Isolation of novel human retrovirus-related sequences by hybridization to synthetic oligonucleotides complementary to the tRNA(Pro) primer-binding site.


Synthetic oligonucleotides complementary to putative retroviral primer-binding sites were used as hybridization probes to detect novel retroviruslike sequences. An 8.1-kilobase element with structural features of a retroviral provirus was isolated from a human genomic library by this approach. Nucleotide sequence analysis of its 600-base-pair long terminal… (More)
