Isolation of a retroviruslike sequence from the TL locus of the C57BL/10 murine major histocompatibility complex.

By C L Pampeno and D Meruelo


Two retroviruslike sequences have been isolated from the TL locus of the major histocompatibility complex of C57BL/10 mice. One sequence (TLev2) hybridizes only with probes derived from the pol region of the murine leukemia provirus AKR; the other sequence (TLev1) hybridizes with gag, pol, and env AKR region probes. This 9-kilobase endogenous, TL region-associated virus (TLev1) has been further characterized. The TLev1 genome has been shown to contain murine leukemia virus-related sequences bounded by retroviruslike, VL30 long terminal repeats. Hybridization of TLev1-derived probes to mouse genomic digests reveals multiple copies which show distinct patterns compared with those observed with murine leukemia virus probes. The study of TLev1 may prove significant with respect to the interaction of retroviral sequences within the genome, expression of genes within the TL locus, and polymorphisms within the major histocompatibility complex
