Lang); serotype 2 (strain D5/Jones); and serotype 3 (strain Dearing). Cause benign infections in humans worldwide, only rarely associated with mild respiratory or enteric symptoms. In experimental mice, MRV can cause diarrhea, runting, oily hair syndrome, hepatitis, myocarditis, myositis, pneumonitis, encephalitis and neurological symptoms. This mouse model has been widely used to investigate the molecular basis of viral pathogenesis even though reovirus is not a significant human pathogen.
