A superantigen encoded in the open reading frame of the 3′ long terminal repeat of mouse mammary tumour virus

Article metrics

Abstract

Mice express a collection of superantigens, which bind to class II major histocompatibility proteins and interact with T cells bearing particular Vβ chains as part of their αβ receptors. These super-antigens have been suggested to be encoded by exogenous or endogenous mouse mammary tumour viruses. One such superantigen is now shown to be encoded in the open reading frame of the long terminal repeat of a mammary tumour virus, a gene of previously unknown function.
