Expression of the bovine leukemia virus transactivator protein p34 by a recombinant vaccinia virus.

Abstract

In order to characterize the bovine leukemia virus transactivator protein, a recombinant vaccinia virus (v-LOR) containing the BLV post-envelope long open reading frame was constructed. v-LOR was shown to encode a functional protein able to transactivate the BLV long terminal repeat-directed gene expression in the infected cells. The encountered level of… (More)
