Some Recent Trends in Studies of Human Lymphoid Cells: B-Cells, Epstein-Barr Virus, and Transformation
In this brief review we will discuss some recent trends in work on regulatory mechanisms involved in the selective expression of differentiated markers in human B-cell lines as well as the types of controls involved in the expression and function of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated markers in human cells. A problem of special interest in this connection is the relation of the expression of EBV functions to the expression of “transformation”.
