Plaque formation and purification of BK virus in cultured human urinary cells.

PMID:  6255084     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Primary human urinary cells support growth and plaque formation by papovavirus BK, permitting plaque purification of the virus. After plaquing, the virus forms uniform plaques and its DNA has a homogeneous restriction enzyme fragment profile. Support of BK replication as well as morphological and cultural characteristics suggest an epithelial origin for the cells.
