Identification of a new mumps virus lineage by nucleotide sequence analysis of the SH gene of ten different strains.

Author information

Division of Genetic Engineering, Queen's University of Belfast.


The SH gene and its flanking sequences have been analysed for 10 strains of mumps virus (MuV) and compared to 5 others. A new lineage has been identified among UK isolates. Changes in the transcription pattern could not be correlated with differences in the sequences of the F-SH and SH-HN intergenic regions of the genome.
