An SV40 mutant oncoprotein has a nuclear location.


T147 is an SV40 mutant that makes a normal small t antigen and a large T antigen that is only 147 amino acids long. We have introduced a second mutation into the genome of T147 which eliminates its ability to encode small t antigen. We show that this double mutant is able to transform C3H10T1/2 mouse cells in a focus assay and F111 rat cells in an agar… (More)
