Part of the Developments in Molecular Virology book series (DMVI, volume 9)


An experimental system has been developed in which foreign coding sequences for easily assayed genes or selectable markers are placed under the control of the polyoma late promoter. The use of this system has allowed the elucidation of the cisacting elements that control expression from this promoter and the demonstration of transactivation of this promoter by the viral early proteins. In addition to these forms of transcriptional control, the results also suggest that late transcription, both in polyoma transformed cells and early in the course of a lytic infection, may also be regulated at a posttranscriptional level.
