Abstract

Summary

A virus associated with turkey rhinotracheitis was purified and its morphology and structural polypeptides were compared with those of the bovine, human and murine members of the genus . The isolate possessed surface projections 13 to 14 nm in length and a helical nucleocapsid 14 nm in diameter with a pitch of 7 nm. Approximately seven presumed viral polypeptides were observed. Their apparent molecular weights were 200 × 10 (200K), 84K, 54K, 42K, 37K, 31K and 14K; two of these, the 84K and 54K polypeptides, were glycosylated. The virus was shown to possess many features that were similar to established pneumoviruses and can therefore be regarded as a possible member of this genus.
