Two phenomena, competition and independent reproduction, were observed on co-cultivation of Japanese encephalitis (JE) and West Nile (WN) viruses in permissive systems. Competition occurred in populations propagated in mouse brains and led to elimination of JE virus. Only clones of WN virus were isolated from these populations at the 1st-3rd passage level. No competition was observed in mixed infection of primary Syrian hamster kidney (SHK) cell culturess the population had the combined… CONTINUE READING
