Abstract

A B-lymphoblastoid cell line (Ts-B) was established from lymph nodes of an apparently healthy cynomolgus monkey. The cells were demonstrated to contain Epstein-Barr virus-related antigens. Moreover, herpesvirus particles were found in the cells by electron microscopy. The cell-free culture medium transformed lymphocytes of cynomolgus rhesus monkeys, and of Japanese monkeys.
