Genome sequence of the parainfluenza virus 5 strain that persistently infects AGS cells
MetadataShow full item record
We have sequenced the parainfluenza virus 5 strain that persistently infects the commonly used AGS human cell line without causing cytopathology. This virus is most closely related to human strains, indicating that it may have originated from biopsy material or from laboratory contamination during generation of the cell line.
