The complete 9193-nucleotide sequence of the probable causative agent of AIDS, lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV), has been determined. The deduced genetic structure is unique: it shows, in addition to the retroviral gag, pol, and env genes, two novel open reading frames we call Q and F. Remarkably, Q is located between pol and env and F is half-encoded by the U3 element of the LTR. These data place LAV apart from the previously characterized family of human T cell leukemia/lymphoma viruses… 
Genome organization and transactivation of the human immunodeficiency virus type 2
Analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the human retrovirus associated with AIDS in West Africa, HIV-2, shows that it is evolutionary distant from the previously characterized HIV-1. We suggest that
A new HTLV-III/LAV protein encoded by a gene found in cytopathic retroviruses.
TLDR
Evidence presented here shows that this open reading frame is a bona fide coding sequence of HTLV-III/LAV and that its product, a protein with a molecular weight of 23,000, induces antibody production in the natural course of infection.
Location of the trans-activating region on the genome of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type III.
TLDR
The retrovirus involved in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HTLV-III/LAV) contains a region that is necessary for stimulation of gene expression directed by the viral long terminal repeat, which could encode an 86-amino acid protein with structural features similar to those of nucleic acid-binding proteins.
Evolutionary relationships of the human immunodeficiency viruses.
TLDR
The rapid accumulation of nucleotide sequence data on viral genes has allowed the development of detailed phylogenies of viruses based on an objective criterion, demonstrated clearly in the recent analysis of the evolutionary relationships of HIV - the AIDS virus.
HTLV-III/LAV: The Role of Molecular Biology in Viral Detection and Prevention
TLDR
The causative agent of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) appears to be a retrovirus designated either as human T lymphotropic virus (HTLV-III) or lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) and appears to belong to the lentiviridae subfamily.
Nucleotide sequences of gag and env genes of a Japanese isolate of HIV-1 and their expression in bacteria.
TLDR
A DNA clone of HIV-1, JH3, was isolated from a Japanese patient with hemophilia and the gag and env genes were sequenced and showed high divergence in the env gene, particularly in the extracellular domain of the env.
Equine infectious anemia virus gag and pol genes: relatedness to visna and AIDS virus.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the gag and pol genes of an equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) proviral DNA clone was determined and these viruses constitute a family clearly distinct from that of the type C viruses or the BLV-HTLV-I and -II group.
Human immunodeficiency virus: the eighth gene.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that there is an eighth gene which encodes a protein which is immunogenic and recognized by sera of some HTLV-III seropositive people.
Molecular characterization of human immunodeficiency virus from Zaire: nucleotide sequence analysis identifies conserved and variable domains in the envelope gene.
TLDR
This model provides a basis for assessing the significance of sequence variation on properties controlled by the viral Env glycoproteins such as cell tropism and immunogenicity in HIV isolates from different geographic locations.
Lentivirus genomic organization: the complete nucleotide sequence of the env gene region of equine infectious anemia virus.
TLDR
A detailed description of the env gene region of EIAV is provided and a number of characteristic features of genomic organization in lentiviruses which contrast with the genomic organization of oncogenic retroviruses are described.

Nucleotide sequence of Moloney murine leukaemia virus
TLDR
The 8,332-nucleotide structure of the genome of Moloney murine leukaemia virus is determined and the coding frame for the gag gene is the same as that for pol, separated only by a single amber triplet.
Homology of genome of AIDS-associated virus with genomes of human T-cell leukemia viruses.
TLDR
Immunological analysis of this retrovirus and its biological properties suggest that it is a member of the family of human T-lymphotropic retroviruses known as HTLV, and it has been named HTLV-III.
Nucleotide sequence of rous sarcoma virus
TLDR
It is hypothesized that E was part of a duplicated region of over 250 nucleotides flanking the src gene in an ancestral RSV, and that differential deletion of one copy of E led to its positional difference in Pr-C and SR-A.
The nucleotide sequence of the env gene and post-env region of bovine leukemia virus.
TLDR
Comparison of the BLV and HTLV sequences within the post-envelope region revealed a very limited but possibly significant similarity.
Bovine leukemia virus: unique structural features of its long terminal repeats and its evolutionary relationship to human T-cell leukemia virus.
TLDR
The unique structural feature of bovine leukemia virus and human T-cell leukemia virus LTRs may bear some relation to the biological features commonly shared by these retroviruses.
Molecular characterization of genome of a novel human T-cell leukaemia virus
TLDR
Molecular cloning demonstrates that the complete provirus genome is 8.8 kilobase pairs in size and is transmissible to uninfected cells and two types of infectious deleted provirus were characterized.
Major pol gene progenitors in the evolution of oncoviruses.
TLDR
Evidence of unusual patterns of homology among the env genes of mammalian type C and D oncoviruses illustrates that genetic interactions between their progenitors contributed to the evolution of oncaviruses.
Molecular cloning and characterization of the HTLV-III virus associated with AIDS
TLDR
The availability of the cloned HTLV-III genome will now allow an unambiguous comparison of this virus with other retroviruses that also have been associated with the pathogenesis of AIDS8–11, and will facilitate the development of diagnostic and therapeutic measures in the treatment of AIDS.
Spontaneous variation and synthesis in the U3 region of the long terminal repeat of an avian retrovirus.
TLDR
Recombinant DNA clones of a viral clone of spleen necrosis virus, an avian retrovirus, were found to have long terminal repeats of different sizes, and the U3 regions in the 5' and 3' long terminal repeat were shown both to be derived from the 3'long terminal repeat of parental virus DNA.
Nucleotide sequence analysis of the long terminal repeat of human T-cell leukemia virus type II.
TLDR
Comparison of the HTLV-II LTR sequence with that previously published for adult T-cell leukemia virus (ATLV) shows that the LTRs are distinct, involving sequences important for transcription and a sequence of 21 nucleotides repeated three times in U3.
