Nucleotide sequence of the coding and flanking regions of the human parainfluenza virus type 3 fusion glycoprotein gene.

The complete nucleotide sequence of the human parainfluenza virus type 3 (HPIV3) fusion (F) protein gene has been determined. The HPIV3 F gene is 1851 nucleotides long including six U residues in the genomic RNA, which probably direct synthesis of the first few nucleotides in the F mRNA polyadenylate tail. The HPIV3 F gene contains a single long open… CONTINUE READING
