We recently reported the identification of sequences in the chicken genome that show over 95% identity to the novel envelope gene of the subgroup J avian leukosis virus (S. J. Benson, B. L. Ruis, A. M. Fadly, and K. F. Conklin, J. Virol. 72:10157-10164, 1998). Based on the fact that the endogenous subgroup J-related env genes were associated with long(More)
An enhancer element is located in the U3 portion of exogenous avian retrovirus long terminal repeats (LTRs). A similar element has not been detected in the LTRs of ev-1 and ev-2, two avian endogenous viruses (evs) that normally are not expressed in vivo. Experiments were initiated to determine whether minor nucleotide differences in the U3 region of a(More)
