Mouse anti Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus, clone 4A11, specifically recognizes the Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus, an orthomyxovirus being the sole member of the Isavirus genus. ISAV is the causative agent for Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA), a notifiable disease affecting Atlantic salmon and resulting in high mortality (Weli, S.C., et al. 2013). ISAV is similar in structure to other orthomyxoviruses, with the exception of the hemagglutinin (HA) protein that would appear to be significantly different in size than for other influenza type viruses (Rimstad, E., et al. 2001)

ISAV was first identified in farmed salmon in Norway in 1984, spread by wild marine fish species, it has since been detected in farmed Atlantic salmon stocks throughout the North Atlantic, North West America and more recently in Chile, where it has also been detected in farmed Coho salmon (Godoy, M.G., et al. 2008). Due to the high mortality of infected individuals, ISAV has a significant ecconomic impact and infections are of serious concern to the aquaculture industry.

While the route of entry into the host, is as yet, poorly understood, evidence indicates that the virus enters through epithelial tissue in the gills (Weli, S.C., et al. 2013), this is similar to mammalian orthomyxoviruses which target respiratory tissues.

Clone 4A11can be used to identify ISAV in the tissues of infected fish and may be of use for research into methods for diagnosis and control of ISAV infections in the aquaculture industry.
