The human immunodeficiency virus, HIV (formerly T-cell lymphotropic virus type III, HTLV-III or lymphadenopathy-associated virus, LAV) is the primary cause of AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). Patients with AIDS have profound immunosuppression as a result of almost complete absence of the OKT4+ cell population and are predisposed to a number of(More)
In mouse cells induced with virus infection or dsRNA, the relative levels of alpha-4 interferon mRNA were higher than the levels of alpha-1 and alpha-6 mRNAs; the ratio between relative levels of alpha-4 and alpha-1 or alpha-6 mRNA was, however, dependent on the cell type. Recombinant plasmids, in which the expression of chloramphenicol acetyltransferase(More)
Virus inducible elements (IE) in promoters of mouse alpha-interferon and human beta 1-interferon genes contain multiple copies of the hexanucleotide sequence AGT-GAA or its variants which are also found in the interferon-stimulated response element of genes transcriptionally induced by interferon. We have examined the similarities between virus and(More)
