Will an egg grown virus grow in tissue culture?

Growing in tissue culture requires several passages to adapt the virus to tissue culture and it can alter the virus genetically. Some influenza viruses will not adapt to tissue culture growth.

How should host cells be prepared for human metapneumovirus (hMPV) inoculation?
The hMPV isolates in BEI Resources are grown in LLC-MK2 Derivative cells (ATCC® CCL-7.1™). The cells should be adapted to low serum conditions by growing them in Opti-MEM Minimal Essential Medium supplemented with 2% fetal bovine serum and 2mM L-glutamine. It is also important to use low-passage num ...

How do you adapt an egg grown Influenza virus to cell culture?
If adapting influenza virus from one propagation host to another propagation host, it is important to passage the virus at least three times in the new host to allow for adaptation. Each passage should be tested for virus growth, and it may also be important to check the titer of each passage to ens ...

SARS Virus Now Available for Researchers
We have available for the first time in the BEI Resources catalog, two SARS Coronaviruses (SARS-CoV) derived from the Urbani strain. NR-18925 is produced from a recombinant infectious clone, icSARS-CoV. NR-15418 is the mouse-adapted strain, Urbani v2163, developed by Dr. Barnard as a lethal model fo ...
