Differential accumulation of genetic and phenotypic changes in Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus and Japanese encephalitis virus following passage in vitro and in vivo.

Abstract

The requirement to replicate in both vertebrate and invertebrate hosts is thought to limit the introduction of genetic changes into the genome of arboviruses. Serial passage under laboratory conditions will overcome this limitation allowing for genetic changes to be introduced and affecting the virulence of the virus for animals. In the studies detailed… (More)
