Four virus-specific transcripts have been identified in murine cells infected with Minute-Virus-of-Mice (MVM). These RNAs, 4.8, 3.3, 3.0 and 1.8 kilobases in length, designated R1 to R4 respectively, are all transcribed from the virion (-) strand of DNA and they are all polyadenylated and spliced. The R1 transcript is derived from sequences that reside on the genome between 4.0 and 95 map units (mu). Transcript R2 is composed of exon sequences derived from mu coordinates 4.0-10.0, 40-46 and 48… CONTINUE READING
