Cell-mediated immunity directed against SV40 tumor-specific surface antigen(s) (TSSA) was detected in SV40-immunized non-inbred LVG:LAK hamsters with the use of a lymphocyte transformation assay. Sensitized spleen cells underwent a proliferative response in the presence of cells of an SV40-induced hamster sarcoma cell line (WF5-1) or the plasma membranes from these cells. KCl (3M) extracts of the plasma membranes of WF5-1 cells elicited such a lymphocyte proliferative response.
