Abstract

Three different strains of bluetongue virus were adapted to grow in primary bovine foetal kidney cell cultures. The cytopathic effects observed from the three strains were similar, and were characterized by shrinkage of cells and increased granularity. The specificity of the changes was confirmed by the fluorescent antibody technique. No significant immunological cross-reaction was detected by serum-virus neutralization tests from the strains studied.
