The promoter activity of long terminal repeats (LTRs) of four strains of the simian immunodeficiency virus isolated from African green monkeys (SIVAGM) was compared with those of various LTRs derived from the other representative primate lentiviruses: human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), type 2 (HIV-2), SIV from a rhesus monkey (SIVMAC), and SIV from a mandrill (SIVMND). The expression of the LTRs was evaluated by monitoring chloramphenicol acetyltransferase production after… CONTINUE READING
