Isolation and mapping of cDNA hybridization probes specific for ecotropic and nonecotropic murine leukemia proviruses.
To study the structure of murine leukemia proviruses in AKR mice by Southern hybridization, we have isolated and mapped ecotropic AKV and nonecotropic MCF-derived cDNA restriction fragments. The ecotropic-specific probes originate from four regions of the AKV genome which include the corresponding recombinant region of two MCF viruses (VI-36 and 247). We also isolated two nonecotropic probes from the recombinant region of MCF V1-36. The probes were characterized by (i) mapping of restriction fragments at the 3' end of AKV and MCF V1-36 by a two-dimensional gel strategy, (ii) hybridization of restriction fragments to the related viral RNA genomes followed by electrophoresis, (iii) two-dimensional fingerprinting of single-stranded restriction fragments, and (iv) DNA sequence analysis of the ecotropic probes. The ecotropic AKV and nonecotropic MCF probes discriminate between two populations of endogenous murine leukemia viruses and show that the MCF viruses are not present in the germ line of AKR mice.
