3 for strategies of viral replication. full length vRNA, but also subgenomic transcripts encoding structural proteins, allowing regulation of expression. The RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of (–)ssRNA viruses (Baltimore Class V) must first produce transcripts using the infecting vRNA as a template. Primary transcription may generate a fulllength viral complementary RNA (positive-strand) which acts as both mRNA for viral protein synthesis as well as a template for transcription of new viral RNA. This is typical of segmented (–)ssRNA viruses including orthomyxoviridae and most bunyaviridae.
