The content and size of the poly(A) on Mengovirus RNA grown in both mouse L cells and HeLa cells have been examined. Virion RNA from either cell line could bind to poly(U) filters and contained RNase-resistant stretches of poly(A) which could be analyzed by electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels. The size of the poly(A) on the Mengovirus RNA was independent of the host cell and averaged from 50 to 70 nucleotides.
