Abstract:

Brown fat and kidney tissues from the Alaskan ground squirrel were cultured successfully in vitro. The use of primary explant cultures of ground-squirrel kidney for virus cultivation revealed its suitability for the propagation of selected enteric and respiratory viruses. A possible extension of the findings of the study to problems of diagnostic virology is indicated. Author
