Correlation between the virulence of mouse hepatitis virus (MHV) for mice and the growth potential of the virus in peritoneal adherent cells was observed for highly virulent MHV-2 and avirulent MHV-1, JHM, and MHV-S strains. However, this phenomenon was not observed in strain MHV-3, which multiplied to almost the same degree in peritoneal adherent cells from susceptible and resistant mouse strains.
