Abstract

A closed circular, double stranded infectious DNA of Moloney leukemia virus has been described previously. The present report characterizes a second type of infectious, unintegrated viral DNA which is linear, largely double stranded, and of mass comparable to that of the closed circular viral DNA. The linear form is of nonpermuted sequence, and SalI endonuclease cleaves at one site 45% from one end.
