K virus (KV) A strain of Murine Polyomavirus in the genus Polyomavirus. A natural and probably silent infection of wild mice. Causes fatal pneumonia and sometimes liver lesions on injection into mice less than 10 days old. In mouse lung cell cultures, foci of transformed cells appear which produce tumors on injection into newborn or X-irradiated mice. Agglutinates sheep erythrocytes at room temperature or 37°C.
