Detection of harbor porpoise norovirus transcripts in intestinal tissue of a harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) using in situ hybridization with probes designed by Advanced Cell Diagnostics (Hayward, CA, USA), based on the 6,293 nt of harbor porpoise norovirus (A, C, E; original magnification ×40, ×100, ×100, respectively). Consecutive slides were stained with hematoxylin and eosin (B, D; original magnification ×40, ×100, respectively) and pankeratin (F, original magnification ×100), as describ
