General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Feline Leukemia Virus pol gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Feline leukemia virus - Feline leukemia virus, FeLV
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Feline Leukemia Virus Reverse Transcriptase
Biological function
The feline leukemia virus pol gene (FeLV-pol) encodes a reverse transcriptase (enzyme that "converts", i.e., reverse transcribes, RNA into DNA). A portion of the FeLV-pol gene that is not expressed is used together with the glycoprotein (FeLV-env) and the complete nucleoprotein (FeLV-gag) genes of the feline leukemia virus in vaccines to help preventing the disease in cats.
