The clone C6/36 was derived from A. albopictus cells as described by Igarashi A., Isolation of a Singh's Aedes albopictus cell clone sensitive to Dengue and Chikungunya viruses.( J. Gen. Virol. 40: 531-544, 1978. PubMed: 690610.) The cell line is used for the cultivation of flaviviruses, and is available from the ATCC collection (ATCC® CRL-1660™).
