The virulence of five Sendai virus strains (MN, Z, KN, Mol, and Hm) isolated from laboratory rodents was compared, using 3-week-old female Jcl-ICR mice. The virulence of the strains was Mol, MN, KN, Z, and Hm in decreasing order. The 50% lethal dose and 50% lung consolidation inducing dose of the highest virulent strain differed by the order of more than 10(3) and 10(6), respectively, from those of the lowest virulent one. Other properties such as the growth rate in LLC-MK2 cells, neuraminidase… CONTINUE READING
