Uncapping of viral messenger RNA by phosphodiesterase of fibroblast plasma membranes

Abstract

Isolated plasma membranes from mouse fibroblast lines 3T3 and its tranformant SV-3T3 contain a phosphodiesterase (oligonucleotidase, E.C. 3.1.4.19; nucleotide pyrophosphatase, E.C. 3.6.1.9) that splits capped and methylated messenger RNA obtained from both reovirus and vesicular stomatitis virus. The isolated membranes are free of demonstrable ribonuclease… (More)
