Abstract

A culture of P388 murine lymphoblastoid cells has been shown to contain type C oncornavirus-like particles budding at the plasma membrane. Occasionally intracytoplasmic type A and immature type B particles were also observed by electron microscope techniques. The discovery of oncornavirus-like particles in the P388 cell line increases the utility of this neoplastic system for detecting potential antineoplastic agents.
