Disease relevance of N


High impact information on N

  • However, little if any direct sequence homology was found with N protein sequences of other rhabdoviruses [1].
  • Short amino acid sequences were found to be conserved between the N proteins of LNYV and sonchus yellow net virus (SYNV), a member of the genus Nucleorhabdovirus of plant rhabdoviruses [1].
  • The previously identified N gene was adjacent to the 3' leader RNA and began at position 91 from the 3' end of the LNYV genome [1].
  • The complete nucleocapsid (N) genes of eight Australian isolates of Lettuce necrotic yellows virus (LNYV) were amplified by reverse transcription PCR, cloned and sequenced [2].
  • A procedure is described for the detection of lettuce necrotic yellows virus (LNYV) nucleocapsid protein (N) or envelope glycoprotein (G) by immuno-blotting with their respective monoclonal antibodies [3].

Biological context of N

  • Analysis of the sequence showed that the N mRNA contained a 78-nt 5' untranslated region, followed by a 1377-nt open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 459-amino-acid protein [1].
