Activation of endogenous C-type retroviruses by nuclear polyhedrosis viruses (NPV) was investigated in "in vitro" cell culture systems of four mammalian species: mouse, rat, monkey and man. Cells were treated with NPV, (isolated from larvae and insect cell cultures), NPV-DNA, C-type virus-activating chemicals (halogenated pyrimidine analogue) and chemical insecticides alone and in combination. C-type retroviruses were activated only in mouse cells and transformed rat cells by the halogenated… CONTINUE READING
