gosling hepatitis virus See Goose par-vovirus.

Graffi leukemia virus A strain of Murine leukemia virus obtained by injecting extracts of several transplantable mouse tumors into newborn Agnes Bluhm strain mice. Causes a chloroleukemia. The cell type may be granulocytic, lymphocytic or histiocytic depending on the mouse strain, age and hormonal status.

Grand Arbaud virus (GAV) A serotype or strain of Uukuniemi virus in the genus Phlebovirus. Isolated from a tick, Argas reflexus, in southern France. Not reported to cause disease in humans.
grass carp reovirus (GCRV) A tentative species in the genus Aquareovirus. Causes an acute hemorrhagic disease in 'fingerling' and 'yearling' grass carp. Isolated from a moribund grass carp, Cteno-pharyngodon idella, in FHM cells in which it produces CPE. Optimal temperature for virus replication is 16-23°C. Infectivity not neutralized by antiserum to rhabdovirus carpio or swim-bladder inflammation virus. Common carp, Cyprinus carpio, appear to be resistant to the virus, but grass carp are easily infected from the water they are in, and die in 8-9 days with hemorrhagic inflammation in scale bases and other tissues.
grass carp rhabdovirus Synonym for pike fry rhabdovirus.
Gray Lodge virus (GLOV) A tentative species in the genus Vesiculovirus. Isolated from mosquitoes, Culex tarsalis, in California, USA. Not known to cause disease in humans.
gray patch disease agent of green sea turtle Synonym for chelonid herpes-virus 1.
grease or grease-heel virus A poxvirus infection of horses. Often considered to be the same as horsepox but this is not certain. Vesicles appear on flexor surfaces of lower parts of legs, later becoming pustules and crusts. Recovery usually occurs after 3 weeks.
