By testing recombinants between "high tumor" (inducing a high incidence of tumors) and "low tumor" (inducing a low incidence of tumors) strains of polyomavirus, we have previously shown that the key determinant(s) for induction of a high tumor profile resides in coding regions of the high tumor strain (R. Freund, G. Mandel, G. G. Carmichael, J. P. Barncastle, C. J. Dawe, and T. L. Benjamin, J. Virol. 61:2232-2239, 1987). Three single-amino-acid differences between the PTA (high tumor) and RA… CONTINUE READING
