Spliced human immunodeficiency virus type 1 RNA is reverse transcribed into cDNA within infected cells.


Both the full-length and spliced RNA species of HIV-1 possess the necessary cis-acting elements including the primer binding site (PBS), the polypurine tract (PPT), as well as the 5' R and 3' R regions that are needed for their conversion to double-stranded cDNA through reverse transcription. Since measurable amounts of spliced viral RNA molecules can be… (More)
