Defective DNA repair in cells with human T-cell leukemia/bovine leukemia viruses: role of tax gene.
BACKGROUND Human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV)/bovine leukemia virus (BLV) group retroviruses, which cause hematopoietic cancers, encode a unique protein, Tax, involved in the transformation ofExpand

Humans have antibodies reactive with Bovine leukemia virus.
Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is an oncogenic retrovirus that commonly infects cattle and causes B cell leukosis in 1-5% of infected cattle. BLV-infected cells are present in marketed beef and dairyExpand

Bovine Leukemia Virus DNA in Human Breast Tissue
Bovine leukemia virus (BLV), a deltaretrovirus, causes B-cell leukemia/lymphoma in cattle and is prevalent in herds globally. A previous finding of antibodies against BLV in humans led us to examineExpand

Are viruses associated with human breast cancer? Scrutinizing the molecular evidence
The three viruses most studied as possible causes of human breast cancer are mouse mammary tumor virus-like sequences (MMTV-LS), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and oncogenic (high risk) types of humanExpand

Natural genetic variations in bovine leukemia virus envelope gene: possible effects of selection and escape.
Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is an oncogenic virus widespread in cattle. It belongs to the genus Deltaretrovirus of the family Retroviridae along with human and simian T-lymphotropic viruses. Here weExpand

Cell line cross-contamination: How aware are mammalian cell culturists of the problem and how to monitor it?
SummaryHeLa was the first human cell line established (1952) and became one of the most frequently used lines because of its hardiness and rapid growth rate. During the next two decades, theExpand

In Vivo Protein Binding and Functional Analysis ofcis-Acting Elements in the U3 Region of the Bovine Leukemia Virus Long Terminal Repeat
ABSTRACT Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is a member of the human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV)/BLV group of retroviruses. These viruses regulate their own transcription by producing Tax, a protein whichExpand
