Abstract

A nucleic acid hybridization assay was developed to rapidly detect small quantities of aquareovirus RNAs in infected cells and organs. Cloned cDNA copies were synthesized from the genomic RNA of the SBR strain of aquareovirus. By using cloned cDNA probes, aquareovirus RNAs were detected in spleen and kidney tissues of experimentally infected fish.
