Abstract

A Bunyamwera group arbovirus was isolated from the blood and from the brain of a female caribou parasitized with meningeal worms. The virus passed through a 0.45 μ filter; was ether sensitive; possessed no hemagglutination properties; could be propagated in suckling mice, 6-day old chick embryos, and BHK-21 tissue culture; and produced plaques in chick embryo fibroblast tissue culture. Neither complement-fixation or neutralization tests were sensitive enough to determine the serotype of the virus.
