Nonarbo-togaviridae: Comparative hydrodynamic properties of the pestivirus genus

  • H. Laude
Brief Report


The sedimentation coefficient and buoyant density of hog cholera, bovine viral diarrhea and Border disease viruses, have been compared with those of representative members of the family togaviridae. It appears that the pestivirus genus is a homogeneous group which is not only antigenically but also structurally, unrelated to the other genera of the togavirus family.
