Generation of herpes virus saimiri-transformed T-cell lines from macaques is restricted by reactivation of simian spuma viruses.

Abstract

Herpes virus saimiri (HVS) transforms human T-cells in vitro to stable growth. These T-cell lines retain their immunological characteristics of the parent cells and do not release infectious virus. Recently, lymphocytes of Old World monkeys were efficiently transformed by HVS. In parallel to these studies we initiated transformation experiments by infecting… (More)
