There is substantial evidence that oncogenes (v-onc) of acute transforming retroviruses have been acquired by transduction of cellular genes (c-onc) with retroviruses. Feline leukaemia virus (FeLV)-associated feline fibrosarcomas have proven to be extremely useful for the isolation of acute transforming retroviruses of a mammalian species. Three different v-onc genes have been identified in five acute transforming feline retroviruses. The Susan McDonough feline sarcoma virus (SMFeSV) contains the oncogene fms (ref. 4). The Snyder-Theilen (ST) and Gardner-Arnstein (GA) FeSVs contain the oncogene fes (ref. 4), which is homologous to the oncogene fps of the avian sarcoma viruses FSV, RRCII, PRCIV and 16L (refs 7, 8). The v-onc sequences of the Parodi-Irgens (PI) FeSV have recently been found to be homologous with the v-sis sequences of the simian sarcoma virus. We report here the isolation of another acute transforming feline retrovirus from a naturally occurring feline fibrosarcoma, designated the Hardy-Zuckerman 2 feline sarcoma virus (HZ2-FeSV) and demonstrate that the HZ2-FeSV and Abelson murine leukaemia virus (A-MuLV) have homologous oncogenes.
