Moving VPg[edit]

I'm going to move the section on VPg to the Picornavirus article because it is too specific for this article. Xenobiologista (talk) 18:46, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Merge/Rename?[edit]

Would anyone mind if I renamed this article to RNA-dependent RNA polymerase and merged RNA replicase into it? Narayanese (talk) 13:02, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Only negative-stranded RNA virus?[edit]

In the 2nd paragraph, it is written that "RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) is an essential protein encoded in the genomes of all RNA-containing viruses with no DNA stage that have sense negative RNA", however, I can't understand what "that have sense negative RNA" means. Does it mean that RdRp is essential for all negative-stranded RNA virus? If so, I think we should remove this sentence because RdRp is essential for not only (-) RNA virus but also (+) and dsRNA virus, according to references. Thank you.

Plant RDR[edit]

And what about plant RNA-dependent RNA polymerases? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.113.47.253 (talk) 09:37, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

I am interesting in the polymerase, i want to collect more details about the polymerase , such as : what is the best template for RdRp synthesize RNA in vitro? if i use Poly(rc) as template , how long of the poly(rc)?
