Mice of genotypes Sl/Sl$^{\text{d}}$, Sl/+, and Sl$^{\text{d}}$/+ (but not Sl$^{\text{T}}$/Sl$^{\text{T}}$ or Sl$^{\text{T}}$/+) were resistant to spleen focus-forming virus. The "environment" in which hemopoietic target cells for this virus develop was not conducive for infection or focus formation, or both, but the target cells were not altered directly. The same genes appear to regulate hemopoiesis and leukemogenic transformation.
