Figure 7

Stability of the LTR/ gag sequence in the integrated FIV provirus during the course of infection. The subgenomic region of the inoculating FIV provirus, shown at the top of the figure, was PCR-amplified from PBMCs of infected cats and analyzed by DNA sequencing. Relative nucleotide positions within the amplified sequence are indicated with PBS denoting the primer binding sequence, SD denoting the splice donor, and ATG marking the start of gag translation. Viral sequences derived from PBMCs isolated at different time points from the four different FIV-infected cats are depicted schematically.
