It has previously been shown that the shortest RNA (RNA 7) of influenza C viruses codes for a nonstructural (NSI) protein (Nakada et al. (1985) J. Virol. 56, 221-226). Experiments reported here indicate that RNA 7 also directs the synthesis of a second nonstructural protein via a spliced mRNA. The amino terminal 62 codons of this NS2 protein appear to be shared with the NS1 protein and the carboxyl terminal 59 amino acids are unique (derived from a +1 open reading frame in the mRNA).
