The authors are retracting this abstract [1]. The preliminary data reported were presented at the “Frontiers of Retrovirology: Complex Retroviruses, Retroelements and Their Hosts”, in September 2009. Subsequently, the authors have been unable to reproduce key cell culture data and have discontinued this project. All of the authors agree with this retraction.
