To further characterize SGIV gene expression patterns and to monitor the gene temporal kinetic transcription program on a genome-wide scale, we monitored viral gene expression profiles in vitro and in vivo infection.For the experiment of infection in vitro, GS cell monolayers cultured in 75cm2 flask were inoculated with 1ml of SGIV (5.0 ×105.5 TCID50/ml) at 25oC. The mock-infected cells (as reference samples) were treated in the same manner as SGIV-infected cells but with fresh culture medium. Total RNA was isolated from the cells at 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, and 96 hours post-infection (h p.i.), respectively. For the experiment of infection in vivo, Grouper Epinephelus tauvina juveniles with approximately 40-50 g were experimentally infected with 150 µl of the SGIV inoculum (5.0×105.5 TCID50/ml) and held in tanks supplied with running seawater at 25oC. Control fishes were injected with the same volume of EMEM. Total RNA was harvested from the spleens of 5 fishes randomly selected from the experimental population at 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 15 days post-infection (d p.i.). Total RNA from the spleens of 35 mock-infected fishes was used as reference samples. After visual inspection for the presence of image artifacts, such as scratches, dirt, contamination, high region, or overall background on the array, the scanned images were saved as TIF files and further analyzed to generate raw data using SpotDataTM software (CapitalBio). After filtering the low-intensity spots and background-noise value, a global scaling procedure was performed to normalize among the different arrays and the different channels of same arrays using housekeeping gene of piscine 18S RNA which was also spotted in triplicate. To estimate the variance result from dye-bias, a swap-dye strategy was used for the virus-infected and mock-infected samples at 48 h p.i.
