Images ATCC VR-552 images
Comments No cross-neutralization with other herpesviruses. Can only be propagated in cells of canine origin. Purified 1 time by terminal dilution, and 3 times by plaque passage.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
MDCK cells (ATCC® CCL-34™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: For best results, infection should be performed on a 80-90% confluent, 18-48 hour old cellular monolayer. Prepare dilution of virus in minimum amount of volume (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2). Wash monolayer with PBS or serum free medium prior to inoculation. Adsorb virus dilution for 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: 1-6 days at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 80% of the monolayer.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
