In this study the L segment and the 5' and 3' termini of the S, M and L segments of the prototype Tula hantavirus (TUL) were sequenced, thus completing the first determination of the genome sequence of a hantavirus that has not been linked to any human disease. The TUL L segment comprises 6541 nt with one ORF of 6459 nt in the antigenome sense. This ORF potentially encodes a 2153 aa protein with a predicted molecular mass of 247 kDa. The amino acid sequence includes all the motifs conserved in… CONTINUE READING
