Cloning of cDNA to a yeast viral double-stranded RNA and comparison of three viral RNAs.

We have constructed recombinant DNA clones containing small complementary DNA (cDNA) sequences homologous to portions of a 4.8-kb yeast viral double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) (L1) that codes for the viral capsid polypeptide. Neither the viral dsRNA nor its in vitro transcript is polyadenylated; hence the cDNAs were synthesized by reverse transcriptase on the in… CONTINUE READING
