Abstract

Duplex adeno-associated virus (AAV) DNA, produced by annealing plus and minus virion single strands, has been digested with several bacterial restriction endonucleases. These studies reveal the existence of alternate secondary structures at the termini of duplex AAV DNA. Analysis of the sites of endo R . Hpa II cleavage, the products of complete endo R . Hpa II digestion, and the multiple terminal secondary structures leads to the conclusion that there are two possible nucleotide sequences at each end of AAV DNA. A model that attributes the terminal nucleotide sequence heterogeneity to two possible orientations of the first 120 nucleotides at each end of the DNA is proposed; in one case the sequence is 1 to 120; in the other case the sequence is inverted. An origin of the inversion is suggested based on previously described intermediates in AAV DNA replication.
