viremia and antibody response to la crosse virus in sentinel gray squirrels (sciuris carolinensis) and chipmunks tamias striatus).six isolates of la crosse (lac) virus were obtained from sentinel gray squirrels (sciuris carolinensis) and four from sentinel chipmunks (tamias striatus) in an endemic area. viremia titers were measured by plaquing on vero cells. antibody responses of the animals were measured by a microneutralization test employing four california group viruses: lac, snowshoe hare (ssh), trivittatus, and jamestown canyon. in both species lac antibody titers peaked at approximately 21 days and were still detect ...1977889022
isolation of la crosse virus (california encephalitis group) from the chipmunk (tamias striatus), an amplifier crosse (lac) virus was isolated from the blood of seven chipmunks (tamias striatus) captured during the summer of 1970 in southwestern wisconsin. with the exception of the original isolate obtained from human brain after fatal encephalitis, these represent the first known isolations of lac virus from a naturally infected free-living vertebrate. the chipmunks were trapped and periodically recaptured in two study areas where 59 chipmunks became infected and developed neutralizing antibody durin ...19751106233
observations on a natural cycle of la crosse virus (california group) in southwestern wisconsin.ecological studies were conducted to document the role of the eastern chipmunk (tramias striatus) as a vertebrate host for la crosse (lac) virus in nature during late summer when aedes triseriatus mosquitoes are most abundant. movement, home range and density of chipmunk populations were determined by trap mark and recapture techniques on grid study areas. the temporal distribution of a. triseriatus was estimated by use of oviposition traps. passive antibodies were found in spring-born juveniles ...19744451237
