Abstract

This review will deal with a retroviral mouse gene which has contributed to the understanding of gene control ineukaryotes. It has made possible the study of mechanisms of hormonal control, of tissue specificity of gene expression, and a molecular description of early events in carcinogenesis. The mouse mammary tumour virus (MMTV) system has been extensively reviewed (Hynes & Groner, 1982; Vogt & Koprowski, 1983; Groner ., 1983, 1984; Ponta ., 1985; Hynes ., 1984).
