Do you know why potyviruses generate inclusion bodies as part of a translational strategy?

I tried to find it on the web, but not many of them are that specific and hard to understand.
thanks

Sounds like a class assignment. Here is some help - halfway down the page there is a chart explaining what the various proteins produced are thought to do:

Nuclear inclusions in the Tobacco Etch Virus are proteases, enzymes which cleave the large polyprotein which is the primary product of the expression of the viral RNA.

its not a class assigment and need to be that detailed... just a short answer would do, the 2nd article is massive, so it is a protase, but how does it help the virus?
