While we're on the subject of retrovirus vectors, could we accumulate a list
of cells/cell lines that various viruses infect and those that are

For example, the amphitropic line used most often with the Dusty
Miller vectors produces virus that infect a wide variety of cell.  These 
I would like to design vectors that infect some less common cell lines - 
Cf2Th (canine thymus)
EREp (rabbit embryonic epithelial)
BLAC-20 (bovine leukocyte adherent)

Any guesses on whether these will infect?
