  • a Various cell lines were incubated with MAbs diluted to 1:1,000 and then washed and infected with VHSV. The cytopathic effect was evaluated 3 days later. Protection was estimated positive (+) when more than 90% of the cell monolayer was unaffected. Salmonid-derived cell lines: RTG-2, rainbow trout gonads; CHSE-214, Chinook salmon embryo; RTH, rainbow trout hepatoma cell lines. Non-salmonid-derived cell lines: EPC, epithelioma papulosum cyprini; BF2, bluegill fibroblast; BB, brown bullhead cell lines.
