Scientific Background: Novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has caused the pandemic of the respiratory diseases (COVID-19) around the world in 2020 (1). Coronavirus RNA genome encodes a complex replication machinery consisting of 16 viral non-structural proteins (NSPs). NSP7 and NSP8 stabilize regions of NSP12 (RNA-dependent RNA polymerase; RdRp) involved in RNA binding and are essential for a highly active NSP12 polymerase complex. NSP7 has been suggested to confer RNA-binding properties to the trimeric polymerase complex (2). NSP8 has been shown to act as an oligo(U)-templated polyadenylyltransferase and a robust (mono/oligo) adenylate transferase (3). The NSP7/NSP8/NSP12 polymerase complex associates with NSP14 which is required to safeguard coronavirus replication fidelity (2).
