Figure 1

Genomic structure of poliovirus and processing of the P3 domain of the polyprotein. The plus strand RNA genome of poliovirus is illustrated with the terminal protein VPg covalently linked to the 5' end of the RNA. The 5' nontranslated region (NTR) and 3' NTR are shown with single lines. The genome is terminated with a poly(A) tail. The polyprotein (open box) contains structural (P1) and nonstructural (P2 and P3 domains) that are processed into precursor and mature proteins. Processing of the P3 domain by 3Cpro/3CDpro is shown enlarged.
