The provirus sequence is almost all derived from a clone of Moloney MLV (NC_001501). We switched the ecotropic
env gene with the amphotropic env gene from MLV 4070A (M33469), so it's a hybrid of those two MLV strains. In
MoMLV, there is a stop codon at the end of gag, which is sometimes bypassed. In these cases, a gag-pol
polyprotein is produced, and this is how pol is translated. Pol doesn't have a separate start codon. I believe
all of the sequences are correct. We've sequenced the entire virus-derived portions of the original provirus
plasmids from which all of the other provirus plasmids were constructed. For each of these individual later
plasmids, we've at least verified the IRES/UTR/control-GFP insert sequence. I am assuming that no mutations
outside that region were acquired during the cloning. Each of the provirus plasmids has either a BsiWI or MluI
at the 5' side of the IRES (just after the env stop codon) and a NotI at the 3' side of GFP (just before the
MLV 3' UTR). These are the sites we used to transfer the IRES-GFP cassettes.


However, this empty vector sequence we received from Chris has an extra G in the sequence acgcGgt (a typo
destroying the MluI site in the intercistronic region between env and GFP?).

This vector gives 9% expression (the background) compared to 100% when same vector with EMCV IRES is used
(Figure 2).
