  • a Concentrated MLV(Ebola) was used for these infections. In the experiments shown, all lymphoid cells were infected with 5 × 105 IU of MLV(Ebola) as measured on 293T cells. A titer of 0 in this column indicates that no cells stained for β-galactosidase activity after 2 days of incubation with that amount of MLV(Ebola).
