Expression of shrimp miRNAs in response to viral infection.(a) The miRNA expression profiles of WSSV-challenged shrimp at different time post-infection (0, 6, 24 and 48 h). The numbers on the right indicated the log10 of the number of copies of miRNAs. Miss, no copy detected. (b) Northern blots of selected shrimp miRNAs. Total RNA extracted from the lymphoid organs of the virus-free and WSSV-infected shrimp at different time post-infection (0, 6, 24 and 48 h) were blotted with DIG-labeled oligodeoxynucleotide probes. The probes were shown at the left. U6 was used as a loading control.
