Abstract: Two interleukin-2-dependent feline CD4-positive and CD8-negative cell lines, MYA-1 and the newly established FeL-039, were used as host cells for infection with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). All FIV strains used, the Petaluma strain and several new isolates, were highly cytopathic to MYA-1. In contrast, the kinetics of FIN replication in FeL-039 differed greatly depending on the strain tested, i.e., noninfectious strain, highly cytopathic strain, and less cytopathic strain producing a persistent state f…
