The murine AIDS (MAIDS) virus has a unique sequence in the gag p12 region, which could be responsible for MAIDS development. RNA preparations from the spleens of normal uninfected C57BL/6 mice contain a transcript hybridizing with this sequence. Levels of the transcript in the kidney of C57BL/6 mice were higher than in the spleen, liver or thymus. Although(More)
The pathogenicities of the murine AIDS (MAIDS) virus complex (LP-BM5) and ecotropic helper virus (BM5eco) isolated from the complex to BALB/c nude mice were studied to elucidate the possible role of replication-competent helper virus in inducing the monoclonal outgrowth of lymphoid cells. Neither LP-BM5 nor BM5eco was pathogenic in adult BALB/c nude mice.(More)
Src homology 2 (SH2) domains play a critical role in cellular signal transduction. They bind to peptides containing phosphotyrosine (pY) with various specificities that depend on the flanking amino-acid residues. The SH2 domain of growth-factor receptor-bound protein 2 (Grb2) specifically recognizes pY-X-N-X, whereas the SH2 domains in phosphatidylinositol(More)
