Oligonucleotide probes representing distinct intracisternal A-particle (IAP) subfamilies were derived from the long terminal repeats (LTRs) of transcriptionally active IAP genes in normal mouse cells. These probes were used to examine the distribution of IAP proviral elements in the genomic DNA of several inbred mouse strains. Each oligonucleotide probe(More)
Using a 3H-cDNA for RNA sequences specifically associated with murine intracisternal type A particles, we have found multiple copies of this information in high molecular weight nuclear DNA from tissues of both Mus muscules (BALB/c, NIH Swiss, A/Jax and feral) and Mus cervicolor. Reiteration frequencies varied from 1050-1800 per haploid genome, except that(More)
DNA-PK is a DNA-activated serine/threonine protein kinase capable of phosphorylating a number of nuclear DNA-binding proteins. Purified human DNA-PK has two subunits, a 350-kDa polypeptide, Prkdc, which binds ATP and is presumed to contain the catalytic site, and the Ku autoantigen which mediates DNA binding and activation. Previous studies have shown that(More)
Sequences related to mouse intracisternal A-particle (IAP) genes have been isolated from rat and Syrian hamster gene libraries as recombinants in lambda phage. The sequences are moderately reiterated in both these genomes but their sequence organization in the hamster genome is different from that in the rat genome. Restriction analysis and electron(More)
The 7,095-nucleotide sequence of a mouse genomic intracisternal A-particle (IAP) element, MIA14, is reported. MIA14 is known to be colinear with IAP 35S RNA and to contain functional long terminal repeats. Its internal genetic organization was determined by comparisons with a homologous Syrian hamster element and the related retroviruses simian retrovirus 1(More)
The genome of Mus musculus contains multiple copies (500 -1000) of DNA sequences related to the 35S RNA of intracisternal type A particles (IAPs). Using labeled IAP RNA as a probe in blot-hybridization experiments, we have identified a characteristic electrophoretic pattern of reactive fragments generated by restriction endonuclease cleavage of mouse DNA.(More)
Intracisternal A-particle (IAP) proviral elements are moderately reiterated and widely dispersed in the mouse genome. Oligonucleotide probes have been derived from three distinctive IAP element subfamilies (LS elements) that are transcriptionally active in normal mouse B- and T-cells. In HindIII digests, LS element-specific oligonucleotides each react with(More)
