Baculoviruses have adapted novel tactics to transcribe their genes during the late stages of replication. These include a DNA-directed RNA polymerase which is evolutionarily divergent from cellular polymerases. The viral RNA polymerase is a multisubunit and multifunctional RNA polymerase that has the ability to recognize late promoters, transcribe the linked genes, and process the transcripts at both 5' and 3' ends. The viral RNA polymerase binds to late viral gene promoter elements that are… CONTINUE READING
