Abstract

Since its discovery in 1957, Friend viral erythroleukemia has been the major model for understanding host genetic barriers to retroviral diseases and has facilitated the discovery of many polymorphic leukemia-control genes of mice. Some of these genes limit helper-virus replication, target-cell (erythroblast) pools or immune responses. At least one host gene appears to block the viral oncoprotein.
