mRNA sequence and deduced amino acid sequence of the mumps virus small hydrophobic protein gene.

The mRNA of a putative small hydrophobic protein ( SH) of mumps virus was identified in mumps virus-infected Vero cells, and its complete nucleotide sequence was determined by sequencing the genomic RNA and cDNA clones and partial sequencing of mRNA. The SH mRNA is 310 nucleotides long excluding the poly(A) and contains a single open reading frame encoding a protein of 57 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 6,719. The predicted protein is highly hydrophobic and contains a stretch of 25 hydrophobic amino acids near the amino terminus which could act as a membrane anchor region. There is no homology between the putative SH protein of mumps virus and the SH protein of simian virus 5, even though the SH genes are located in the same locus in the corresponding genome. One interesting observation is that the hydrophobic domain of simian virus 5 SH protein is at the carboxyl terminus, whereas that of mumps virus putative SH protein is near the amino terminus.[1]
