Infectivity titration of guinea-pig inclusion conjunctivitis agent in irradiated McCoy cells.


PMID 986419

Abstract

Estimation of the infectivity of the agent of guinea-pig inclusion conjunctivitis for irradiated McCoy cells, assayed as inclusion-forming units, was influenced by the age of cells after irradiation, the maturation time of the inclusions, the centrifugal force and the centrifugation temperature. Agent passaged through irradiated McCoy cells or guinea-pig conjunctivae showed a greater capacity to infect irradiated McCoy cells without centrifuging than agent grown in a chick embryo. The nature of the change and the mechanism of infectivity enhancement by centrifuging are discussed.
