Dear Harold:
I just learned that ACS has approved my Faculty Research Award application, which will help a great deal to relieve me from the heavy teaching responsibility. I wish to thank you for your letter and support.
Not much news from here, except Wynne started sequencing the activated erbB (Teddy's 7258 clone). The LTR is located about 500 to 700 nucleotides upstream from the 0.37 Kb exon (the 5' -- most exon homologous to V-erbB) and points to the same direction as erbB. The last two TTs of LTR are missing (erything [sic] else is identical to Ron's SRA-2 sequence) -- fairly convincing for upstream integration.
Congratulations for another prestigious award for Mike and you (Paul informed me). We are all happy about this. Some of us including Don and Paul are betting that when the human oncogene story is more clear, you and Mike will be going to Stockholm and dance with the Royal family!
Don told me that next year's Cold Spring Harbor Symp will be on Oncogene. If you happen to know the organizer, please tell me, I wish to write him or her to have chance to present our work.
Best Regards
Hsing-Jien 11/11/82
