Herpesvirus ateles (HVA) can transform lymphocytes from certain nonhuman primates, leading to established lymphoid lines. We have found that HVA adsorbs preferentially to the T lymphocytes (E-rosette-forming cells) of marmoset monkeys and that DNA synthesis is induced within 2-6 days after infection.
