Guanine-adenine bias: a general property of retroid viruses that is unrelated to host-induced hypermutation.


The recently discovered mammalian enzymes, APOBEC3G and 3F, induce guanine-to-adenine hypermutation in retroviruses. However, the preference of adenine over guanine in retroviral codon usage is not correlated with the presence or absence of APOBEC3G or its viral inhibitor (Vif), and its pattern does not reflect the biochemical properties of APOBEC3G action… (More)
