  • By characterization of fragments, isolated from a nuclease digest of MS2 RNA, the entire nucleotide sequence of the coat gene was established. A “flower”-like model is proposed for the secondary structure. The genetic code makes use of 49 different codons to specify the sequence of the 129 amino-acids long coat polypeptide.
