Abstract : Temperature-sensitive mutants have been examined to determine their ability to incorporate 3H-uridine into viral specified RNA and complementation patterns. Results of RNA precursor incorporation experiments suggest that mutants may be separated on their ability to synthesize RNA at the nonpermissive temperature. Several mutants have been examined to determine their complementation groups. No complementation has been observed with the very few mutants examined.
