The env gene of avian sarcoma and leukosis retroviruses is allelic in the virus population permitting the virus to use different host cell receptors. This polymorphism has allowed the classification of these viruses into different subgroups. In order to understand further the role of viral sequences involved in determining this host range phenomenon, we constructed molecular recombinants between subgroup A, B, and E viruses and showed that the host range determinant defining subgroup… CONTINUE READING
