The parainfluenza virus type 1 P/C gene uses a very efficient GUG codon to start its C' protein
Journal of Virology
Parainfluenza virus type 1 (PIV1) and Sendai virus (SEN) are very closely related, but the PIVI P/C gene does not contain the ACG codon which initiates the SEN C' protein. Nevertheless, a protein corresponding to the PIV1 C' protein was observed both in vivo and in vitro. The initiation site of this protein maps upstream of the PIV1 C protein AUG in a region that does not contain an AUG codon. We have used site-directed mutagenesis to demonstrate that the PIV1 C' protein initiates from a GUGdoi:10.1128/jvi.66.3.1765-1768.1992 fatcat:nht5aaoow5co3e2eqxz5eu6pie
