Abstract

A large number of novel cellular proto-oncogenes have been identified and cloned by analysis of common integration sites in retrovirally induced malignancies. In the multistage erythroleukemias induced by the various strains of Friend leukemia virus, the analysis of proviral-integration events has led to the identification of two genes, Fli-1 and Spi-1, both novel members of the ets oncogene family of transcription factors. In this report, we describe the identification of another integration site, designated Fli-2 (Friend leukemia virus integration-2), in an erythroleukemia cell line induced by Friend murine leukemia virus (F-MuLV). Rearrangements at the Fli-2 locus were found in two erythroleukemia cell lines independently induced by F-MuLV and one leukemic cell line derived from the spleen of a mouse infected with the polycythemia strain of Friend leukemia virus. The deduced amino acid sequence of a cDNA corresponding to a transcript originating from genomic DNA adjacent to Fli-2 is identical to that of the human heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A1 gene, a member of the gene family of RNA-binding proteins involved in RNA splicing. In one erythroleukemia cell line, A1 expression was undetectable as a result of F-MuLV integration in one allele and loss of the other allele. These results suggest that perturbations in RNA splicing mechanisms may contribute to malignant transformation and provide direct evidence that the A1 protein is not required for cell growth.
