Influence of Specific Nucleotide Sequences on the Transcriptional Activity of the Avian Retro viral Long Terminal Repeats Academic Article uri icon


  • The influence of specific nucleotide sequences on the constitutive transcriptional activity of the Rous sarcoma long terminal repeats (LTR) was studied. The possible function of different elements of the transcriptional control region of the avian retroviral LTR was discussed on the basis of a comparative analysis of the effect of specific nucleotide insertions on LTR activity in vivo and in vitro.
