Comments Derived by adaptation of primary cell culture product ATCC® VR-165™ to RD cells (ATCC® CCL-136™).  ATCC® VR-165™ and ATCC® VR-1801 have not been compared for sequence of infectivity in primary cell culture and tissue culture.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and death
Recommended Host
RD cells (ATCC® CCL-136™)
Growth Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Recommendations for Infection: For best results, infection should be performed on a 80-90% confluent, 18-48 hour old cellular monolayer. Prepare dilution of virus in minimum amount of volume (e.g. 1 mL per 25 cm2), optimized for propagation (e.g. MOI 0.01-0.1 recommended). Wash monolayer with DPBS or serum free medium prior to inoculation. Adsorb virus dilution for 1-2 hours at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, rocking every 20-30 minutes to redistribute inoculum. End adsorption by adding virus growth medium.
Incubation: 2-4 days at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere, until CPE is progressed through 80% of the monolayer.
Effect on Host
CPE, cell rounding and death
