A group of temperature sensitive mutants of Moloney murine leukemia virus (MoMuLV) designated as ts1, ts7, and ts11 rapidly and invariably induce hind-limb paralysis ranging from 28 to 52 days postinjection of neonatal CFW/D mice. These temperature-sensitive mutants are defective in the processing of the precursor of the env protein, gPr80env in infected(More)
Dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA)-induced mouse mammary tumors characteristically contain an activated c-H-ras-1 gene with an A----T transversion in the 61st codon which is expressed as a rapidly migrating p21 c-H-ras. The role of the activated c-H-ras-1 locus in the initiation of mammary neoplasia was analysed by studying seven transplantable, DMBA-induced(More)
A temperature-sensitive mutant of Moloney murine leukemia virus TB (MoMuLV-TB), ts1, which is defective in intracellular processing of envelope precursor protein (Pr80env), also possesses the ability to induce hind-limb paralysis in infected mice. To investigate whether ts1 has acquired neurotropism and to determine to what extent it can replicate in the(More)
Treatment of proteose peptone elicited peritoneal macrophages from C3H/HeN mice or the macrophage cell line B6MP102 with a T-cell lymphokine preparation induces cytotoxicity for SV3T3 tumor cells. The Triton X-100 (TX-100) insoluble fractions from activated macrophages possessed kinase activity for an endogenous 53 kDa phosphoprotein (pp53) which was(More)
MuSV349 is a TB-cell line which produces infectious MuSV with little or no MuLV detectable by the XC assay. The apparent restriction of MuLV replication in MuSV349 cells was investigated. A replication-competent helper virus, with protein composition nearly identical to that of Mo-MuLV was isolated from the viruses produced by MuSV349 cells. This helper(More)
A cell line, TBSV7, that produces noninfectious murine sarcoma virus (MuSV) in the absence of helper MuLV was isolated from TB cells infected with the supernatant of MuSV349 cells. These noninfectious MuSV particles with "immature" C-type virus morphology contain a 2.2 X 10(6)-Da genomic RNA and an uncleaved 62,000-Da gag precursor protein (Pr62). Neither(More)
