Generation and replication of the GFP-Env-tagged viruses. (A) Schematic representation of the GFP-Env-tagged viruses. EGF, epidermal growth factor; PRR, proline rich region; GFP, green fluorescent protein; L, signal peptide.(B) Viral replication kinetic in transfected NIH3T3 cells monitored by the percentage of GFP-positive cells.(C) PCR analysis of genomic DNA from FLY-Jet cells transfected with GFP-EMO. The N-terminal sequences of the EGF-Env gene were analyzed by PCR using the primers MLV-5'-Env and BS-5. GFP-EMO plasmid DNA was used as a positive control and gave rise to a 900 bp fragment. Predominantly faster migrating fragments were amplified from genomic DNA (gDNA) of GFP-EMO transfected FLY-Jet cells 32 days after transfection.
