Expression of the major internal protein and the envelope glycoprotein of murine C type viruses in focus derived lines of normal rat kidney cells infected with Kirsten murine sarcoma virus was measured by radioimmunoassay. Of the clones selected, which do not produce virus particles or the major viral structural protein, approximately half express the viral envelope glycoprotein at concentrations found in productively infected cells. Expression of the envelope glycoprotein did not appear to alter significantly the properties of the transformed cells in culture.
