Abstract

AT certain times, unexpectedly high yields of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) have been obtained from infected primary hamster embryo fibroblast (HEF) cell cultures,, which were later found to have been contaminated with mycoplasma. The work reported here indicates that this contamination can enhance VSV replication.
