Growth Conditions

Temperature: 33°C

Recommendations for Infection: Plate cells 24-48 hours prior to infection and infect when cultures are 70-85% 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 33°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere while rocking continuously. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.

Incubation: 1-5 days while rocking continuously

Effect on Host
CPE, rounding and sloughing
