The sequences of the S3 genome segments of reovirus serotype 1 and 2 prototype strains are presented and these sequences are compared with the sequence of the serotype 3 S3 genome segment. The S3 genome segment encodes the nonstructural protein sigma NS which possesses affinity for ssRNA and appears to function in reovirus morphogenesis. The three S3 genome segments are closely related: all are 1198 nucleotides long and possess a single long open reading frame 366 codons long. They exhibit a… CONTINUE READING
