Abstract

Summary

Arkansas bee virus, bee virus X and slow paralysis virus, isolated from adult honey bees, have isometric particles, contain RNA and are serologically unrelated to each other or to the other known bee viruses. Arkansas bee virus particles are 30 nm in diam. sediment at 128S, have a buoyant density in CsCl of 1.37 g/ml and kill bees injected with them in about 3 weeks. Bee virus X particles are 35 nm in diam., sediment at 187S, have a buoyant density of 1.36 g/ml, multiply when fed to young bees kept at 30 °C but not at 35 °C nor when injected, and have not by themselves been associated with symptoms or mortality, although they killed bees when injected in combination with sacbrood virus. Slow paralysis virus particles are 30 nm in diam., sediment at about 176S, have a buoyant density of 1.35 g/ml and kill bees injected with them in about 12 days.
