Mapping the viral sequences conferring leukemogenicity and disease specificity in Moloney and amphotropic murine leukemia viruses.


The Moloney murine leukemia virus (MuLV) is a highly leukemogenic virus. To map the leukemogenic potential of Moloney MuLV, we constructed chimeric viral DNA genomes in vitro between parental cloned infectious viral DNA from Moloney and amphotropic 4070-A MuLVs. Infectious chimeric MuLVs were recovered by microinjection of recombinant DNA into NIH/3T3 cells… (More)
