Rous sarcoma virus expresses a transcriptional activator that affects the LTR as well as other promoters. We discern this activity as a stimulation of the transient expression of an LTR-promoted hybrid transcriptional unit and also of the rat preproinsulin II gene in transfected NIH 3T3 cells. We map the activity to an alternate reading frame in the p19-p10… CONTINUE READING
