Measles virus (MV), Edmonston was isolated from the blood of a human in the acute phase of typical measles in Massachusetts, USA, in 1954.

NR-44362 was derived from BEI Resources NR-3847, a virus preparation from NIAID's historical repository. NR-3847 was passaged four times in MRC-5 cells (ATCC ® CCL-171™) to produce NR-44362. The complete genome of the Edmonston strain has been sequenced (GenBank: K01711).

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from fetal human lung fibroblast cells (ATCC ® CCL-171™) infected with MV, Edmonston.

Additional information and tools are available at ViPR (Virus Pathogen Resource).
