A full-length complementary DNA (cDNA) copy of the M1-2 region of the double-stranded genome of the yeast killer virus was synthesized by reverse transcription, utilizing the m in vitro transcript as template and synthetic primers for both strands. The sequence lacks any long open reading frames (ORFs). The internal portion of the M1-2 region includes the sequence that is linked to the subterminal 229 bases of the M1-1 homologous region in the S3 defective-interfering mutant of killer virus double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Thus, the probable site at which the deletion occurred in S3 has been identified.
