The majority of currently identified simian foamy virus (SFV)-infected Cameroonian and Gabonese individuals harbor SFV from the gorilla lineage. We constructed an indicator cell line for the quantification of gorilla SFVs, in which the U3 sequence of a gorilla SFV directs the expression of the β-galactosidase protein. The gorilla foamy virus activated(More)
Simian foamy viruses (SFVs) are efficiently transmitted from non-human primates to humans. Despite their persistence , neither pathogenic effects nor secondary transmission have been reported, suggesting an efficient immune control of this retrovirus in human population. Here, we study the neutralizing activity in the plasma of SFV-infected people living in(More)
