Laboratory characteristics of poxviruses isolated from captive elephants in Germany



Laboratory characteristics of poxviruses isolated from captive elephants in Germany



Journal of General Virology 37(2): 407-414



Poxviruses isolated from captive elephants in Germany were characterized. Although related to vaccinia and even more closely to cowpox virus, the separate identity of elephantpox virus was established by biological and serological methods. Elephantpox virus produced A-type inclusions in infected [rabbit and monkey] cells, as did cowpox, but had a lower ceiling temperature, was more heat resistant and affected rabbits differently. Cross neutralization tests on absorbed sera indicated that elephantpox, cowpox and vaccinia viruses shared 1 surface antigen, that elephantpox and vaccinia shared an antigen absent from cowpox, and that vaccinia virus had a surface antigen absent from elephantpox and cowpox viruses.
