The genes for the F and HN glycoprotein of a pathogenic field isolate of bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (BPIV3) were isolated, converted to cDNA, and sequenced using dideoxynucleotides. The resulting nucleotide sequences were converted to protein sequence and were compared to previously sequenced glycoprotein genes with amino acid differences in the glycoproteins of isolates expressing different phenotypes. The HN glycoprotein, involved in the attachment and release of the virus, and the F… CONTINUE READING
