The complete nucleotide sequence of the genome of Solid-type Reticulum cell Sarcoma 19-6 murine leukemia virus (SRS 19-6 MuLV) was determined. This virus was isolated in mainland China from laboratory mice that had been separated from western mice since the 1930s. The genome is 8,256 nucleotides in length and exhibits a genetic organization characteristic of replication competent MuLVs. Phylogenies constructed from reverse transcriptase (RT) domains showed that SRS 19-6 MuLV is closely related… CONTINUE READING
