Human T-cell leukemia virus-associated nuclear antigen (HTLV-NA).

Abstract

Replication-competent retroviruses are not known to encode or induce nuclear antigens that are immunogenic in their natural hosts. We describe here the detection of a human T-lymphotropic virus (type I and type II) associated nuclear antigen (HTLV-NA) by an anticomplement immunofluorescence assay. Antibody to HTLV-NA is detected in 18 of 68 (26%) HTLV-I seropositives.
