Oncogene-containing retroviruses are generated by recombination events between viral and cellular sequences, a phenomenon called “oncogene capture”. The captured cellular genes, referred to as “v-onc” genes, then acquire new oncogenic properties. We report a novel feline leukemia virus (FeLV), designated “FeLV–AKT”, that has captured feline c-AKT1 in feline(More)
Recombination events induce significant genetic changes, and this process can result in virus genetic diversity or in the generation of novel pathogenicity. We discovered a new recombinant feline leukemia virus (FeLV) gag gene harboring an unrelated insertion, termed the X region, which was derived from Felis catus endogenous gammaretrovirus 4(More)
