None of four isolates of (Wor.) Dang. ( 1, 2, 3 and 6) transmitted the original strain of satellite virus ( 1). Two strains of satellite virus recently isolated ( 2 and 3) were both transmitted, but 2 only by 6 and 3 only by 3. Hence different isolates of seem to be specific vectors for different strains of satellite virus.
