The host ranges of the Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) pseudotype RSV(HPRS-103) of a novel avian leukosis virus (ALV), strain HPRS-103, and representative RSV pseudotypes of subgroups A to F, have been determined in embryo fibroblasts from 12 avian species. Domestic fowl, red jungle fowl, Sonnerat's jungle fowl and turkey were susceptible to infection by(More)
Subgroup J avian leukosis virus (ALV) is a recently identified avian retrovirus associated with myeloid leukosis in meat-type chickens. The env gene of the HPRS-103 strain of ALV, the prototype of this subgroup, differs considerably from that of other subgroups, but shows close homology to the env-like sequences of members of the EAV family of endogenous(More)
The tissue tropism was studied for the HPRS-103 strain of avian leukosis virus, which belongs to a new envelope subgroup, designated J. Studies were conducted in blood monocyte and bone marrow cell cultures and in chickens from six lines that had been shown previously to differ in susceptibility to induction by this virus of myeloid leukosis and other(More)
HPRS-103, the prototype of avian leukosis virus (ALV) subgroup J, was isolated in 1989 from meat-type chickens from commercial flocks where it induces myelocytic myeloid leukosis (ML). The HPRS-103 env gene differs considerably from other ALV subgroups but shows high identity (75-97%) to env-like sequences of the different members of the EAV family of(More)
HPRS-103, the prototype of avian leukosis virus (ALV) subgroup J, is a recently identified retrovirus associated with myeloid leukosis in meat-type chickens. Although this virus shows high sequence identity to other ALV subgroups within the gag and pol genes, its env gene is highly diverged (with only about 40% sequence identity) from other ALV subgroups.(More)
The MK++ kernel, a descendant of Mach, was designed and implemented at the Open Group Research Institute. Independently , Computational Logic had developed a formal specification for the Mach kernel interface. We report on the adaptation of this specification to MK++, and its use in the derivation of a testing strategy for the MK++ implementation. The(More)
