REPLICATION of influenza viruses is believed to require functions provided by the host cell nucleus because first, influenza replication is inhibited by actinomycin D and α amanitin, which prevent transcription of complementary RNA from virion RNA in the first few hours following infection1–4; and second, migration of viral proteins between host cell cytoplasm and nucleus occurs during the virus replicative cycle5–8.
