Transformation of normal human melanocytes and non-malignant nevus cells by adenovirus 12-SV40 hybrid virus.


Infection of normal human melanocyte and nevus cultures with an adenovirus 12-Simian Virus 40 hybrid virus (Ad12-SV40) produced transformed cells that expressed SV40-T antigen. The Ad12-SV40 cells exhibited rapid cell proliferation to high cell densities and efficient growth in soft agar, but none of 15 transformed melanocyte and nevus cultures formed… (More)
