Point mutations in the P30 domain of the gag gene of Moloney murine leukemia virus.


A series of point mutations in the P30 domain of the Moloney murine leukemia virus gag gene was generated by bisulfite treatment of heteroduplex DNAs containing a single-stranded region in the gag gene. One virus bearing such a mutation exhibited a coordinate defect in gag and pol function, and was similar to previously described deletion mutants with alterations in this gene. One mutant virus displayed a different phenotype: it could assemble virion particles and provide pol function, but the particles were defective in the early stages of infection. The continued concordance of the mutants' failure or ability to both assemble virions and provide pol lends further support to the proposal that similar parts of the gag gene are required for these two processes.
