Comments Derived by adaptation of primary cell culture product ATCC® VR-1039™ to Vero cells (ATCC® CCL-81™). ATCC® VR-1867™ and ATCC® VR-1039™ have not been compared for sequence or infectivity in primary cell culture and tissue culture.
Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
Vero cells (ATCC® CCL-81™)
Growth Conditions

Temperature: 37°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 16-48 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 (e.g. 0.1). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 4-5 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
