Abstract

Four mutants of polyoma virus lacking endonuclease HindII site I were isolated and characterized with respect to the VP1 coding sequence. Three of these mutants had deletions that removed 0.2 to 0.3% of the genome. All three deletion mutants encoded VP1 proteins that were smaller than wild type and that lacked one or more tryptic peptides normally found in the wild-type VP1 protein. Our results suggest that Hind II site I is at, or very near, the carboxy terminal end of the coding sequence for VP1. A model for the peptide organization in that region is presented.
