Susceptibility to Rauscher leukemia virus is determined by the 2 genes Rv 1 and Rv 2. Loci Rv 1 and Rv 2 determine the susceptibility to LLV and SFFV, respectively. On locus Rv 1 resistance and on locus Rv 2 susceptibility is dominant. The 2 genes segregate independently of each other. In Rv 2(S/S) and Rv 2(S/r) mice the degree of tumor specific antibody production is determined by the Rv 1 locus. In the case of genotype Rv 1(R/R) Rv 2(S/r), interferon production may be a factor determining resistance.
