This mutant strain was derived by Samuel Dales from the IHD-W strain of Vaccinia (ATCC VR-1441) which in turn was derived from the IHD-J strain.

Non-permissive incubation temperature is 39.5C. This mutant was not assigned a Dales EM category. It was assigned the Condit map location U13. This subtype is distinguishable from the parent IHD-J strain by its ability to elicit polykaryocytosis in all mammalian and avian cells tested and by its inability to induce an active hemagglutinin at the plasma membrane. This mutant was selected after mutagenesis with nitrosoguanidine and replication in the presence of bromodeoxyuridine.
