Comments
Replicates very slowly. Agglutinates rat RBC. Identical to adenovirus type 10 in HAI but different in neutralization tests
REFERENCE STRAIN: Pereira, H.G. et al., Virology 20: 613, 1963.
Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
KB cells (ATCC® CCL-17™)
Growth Conditions

Temperature: 37°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 18-24 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. 0.01-0.1). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 6-10 days at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 80% of the monolayer.

Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding and sloughing
