Abstract

Transformed baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells were tested for surface antigens by an immunocytoadhesion method. The cells were sensitized with rabbit antisera to cell clones transformed by polyoma or by BK virus and then rosetted with erythrocytes coated with antibody to rabbit immunoglobulin. These antisera detected common antigens on BHK cells transformed by either of three papovaviruses, polyoma, BK, or SV40, but apparently not on normal BHK cells.
