Abstract

Activated myc genes are found in a broad variety of spontaneous malignancies in rodents and humans as well: Burkitt Lymphoma (Klein and Klein 1985; Croce et al. 1984; Dalla-Favera et al. 1985; this volume), neuroblastoma (Schwab 1985), small cell lung carcinoma (Nau et al. 1985), mouse plasmacytoma (Klein and Klein 1985; this volume) and rat immunocytoma (Pear, this volume).
