Biosafety Level 2

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--6.5, 4.3, 1.7; EcoRI--8.2, 3.0, 2.5; SalI--9.4, 4.3.
The clone was derived from unintegrated DNA from an acute infection of QT-6 cells.
Unintegrated DNA isolated from an acute infection of QT-6 cells by SRA-2 virus. Permuted SRA-2 molecule from lambda gt WES was circul
A gag-specific probe can be generated from a 1.35 kb BamHI fragment; a pol-specific probe can be generated from a 0.8 kb HindIII/BamHI fragment; an LTR-specific probe from a 0.32 kb EcoRI fragment, and a src-specific probe from a 0.8 kb PvuII fragment.
SRA-2 from lambdagtWES (linearized at SacI) was circularized, cut with SalI, and cloned into pBR322.
