Rousettus lyssavirus (RLV) A strain of European bat lyssavirus 1 in the genus Lyssavirus, isolated in Denmark from a colony of apparently healthy Egyptian flying foxes, Rousettus aegypticus, originating from Rotterdam zoo where they had inhabited an artificial cave for more than 6 years. Caused clinical rabies when inoculated intracranially into bats of the same species and caused neurological signs in mice. The virus is closely similar by genetic analysis to EBLV-1, isolated from free-living Eptesicus serotinus bats.

Rowson-Parr virus A strain of Murine leukemia virus in the genus Gammaretrovirus, isolated from a Friend murine leukemia virus preparation by endpoint dilution. Causes a very minor degree of splenomegaly but is a potent depressor of the immune response. After a long latent period of 6-8 months, neo-plastic lymphoid cells appear in the germinal centers of the spleen and later in other lymphoid tissues.

Royal Farm virus (RFV)
Royal Farm virus (RFV) A species in the genus Flavivirus, belonging to the mammalian tick-borne virus group. Isolated from a tick, Argas hermanni, in Afghanistan. Not reported to cause disease in humans.
RPMI 1788 cells (CCL 156) One of a series of hematopoietic cell lines originating from the peripheral blood leukocytes of an apparently normal 33-year-old Caucasian male.
RPMI 1846 cells (CCL 49) A melanotic cell line derived from a malignant melanoma which arose spontaneously in an aged golden hamster and was carried for 41 animal passages by subcutaneous implantation.
RPMI 2650 cells (CCL 30) Established from the pleural effusion of a patient with extensive malignant tumor of the nasal septum.
RPMI 7666 cells (CCL 114) One of a large series of apparently permanent cell lines derived from leukocytes in the peripheral blood of donors with and without malignancies.
RPMI 8226 cells (CCL 155) One of a series of human hematopoietic cell lines obtained from the peripheral blood of a 61-year-old male with multiple myeloma.
RR 1022 cells (CCL 47) A heteroploid cell line derived from a tumor induced in inbred Amsterdam rats, Rattus norvegicus, by i.m. injection of the Schmidt-Ruppin strain of Rous sarcoma virus.
RTG-2 cells (CCL 55) A heteroploid cell line derived from pooled trypsinized male and female gonadal tissue of yearling rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneri. The first cell line to be established from poikilo-thermic animals. Cells do not survive above 26°C.
RT parvovirus (RTPV) A species in the genus Parvovirus. Isolated from a line of rat fibroblasts, RT. Natural host unknown. Antigenically different from
KBSH, Tumor virus X and LU III viruses. Hallauer C et al (1971) Arch Virol 35, 80
RT parvovirus An autonomous parvovirus isolated from suckling mice that had been inoculated with human synovial tissue from cases of rheumatoid arthritis. A rodent strain of parvovirus unrelated to the human disease. The report was erroneous.
