Abstract

Sequence analysis of the region of the mumps virus genome encoding the putative small hydrophobic protein gene confirms that it is a highly variable region. Jeryl Lynn, the mumps vaccine strain used in the U.K., is shown to be a mixture of two closely related viruses, both probably of American origin.
