Abstract

The genome sequence of the rabies-related virus Mokola virus (genus has been completed by sequencing the L gene, which consists of 6384 nucleotides encoding a 2127 amino acid polymerase. Alignment of the Mokola virus L protein with other polymerases from the virus order defined three domains: a divergent NH-terminal domain, a highly conserved central domain carrying most of the functional motifs and a COOH- terminal domain with alternating conserved and divergent regions. A statistical study outlined the stringency of conservation of glycine, acidic (D, E) and basic (K, R, H) amino acids in polymerases, particularly as key residues of the conserved motifs.
