General annotation (Comments)
Involved in transcription initiation and cap-stealing mechanism, in which cellular capped pre-mRNA are used to generate primers for viral transcription. Binds the cap of the target pre-RNA which is subsequently cleaved by PB1. May play a role in genome replication By similarity.
Influenza RNA polymerase is composed of three subunits: PB1, PB2 and PA By similarity.
South Carolina isolate has been sequenced from formalid fixed-lung tissues of a 21-year-old male which died in 1918 at Ft. Jackson, SC. Brevig Mission isolate has been sequenced from lung tissues of an Inuit woman buried in the permafrost in a gravesite near Brevig Mission, Alaska. This sample was recovered by John Hultin, retired pathologist.
Belongs to the influenza viruses PB2 family.
