A recombinant murine retrovirus for simian virus 40 large T cDNA transforms mouse fibroblasts to anchorage-independent growth.

Abstract

A recombinant murine retrovirus containing the intact cDNA sequence for the simian virus 40 (SV40) large T antigen (T) was constructed by using the pZIPNeo SV(X)1 vector. Psi 2 packaging cells were then transfected, and G418-resistant clones were used to generate helper-free viral stocks. NIH 3T3 mouse fibroblasts infected by the recombinant T cDNA retrovirus were selected fro G418 resistance. Such cultures synthesized authentic SV40 T and were transformed to anchorage-independent growth at high efficiency. Therefore, this vector has allowed the study of the transformation properties of T under conditions of neutral drug selection and in the absence of SV40 small t antigen.
