The antigenic determinants of the avian leukovirus proteins p27, p19, p15, and p12 were examined by radioimmunoassay. There was no evidence of antigenic cross-reactivity among these polypeptides, indicating that they are four distinct components. The concentration of the proteins p27, p19, and p15 in the infected cell was measured and found greatly increased, indicating that synthesis of these proteins is induced after virus infection.
