Rat primary T cells expressing HTLV-I tax gene transduced by a retroviral vector: in vitro and in vivo characterization.


We prepared a recombinant retroviral vector expressing the human T-lymphotropic virus type-I tax gene. Infection of WKA/H rat splenocytes yielded T-cell lines which proliferated continuously in media supplemented with exogenous interleukin-2 (IL-2) after the control cells ceased to grow. The phenotype of these cells closely resembled that of typical adult T… (More)
