Reverse Transcriptase and Retroviral Replication


Within each viral particle, retroviruses package two copies of a single-stranded RNA genome of about 10 kb. All of the viral genomes contain three major genes, arranged in the order: 5 ́-gag–pol–env-3 ́, and some retroviruses may also have accessory genes (e.g. vif, vpr, tax, etc...). Structural proteins such as MA (matrix protein), CA (capsid protein) and… (More)
