Runde virus a coronavirus like agent associated with sea birds and ticks

Runde virus a coronavirus like agent associated with sea birds and ticks

Archives of Virology 55(1-2): 25-38

From 206 Ixodes uriae collected in the seabird colonies at Runde, Norway, 2 identical virus strains demonstrating no antigenic relationships to major arbovirus groups were isolated. The new strains demonstrated a coronavirus-like morphology, hemagglutinated chicken red cells and were sensitive to sodium deoxycholate. Multiplication with CPE [cytopathic effect] was demonstrated in [baby hamster kidney] BHK 21/c13 and BSC-1 cells, and without CPE in Vero and GMK [African green monkey kidney] cell cultures. The mouse pathogenicity was relatively low. In gel precipitation 3-5 specific lines were seen. Precipitating antibodies were found in seabird species commonly infested by I. uriae. The ecological circumstances of the isolates indicate an earlier unrecognized arbovirus circulating between seabirds and I. uriae. this corona-like virus was tentatively termed Runde virus.
