Recombinant Epstein-Barr viruses (EBVs) were made with mutated latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) genes that express only the LMP1 amino-terminal cytoplasmic and six transmembrane domains (MS187) or these domains and the first 44 amino acids of the 200-residue LMP1 carboxy-terminal domain (MS231). After infection of primary B lymphocytes with virus stocks having small numbers of recombinant virus and large numbers of P3HR-1 EBV which is transformation defective but wild type (WT) for LMP1, all… CONTINUE READING
