Oncornaviruses transform cells either directly through a virus-coded oncogene1 or, if they lack such a gene, indirectly by promoter insertion2–4 into the cellular genome and activation of a cellular gene. Both transformation mechanisms ultimately result in abnormally high expression of normal genes. Recently, the activated cellular gene in certain… CONTINUE READING
