[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] Horizontal gene transfer has played a major role in bacterial evolution, including in the genus Mycoplasma, which is comprised of some of the simplest and smallest free...
Characterization of the role of adenovirus-5 (Ad-5) gene products E2A, E4ORF6 and VA RNA on adeno-associated virus type 5 (AAV5) transcription, translation and replication
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] AAV5 is the most distinct serotype of the AAVs differing from the prototype virus AAV2 at the nucleotide level. We show that in AAV5 the Rep transcripts terminate in the middle...
