Growth Conditions

Temperature: 37°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 75-90% confluent. Remove medium and inoculate with a small volume of virus (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2) diluted to provide an optimal MOI (e.g. 0.1). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere while rocking continuously. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: Incubate infected culture for 2-11 days at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE are well advance through 90% of the culture.

Effect on Host
CPE, refractile rounding and sloughing
