mouse mammary tumor virus genome

Human bladder carcinoma oncogene is homologue of Harvey sarcoma virus ras gene. This forum is intended for constructive dialog. Bittner observed that mammary tumors developed in mice due to an extrachromosomal cause, i.e., they could be transmitted to pups when fostered by mothers from a lineage that develop breast cancer (Bittner, 1936). Organization and expression of mouse mammary tumor virus sequences in normal and neoplastic C3Hf/HeSed mouse tissues. Tumorigenesis by mouse mammary tumor virus: proviral activation of a cellular gene in the common integration region int-2. Mouse Mammary Tumor Virus (MMTV)was reported for the first time in 1933 by the Jackson Memorial Laboratory. The endogenous viruses are passed vertically, are incorporated into the mouse genome in Mendelian fashion, and become specific characteristics of different mouse strains. Rapetti-Mauss R, Berenguier C, Allegrini B, Soriani O. On pregnancy, prolactin and progestagens stimulate productive MMTV infection in the proliferating ducts of the mammary gland.

Importantly, MMTV RNA was not detected in 5 of 27 BALB/cfC3H tumors. Interaction between viral and genetic factors in murine mammary cancer. NOTE: We only request your email address so that the person you are recommending the page to knows that you wanted them to see it, and that it is not junk mail. The promoters in the LTR respond to estrogen stimulation, consistent with the growth of the virus in mammary epithelium. Since a virally encoded RNA export protein, Rem, also controls post-transcriptional events, MMTV appears to be a complex retrovirus. eCollection 2020. Based on these observations, Kane et al., (2011) tested the hypothesis that MMTV avoids immune-driven elimination by associating with bacterial LPS and inducing a tolerogenic immune response. Image credit: Sándor Borza (photographer). T cell deletion was assessed with a virus dose that induced a clearly measurable stimulation on Day 4, The I-E dependence shows the necessity of MHC class II 1-E for the stimulation and deletion of SAg-reactive T cells. Loss of repression and hormonal activation of milk-borne MMTV leads to efficient viral transcription in differentiated mammary cells to allow maximal transmission during lactation. MMTV associated with LPS induced IL-10 secretion when inoculated onto splenocytes in culture whereas LPS-free MMTV isolated from germ-free animals failed to induce IL-10 secretion. Expression of MMTV in these tumors was examined by assaying for the presence of MMTV RNA by hybridization using MMTV-specific cDNA and by immunohistochemical staining utilizing antibodies against MMTV 52,000-dalton glycoprotein, gp52, and 28,000-dalton internal protein, p28. [8], When the virus genome is inserted inside the host genome it is then able to transcribe its own viral genes.

Functions and origins of retroviral transforming genes. Front Physiol. Although there are some inbred Mtv-free wild mouse strains, the genetic background, especially their MHC, is impeding further immunological research (Pullen et al., 1990a). All inbred strains of mice contain one or more (in some strains more than 50) endogenous mammary tumor virus loci in their genome, and the genomic distribution of these loci is unique to each inbred strain of mouse. Virology. The exogenous form of mouse mammary tumor virus is transmitted to pups through the dam’s milk and saliva. High levels of MMTV are expressed in lymphoid leukemias of mouse strain GR and DBA/2 which contain extra integrated MMTV proviruses. DOI: The Sag proteins encoded by the LTR of mouse mammary tumor viruses are presented in the context of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules on dendritic and B cells, and are thereby recognized by T cells, which results in T cell reactivity. In addition to these endogenous mammary tumor viruses, mice are susceptible to exogenous mammary tumor viruses, although these exogenous viruses have been eliminated from contemporary mouse colonies (unless purposely maintained for experimental purposes). Mouse Mammary Tumor Virus Integration Site Selection in Human and Mouse Genomes † Alexander Faschinger, 1,2 Francoise Rouault, 2,3 Johannes Sollner, 4 Arno Lukas, 4 Brian Salmons, 3 We do not capture any email address. Mapping of linear and circular forms of mouse mammary tumor virus DNA with restriction endonucleases: evidence for a large specific deletion occurring at high frequency during circularization. We first identified a C3H mouse mammary tumor bearing a single new MMTV provirus and cloned a 19 kilobase (kb) DNA restriction fragment containing a junction of viral and host sequences. The LTR of mouse mammary tumor virus is an important determinant of mammary tissue tropism. Mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) is a retrovirus that is transmitted vertically from infected mothers to their pups via milk. Get the latest research from NIH: [citation needed], The MMTV promoter is used in the PyMT model system of mouse models of breast cancer metastasis. Preparative and analytical purification of DNA from agarose. The negative regulatory elements bind at least two homeodomain-containing proteins, SATB1 and CDP, which repress transcription in different cells and differentiation states to avoid insertional mutagenesis of host cells and the resulting tumors. The mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) has formerly been classified as a simple retrovirus; however, it has recently been established, that MMTV encodes an extra self-regulatory mRNA export protein, Rem, with resemblance to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV Rev protein, and is therefore the first complex murine retrovirus to be documented. This virus-derived protein is presented on murine MHC II molecules on antigen presenting cells, conferring broad clonal reactivity of responding T cells. J Mammary Gland Biol Neoplasia. Alternatively, MMTV exists as a germline transmitted provirus (Varmus et al., 1972; Cohen and Varmus, 1979, 1980; Groner and Hynes, 1980; Kozak et al., 1987).

