Abortive Transformation by Polyoma Virus

  • Michael Stoker
Part of the Milestones in Current Research book series (MCR)


Exposure of hamster cells to large doses of polyoma virus is known to result in permanent transformation of a small proportion of cells. Experiments with cells in suspension now suggest that a much higher proportion of infected cells undergoes a temporary change, in which at least one characteristic of transformation is acquired for a few cell divisions and then lost again. Thissuggests that acquisition of the transformed phenotypes does not depend upon stable integration of the viral genome.
