Quick Reference

A replication-defective retrovirus that will induce fibrosarcomas in vivo, and transform cells in culture. It arose by recombination between the Moloney murine leukaemia virus and a sequence (v-mos oncogene) derived from mouse cells and required for induction and maintenance of viral transformation; the human homologue was subsequently identified. See mos.