Blood-borne B lymphocytes with replicating virus home to and infect the mammary gland, where virus replicates to extremely high titer in mammary tissue, and may induce mammary cancer through insertional mutagenesis. Online ISSN 1091-6490.

Analysis of avian leukosis virus DNA and RNA in bursal tumors: viral gene expression is not required for maintenance of the tumor state.

[1] and Moore et al. We will review submitted comments within 2 business days. If the virus is transferred exogenously, it is passed from the mother mouse to her pups through her milk. Int J Mol Sci. So far, numbers go from 1 to 53 with several numbers lacking due to mistakes in the attributions (see Table III). It also occurs as an exogenous virus that infects mice by vertical transfer, usually from mother to daughter through the milk. Regulatory and coding potential of the mouse mammary tumor virus long terminal redundancy. Initially discovered by John J. Bittner, the eponymously named Bittner virus was coined the “milk factor” by its discoverer. 1984 Jun;37(2):529-36. doi: 10.1016/0092-8674(84)90383-0. 1987 Feb;156(2):229-37. doi: 10.1016/0042-6822(87)90402-8. Mouse mammary tumor viruses (MMTV) are endogenous and exogenous retroviruses (genus Betaretrovirus), mostly milk borne, which often cause mammary carcinomas and sometimes T-cell lymphomas. Avian leukosis virus-induced tumors have common proviral integration sites and synthesize discrete new RNAs: oncogenesis by promoter insertion. The tissue selective expression of MMTV in the mammary gland of mice has been exploited to ectopically express oncogenes, resulting in numerous mouse models of breast cancer. In Fenner's Veterinary Virology (Fifth Edition), 2017. Indeed, the use and citation of MMTV in cancer research is on the rise, most of which is in the context of breast cancer research (Fig. MMTV replication is tightly controlled in these various cell types at the transcriptional level through both positive and negative elements in the viral long terminal repeats found at the ends of proviral DNA. 1982, Structure and role of the herpes simplex virus DNA termini in inversion, circularization and generation of virion DNA, Substitution of 5′ helper virus sequences into non-rel portion of reticuloendotheliosis virus strain T suppresses transformation of chicken spleen cells, We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Env sequences, on the contrary, are often nonfunctional in these proviruses (Mtv6, Mtv7, and Mtv8) (Gunzburg et al., 1984; Cho et al., 1995; A. N. Shakhov and H. Acha-Orbea, unpublished data). These leukemias are active when cells are transferred to other mice. (B) Before the 1980s HIV/AIDS epidemic shifted focus and funding for retroviral research, MMTV was well studied for its hormone responsiveness. Infected B and T lymphocytes disseminate MMTV to epithelial cells in the mammary gland. junction of viral and host sequences. Interplay Between Ion Channels and the Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling Pathway in Cancers. A gene (Bevi) on human chromosome 6 is an integration site for baboon type C DNA provirus in human cells. The following known MMTV strains have not yet been analyzed on their effect on T cells: MMTV(RF), -(DDD), -(DD0), -(MB), and Mtol. We have asked whether oncogenesis by the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV), a slowly oncogenic retrovirus, involves integration of viral DNA within a certain region of the host genome. For example, AKR mice develop 100% prevalence of thymic lymphoma between 6 and 12 months of age, whereas aging BALB/c mice commonly develop multicentric lymphoma. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) is an oncogenic retrovirus that causes breast cancer in mice when it integrates into the genome. 5.2.1D). In the current analysis, we searched for MMTV sequences within the human genome. In this way, the pool of susceptible cells is increased in size and the infection is amplified.

Carp can disperse their eggs via the digestive system of ducks, and dispersal of a single Prussian carp egg could establish a new population, according to a study. 5.2B and D). Mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) is a milk-transmitted retrovirus like the HTL viruses, HI viruses, and BLV. Bryan C. Nikolai, Andrew P. Rice, in Retrovirus-Cell Interactions, 2018. Figure 14.8. MMTV occurs as an endogenous virus, present in 0–4 copies in different strains of mice. The other BALB/cfC3H tumors contained quantities of MMTV RNA ranging from 0.0006 to 0.4170%. Luis Menéndez-Arias, ... Stephen Oroszlan, in Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes (Third Edition), 2013. In addition to these endogenous mammary tumor viruses, mice are susceptible to exogenous mammary tumor viruses, although these exogenous viruses have been eliminated from contemporary mouse colonies (unless purposely maintained for experimental purposes). This promoter contains several receptor-binding sites or hormone response elements (HREs), enhancer-like sequences that confer glucocorticoid responsiveness via interaction with the GR. Most described proviruses have lost the capability of producing infectious viral particles. Comments that are commercial or promotional in nature, pertain to specific medical cases, are not relevant to the article for which they have been submitted, or are otherwise inappropriate will not be posted.

Sanjiv A. Luther, Hans Acha-Orbea, in Advances in Immunology, 1997. Most endogenous Mtvs express a functional SAg. Specific integration of REV proviruses in avian bursal lymphomas. [10], The LTR (long terminal repeat) of MMTV contains a glucocorticoid hormone response element. The replicative advantage gained by MMTV through its hormone-driven expression should not be understated. It belongs to the genus Betaretrovirus. Various inbred strains of mice have several means to subvert this cycle of susceptibility, thereby contributing to mouse-strain-related differences in susceptibility to mammary cancer.
