2-Deoxy-D-glucose uptake by chick embryo cells: a biochemical indicator of genetic susceptibility to RNA tumour viruses.

The enhanced glucose uptake by chick embryo cells as early as 72 h after infection with Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) was confirmed in this study to be an early indicator of cellular transformation. The glucose uptake of C/E BrL cells infected by various doses of BS-RSV of subgroup A showed that the relationship between the log-dose of virus and log-uptake was… CONTINUE READING
