Abstract P_03 titled: XMRV productively infects primary antigen-presenting cells, authored by the NCI, gives more insight into reservoirs for the virus, suggesting thatin contrast to the aforementioned study on EBV transformed B cell lines
and concluding thatThe most interesting part of all this is perhaps the following comparison between MLV and XMRV:
Abstract P_03 titled: XMRV productively infects primary antigen-presenting cells, authored by the NCI, gives more insight into reservoirs for the virus, suggesting that
"T and B cells present in the peripheral blood are not the major reservoir for XMRV"
and concluding that
"XMRV can infect primary antigen-presenting cells" such as monocyte-derived macrophages and monocyte-derived dendritic cells as well as freshly isolated pDC....demonstrating that these three cell types were infected with XMRV and were producing infectious virus.
"Since gammaretroviruses including MLV have been shown to be unable to infect terminally-differentiated, non-dividing cells including macrophages and dendritic cells, we are currently investigating whether the infection observed represents the infection of a small number of dividing cells in these cultures, or whether XMRV is not subject to the same restriction as MLV in these cells."
