Abstract

Cells of spleen and thymus from mice infected with Rauscher leukaemia virus were cultivated in vitro. A new cell type repeatedly grew out of this cell line. Electron-optically, RNA--viruses and DNA-viruses were found within the new lines, but there was no cell containing both viruses at the same time. According to experimental results in rats, the DNA virus is polyoma-like. The importance the presence of two different viruses within the same cell is discussed.
