Linkage of reduced receptor affinity and superinfection to pathogenesis of TR1.3 murine leukemia virus.


TR1.3 is a Friend murine leukemia virus (MLV) that induces selective syncytium induction (SI) of brain capillary endothelial cells (BCEC), intracerebral hemorrhage, and death. Syncytium induction by TR1.3 has been mapped to a single tryptophan-to-glycine conversion at position 102 of the envelope glycoprotein (Env102). The mechanism of SI by TR1.3 was… (More)
