Reverse genetics systems for generating recombinant influenza viruses are based on two different mechanisms for obtaining the 3′ end of the viral RNA: one uses the self-cleaving hepatitis delta virus ribozyme (HDVR), and the other uses the murine RNA polymerase I (Pol I) terminator. In this study, we employed EGFP and Renilla luciferase reporter constructs to compare the efficiency of both methods. Our results indicate that the murine Pol I terminator was more efficient than the HDVR, which will be helpful in choosing an influenza virus rescue system, as well as in establishing other RNA virus rescue systems.
