Multiple recombination sites at the 5'-end of murine coronavirus RNA.


Mouse hepatitis virus (MHV), a murine coronavirus, contains a nonsegmented RNA genome. We have previously shown that MHV could undergo RNA-RNA recombination in crosses between temperature-sensitive mutants and wild-type viruses at a very high frequency (S. Makino, J.G. Keck, S.A. Stohlman, and M.M.C. Lai (1986) J. Virol. 57, 729-737). To better define the… (More)
