Human metapneumovirus (HMPV), TN/91-320 was isolated from a human specimen collected in Tennessee, USA, in 1991.

Additional information for HMPV, TN/91-320 is available at the Virus Pathogen Resource. The complete genome of the TN/91-320 isolate has been sequenced (GenBank: KC403972).

Human metapneumovirus was first isolated from young children with acute respiratory tract disease in the Netherlands in 2001, and subsequently recognized as a major cause of respiratory illness in infants and children worldwide. Retrospective serological analyses indicated that the virus had been circulating in humans for at least half a century. Two serotypes of HMPV have been defined, with two genetic lineages within each serotype. TN/91-320 is classified as a type B2 virus.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Macaca mulatta kidney epithelial cells (LLC-MK2 Derivative; ATCC ® CCL-7.1™) infected with HMPV, TN/91-320.
