The genome of the Moloney murine leukemia virus (MoMuLV) is composed of two identical RNA molecules joined at their 5' ends by the dimer linkage structure (DLS). Dimerization sequences are located within the PSI encapsidation domain. We present here an overview of the work we have performed on spontaneous dimerization of a MoMuLV RNA fragment encompassing… CONTINUE READING
