Abstract

Proviral DNA has been demonstrated by in situ hybridization in foci of cells of a lamb infected with the RNA slow virus visna. A few of these cells also contain the major virion structural antigen p30. This restriction in virus gene expression in the infected animal provides a mechanism for persistence of virus in this chronic infection.
