Novel integration sites at the distal 3' end of the c-myb locus in retrovirus-induced promonocytic leukemias.

In BALB/c nu/nu and sublethally irradiated DBA/2 mice, promonocytic leukemia was induced by intravenous inoculation of Friend murine leukemia virus (F-MuLV) strain C57 in conjunction with intraperitoneal injection of pristane. These tumors appear to be identical morphologically to previously reported ones induced by other MuLVs, such as Moloney, amphotropic 4070A, and F-MuLV FB29, which most commonly have provirus integrations in the 5' end of the c-myb locus. Interestingly, 2 of the 16 F-MuLV-induced tumors had viruses integrated in the distal 3' end of c-myb. To determine the precise locations of these integrations, it was necessary to clone sequences encoding the 3' c-myb exons and to prepare a physical map of this region. Exons 10 to 15 were positioned on the map, and it was found that the proviruses in the aforementioned tumors were located within narrow region in the beginning of the large (greater than 11 kb) intron 14. The predicted protein product encoded by the affected alleles is truncated by 38 amino acids. This represents a novel virus integration site which is most likely associated with oncogenic activation of the c-myb gene during leukemogenesis.[1]
