Cytogenetic studies were performed on 11 established murine thymoma or peripheral lymphoma cell lines induced by a thymotropic Abelson virus. In eight cell lines a trisomy 5 was present, whereas, two cell lines had a normal karyotype like fresh tumor cells. In the last cell line a trisomy 11 resulting from a t(5;11) was observed. The origin of this nonrandom chromosome abnormality is briefly discussed.
