Transcription and Translation
Unique features in the replication scheme of poxviruses, exemplified by vaccinia virus, which include cytoplasmic DNA replication and involvement of core enzymes, have generated wide interest in these agents as models for investigating phenomena of transcription and translation pertinent to the eukaryotes and their viruses. Such research activities are reflected in numerous publications from which a fairly clear and detailed understanding of RNA and protein syntheses has emerged.
