Experimental infections of birds with Turlock virus



Experimental infections of birds with Turlock virus



Journal of Wildlife Diseases 19(2): 82-85



Two experiments were conducted with five gallinaceous and one passerine bird species to determine their responses to Turlock (TUR) virus inoculations. Inoculation of TUR strain 847-32 into bobwhites, chukars, ring-necked pheasants, chickens, and Japanese quail did not product detectable viremias. The first four species, however, did respond with neutralizing antibody. Inoculation of chickens with strain 69V-1095 resulted in a viremia which lasted 5 days and had a peak mean titer of 2.0 log 10 PFU per 0.2 ml of blood on the third day after infection. The observation that viremic birds exhibited no noticeable virus-associated morbidity or mortality suggested that TUR virus does not have a detrimental effect on free-ranging populations of the avian hosts studied during this investigation.
