Type C particles released from cultured murine myeloma MOPC-315 cells were significantly protected when the purification steps were all conducted in the presence of 10% chicken egg yolk fluid. The yolk fluid also slowed down the inactivation of viral particles during incubation at 37°C and enabled full recovery of viral particles through several cycles of freezing and thawing. The purification of viral particles in the presence of yolk fluid did not affect the capability of the viral DNA polymerase to reverse-transcribe the virion RNA in vitro, nor that of the viral RNA to act as a functional template.
