Microscopic image of the subcuticular tissue of the pleopod from a shrimp infected with the supernatant of the third passage of a human larynx carcinoma (Hep-2C) cell culture inoculated with an extract of shrimp infected with Taura syndrome virus. The presence of the virus is clearly visible by in situ hybridization as black spots after the samples were stained with Bismarck brown.
