PURPOSE To examine whether human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) could infect a human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell line, ARPE-19, in vitro and to investigate its regulation. METHODS A coculture system with ARPE-19 and irradiated cells of an HTLV-1-producing T-cell line, MT2 was used to determine the permissivity of RPE to HTLV-1 infection… CONTINUE READING
