We have identified the protein encoded by chicken c-rel, the cellular homolog of the v-rel oncogene carried by reticuloendotheliosis virus. The protein has been detected in two avian lymphoid cell lines and in chick embryo fibroblasts. It has a molecular weight of 68,000, suggesting that the viral gene (which encodes a protein of 59,000 molecular weight) is… CONTINUE READING
