Abstract

Summary

Bovine adenovirus type 3 (BAV-3), strain WBR-1, quantitatively transforms hamster embryo carcass cells with a maximum efficiency of 4.7 × 10 p.f.u./focus-forming units (f.f.u.). This frequency is significantly inhibited by the presence of 1.8 m of Ca. The transformed cells are highly tumourigenic in hamsters and possess T- and tumour-specific transplantation antigens. BAV-3 is one of the most oncogenic of the adenoviruses and an ideal model virus for the study of transformation.
