General description

Volume 165 of the Methods in Molecular Biology Series describes key techniques for experimentally detecting SV40 in human tumors, for exploiting its use in human gene therapy, and for studying its replication and its mechanisms of neoplastic transformation. Included are methods for growing SV40 and related viruses in tissue culture, for in vivo and in vitro replication and transcription of SV40 DNA, for use of retroviral vectors to express SV40 tumor antigens in cultured cells, and for use of transgenic mouse models based on the SV40 large T antigen.
