The nucleotide sequence of the leader and the gene encoding the nucleocapsid protein (NP) of mumps virus Miyahara strain have been determined. The leader sequence is 55 nucleotides in length and the NP gene is 1845 nucleotides in length, exclusive of poly(A). The NP gene codes for a protein of 549 amino acids, with a calculated molecular weight of 61,365. For epitope mapping, a series of NPs from which C-termini were serially deleted were expressed in vitro from five mRNA constructs and were… CONTINUE READING
