Genetic evidence that the avian retrovirus DNA endonuclease domain of pol is necessary for viral integration.


We used in vitro mutagenesis in the 3' region of the avian retrovirus polymerase (pol) gene to genetically define the role of the DNA endonuclease domain. In-frame insertional mutations, which were dispersed throughout the 5' region of pp32, produced a series of five replication-deficient mutants. In contrast, a single point mutant (Ala----Pro) located 48… (More)
