Classification Poxviridae, Chordopoxvirinae,Yatapoxvirus
Agent Yaba monkey tumor virus
Strain Roswell Park-Yohn
Common Name Yaba monkey tumor virus
Biosafety Level 2
Isolation
Rhesus monkey, subcutaneous histiocytoma
Product Format frozen
Storage Conditions -60°C or colder
Comments
Infected BS-C-1 cells (ATCC CCL-26) slowly develop cytoplasmic eosinophilic inclusions.
Will not grow in Rhesus Kidney cells. Must by cultivated at 33-35C, will not grow at 37C. Has group antigen for Poxvirus, crosses slightly with vaccinia and monkeypox and is less stable. Does not hemagglutinate.
Effect on Host
Causes tumor (Histiocytoma) in vivo, and microfoci at limiting dilution in CV-1 cells
Recommended Host
CV-1 cells (ATCC CCL-70); rhesus monkey (in vivo)
Primary cercopithecus monkey kidney cells in tissue culture; primary cynomolgus monkey kidney cells in tissue culture; rhesus monkey kidney cells in tissue culture
Growth Conditions
Incubation: 18 days at 35°C (in vitro)
Effect on Host
Causes tumor (Histiocytoma) in vivo, and microfoci at limiting dilution in CV-1 cells
