Abstracts
The fat dormouse (Myoxus glis) was examined as a potential host of hantaviruses and rickettsiae. 98 animals were collected from three different regions in Slovenia (Godovic, Metlika, Sneznik). Serological methods were used for, the detection of specific viral and/or rickesttsial antibodies in animal sera samples. With the PCR method and restriction enzyme digestion, viral and rickettsial genomes were examined. Myoxus glis was confirmed as a host of Hantaan virus. The prevalence of hantaviral infection among the population of Myoxus glis was 13.3 %. It was established that animal age plays a role in the probability of infection with hantaviruses, but not sex. Rickettsial infection was not confirmed in Myoxus glis with any of the methods used.
