Transcription initiation factor activity of vaccinia virus capping enzyme is independent of mRNA guanylylation.


Cytoplasmic extracts of vaccinia virus-infected HeLa cells blocked in DNA replication were capable of transcribing templates containing the minimal promoter sequences derived from three viral intermediate-stage genes (A1L, A2L, and G8R) but not promoters from early or late genes. One of three isolated components required for transcription copurified with… (More)
