human foamy virus: further characterization, seroepidemiology, and relationship to chimpanzee foamy viruses.a foamy virus present in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma tissue was studied for a number of biological properties, including range of cellular susceptibility, growth curve, evolution of cytopathic effect in relation to cellular fusion and intracellular viral distribution, reverse transcriptase activity, and buoyant density. the virus was also studied immunologically and found to be closely related to the chimpanzee foamy viruses, particularly simian foamy virus type 6, with which it shares common ...1978206631
persistent asymptomatic infection of the laboratory mouse by simian foamy virus type 6: a new model of retrovirus latency.simian foamy virus (sfv) type 6, originally isolated from the kidney of a kuru-inoculated chimpanzee, has been adapted to produce an asymptomatic infection in swiss-webster white mice, with virus detected in the kidney and spleen for up to 10 months after intra-peritoneal inoculation, and the presence in some animals of complement-fixing, but not neutralizing, serum antibody. this first successful experimental infection of the laboratory mouse by a representative of the foamy virus group has spe ...19826285859
cell cycle dependence of foamy retrovirus common with oncoviruses but unlike the lentivirus human immunodeficiency virus type 1, foamy (spuma) viruses require host cell proliferation for productive infection. we show that human immunodeficiency virus type 1 replicates in rd-cd4 cells regardless of the growth arrest condition of the cells, while murine leukemia virus is unable to infect growth-arrested rd-cd4 cells or cells progressing through a partial cell cycle that includes s phase but not mitosis. human foamy virus, like murine l ...19957474157
