    Abstract: Marek's disease virus (MDV) is a highly cell-associated oncogenic alphaherpesvirus that causes chicken T-cell lymphoma. MD is currently controlled by vaccination; however, MDV strains tend to develop increased virulence. Distinct diversity and point mutations are present in the Meq proteins, the major oncoproteins of MDV, suggesting that changes in... Show More
