virus-transformed cell

vi·rus-·trans·formed cell

a cell that has been genetically changed to a tumor cell, the change being subsequently transmitted to all descendent cells; cells transformed by oncogenic RNA viruses continue to produce virus in high concentration without being killed; DNA tumor virus-transformed cells develop (along with other changes) tumor-associated antigens and rarely produce virus.

(vī'rŭs-trans-fōrmd' sel)
A cell that has been genetically changed to a tumor cell, the change being subsequently transmitted to all descendent cells; those cells transformed by oncornaviruses continue to produce virus in high concentration without being killed; DNA tumor virus-transformed cells develop (along with other changes) tumor-associated antigens and rarely produce virus.
