Gene context of Mason-Pfizer Monkey Virus

  • In this study, we demonstrate that the Rev regulation of SIVmac239 can be replaced by the presence of the cis-acting transport element (CTE) of the type D simian retroviruses 1 (SRV-1) [22].
  • In RF cells, SRV-2 functions to increase IL-6 mRNA and protein production and presumably serves as autocrine growth factor [23].
  • Further studies are required to determine the relationship between the interaction of bFGF, SRV-2, and VEGF [24].
  • We report here that the TM glycoprotein of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus undergoes a second proteolytic processing event during a late maturation step that can follow virus release and Gag polyprotein cleavage [6].
  • Provirus and RNA virus loads were obtained, the samples were screened for presence of antibodies to SRV-2 and neutralizing antibody titers to SRV-2 were assayed. env sequences were aligned to determine intra- and intermonkey variation over time [25].
