Two distinct polypeptides may be translated from a single spliced mRNA of the X genes of human T-cell leukemia and bovine leukemia viruses.

Abstract

Human T-cell leukemia and bovine leukemia viruses have a potential transforming gene, termed X. In addition to the major open reading frame known to encode a functional protein, the X gene harbors another short open reading frame which overlaps this major one. Both of these open reading frames are found on a single spliced X mRNA in a potentially functional… (More)
