Abstract
Coxsackie virus infection occurred in both active and hibernating states by extension of virus into the tissues of ground squirrels following oral administration of virus. Virus was eliminated rapidly by the active animals but retained in tissue depots of hibernating animals for a lengthy period of time. The findings pose a question of whether the Alaskan ground squirrel could serve as a reservoir for the maintenance of microbiological forms of life in arctic areas.

Abstract
Brown fat and kidney tissues from the Alaskan ground squirrel were cultured successfully in vitro. The use of primary explant cultures of ground-squirrel kidney for virus cultivation revealed its suitability for the propagation of selected enteric and respiratory viruses . A possible extension of the findings of the study to problems of diagnostic virology is indicated.
