Abstract

Peptide mapping of all of the Sendai virion polypeptides and the viral polypeptides synthesized in infected cells has shown that C (MW ∼22,000), which has been found only in infected cells, is unique and is thus a candidate for a nonstructural polypeptide. It has also been found that the L polypeptide of Sendai virus is unique, that polypeptide 5 is derived from NP, that polypeptide A is host-cell actin, and that the polypeptides L, P, HN, F0, NP, and M have the same peptide composition in virions as in infected cells.
