... chromosomes. I'm going to tell you a lot about why, in thinking about the provirus hypothesis, it's correct to focus on reverse transcriptase. That is the big enchilada in the provirus world. John Coffin has beautifully told you about its discovery ...

... specific location, but that was redundant in three locations. Amplified 00:17:00 the fulllength provirus and much to our surprise between the integration sites, the provirus appeared to be intact. Amplified it in two halves, transfected it into permissive cells, and then passed it into CD4positive ...

... resting cells don't produce virus. We could show they contain integrated provirus by an inverse PCR method that amplifies the junction between host DNA and the provirus. And most importantly, we showed that although these cells don't produce a virus, if you ...
