dc.description.abstractIn attempting to find a new host of hepadna virus, sera of Manchurian chipmunks
(Tamias sibiricus asiaticus ) were tested for serologic markers of hepatitis B virus and virus like
particles.
Of 47 tested animals, HBsAg reactivities were found in sera of 6 animals and anti-HBs in 7
animals by radioimmunoassay. The HBsAg-positive sera were examined by electron microscopy.
Numerous spherical particles 21 nm in diameter and many spherical double-shelled
particles 41 nm in diameter, which look similar to Dane particles, were observed in all the
HBsAg-positive sera.
The amount of 41 nm particles seems to correlate with the titer of HBsAg reactivities.
Histologic examination of liver tissues from the HBsAg and particles-positive animals showed
no evidence of liver disease.
The detection of HBsAg reactivities and particles similar in appearance to the particles of
hepatitis B virus in sera of Manchurian chipmunks strongly suggests infection of a hepadna
virus in these animals.
