Five cell lines, SKG-I, SKG-II, SKG-IIIb, QG-U and QG-H derived from cervical carcinomas of Japanese patients, were examined for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA and the expression of viral mRNA. The DNA of HPV type 16 was shown to be linked covalently with SKG-IIb, QG-U and QG-H cell DNA, and HPV 18 DNA with SKG-I and SKG-II cell DNA.(More)
