Molecular dissection of transcriptional control elements within the long terminal repeat of the retrovirus.


The retroviral long terminal repeat (LTR) contains transcriptional control elements that affect viral gene expression. By deletion mutagenesis of the genome of the cloned Abelson murine leukemia virus, regulatory signals could be mapped to at least three domains within the LTR. A defective 5' LTR that did not sustain transforming gene function was… (More)
