rosenbergii. My task is to clone the capsid gene of IHHNV. However, i am facing problem with getting the capsid gene out from the genome. The primers i used are designed from Peneaus spc. May i know how often does virus protein coat undergo mutation? Is it feasible if i use protein coat sequence from other related species to design primers for my species?

Yes, you may do that, try to collect as much sequences as possible from related species of your particular gene and find the conserved region.

Seems that the mutation can occur in a relatively high rate.
