Targets in Negative Strand RNA Viruses (Excluding Ortho- and Paramyxoviruses)

  • David H. L. Bishop
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 73)


The negative strand RNA virus families include, in addition to the Orthomyxoviridae and Paramyxoviridae, the Rhabdoviridae, Arenaviridae and Bunyaviridae. The viruses are termed negative stranded because the virion RNA does not itself function as an mRNA, rather, in virus infected cells, complementary sequence mRNA species are transcribed from the virion RNA by the RNA polymerase (Baltimore et al., 1970).
