This article presents an update on influenza activity in the U.S. from October 3 to December 11, 2010. Data showed low influenza activity in most regions of the country. World Health Organization (WHO) and National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System collaborating laboratories reported 2,807 cases of influenza, with 57 percent were identified as cases of influenza A viruses.

    Influenza A viral ribonucleoprotein (vRNP) complexes comprise the eight genomic negative-sense RNAs, each of which is bound to multiple copies of the vRNP and a trimeric viral polymerase complex. The influenza virus life cycle centres on the vRNPs, which in turn rely on host cellular processes...
