Detection and molecular cloning of the extreme 3'-end of HCV.

Abstract

The 3'-end region of the HCV genome is composed of three characteristic elements: conventional 3'-untranslated region, subsequent poly (U) stretch, and a newly identified 3'-terminal sequence named the 3'X tail (1,2). The 3'X tail is thought to be a common structure of the HCV genome, and should have important roles in initiation and regulation of the genomic replication of HCV.
