Amino acid sequence alignments of the predicted RacPyV LT-Ag, small T-antigen (sT-Ag), viral protein (VP) 1, and VP2 were generated by using ClustalW, implemented in MEGA5 (www.
In every construct, the tag sequence included codes for the 11-aa KPPTPPPEPET epitope of simian virus 40 (SV40) large T-antigen (31,32).
Furthermore, the integrated viral genome may harbor mutations in the T-antigen coding sequence, resulting in truncation of the corresponding helicase protein (8).
