The Properties of a Polyoma Virus Mutant, ts3

  • R. Dulbecco
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 5)


I would like to describe briefly the properties of a polyoma virus mutant, ts­3, which we feel is probably related to the host range (hr) mutants described by Benjamin (this volume), which cannot transform. The results I am going to describe were obtained by Dr. Walter Eckhart and myself.
