Does anybody know if vaccinia virus can infect mouse cells? I am
thinking of mouse fibroblastic cell lines like L cells or SC1 cells.
The ATCC catalog mention that the recommended cell lines are from
human or simian origin but since this virus can be used as a
vector (I know that these vectors have been used in dog MDCK cells)
I suppose that it has a wider host range. I am sure that somebody
has tried using mouse cells at one point.
I will appreciate if somebody has this information.
Thanks in advance
