Picornavirus RNA translation: roles for cellular proteins

Graham Belsham, N. Sonenberg

Research output: Contribution to journalReviewpeer-review


Picornavirus RNA is translated within cells even when cellular cap-dependent protein synthesis is blocked. The efficiency of recognition of the viral RNA by the translational apparatus can determine viral tropism. The roles of cellular translation-initiation factors and other RNA-binding proteins in viral RNA-mediated protein synthesis are discussed.
