Comments BRBV is a newly discovered, potentially tick-borne human pathogen associated with febrile illness and death in the index case
Effect on Host
CPE, rounding and sloughing
Recommended Host
Vero C1008 cells [Vero 76, clone E6, Vero E6] (ATCC® CRL-1586™)
Growth Conditions

Temperature: 37°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells approximately 24 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 90-100% 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. 0.01). Adsorb 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 3 days at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 90% of the monolayer.

Effect on Host
