Abstract

Retroviruses as possible causative factors of leukemias and lymphomas in men and animals are probably involved in the formation of CIC. To resolve this question, mice with lymphomas of different origin were examined as model systems for the presence of CIC and especially for the presence of CIC containing retroviral envelope proteins. Three different types of murine lymphomas have been examined for the presence of CIC, the spontaneous T-cell lymphomas of AKR mice, the X-ray induced T-cell lymphomas of C57B1/6 mice, and the spontaneous late B-type lymphomas of low leukemia mouse strains (BALB/c, X/Gf, CBA).
