A Vero cell line was investigated as a suitable host system for primary isolation and cultivation of influenza A viruses. The efficiency of primary isolation for currently circulating (H3N2) strains was similar in Vero and MDCK cells. Of 72 egg-adapted strains investigated, 90.3% were detectable hy hemagglutinin (HA) titration in Vero cells after the first passage and 51.4% after the second. The amino acid sequences of the HA1 region of influenza A viruses isolated and passaged in Vero cells… CONTINUE READING
