Classification Adenoviridae, Mastadenovirus, Human mastadenovirus B
Deposited As Adenovirus type 11
Agent Human adenovirus 11
Strain Slobitski
Respiratory research
Biosafety Level 2

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

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
