RNA Directed DNA Polymerase in C-Type Particles from Normal Rat Thymus Cultures and Moloney Leukemia Virus

  • Yael Teitz
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 44)


For the last few years we have been studying the metabolic process involved in the morphogenesis of the Moloney leukemia virus (MLV) and, particularly, in identifying and characterizing the enzymic system responsible for the synthesis of the RNA moiety (the genetic material) of this murine leukemia virus. Hopefully, such metabolic studies will throw light on how oncogenic viruses transform the cells they infect; however, it should be emphasized that different viral genes may be involved in viral reproduction in contrast to viral transformation.
