Shown to cause a clinical disease, Barmah Forest disease, indistinguishable from Ross River virus infection in humans, who present with a rash, fever and malaise; sometimes with arthritis/arthralgia. Marsupials are likely primary hosts, and the virus has been isolated from a wide variety of mosquito species. Barmah Forest disease became notifiable in Australia in 1995. The virus grows well in the C6/36 mosquito cell line. Dalgarno L and Marshall ID (1999) In Encyclopedia of Virology, Second edition, edited by A Granoff and RG Webster.

Standard’ AMV causes myeloblastosis, osteopetrosis, lymphoid leukosis and nephroblastoma in chickens. It seems likely that the different conditions are caused by individual viruses or combinations of viruses in the ‘standard’ AMV. AMV can cause transformation of yolk-sac or bone-marrow cells in vitro. Contains the oncogene v-myb incorporated at the 5′ leader sequence of the gag gene, and encodes a DNA-binding protein. The transforming virus is probably defective. Non-producer transformed cells can be obtained and from these cells leukemogenic virus can be rescued by superinfection with chicken leukosis sarcoma virus of subgroup B, C or D.
