Structural studies on reovirus: discontinuities in the genome.


The double-stranded RNA genome of reovirus breaks reproducibly into ten segments upon extraction from purified virions. Reovirus-induced messenger RNA's formed in infected cells correspond in length to these ten genomic segments and some real structural and biological implication must be accorded to the ready manner in which the genome is fragmented on… (More)
