We determined the nucleotide (nt) sequence of the small hydrophobic (SH), attachment glycoprotein (G), and RNA polymerase (L) genes, plus the leader and trailer regions of the Colorado strain of Avian metapneumovirus subtype C (aMPV/C) in order to complete the genome sequencing. The complete genome comprised of 13,134 nucleotides, with a 40 nt leader at its 3' end and a 45 nt trailer at its 5' end. The aMPV/C L gene was the largest with 6173 nt and consisting of a single open reading frame… CONTINUE READING
