DNA isolated from biopsies of endemic Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) from New Guinea was analysed for the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) sequences using the polymerase chain reaction. Primers were designed to amplify sequences within the Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen (EBNA) 1 and 2 genes. These analyses detected the EBNA1 sequence in all the biopsies studied. Additional sets of primers directed against the EBNA2 gene were used in order to categorize the EBV strains as A-type or B-type (39… CONTINUE READING
