Comments ATCC® VR-1663™ was treated with diethyl ether at ATCC® to remove Mycoplasma. The previous item number was ATCC® VR-1127™ (NIAID Research Reference Reagent V-106-003-021). Strain 33342 is the prototype strain for Human rhinovirus 17.
Effect on Host
CPE, rounding, sloughing
Recommended Host
H1HeLa (ATCC® CRL-1958™)
Growth Conditions

Temperature: 33°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 80-90% confluent. Remove medium and then wash monolayer with PBS or serum free medium prior to inoculation. Inoculate with a small volume of inoculum (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2) diluted to provide an optimal MOI (e.g. 0.01). Adsorb for 1 hour at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 3 days at 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere while rocking, until CPE is progressed throughout

Effect on Host
