suitability of epstein-barr virus dna obtained from superinfected raji cells for complementary rna hybridization studies.a method was established to obtain a high yield of epstein-barr virus (ebv) dna for nucleic acid hybridization studies on latent virus dna in transformed cells. superinfection of raji cells with ebv concentrated from hri cell cultures produced a 600-fold higher yield of ebv dna than direct isolation of ebv from hri cell cultures. the virus dna thus prepared from raji cells superinfected with ebv was radioisotopically and spectrophotometrically pure and served as a satisfactory template for the p ...1977190349
antibodies to the r component of epstein-barr virus-induced early antigens in burkitt's lymphoma exceeding in titer antibodies to epstein-barr capsid antigen.african patients with burkitt's lymphoma (bl) may show antibodies to the r (restricted) component of the epstein-barr (eb) virus-induced early antigens that appear to match in titer the antibodies to eb viral capsid antigen (vca) as determined with the aid of acetone-fixed smears of eb3 cells. virus-producing eb3 cells, however, contain the r component as well as vca so that the correct anti-vca titers in such cases remain in doubt. since the r component, but not vca, was found to be denatured b ...1977190417
the owl monkey (aotus trivirgatus) as an animal model for viral diseases and oncologic studies.the owl monkey (aotus trivirgatus) has been shown to be an excellent model for studies of oncogenic and non-oncogenic viruses. studies at this institution have been primarily concerned with herpesvirus saimiri, the epstein-barr virus, h tamarinus, and h simplex. these studies have shown that h saimiri is oncogenic when inoculated into primates, that the malignancy induced by h saimiri can be naturally transmitted from the squirrel monkey to the owl monkey, that in vitro pathogenicity of h saimir ...1976190472

evidence for an etiologic relation of the epstein-barr virus to human malignancies.studies on virus-induced animal tumors have provided indirect approaches to a search for viruses causing human malignancies. epstein-barr virus (ebv), the cause of infectious mononucleosis, served to illustrate the usefulness of these approaches in linking ebv with burkitt's lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. despite its demonstrated intimate association with these tumors the role of ebv in their causation remains uncertain. while a passenger role seems excluded, it cannot be decided whether ...1977190497
primary epstein-barr virus infections in children.during a serioepidemiologic survey of a community, 13 (6.2%) of 209 children were found to be experiencing a current or recent primary epstein-barr virus (ebv) infection. the sera contained elevated antibody titers to viral capsid antigen of ebv, antibodies to early antigen (ea) of ebv, and specific igm. the frequency of primary infections was highest in the first decade of life. the primary ebv infections were usually asymptomatic. the antibody to ea was directed predominantly to the r componen ...1977190581

humoral and cellular immunity to ebv and lymphoid cell line antigens in human lymphoma.although elevated antibody levels to the epstein-barr virus (ebv) have been reported in a number of lympho-proliferative neoplasms, it has not been possible to determine whether these antibodies were the result of a specific response to an oncogenic agent (ebv), whether they were a non-specific humoral compensation for depressed cell-mediated immunity (cmi), or whether a different mechanism was responsible. we have previously shown in a group of lymphoma patients that depressed cellular immunity ...1975191366
epstein-barr virus (ebv)-associated antibody patterns in relation to the deficiency of cell-mediated immunity in patients with hodgkin's disease.sera from unselected and untreated patients with hodgkin's disease (hd) were examined for antibodies to epstein-barr viral (ebv) capsid antigens (vca). delayed cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions were carried out with purified tuberculoprotein (ppd). highly purified blood lymphocytes of the same patients were studied morphologically and classified for cell surface markers. incorporation of 14c-thymidine was used as a measure of spontaneous dna synthesis and dna synthesis after exposure to diffe ...1975191367
immunogenetic aspects of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (npc) iii. hl-a type as a genetic marker of npc predisposition to test the hypothesis that epstein-barr virus is an etiological factor in npc.hl-a typing of 144 npc patients and 236 controls revealed an increased frequency of 1st locus hl-42 (relative risk = 2.24) and an increased frequency of unidentified antigens at the 2nd locus (relative risk = 2.60) in the npc patients. hl-a2 and the 2nd locus "blank" appeared to act together (hl-a2 blank haplotype) in determining npc risk in highest-risk cantonese, whereas in relatively lower-risk non-cantonese chinese (hokkiens, teochews) they appeared to act independently. only the "blank" had ...1975191368

