Few laboratory strains of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) can infect Crandell feline kidney cells (an epithelial-type of cells), however, most primary isolates are T-lymphotropic. T-lymphotropic FIV requires both feline CD134 (an activation marker of helper T-lymphocytes) and CXCR4 (a chemokine receptor) in infection as primary and secondary receptors, respectively. Using feline T-lymphoblastoid cell lines, titration of primary FIV isolates was carried out, however the titration assay was laborious and time-consuming. In this study, using G355-5 cells (a feline astrocyte-derived cell line) transduced with a cDNA of feline CD134 as target cells, an assay system was developed to quantitate primary FIV isolates. With a previous method using a feline T-lymphoblastoid cell line (MYA-1 cells) highly sensitive to FIV, it took 12 days to complete the assay, however, it took only 2 days with the new method. The FIV-infected cells became in a state of persistent infection, producing a large amount of FIV, indicating that the cells will be useful for propagation of T-lymphotropic FIV strains.
