The DNA of lymphomas from 12 AKXD recombinant inbred mouse strains was analyzed to determine the presence of somatically acquired ecotropic and mink cell focus-forming proviruses. Mink cell focus-forming proviruses were associated primarily with T-cel lymphomas, whereas ecotropic proviruses were associated with lymphomas of B-cell and myeloid lineages. A model based on the results is proposed to explain the variation in lymphoma types observed in different AKXD strains.
