Rev protein regulates nuclear export of viral mRNAs that contain a 240-base RNA sequence termed the Rev-response element (RRE). We demonstrate that an 88-base truncated RRE encompassing a known Rev binding site can mediate Rev responsiveness in vivo. Two tandem copies of this mutant function as efficiently as the full-length RRE.
