The sequence of the M RNA of an isolate of La Crosse virus.

The middle-size (M) genomic RNA of a New York State, U.S.A. isolate of La Crosse (LAC) virus has been cloned by a random priming procedure and its nucleotide sequence determined by the dideoxy method. The RNA was found to be 4526 nucleotides in length and to have a base composition of 34.2% U, 27.8% A, 20.6% C and 17.4% G. There is a single, long open… (More)
