Although there is considerable interstrain variation, almost all clinical HCMV isolates have an extended cell tropism represented by their ability to form foci both in fibroblast and in endothelial cell cultures [26]. During further propagation in fibroblasts, the strict cell association is usually lost around passage number 10, presumably due to disruption of the replication inhibitor RL13. Disruption of RL13 allows the 34 Giada Frascaroli and Christian Sinzger resulting virus strains to infect a broad range of cell types in a cellfree mode for a limited number of passages until the abovementioned disruption of the UL128 locus occurs, restricting the host cell range [6, 26].
