Infection of JLS V9 (mouse bone marrow) cells with Moloney murine leukemia virus leads to appearance of virus specific DNA in the low molecular weight DNA fraction from infected cells. Most of this DNA is double stranded. Two discrete forms of double stranded DNA, both of molecular weight 6x106, have been characterized. One of these forms is closed circular, supercoiled DNA; the other form is a mixture of nicked circlar and linear DNA.
