    Infection by live attenuated retroviruses provides excellent protection from challenge with pathogenic viruses in several animal models, but little is known about which immune effectors are necessary for protection. We examined this using adoptive transfer experiments in the Friend virus mouse...

    The canine DLC 01 cell line derives from a lymph node of a dog with Sézary syndrome. The DLC 01 cell phenotype is CD4-, CD8+, CD45+, DQ+, similar to that of original cells after treatment with dimethylsulfoxide or phorbol myristate. Canine cutaneous T cell lymphoma are usually CD4-, CD8+ in...
