Abstract

SUMMARY

Primary human urinary cells support growth and plaque formation by papovavirus BK, permitting plaque purification of the virus. After plaquing, the virus forms uniform plaques and its DNA has a homogeneous restriction enzyme fragment profile. Support of BK replication as well as morphological and cultural characteristics suggest an epithelial origin for the cells.
