Abstract

Abstract

Maguari virus has been classified as a subtype of Cache Valley virus. Seven Bunyamwera serogroup viruses (including prototypes Cache Valley and Maguari viruses), 4 viruses shown in previous tests as close antigenic relatives of Maguari or Cache Valley viruses, and Xingu virus were cross-tested by serum dilution-plaque reduction neutralization. All viruses were distinguishable from prototypes Cache Valley and Maguari viruses. The close antigenic relationships of the Cache Valley-like viruses demonstrate that multiple subtypes of Cache Valley virus exist and suggest that such antigenic variation is a phenotypic expression of considerable genetic diversity.
