The bluetongue virus core: a nano-scale transcription machine.

Abstract:

The replication phase of the bluetongue virus (BTV) infection cycle is initiated when the virus core is delivered into the cytoplasm of a susceptible host cell. The 10 segments of the viral genome remain packaged within the core throughout the replication cycle, helping to prevent the activation of host defence mechanisms that would be caused by direct contact between the dsRNA and the host cell cytoplasm. However, the BTV core is a biochemically active 'nano-scale' machine, which can simulta...
