Orungo virus, an orbivirus from Africa: effects of physical and chemical agents.

Abstract

Orungo virus is relatively sensitive to lipid solvents and sodium deoxycholate. It is readily inactivated at 37 degrees C and above, by u.v. irradiation, BP and formalin. Orungo virus is ph 3.0 labile, but stable at ph range of 5.0-7.0. Multiplication of Orungo virus in BHK-21 cell cultures is not affected in the presence of 5-iododeoxyuridine.
