Human cytomegalovirus shed in infant urine was isolated and serially passaged in fibroblasts in the presence or absence of neutralizing antibodies. Comparison of the genome sequences of representative viruses Ig-KG-H2 (passed with antibody) and ϕ-KG-B5 (passed without antibody) revealed the presence of several mutations in each virus.