mechanisms of escape from immune surveillance.the escape from immune rejection is, like the development of drug resistance in microorganisms, a multi-pathway process. selection favors the phenotype, i.e., the cell that can grow in spite of the immune rejection process, not the underlying mechanism. experimental evidence documents the roles of host immunosuppression (genetic or environmental), immunoresistance at the cellular level, "sneaking through" (i.e., growth of a tumor to irreversible size prior to the mobilization of an appropriate i ...1976193018

cell surface markers on epithelial-burkitt hybrid cells superinfected with epstein-barr virus.attempts were made to superinfect two epithelial-burkitt hybrid cell lines, designated d98/hr-1 and d98/raji, with epstein-barr virus (ebv) and to investigate the expression of some cell surfacr markers including histocompatibility antigens, and the presence of b-cell markers, such as receptors for the third complement component and for monkey red blood cells. successful superinfection of d98/hr-1 cells with ebv was made evident by the expression of early antigen and, to a lesser extent, virus c ...1977193641
smooth muscle antibody in burkitt's lymphoma and in nasopharyngeal carcinoma.smooth muscle antibodies (sma) with specificity for actin, were found with a higher frequency in sera from burkitt's lymphoma (bl) and nasopharyngeal carcinoma (npc) patients than in sera from matched controls. no correlation could be found between sma and anti-epstein-barr virus (ebv) antibody titres. there was no parallelism, in individual sera, between the finding of sma and the occurrence of cold lymphocytotoxins, aother antibody activity found with an abnormally high frequency among bl and ...1977193662
inhibition of the in vitro outgrowth of epstein-barr virus-transformed lymphocytes by thymus-dependent lymphocytes from infectious mononucleosis patients.known numbers of thymus-dependent (t) lymphocytes, obtained by positive selection from the blood of acute infectious mononucleosis (im) patients and from control donors, were added to target cultures of foetal mononuclear cells within 0-7 days of exposure of the target cells to one of a range of doses of epstein-barr (eb) virus. the subsequent outgrowth of virus-transformed foetal cells was markedly inhibited by the presence in the cultures of im-derived t cells, whilst similar numbers of t cell ...1977193663
neutralizing ebv-specific iga in throat washings of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (npc) patients.throat washings from 26 nasopharyngeal carcinoma (npc) patients from hong kong and tunisia were studied for the presence of transforming ebv. only six (23%) were found positive which led to the hypothesis of a neutralizing factor in such salivas. the search for ebv-specific antibodies showed that npc saliva contained neutralizing vca and ea iga (54 and 27% respectively) and vca and ea igg (73 and 54% respectively). both transforming and non-transforming throat washings contained virus particles ...1977193801
epstein-barr virus-specific rna. ii. analysis of polyadenylated viral rna in restringent, abortive, and prooductive infections.the complexity and abundance of epstein-barr (ebv)-specific rna in cell cultures restringently, abortively, and productively infected with ebv has been analyed by hybridization of the infected cell rna with purified viral dna. the data indicate the following. (i) cultures containing productively infected cells contain viral rna encoded by at least 45% of ebv dna, and almost all of the species of viral rna are present in the polyadenylated and polyribosomal rna fractions. (ii) restringently infec ...1977194056
circular epstein-barr virus genomes of reduced size in a human lymphoid cell line of infectious mononucleosis origin.circular epstein-barr virus (ebv) dna molecules have been purified and characterized from a human lymphoid cell line derived from a case of heterophile antibody-positive, blood transfusion-induced infectious mononucleosis, 883l. the circular ebv dna in three cell lines obtained by transformation of human umbilical cord blood leukocytes with a strain of ebv originally derived from 883l was also studied. as estimated from sedimentation velocity data and electron microscopy, the circular ebv dna mo ...1977194059
