Leukemic cells of AKR mice contain as constituents of their membranes the murine leukemia virus envelope protein gp70 and the precursor polyprotein of the viral internal (core) structural proteins. Both gp70 and the core polyprotein are represented on the cell surface as glycoproteins, as evidenced by incorporation of [3H]glucosamine into their structure and the binding of these proteins to lectins. The glycosylated core polyprotein exists in at least two serologically distinguishable forms… CONTINUE READING
