An indirect immunofluorescence method produced a specific fluorescence in the cytoplasm of horse leukocyte cultures at 2, 3 and 4 days after infection with equine infectious anaemia virus. Occasionally the cell surface was also stained very brightly; this is consistent with the suggestion that replication takes place by budding from the cell surface [V.B. 40, abst. 2267]. The direct immunofluorescence technique did not produce any specific fluorescence.-AWJ.
