Specificity in transcription of the reovirus genome.


Reovirus contains double-stranded ribonucleic acid with a molecular weight of approximately 107 daltons. 1 2 This RNA exists in the virion as a continuous linear structure, but it is extraordinarily susceptible to breakage.3-5 When isolated by any of the commonly used extraction techniques, the major portion of viral RNA appears as fragments with lengths of… (More)
