Feline Leukemia Virus Reverse Transcriptase
EN
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.
