Formation of the nsp9 dimer is necessary for viral viabilit. While the dimer retains only a slight advantage over the monomer in RNA binding the nsp9 monomer does not function in vivo, probably because of the correct positioning of RNA in the replication complex requiring a properly dimerized nsp9 (Miknis et al, 2009)0
