Identification of Marek's disease virus nuclear antigen in latently infected lymphoblastoid cells.

Abstract

A new Marek's disease virus (MDV) nuclear antigen (MDNA) was identified in two MDV-transformed T-lymphoblastoid cell lines, MKT-1 and MSB-1, derived from chickens bearing tumors induced by MDV. This MDNA was not detected in MSB-1 cells maintained in iododeoxyuridine, which activates the latent MDV genome. Moreover, it was not found in chicken embryo… (More)
