Hamster kidney cell culture was found susceptible to infection and replication of herpesvirus of turkey (HVT) as evidenced by cytopathic effect, induction of HVT specific, complement fixing antigen, and demonstration of virus particles by electron microscopy. Viral structures at different developmental stages were observed. Several infected cells showed a lamellar inclusion body possibly continuous with the endoplasmic reticulum. The function of these lamellar bodies is not known.
