AbstractThe bovine papillomaviruses (BPV) are capable of transforming cells from a wide range of species both in vivo and in vitro. The 69% portion of the BPV-1 viral genome that contains the transforming region, as well as the 31% portion, were cloned in the pBR322 plasmid vector. An extensive restriction endonuclease map of the transforming region was prepared. Using the cloned transforming region as a ³²P probe, BPV-1 coded mRNA transcripts from transformed cells were detected and sized using the northern blot technique. The largest open reading frame of the transforming region of the BPV-1 genome was sequenced using the Maxam and Gilbert chemical method and the amino acid sequence of a protein that this region could code for was presented.
