Mouse mammary tumor virus integration regions int-1 and int-2 map on different mouse chromosomes.

Abstract

Two regions of mouse DNA which constitute common provirus integration sites in tumors induced by mouse mammary tumor virus have been identified and designated int-1 and int-2. By examining a series of hamster-mouse somatic cell hybrids, we mapped the int-2 locus to mouse chromosome 7 and confirmed the previous assignment of int-1 to chromosome 15. This constitutes proof that int-1 and int-2 are discrete genetic loci. It is therefore possible that proviral activation of two distinct cellular genes may result in the same neoplastic disease.
