Langat virus (LGTV) A species in the genus Flavivirus, in the Mammalian tick-borne encephalitis virus group. Isolated from a pool of ticks, Ixodes granulatus, in Malaysia. Antibodies found in forest ground rats. Has low pathogenicity for mice and monkeys, but is very virulent in severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice. Baby mouse brain cell cultures show loss of contact inhibition, and the cells pile up. Cultivation in chick embryo fibroblasts causes attenuation and this virus protects mice against homologous and heterologous tick-borne flavivirus. In humans it has caused an antibody response but no disease, except in two leukemia patients infected experimentally who developed encephalitis.
