Apple stem grooving virus (ASGV) RNA was translated in a rabbit reticulocyte lysate system and shown to direct the synthesis of several polypeptides of ranging from 200K to 43K. A polypeptide of 200K was a major product, but no polypeptide with electrophoretic mobility the same as that of the ASGV coat protein was synthesized. Immunoprecipitation experiments showed that a polypeptide of 200K was selectively precipitated by antiserum against purified ASGV. These results indicate that ASGV coat protein is translated as part of a 200K polyprotein.
