Abstract

The purpose of this study was to construct an intergenic transfer vector which can be used for the generation of recombinant myxoma viruses (MVs) expressing a foreign gene insert. Recombinant MVs expressing the gene were constructed by transfection of MV-infected rabbit cells with a transfer expression vector, and isolated under growth conditions selecting for transient expression of the gene. The effect of inserting foreign DNA sequences between the viral thymidine kinase gene and open reading frame MF8a upon the transcription of these genes was investigated.
