Classification Adenoviridae, Mastadenovirus, Human adenovirus E
Agent Human adenovirus 4
Strain RI-67
Respiratory research
Biosafety Level 2
Product Format frozen 1 mL per vial
Storage Conditions -70°C or colder
Comments Derived by adaptation from HEK cell product ATCC® VR-1081™ to HeLa-229 cells (ATCC® CCL-2.1™). ATCC® VR-1081™ and ATCC® VR-1572™ have not been compared for sequence or infectivity in primary cell culture and tissue culture.
Effect on Host CPE, cell rounding and degeneration
Recommended Host HeLa-229 (ATCC® CCL-2.1™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 70-90% confluent. Remove medium and inoculate with a small volume of virus (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2) diluted to provide an optimal MOI (e.g. 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: 3-7 days
Effect on Host CPE, cell rounding and degeneration
