The focus of this thesis research was to clarify the role of host Nxf1 in influenza viral mRNA nuclear export. This study aims to define the nuclear mRNA export pathways of influenza viral mRNA. If viral mRNAs are discovered to utilize neither known mRNA nuclear export pathway this would indicate the mRNA exports via undefined mRNA nuclear export pathway. This might be an atypical pathway not utilized by many host mRNAs and thus might reveal novel antiviral target. 293T (Human embryonic kidney cells) and A549 (Human lung epithelial) cells were purchased from ATCC American Tissue Culture Collection.
