Abstract

In this study we aim to use retroviral Rel expression plasmids to infect lymphocytes isolated from normal dogs and neoplastic lymphoblasts isolated from dogs with high-grade B cell lymphoma and document appropriate Rel and/or Bcl-2 protein expression. These experiments will provide proof of principle that Rel expression plasmids can infect and replicate in canine lymphoid cells and support our long-term goal of establishing pertinent canine lymphoma cell lines.
