Simian T Cell Leukemia Virus Type I from Naturally Infected Feral Monkeys from Central and West Africa Encodes a 91-Amino Acid p12 (ORF-I) Protein as Opposed to a 99-Amino Acid Protein Encoded by HTLV Type I from Humans

Abstract

A single protein of 12 kl)a, pl2 is encoded by the HTLV-I genome from both the singly spliced mRNA pXORF-I and doubly spliced mRNA pX-rex-ORF-I. While many full-length sequences of HTLV-1 are known, data on the pi2 region of African STLV-I are unavailable. We have undertaken to sequence the pi2 gene in STLV-I from Central and West African naturally infected… (More)
