Storage Conditions -70°C
Derived by adaptation of primary cell culture product ATCC VR-647 to MDCK cells (ATCC CCL-34). ATCC VR-647 and ATCC VR-1785 have not been compared for sequence or infectivity in primary cell culture and tissue culture. Chloroform/ether sensitive, not known to hemagglutinate, sensitive to pH below 6.5 and heat labile.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 37°
Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 80-90% confluent. Remove medium and inoculate with a small volume of virus (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2) diluted to provide an optimal MOI 0.1. Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, rocking every 20-30 minutes to redistribute inoculum. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.
Incubation: 1-4 days
