The determination of the total 5,224 base-pair DNA sequence of the virus SV40 has enabled us to locate precisely the known genes on the genome. At least 15.2% of the genome is presumably not translated into polypeptides. Particular points of interest revealed by the complete sequence are the initiation of the early t and T antigens at the same position and the fact that the T antigen is coded by two non-contiguous regions of the genome; the T antigen mRNA is spliced in the coding region.

Amino acid sequence homology between polyoma and SV40 tumour antigens deduced from nucleotide sequences
TLDR
Evidence is presented here for nucleotide homologies in regions of the viral genomes that code for portions of t antigen and the T antigen that are previously undetected by hybridisation.
BK virus DNA sequence coding for the t and T antigens and evaluation of methods for determining sequence homology
TLDR
The DNA sequence of the early region of the human papovavirus BK (MM strain) was determined and the deduced T antigens in BK virus share 71% amino acid homology with those in simian virus 40, whereas the coding sequences of the two viruses share 70% DNA homology.
Nucleotide sequence of simian virus 40 DNA: structure of the middle segment of the HindII + III restriction fragment B (sixth part of the T antigen gene) and codon usage.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the simian virus 40 DNA region that lies between the EcoRII restriction endonuclease cleavage sites at map positions 0.214 and 0.281 appears to be determined by partial chemical degradation of terminally labeled DNA fragments according to the procedure of Maxam and Gilbert, and the non-randomness of codon usage is similar to that previously discussed for the late part of the genome.
Nucleotide sequence of the region encompassing the JC virus origin of DNA replication
TLDR
Comparisons with the analogous regions in the polyomaviruses simian virus 40 (SV40) and BK virus (BKV) confirm the close evolutionary relationship of these three viruses.
BK virus DNA: complete nucleotide sequence of a human tumor virus.
TLDR
The sequence of the deduced proteins in BK virus shares 73 percent amino acid homology with those in SV40, whereas the DNA sequence ofthe two viruses shares 70 percent homology, suggesting close evolutionary relationship.
Nucleotide sequence of the simian virus 40 Hind II + III restriction fragment J and the total amino acid sequence of the major structural protein VP1.
TLDR
The HindII + III restriction fragment J (Hind-J) represents 4.58% of the simian virus 40 genome and is expressed as part of the major, late 16-S messenger RNA, which codes for the structural protein VP1.

Nucleotide sequence of the simian virus 40 small-t gene.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the segment of simian virus 40 DNA between standard map positions 0.53 and 0.65, i.e., approximately half of the restriction fragment Hind A, is reported, and it is concluded that the large-T antigen must be coded for by two noncontiguous DNA segments.
The primary structure of regions of SV 40 DNA encoding the ends of mRNA.
Structure of a large segment of the genome of simian virus 40 that does not encode known proteins.
TLDR
Analysis of the sequence of late strand RNA suggests that this RNA is not covalently linked to the mRNA that encodes structural proteins, and there is a sequence of almost 800 nucleotides of simian virus 40 DNA that probably does not code for known viral proteins.
Nucleotide sequence of the simian-virus-40 DNA region coding for the carboxyl-terminal part of the T antigen.
TLDR
The regions in SV40 DNA from which the non-translated regions of the early and late mRNAs are transcribed overlap over nearly their entire length, and of particular interest may be the carboxyl terminus of the T antigen.
Evidence for ‘splicing’ of SV40 16S mRNA
TLDR
Large segments of the SV40 genome have now been sequenced and the expression of the viral genetic information can be studied in molecular detail, including the codes for VP1, the main structural protein of the virion.
Spliced segments at the 5′ terminus of adenovirus 2 late mRNA*
TLDR
Four segments of viral RNA may be joined together during the synthesis of mature hexon mRNA, a model is presented for adenovirus late mRNA synthesis that involves multiple splicing during maturation of a larger precursor nuclear RNA.
Comparison of the nucleotide sequence of the messenger RNA for the major structural protein of SV40 with the DNA sequence encoding the amino acids of the protein.
TLDR
The results indicate that a segment of about 200 nucleotides of RNA transcribed from a distant part of SV40 DNA have become linked to the transcript of VP1 codons by a bond resistant to phenol extraction and denaturation in formamide.
