Herpesvirus saimiri DNA contains repetitive DNA at its termini that comprises about 30% of the virion DNA. After labeling late in infection, cytoplasmic RNA derived from these repetitive sequences was found to be below our limits of detection. Less than 1%, if any, of the viral-specific cytoplasmic poly(A)-containing RNAs contain sequences hybridizable to the isolated repetitive DNA.
