Deletion Analysis of Both the Long Terminal Repeat and the Internal Promoters of the Human Foamy Virus

Abstract

Deletion analyses of the long terminal repeat (LTR) and internal promoters (IP) of human foamy virus (HFV) showed that a negative acting element resides in the U5 region of the 5′ LTR reducing reporter gene expression tenfold. The basal activity of the IP was higher than that obtained with LTR promoter constructs and strongly elevated in permissive BHK-21… (More)
