Classification Adenoviridae, Mastadenovirus, Human mastadenovirus B
Deposited As Adenovirus type 11
Agent Human adenovirus 11
Strain Slobitski
Respiratory research
Biosafety Level 2
Product Format frozen 1.0 mL per vial
Storage Conditions -70°C or colder
Images ATCC VR-12 micrograph of host effects
Agglutinates rhesus RBC.  Weakly oncogenic.  Contains soluble group-specific CF antigen.  Efforts at ATCC® to detect polio by antibody-antigen reaction in VR-12™ have yielded negative results.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
KB cells (ATCC® CCL-17™)
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: 2-4 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
