The nucleoprotein of negative-strand RNA viruses forms a major component of the ribonucleoprotein complex that is responsible for viral transcription and replication. However, the precise role of nucleoprotein in viral RNA transcription and replication is not clear. Here we show that nucleoprotein of influenza A virus is entirely dispensable for replication and transcription of short viral RNA-like templates in vivo, suggesting that nucleoprotein represents an elongation factor for the viral ...Expand abstract
