Throughout North America, up to 27 % of adult walleye (Pisces: Stizostedion vitreum) are seasonally affected by a dermal tumor termed walleye dermal sarcoma (WDS) which is associated with C-type retrovirus-like particles. A homogenate from 20 pooled tumors was fractionated by sucrose density gradient centrifugation and retrovirus particles were identified by electron microscopy in fractions with high reverse transcriptase (RT) activity. RNA was Isolated from a sucrose density gradient fraction… CONTINUE READING
