Transformation of Balb 3T3 cells by the BNLF-1 gene of Epstein-Barr virus.


The BNLF-1 protein is the only non-nuclear Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) encoded protein that has been detected in B-lymphocytes immortalized by EBV. We demonstrate that the BNLF-1 gene induces anchorage-independent growth and tumorigenic transformation of the murine cell-line, Balb/3T3. This demonstration extends the earlier observation that the BNLF-1 gene can… (More)
