Molecular Biology of Zoonotic Disease

Influenza virus consists of eight ssRNA segments coated with viral nucleoproteins molecules which represent beads on string model. The size of these segments is approximately ~0.9 to 2.3 kb and the total genome size is 13.5 kb approximately. The viral RNA genome consists of 12 and 13 conserved nucleotides at 3` and 5` ends which bind to each other and form a pan-handle like structure associated with RNA polymerase.


Ribonuceoprotein (RNP) complexes serve as functional templates for RNA synthesis of influenza virus. In an infected stage, both negative (viral RNA) and positive (complementary RNA) are present but the intermediary viral mRNA is absent. Four RNP associated proteins are requires for transcription and replication of segment of genome
