The effect of an endogenous opiate, beta-endorphin, on the replication of HIV was investigated in brain perivascular microglia. Beta-endorphin enhanced the synthesis of p-24 antigen and transactivation of HIV promoter. Dialysed culture supernatants of endorphin-treated microglia re-activated latent HIV infection. These culture supernatants showed elevated(More)
We report here the development of a fatal lymphoproliferative disease in a common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) following inoculation of the Ag876 strain of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and of the tumor promoting agent 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). The marmoset showed antibodies against EBV capsid and early antigens (VCA, EA) but not against(More)
Four young strain III/J rabbits of both sexes were inoculated with a single dose of prototype partially purified Herpesvirus saimiri (HVS) via IV and IM routes. All inoculated animals had enlarged lymph nodes, and significant levels of antibodies to HVS early, late, and membrane antigens were detectable during the infection. The animals died or were killed(More)
