Establishment of a lymphoblastoid cell line and isolation of an Epstein-Barr-related virus of gorilla origin.

Abstract

A B-lymphoid cell line was established from a normal gorilla. The cells contained Epstein-Barr virus-related antigens, and herpesvirus particles were demonstrated by electron microscopy. DNA-DNA reassociation kinétics revealed 30 to 40% hybridization to Epstein-Barr virus with 50 genomes per cell. Examination of the viral nuclear antigen with gorilla sera showed this to be a unique isolate termed Herpesvirus gorilla. H. gorilla transformed gibbon B-lymphocytes in vitro.
