Pox proteins are called ________________.
Early, Intermediate, Late
Pox early genes are responsible for ____________.
Dissolving core, directing DNA rep, and intermediate gene expression.
Pox intermediate genes are responsible for _________.
Regulating late gene expression

Structural proteins, RNA pol, and RNA processing.
Examples of Pox.
Special characteristics of pox are ______, _________, ________, ________.
- Virus coded enzymes for transcription and RNA processing (late proteins) are packaged in core.
- Early RNA is made in the core
- DNA replicates in the cytoplasm using only viral proteins
