Comments
Derived by adaptation of egg-passage A/Swine/1976/31 (ATCC VR-99) to MDCK (ATCC CCL-34) cells. (Note: ATCC VR-99 and ATCC VR-1682 have not been compared with respect to sequence or infectivity in chick embryo and tissue culture).
Effect on Host
CPE (cell rounding, degeneration, sloughing)
CPE (cell rounding, degeneration, sloughing)
Growth Medium Medium 30-2003: Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM)
Recommended Host
Production Host: MDCK (ATCC CCL-34)
Alternate Hosts: Chicken embryo; MDCK and monkey kidney cells (MkK)

Recommended Host:  MDCK (ATCC® CCL-34™)

Growth Conditions
For best results, plate cells 24-48 hours in advance. Infect at 80%-90% confluent (not 100% confluent) using a multiplicity of infection (MOI) of 0.01 to 1.0. Incubate at 35.0°C in a humidified, 5% CO2 atmosphere for 2-4 days, until CPE are well advanced in 100% of the culture. In TC, ATCC VR-1682 should be grown in serum free media that contains 1 ug/ml TPCK-treated trypsin, 0.125% BSA and 1% HEPES (1 molar stock).
Effect on Host
CPE (cell rounding, degeneration, sloughing)
