J Gen Virol. 1979 Apr;43(1):257-9.

Established cell line sensitive to influenza C virus.


Various strains of influenza C virus grew productively in an established line of monkey kidney cells (LLCMK2) without prior adaptation. When trypsin was added to the medium, higher virus yields were obtained than in other cell cultures. All influenza C virus strains tested formed well defined plaques under the agar overlay medium containing trypsin. Infectivity determined by plaque assay in LLCMK2 cells was higher than that determined by amniotic inoculation of fertile hens' eggs.
