The RNA polymerase of the influenza virus is responsible for the transcription and replication of the segmented RNA viral genome during infection of host cells. Polymerase function is known to be strictly dependent on interaction with its RNA promoter, but no attempts to investigate whether the virion RNA (vRNA) promoter stabilizes the polymerase have been… CONTINUE READING
