Abstract
A review on hepadnavirus and its DNA replication. The processes of covalently closed circular (CCC) DNA formation, viral RNA transcription, packaging, and viral DNA synthesis within virus nucleocapsids are discussed, together with their relation to factors that control CCC DNA amplification. The structure of the viral polymerase is analyzed with respect to known activities of this polypeptide and to functions that may potentially be carried out by this enzyme. [on SciFinder (R)]
