abstract

  • A number of independent cDNA clones of the Piry virus N gene message were identified and sequenced. From the resulting sequences and previously published data, we derived the sequence of the mRNA for this protein. Sequence similarities of the translated region of Piry virus with that of other viruses suggest that Piry virus is as distantly related to Chandipura virus as it is to the vesicular stomatitis viruses of Indiana and New Jersey serotypes. Based on the relative conservation of the amino acid sequence of the nucleocapsid protein of these vesiculoviruses, the N protein can be subdivided into at least three regions, possibly indicative of functional domains.
