Assuming 10% of hepatocytes are infected, this amounts to 50 particles per cell per day. Hepatocytes generally maintain a low level of intracellular RNA; approx. 3×1011 RNA molecules are produced daily. Thus, as with HBV, there is evidence that a substantial portion of released particles are replication-defective virions, or naked core structures. With a virion half-life of just 4–7 h, most patients have an understandably low serum titer. 4. CONCLUSION: FUTURE TREATMENT STRATEGIES It is apparent from the above discussion that, given the compactness of HBV and HCV genomes, conserved sites exhibiting multiple essential functions can be readily identified.

These protein aggregates are tethered to ER membranes by the NS4A peptide. Dissociation of replication complexes, or disruption of their anchorage to membranes, presents possible means to inhibit RNA replication. Also, the recently solved crystal structures of NS5B and the NS3 helicase domain will facilitate the rational design of inhibitors. HCV RNA replication appears to be influenced in subtle ways by the NS5A protein. Two forms of NS5A, differing in the extent of serine phosphorylation, are generally present within infected cells.
