Abstract: The derivation of specifically mutated Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) recombinants is dependent on strategies to identify, enumerate, and clone infected B lymphocytes. In recent experiments, EBV recombinants containing a positive selection marker were identified and cloned in B-lymphoma (BL) cells infected and then plated under selective conditions (F. Wang, A. Marchini, and E. Kieff, J. Virol. 65:1701-1709, 1991). We now use BL cells, for the first time, as hosts for assaying and cloning otherwise isogenic EBV reco…
