Lentiviruses control virion production via posttranscriptional regulation mediated by the viral Rev protein. In this study, we demonstrate that the Rev regulation of SIVmac239 can be replaced by the presence of the cis-acting transport element (CTE) of the type D simian retroviruses 1 (SRV-1). To avoid the possibility of generating revertants, the Rev-Independent SIV clones have both rev and the Rev responsive element (RRE) destroyed by multiple point mutations that do not affect the… CONTINUE READING
