  • The vaccinia virus core contains a 195 kb double stranded DNA genome, a multi-subunit RNA polymerase, transcription initiation and termination factors and mRNA processing enzymes. Upon infection, vaccinia virus early gene transcription takes place in the virus core. Transcription initiates at early promoters and terminates in response to a termination motif, UUUUUNU, in the nascent mRNA. Early gene transcription termination requires the vaccinia virus termination factor, VTF, a single stranded… CONTINUE READING
