Abstract: Avian retroviruses (with the notable exception of spleen necrosis virus) express their protease (PR) both in their gag and their gag-pol polyprotein precursors, in contrast to other retroviruses, notably, the mammalian retroviruses, in which PR is encoded in the gag-pol polyprotein or in a separate reading frame as a gag-pro product. The consequence is that the avian PR is expressed in stoichiometric rather than catalytic amounts. To investigate the significance of the particular genome organization of the avi…
