Usage Notes

This is a CELLULAR COMPONENT (aka complex) term, so use this term for proteins that are demonstrated to be part of the viral RNA polymerase.

  • The RNA genome of the virus could be single-stranded like the bacteriophage MS2, or viruses including SARS, rubella and hanta virus.
  • The RNA genome of the virus could be double-stranded like bacteriophage phi6 or viruses like Rotaviruses.
  • It may be possible, depending on the evidence in a scientific article, to select a more specific term. Consider:
