  • Amino acid sequence stretches similar to the four most conserved segments of positive strand RNA viral RNA‐dependent RNA polymerases have been identified in proteins of four dsRNA viruses belonging to three families, i.e. P2 protein of bacteriophage φ6 (Cystoviridae), RNA 2 product of infectious bursa disease virus (Birnaviridae), λ3 protein of reovirus, and VP1 of bluetongue virus (Reoviridae). High statistical significance of the observed similarity was demonstrated, allowing identification… CONTINUE READING
