UNSPECIFIED. (1992) EFFECT OF CHANGES IN THE NUCLEOTIDE-SEQUENCE OF THE P-GENE OF RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS ON THE ELECTROPHORETIC MOBILITY OF THE P-PROTEIN. VIRUS GENES, 6 (1). pp. 53-62. ISSN 0920-8569Full text not available from this repository.
A consensus sequence for the P protein gene of the RSN-2 strain of respiratory syncytial (RS) virus was obtained by PCR amplification of cDNA obtained by reverse transcription. This established that the extent of sequence variation between two P genes of strains of antigenic subtype B is similar to that among A strains, confirming the conservation of P genes within subtypes and the divergence of the two antigenic subtypes of RS virus. The P protein of RS virus exhibits anomalous electrophoretic mobility with respect to its molecular weight. In vitro transcription and translation of RSN-2 strain cDNA possessing single point mutations revealed that substitutions involving charged amino acids in the carboxy-terminal region had a marked effect on the electrophoretic mobility of the P protein.
