Virus particles morphologically similar to the known oncogenic RNA-type viruses have been isolated and cultured from a spontaneous mammary carcinoma of a rhesus monkey. The virus was initially isolated by cocultivation of tumor tis sues with monkey embryonic cell cultures but was later found to be transmissible as a cell-free filtrate. The virus is approximately 110 m^t in diameter and has a buoyant density between 1.14 and 1.16. Preliminary hostrange studies thus far have shown the virus to… CONTINUE READING
