Two spatially distinct genetic elements constitute a bipartite DNA replication origin in the minute virus of mice genome.


Mutations were introduced into plasmid pMM984, a full-length infectious clone of the fibrotropic strain of minute virus of mice, to identify cis-acting genetic elements required for the excision and replication of the viral genome. The replicative capacity of these mutants was measured directly, using an in vivo transient DNA replication assay following… (More)
