Abstract
Recent experiments with mouse mammary tumor virus indicate that expression of a virally encoded superantigen by B cells and its subsequent recognition by T cells are essential steps for amplification of infection and virus transmission. Preliminary results suggest that superantigens may also be expressed during retroviral infection in humans.
