Abstract: The roles of intracellular naked (INV), cell-associated enveloped (CEV), and extracellular enveloped (EEV) forms of vaccinia virus in cell-to-cell and longer-range spread were investigated by using two closely related strains of vaccinia virus, WR and IHD-J. We confirmed previous results that WR and IHD-J produced similar amounts of INW and formed similar-size primary plaques but that IHD-J produced 10 to 40 times more EEV and spread to distant cells much more efficiently than did WR. Nevertheless, cells infec…
