Cell line CRFK, derived from kidney tissue of a normal domestic kitten, was initiated in 1964. With intermittent periods of storage in the frozen state, it has been grown in vitro during more than 200 passages, without apparent loss of susceptibility to selected viruses. Various herpesviruses and feline viruses belonging to differnet virus groups grow readily and with distinct, cytopathic features. The cells now grow as a smooth monolayer of epithelial-like cells; most have 37 chromosomes (2n−1… CONTINUE READING
