ASV Strains

Prague strain (PR-A) and Schmidt-Ruppin strain (SR-A) of subgroup A, B77 subgroup C


quail embryonic cells


established quail cell line transformed by the Bryan high titer strain of Rous sarcoma virus, producing non-infectious (gp85 negative) particles (Friis, 1972)


cell line established from a methylcholanthrene (MC) induced quail fibrosarcoma, showing the properties of transformed cells


cell line established from a MC induced quail tumor, showing no transformation parameters
