Abstract
Members of North American Mustelidae were tested for their response to inoculation with 10(6) infective doses of Aleutian disease virus. In subfamily Mustelinae, 3 species in the genus Mustela (M vision, M erminea, and M putorius) and 2 species in genus Martes (Ma pennanti and Ma americana) responded immunologically with some features resembling Aleutian disease in mink. In subfamily Mephitinae, only Mephitis mephitis responded, and others of the subfamily did not, nor did members of subfamilies Melinae and Lutrinae. The responses observed ranged from development of detectable antibody levels determined by counterimmunoelectrophoresis to histopathologic changes typical of Aleutian disease.
