Translation and identification of the viral mRNA species isolated from subcellular fractions of vesicular stomatitis virus-infected cells.

The cytoplasm of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV)-infected BHK cells has been separated into a fraction containing the membrane-bound polysomes and the remaining supernatant fraction. Total poly(A)-containing RNA was isolated from each fraction and purified. A 17S class of VSV mRNA was found associated almost exclusively with the membrane-bound polysomes… CONTINUE READING
