Abstract

The hamster polyomavirus (HaPV) induces either hair follicle epitheliomas or lymphomas in either Z3 or HaP respectively, Syrian hamsters. In the lymphomas specifically deleted “lymphoma-type” (lt) HaPV genomes are accumulated. In the present study the temporal pattern of generation of HaPV (lt) DNA was investigated in context of the development of lymphomas in neonatally infected HaP hamsters. The generation of HaPV (lt) DNA was first detectable during the postnatal phase of high level replication of viral DNA in hemopoietic organs (at 7 days post infection), thus clearly preceding the development of overt lymphoma. A variety of HaPV (lt) DNA species is generated in lymphoid cells, but usually only one of them is accumulated to high amounts in lymphoma cells. Furthermore, the pattern of HaPV (lt) and wild-type (wt) DNA was studied in normal and tumor tissues of tumor-bearing hamsters as well as in tumor-free hamsters. In tumor-bearing hamsters predominantly HaPV (lt) DNA species were found in the infected tissues, while HaPV (wt) DNA was detected rarely and only in tumor-free tissues. In contrast, in tissues of tumor-free hamsters HaPV (wt) DNA prevailed over HaPV (lt) DNA species.
