RNA tumor virus production accompanies the transformed phenotype change induced by hydrocortisone hormone in rat glioma cells.

Abstract

ST1, a hydrocortisone-hypersensitive variant of the C6 rat glioma cell line, produced viral particles upon treatment with this glucocorticoid hormone. The virus was identified as type C RNA tumor virus by: a) morphology; b) 3H-uridine labelling; c) banding in sucrose density gradient; d) reverse transcriptase activity. Hydrocortisone uniquely shut off ST1 cells' transformed phenotype and turned on viral particles production.
