We have developed a baculovirus delivery system that enables tetracycline-regulated expression of polII-derived hepatitis C virus (HCV) transcripts in hepatocyte-derived cell lines (McCormick et al., 2002). As part of a study to determine whether such transcripts are replication competent, the transcription start site of the tetracycline-regulable promoter(More)
Hyperphosphorylation of NS5A is thought to play a key role in controlling hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA replication. Using a tetracycline-regulable baculovirus delivery system to introduce non-culture-adapted HCV replicons into HepG2 cells, we found that a point mutation in the active site of the viral polymerase, NS5B, led to an increase in NS5A(More)
