Genetic variability of the glycoprotein genes of current wild-type measles isolates.

Abstract

The glycoprotein coding sequences from three wild-type measles viruses isolated in the United States during 1988-1989 were examined by mRNA templated sequencing to determine whether contemporary strains have undergone genetic changes relative to the vaccine strain, Moraten. These studies revealed variation in the hemagglutinin (HA) gene and, to a far lesser… (More)
