Site on the vesicular stomatitis virus genome specifying polyadenylation and the end of the L gene mRNA.

The 5'-terminal nucleotide sequence from positions 50 to 130 of vesicular stomatitis virus RNA was determined indirectly by using a defective interfering particle RNA which contains covalently linked genomic minus and antigenomic plus sense RNAs. The last 18 nucleotides of the L gene coding for in the viral polymerase were identified and isolated by… CONTINUE READING
