Reverse transcriptase activity and particle production in B lymphoblastoid cell lines established from lymphocytes of patients with multiple sclerosis

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

We have established spontaneously formed B lymphoblastoid cell lines from long-term cultured peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNCs) from multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. The MS cell lines actively produce retrovirus-like particles as well as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Using three different variations of the highly sensitive polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assays for the detection of reverse transcriptase (RT) activity, we have verified the retroviral origin of the retrovirus-like particles that are produced in very low amounts by the MS cell lines.
