Suppose you can fluorescently label one of genome segments of influenza virus and employ a confocal microscope to image the location of fluorescent label in the cell. If you allow the labelled virus to infect the cell line which permits proper trafficking of virus, but doesn’t allow genome replication in which cellular compartment would you expect the fluorescent label to accumulate?
Select the correct answer.
Nucleus, Endosomes, Endoplasmic Reticulum or Cytoplasm
By using the same technique in the problem above, where would you anticipate the fluorescent label to accumulate if cells were treated with the drug which inhibits the activity of viral M2 ion channel?
