- Evidence that the polymerase of respiratory syncytial virus initiates RNA replication in a nontemplated fashionSarah L Noton
Division of Pathology and Neuroscience, University of Dundee Medical School, Dundee DD1 9SY, United Kingdom
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:10226-31. 2010..These findings show that the RSV replicase selects ATP and initiates at the correct position, independently of the first nucleotide of the template, suggesting a mechanism by which highly accurate replication initiation is achieved...
