In contrast, the envelope glycoprotein precursor (gPr90) encoded by a replication-competent murine leukemia virus folds more homogeneously, and it is then processed and cleaved to form an extracellular glycoprotein gp70 plus a transmembrane protein p15E.

The gs3- mutation affected a second posttranslational modification of unknown type, which was manifested as production of gp70 that remained smaller than wild-type gp70 after removal of all N-linked glycans by peptide N-glycosidase F. The gs4- mutation decreased processing of gPr80 to gPr90, completely inhibited proteolytic processing of gPr90 to gp70 and Pr15(E), and prevented incorporation of envelope products into virus particles.
