  • a Functional half-life (in minutes) of respective mRNA was calculated from the results shown in Figure 7.

  • b Functional half-life (in minutes) of respective mRNA was calculated from the results shown in Figure 8.

  • c Not determined because of poor expression under the experimental conditions.

  • b Not determined because of overlapping of gp32 and gprIIB.
