The sequence of the 3'-terminal 91 nucleotides of alfalfa mosaic virus RNA 4, the messenger for the viral coat protein, has been elucidated. A fragment containing the 3' terminus of the RNA was obtained by mild digestion with RNase T1. The primary structure of the fragment was deduced by labeling it in vitro at its 5' terminus and application of RNA sequencing techniques. The sequence is completely extracistronic and is believed to contain the binding sites for the viral coat protein and replicase.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
