Avian leukemias and lymphomas are caused primarily by retroviruses and herpesviruses. The protooncogenes activated by avian retroviral insertions in B & T-cell lymphomas will be summarized, with discussion on a new common insertion site, bravo, associated with RAV-O LTR insertion. Two novel interactions between avian retroviruses and Marek's disease herpesvirus (MDV) will be described: one involves direct interactions between putative viral oncoproteins and the other integrative recombination between these two viruses.
