The gene which encodes the Epstein-Barr gp 220/340 was inserted into a eukaryotic expression vector. A cDNA clone corresponding to the mature mRNA coding for gp 220 was isolated from an Epstein-Barr virus cDNA library and inserted in the same expression vector, enabling us to identify the precise location of the intron within the gp 220/340 coding sequence… CONTINUE READING
