Abstract

SUMMARY

Six of 16 meningiomas tested in early subcultures by indirect immunofluorescence showed SV40 T-antigen. Two different antisera specific for T-antigen were used. One serum gave a positive reaction with six tumours and the other with only two. In one T-antigen positive meningioma, the typical nuclear fluorescence changed, beginning with the second subculture, into an unusual brilliant granular pattern irregularly distributed over the nuclei. In six meningiomas, a specific chromosome aberration (monosomy G 22) was established. However, up to now, no clear correlation between karyotype and T-antigen expression could be found: cells from three meningiomas with positive reactions had normal karyotypes, whereas those from three tumours with typical chromosome loss showed no T-antigen.
