Foamy viruses (spumaretroviruses) represent a retroviral genus which exhibits unusual features relating it to pararetroviruses. Previously, we reported the existence of a protein species harboring Env, Bel, and Bet epitopes in human foamy virus (HFV)-infected cells (M. L. Giron, F. Rozain, M. C. Debons-Guillemin, M. Canivet, J. Périès, and R. Emanoil-Ravier, J. Virol. 67:3596-3600, 1993). Here, we identify this protein as a 160-kDa Env-Bet fusion glycoprotein (gp160) translated from an mRNA… CONTINUE READING
