This study examines some technical aspects of the transmission to and permanent adaptability in continuous cell lines of wild HIV-1 isolates. Three cell systems (the lymphocytic cell lines Molt-3 and H-9 and the monocytoid cell line U-937) and two transmission protocols (cell to cell and cell-free) were used. Two different replicative behaviours were observed among isolates efficiently transmitted: a) transmissibility but not adaptability (consisting in a limited length of viral replication); aa) transmissibility and adaptability (consisting in a stable and long term virus production). The second type of replication was confined to viruses from patients with severe immunodeficiency. Technical and viral factors can affect the rate of transmissibility and adaptability: the modality of infection (cell to cell transmission appeared to be the most efficient) and the tropism of the virus (some viruses could infect only one T cell line).
