Pseudotypes of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) were produced by normal hamster cells abortively infected with HCMV and superinfected by VSV at a certain stage of abortive HCMV infection. Hamster cells transformed in vitro by HCMV (87-TRH-5 and CX-90-3B cells) also produce VSV (HCMV) pseudotypes after infection of the cells by VSV, but the same cells after passage in vivo (TSC-1, TSC-2 cells) do not.
