Analysis of the genomic termini of Epstein-Barr virus can provide valuable insight into the cofactor role of EBV in the development of B cell lymphomas and lymphoproliferative disease. We report EBV genomic findings in pathologic specimens from 10 patients who developed lymphoma or lymphoproliferative disease after renal or bone marrow transplantation.(More)
MoIt-3 and MoIt-4 are T-ceIl lines originally derived in 1971 from a patient with T-ceIl acute lymphoblastic leukemia. An unusual T-cell antigen receptor ‘y-chain gene (Tgamma) rearrangement detected by Southern blot analysis of MoIt-4 prompted an in-depth study of the immunophenotype and karyotype of both cell lines. Molt-3 and Molt-4 had immunophenotypic(More)
We report an acute T-lymphoblastic leukemia with a predominantly mature CD3+ CD7+ WT31+ phenotype that was induced to differentiate into different cell lineages by various recombinant human growth factors. In the presence of IL-3 or GM-CSF, the leukemic cells gave rise to myeloid and monocytic cells including terminally differentiated, partially functional,(More)
Endogenous retroviral sequences have been identified in the genomes of several species including humans. Proteins similar to those of primate endogenous viruses have been found on the surface of various malignant cells in man. To further define this role, we have used a primate retrovirus DNA from the Baboon Endogenous Virus to probe a human genomic library(More)
Molt-3 and Molt-4 are T-cell lines originally derived in 1971 from a patient with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. An unusual T-cell antigen receptor gamma-chain gene (T-gamma) rearrangement detected by Southern blot analysis of Molt-4 prompted an in-depth study of the immunophenotype and karyotype of both cell lines. Molt-3 and Molt-4 had(More)
We describe the development of Epstein-Barr-virus (EBV)-related lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) in the recipient of a histocompatible bone marrow transplant (BMT). Although this rare complication is more common in recipients of mismatched bone marrow, several distinguishing features of our case may have contributed to the development of LPD in the(More)
The gamma gene product is a component of the second T-cell receptor. We report a new case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia bearing a CD3+ CD4- CD5+ CD7+ CD8- WT31- immunophenpotype that expresses the gamma peptide. Immunoprecipitation studies using an anti Cγ heteroantisera showed two different bands of 40 and 60 Kd. Southern analysis revealed Cγ1(More)
