Infection of ducklings with virus particles containing linear double-stranded duck hepatitis B virus DNA: illegitimate replication and reversion.


Double-stranded linear DNA is synthesized as a minor viral DNA species by all hepadnaviruses. In a previous study (W. Yang and J. Summers, J. Virol. 69:4029-4036, 1995) we showed that virus particles containing linear DNA of the duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) could initiate an infection of primary duck hepatocytes. In cells infected by linear DNA containing… (More)
