Abstract


A few SV4O-transformed human cells such as SV8O are potentially tumorigenic but rejected by athymic hosts. However, one cell line in this group (W118IVA-2) is known to be fully tumorigenic. Two clones were obtained after the injection of W118IVA-2, of which NW1SC1-1 was tumorigenic but NW18C1-2 was not in nude mice. As examined by Southern blot analysis, NW18C1-1 appears to contain more copy number of SV40 sequences than NW18C1-2 does. However, it was unable to demonstrate that this difference elicits the tumorigenicity in NW18C1-1 but not in NW18C1-2. Therefore, the latter clone was tested if it expresses SV40 early genes to produce large T as well as small t antigens using indirect immunofluorescent assay and immunoprecipitation. In addition, mouse NIH3T3 cells were transfected with the cellular DNA of NW1SC1-2 as well as that of NW18C1-1 to examine if the viral genomes in the clones can make the nontransformed cells to acquire malignant growth potential in vivo. The transformed cells expressed large T antigen and became tumorigenic. Thus, the transforming functions of NW1SC1-2 cell appers to be intact. These results clearly suggest that the inability of NW18C1-2 cell to form tumor in nude mice is not because they are inherently nontumorigenic. However, the possibility that the interaction of SV40 with its host differs in these clones can not he ruled out.
