Images ATCC VR-1806 Cell Micrograph

Derived by adaptation from primary cell culture product ATCC® VR-392™ to MDBK cells (ATCC® CCL-22™). ATCC® VR-392™ and ATCC® VR-1806™ have not been compared for sequence or infectivity in primary cell culture and continuous tissue culture. Strain is 25-27 nm in diameter with characteristic rhinovirus structure. Antigenically distinct from Bovine rhinitis A virus, strain SD-1.

Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
MDBK cells (ATCC® CCL-22™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 33°C
Recommendations for Infection: For best results, infection should be performed on a 70-80% confluent, 18-48 hour old cellular monolayer. Prepare dilution of virus in minimum amount of volume (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2), optimized for propagation (e.g. MOI 0.1-0.5 recommended). Wash monolayer with PBS or serum free medium prior to inoculation. Adsorb virus dilution for 1-2 hours at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, rocking every 20-30 minutes to redistribute inoculum. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.
Incubation: 2-7 days at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 80% of the monolayer.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
